    Ian looking at building a lightweight 300 blackout and saw the "honey badger" and really like the stock on it. Does anyone know where I can get a stock like it?

    From what i found it is a custom stock they made, but its based off the mp5 stock. So maybe try looking for ar15 mp5 stocks? If it really is a new custom stock, then youre not gonna see it for a little while.

    Edit: apparently this thing came out in late 2011. So i think your SOL on a stock unless somebody with a HB sells theirs.

    I think it's an AAC proprietary design, that was inspired by HK.
    The buffer area of the lower would definitely be different.

    I have a new 300 BO upper for sale if you are interested.

    If you want a 300 with a stock like that you will most likely have to find a Honey Badger for sale, or at the very least an upper from one. In the picture below you will notice that AAC has a custom receiver as well as lower to accommodate the sliding section of the stock. the custom lower is probably not a necessity, but makes it more aesthetically pleasing. I had never even heard of the Honey Badger 300 until this thread, but find it to be pretty freaking cool. I wish that stock would just bolt right up to a standard mil spec upper, but unfortunately that is not the case. :mad:

    Have you checked out the videos on YouTube of it? Pretty awesome. Too bad we cannot legally own one...

    I load my own so it is a helluva lot cheaper than buying factory loads. I've already got one 16" blackout and am only a week or two away from finishing a bad ass 14.5" one.

    It's really not hard once you get the tools, dies and various supplies. It's really quite addicting. I currently load for my .308, .223 & 300 blackout. Oh and the cool thing about the blackout is that you can covert .223/5.56 brass into 300 AAC, which is a plus because I have quite a bit of .223/5.56 brass and small rifle primers. I have the few tools you need to convert them. I have not bought a single factory box of 300 AAC yet. I'm about to work up some 110 gr hunting rounds.

    Where would you say would be a good place to get the supplies?

    Reloader came fro Natchez Shooters Supply.
    Powder and primers from local gun shops.
    Dies and the various other things I found scouring the Internet..... From midway to eBay. Stuff is out there but not easy to find right now.
