    Basically I was wondering what your thoughts on the two guns. I want an AR15 but the AAC 300 is sweet with the a suppressor and a subsonic cartridge. Wondering if it would be worth getting both, or just one or the other.

    Good luck getting a hold of AAC's Honey Badger. From my understanding it's a one off and there aren't any plans for production runs.

    I wouldn't have just a 300blk AR. If it's your first AR go w/ 5.56. or both.

    I'm not here to argue but I'd be willing to bet what you saw was someones rendention of what AAC calls the Honey Badger. You can't even get an AAC 300BLK upper for under $1K. I have a PM out to one of the guys involved in the developement and testing of the 300 BLK so we'll find out soon.

    That response they gave you is absolutely bursting at the seems with enthusiasm. They should try to tone that down in future responses.

    I know right. Probably tired of the bad information, rumors flying around, and people that refuse to read up on it for themselves then question others.

    The AAC is alive and well and being sold in a wide variety of places. The HB is a totally different story. Sounds like someone was trying to make a sale. Not your fault.

    AAC honey badger would be a lot of fun but you could just build a short barreled rifle in .300 blackout with an integrated suppressor but the stock would be a different story. Not quite sure on how to do the mp5 style collapsible stock on the ar-15

    They are made by Loki. I imagine there is some tuning involved in order to get the rifle to fun correctly w/ that short of a buffer system.

    How hard is it to find 300 blackout ammo... Ive been to the site and it says remington makes the ammo and there is some reload information on there. But, do you have to special order it from remington or can you go to a lgs or sporting goods store and pick it up?
