.50 is bigger than .458 and size does matter...

Sure. Both of them have the ballistics of an airborne battleship.

Why not spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on a platform for a round that is designed to hit like a truck at spitting distance but be a moonshot to reach 225 yards???

It has been proven on hogs and deer out to 200 yards by guys such as the owner of Wilson Combat. If you want to read up on the .300 Silencer Talk has an entire .300 AAC BLK section.

Dillinger is correct about it being developed for suppression. However, it is a great option for AR guys wanting something more accurate but w/ the energy of the x39 round and many more ammo options.

Most of the testing and numbers given are from a 16" barrel.

My Leupold should be in tomorrow so I can get mine to the range and do some testing myself.

The .300AAC BLK is essentially the same as the .300 Whisper, which has been around for about 30 years. It never hit the mainstream because JD Jones refused to let it go mainstream. No SAAMI specs, etc. But the rd has merit. As JD mentioned it really shines when suppressed and out of SBRs.

The lighter, faster loads are fairly impressive. The heavy loads suppress very well. My buddy uses his AAC 9mm suppressor on his Whisper and it works great.

I'm with you Shi. Now that a major maker is behind the .300AAC BLK and factory ammo, brass and data will be available I'll need one.

she would be hot without the ugly tattoos and cannibal earrings. facial piercings and those cannibal ear loops reminds me of a bulls in a pasture with rings in their noses... all branded up and ready to be led around. totally not sexy.

She was at the SHOT show! In the booth. She actually knew quite a bit about their products.

However all the ink and the tackle box that exploded all over her head needs to go.

There is such a thing as "TOO FAR" when it comes "enhancing" your personal appearance.
