Well, finally (2 weeks ago) finished up the 150 rounds I received quite a while ago.

Overall the .300BLK shoots great. I know its a small sample but nothing even resembling a malfunction. It's smooooth.

I will admit I have plans to remove the 3-9 Leupold Mark AR and get another Aimpont or EoTech for it. It was going to be my hunting rifle but nobody I know hunts predators such as coyotes (no, not the guys who smuggle illegals).

Now I'm waiting for the cheap stuff to come out so I can hit the range.

It really wasn't cheap, thats why I only got 150 rounds . It was being custom loaded for me.

The cheap stuff is just around the corner. I'm looking forward to it for sure.

20 shot group from a 300 BLK AR at 100 yards with Hornady 155s and iron sights. Not shot by me. Shot prone, not from a rest.
