Re: Meet my latest build - with special thanks to Dellet

I did do the whole class with subs but that probably wasn't the best choice for the 100 yard stuff. Since it wasn't really a competition, I wanted to see how the load with the 180 grain subs held up to the 'default' on the reticle for 100 yards. Unfortunately the group size opened up so much I am n...

Re: 300 Blackout 190gr Sub-X® Subsonic - reliable and proven Subsonic round for Deer?

Proven? I don't think I've seen anyone using it here for dear yet but there's been some testing threads. Here's one http://www.300blktalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=128&t=101736 Personally I only have subsonic hunting experience with the maker bullets, specifically the 200gn rex. They sell loaded am...

Anyone have poor results with Lehigh Defense 300 Blackout 194gr. Subsonic Maximum Expansion on Deer?

I tried this Lehigh Defense 300 Blackout Whisper 194gr Subsonic Maximum Expansion on deer this year. Out of a 8.5" barrel AR with suppressor. Had a medium sized doe about 40 yards away. Took a nice relaxed, broadside shot on a doe. Doe jumped and it appeared the front shoulder was broken. Waited an ...

300 Blackout 190gr Sub-X® Subsonic - reliable and proven Subsonic round for Deer?

300 Blackout 190gr Sub-X® Subsonic, just saw a box of this at Fleet Farm.



1.) Is this a proven and reliable subsonic round for deer?



2.) If not, what is a better subsonic 300 BO round for deer?

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

thanks for the update....so there is something more than just the mags going on...pretty sure you didn't keep your original 2 mags but would have been nice to know if they worked in the "new" gun. however I also can say that the lucky 13 mag works with ALL my different 300 loads....weird Original m...

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

Update: Sent the rifle in and got it back recently. Ruger paid shipping both ways. Took about 2 months so it's good that I sent it in the off-season. Ruger sent a slip that stated that they replaced the barrel and refinished the barrel action. Apparently it's cheaper to replace the barrel since it ...

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

When I bought mine the AR mag version wasn't available or I would have bought that for sure. I can only say that in hindsight..as I should have researched a bit more on the RAR...who would have thought that a simple flush box mag would have been such a problem. 4 Rounds perfect for hunting for him,...

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

That damn rotary magazine is a POS. Had I known I would have just gotten the AR mag variant. This gun is for my son to hunt and he's learning quickly how to unjam a round shoved into the top of the barrel. Thought about trying the Lucky 13 mag from AU but it's 1/3 the price of the whole gun...and I...

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

Had problems feeding and now the 2nd magazine broke. Ruger replied to my email and said they would send an RMA for me to mail the rifle in so I will be doing that.

Shoot, I knew I shouldn't have thrown the box away!!!

Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

I now hate my Ruger American Ranch Rifle in 300 Blackout. Everytime I attempt to chamber a round it doesn't feed. I have to take the magazine out, then get the round in and then put it back in.....every single time. This is with 194gr. Lehigh Quick Expansion ammo. It had problems with 220gr. Sig and...
