WTK - Experience with Sig Sauer ELITE 300BLK HT ammo

Post by lightscout » Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:45 am

In preparation for the upcoming whitetail season, I've been searching for some 300BLK hunting ammo. Was pretty much set on the Barnes VOR-TX offering but they aren't cheap and I haven't found a ton of them locally. Just recently, I found some of this stuff in stock at a few local stores. 120gr all-copper bullets that are a good bit less $$$ than the Barnes. Anyone have any experience with them? My intent is to use them in a 9" SBR on whitetail deer at ranges less than 100yds.

In my Ruger 10.5" they feed/eject perfectly and shoot consistent groups. Unfortunately the groups are 4 to 5"@ 50 yards, so they're off my list for hunting deer & pigs.

I’ve shot some in a 16” carbine with a suppressor. Best I can recall, without my data notes, the velocity was zippy and accuracy was fair. I recall some odd point of impact variations, but I can’t rule out other (shooter) related factors causing the shifts. One thing for sure, in my carbine, the fired cases exhibited some pressure signs (serious ejector marks). That combined with the higher than anticipated velocity and mediocre accuracy led me to rule it out in favor of my reloads for deer season.

It's been awhile since I've shot mine.
But I don't recall getting 5" groups at 50 yards.

I'm shooting 8.5" pistol configuration with 2-7x Nikon
I think I was under 3" but can't recall for sure.

I'll be back to the range here in the next week or so and let ya know how it went

Anyone actually kill anything with them? Just due to time constraints I'm going to give them a go this year. Fingers crossed...
