Re: 78gn LeHigh Close Quarter Bullet

Biggest problem I see is that it requires a 1/10 twist and most blackout barrels are 1/7 or 1/8. The specs say 'minimum' twist rate 1:10. This bullet is designed for the Blackout 1:10 and faster. The Miller formula computes that it is stable out of a 1:7 barrel (Ref; JBM online). They also sell a 7...

Re: 300BLK Expanding Sub Ammo Finally! You can order some!

The new G.I. bullet opens to 900 fps. The Exot opens to 800 fps. blackbullets is not the only game ...

Re: Lapua 200 gr Subsonic Bullets - Comments?

I have tried them on flesh...they sail through and out the other side like a laser beam. Act like monoliths and do not deform. Great for paper, useless on flesh. Shot a 400 lb calf at 30 yds just the other day. Right between the eyes dropped like a rock. Penetrated the skull no problem. :P Excellen...

Re: Will 300Blk cycle with carbine gas and...

... My first Blackout was a 16" CMMG with carbine gas. Standard buffer and spring. It worked fine with supersonics but needed a little tuning for subs. A suppressor helps it to be more forgiving. Above 210gn and your subs will cycle reliably. I settled on 220gn 11.1gn of 2207, 55.5mm OAL. Do you kn...

Re: Loading subsonic question. How slow is too slow.

The sonic boom starts 90fps below the speed of sound and increases until its maximum decibel level 150fps above the sound barrier. You want to be about 100fps below what the sound barrier is in your location. Below that you will not get any quieter and apart from tiny price savings from loading less...

Re: 300BLK Expanding Sub Ammo Finally! You can order some!

I've used 220gn Outlaw State on flesh. None have expanded. All have laser beamed through and out the other side like a monolith. I emailed them with my feedback and did not get a reply.

Don't bother.
