300 Blk is ideal for suppression as it has subsonic ammo that will feed and cycle reliably. With subsonic ammo, a suppressed 300 Blk is Hollywood quiet. It is just one of many advantages of the cartridge.
Oddly enough, I just took a break from converting 223 brass to 300 Blk before reading this.

I think that the 300 black out that I am building is going to be bad ass with the suppressor I am going to hunt his with it!

Just the fact I read all over that some subsonic rounds have trouble cycling. I can't justify spending that much on a suppressor.

Maybe I mis-read, but I thought they had trouble cycling if no suppressor was used. If you have no suppressor, just use the standard rounds....

As far as the cost, I hear that. I'd love to go down that road, but I can't afford even the money to set up a trust for that stuff.....

There are a lot of benefits to having a suppressor. If you buy one for a 30 cal. with a Q.D. you can use it on other smaller calibers from 30cal. to 223 Just buy the Q.D. attachment for the other rifles. Then you only have one suppressor.

But of course it's efficiency will go down if you use it for other calibers. And then you'll need one for .22. And 9mm. And 45.........
