Remington R1911 is well regarded and was launched with no bugs. I know a 1911 fan who said that it is the best 1911 for under $1000, and it is only about $600.

The Beretta M9 US Army pistol is an aluminum frame. So is the Sig P228 that the FBI adopted. So is the P226 that the US Navy adopted.

I have never not seen Remington replace ammunition when asked.

And Remington 300 BLK ammunition is actually the most inspired, ambitious, and best available from any maker - and that includes many...

300 is not a version of the 308 Winchester, and AR10 rifles are huge and heavy compared to 300 BLK rifles.



Yes there is - the most popular rifle of all, the AR15.

120 companies in this short time? Yes, a wild success not seen since 40 S&W.

Companies have a hard time keeping it in stock. It tends to sell faster than it can be made.

300 BLK is not like those - it is a wild success. Millions and millions of rounds of ammunition are being made and sold. Even that small brass company (one guy I think) is selling 400,000 pieces per...

This is 30 caliber ammunition. Of course it costs more than 223.

The fact remains - for people who want to shoot 30 cal from an AR15 and want to use normal magazines with 30 round capacity - it is the best solution.

That is a WHOLE lotta people.

I am comparing it to 5.56mm because that is what the default cartridge is for the AR15, and 300 BLK is most popular on the AR15.



It is true that the LaRue PredatAR 308 is about 8 lbs. That is...

You are seriously using the term bastardized while suggesting someone get an AR lower that has a 7.62x39mm magwell?

Reloading for 300 BLK is super inexpensive. You can get 223 brass for free. If...

It makes no sense to call it pathetic compared to full power cartridges. This is not for 15 lb rifles so there is no reason to compare it to 308 or 300 WM. In an AR15 - at 6 lbs - it is a significant...

Your argument breaks down because you are not considering the extreme efficiency of 300 BLK. It has 5 grains less powder than 5.56mm, and yet it has more energy from a 16 inch barrel than 5.56mm has...

7.62/308 is great, but it does not work in AR15s - so it is not really viable for a lightweight rifle.

It comes down to 5.56mm or 300 BLK. 5.56mm is cheaper, but 9mm is also cheaper than 45 Auto....

That is something people say from time to time, but it makes no sense. 300 AAC Blackout is the AR-15 equivalent of the 7.62x39, and can hunt the same stuff as the 30-30. Neither of those cartridges...

That is false. It is more powerful than 5.56mm.

It is mostly for people who want a 30 caliber AR15. You get 30 rounds in normal 5.56mm magazines with the normal bolt. It has much better barrier...

Actually 300 AAC Blackout has more energy at 300 yards than a 357 Magnum revolver does at the muzzle.
