What are the thoughts on this? How do you think it would do for Hogs?

would prolly work fine. they imply you can use standard ar mags not sure if its true. 30cal means you can load some good effective hunting bullets. this round would pretty much require you to load your own to make it affordable with effective bulllets. its basically a better version of the 7.62x39.

anything you can hunt with a 30-30 effectively, this should do the same. i doubt its much over a 150-200 yard range round for hunting purposes.

It doesn't blow my socks down but if you keep it inside 150ish yards you should be OK. I don't see myself rushing out to get one though.

If you are familiar with .300Whisper, this is essentially the same round. But it will be avail from Remington, which means ammo selection and availability will be high.

With the light bullets it is a very good performer, and with the heavy bullets it is easily suppressible.

It uses standard 5.56x45 magazines, buffers and BCG's, which is a big plus.

My next AR will be in .300AACBlk.

Just ordered one this morning after doing some research the last couple weeks. I liked my 7.62x39 but like the though of being able to use a standard 5.56 Bolt, magazines, etc. The only thing you have to change is the barrel and ammunition. I want something heavier than 5.56 but something I have parts for already. And the testers have said it is much softer shooting than x39.

The suppressed stats look good. Theres been talk of guys giving up on their MP5s for this round.

Ammunition is around $21 a box for 220gr. subsonic and $12.99 for 123gr. supersonic. I just purchased a box of x39 at WalMart for $16. So if your comparing copper and brass to copper and brass the ammo isnt bad at all. Granted there isnt any cheap Russian steel.

And yes, its probably going to be great for hogs. Wilson Combat put a 300 AAC BLK rig together and has taken hogs and deer.

Good info on the .300 AAC BLK:

I like it! Of course it's not .458SOCOM but not all of us can be winners

I'm not sure how well .458S would suppress. I dont know cost on it either but surely its more than $12 per 20rds for factory stuff. And its probably not even close to as manageable lol.

Looks like a pretty anemic round to me. I have heard the same thing about the 6.5 Grendel. The impressions that I have gotten from most is that any brass that is going to fit into an AR15 is not going to have enough powder behind in it to really push a 123gr. bullet that hard. However, take this with a grain of salt as I mentioned before, it's just the impression of some shooters I know with some different caliber AR15s.

Nothing at all like 6.5Grendel. 6.5G is a great long range rd that works in a standard AR, but with dedicated mags.

.300 Whisper/.300BLK were designed to be 100% reliable in a standard AR platform using standard 5.56 mags. Designed to be essentially silent when firing 220gr bullets through a suppressor, yet turn in respectable velocities and range with 110-123gr bullets. It does everything it was intended to do, and does it very accurately with complete reliability and no high pressures.

Its reported that the 123gr loads mirror 7.62x39. I wouldn't call x39 anemic by any stretch.
