Re: 223 Sabot in 300BLK Anyone tried it?

The 110g Barnes black tips(designed for the 300 blackout) will expand down to around 1800fps according to Barnes. I dont have a ballistics calculator to see what they would be doing out at say 200-300 yards to see if they would still reliably expand. http://militarytimes.com/blogs/gearscout/files/2...

Re: 223 Sabot in 300BLK Anyone tried it?

Light bullets in sabots don't make enough gas pressure for an AR. You could probably do ok with 90 grain Sierra 223 bullets though. Yes it does. See earlier post this thread...13grains AP100 with a 55gn VMax cycles fine. No pressure signs and plenty more space in the case for work-up. Anyone else h...

Re: 223 Sabot in 300BLK Anyone tried it?

I agree, muzzle energy is a clumsy indicator of a firearms ability to kill. Let's face it, most of us here have shelled out for a 300BLK. I'm the same as everyone else and went 'Wow!' when I heard the hype about, '25% more than a 223,' and '5% more than an AK47', 'Plus, you get a subsonic capability...

Re: 223 Sabot in 300BLK Anyone tried it?

OK interesting, thanks for that. We went out to the range yesterday and tried a couple, but the weather and time was against us. Used Quickload to figure out a powder that would likely cycle with a '61grain' (55gn VMax, plus 6gn for the sabot). Used 13grains of AP100 for three rounds and it cycled t...

Re: cycle problems

What did they say was wrong with it? Do you know what they did to fix it?

Re: New Ruger 10/22 Take Down

What is the minimum barrel length needed to stabilize and burn all the powder in a typical .22LR subsonic?

Re: 6.5 Grendel or 308?

I'm going out on a limb here to say 260Rem, 6.5Creedmore, 6.5*47Lapua and 6.5*284 are the medium range calibers of the future. I competed in a Sporting Rifle match (200-900yards, mostly tactical type bolt-actions) at Raton recently. They had a special box to tick on the scorecard if you were shootin...

223 Sabot in 300BLK Anyone tried it?

Guys, I see on 3 previous threads general discussion about sabots being used in a 300 but has anyone actually tried them? Before we get off topic by opinions on why you would want to here's my rationale. I've used the supersonic Blackout on 5 roo's(kangaroos) now. 2 with Hornady 110 VMax and 3 with ...
