Seems like I’m not the only one thoroughly enjoying the .300 BLK cartridge.

    Will the .300 AAC succeed where so many have failed? Several intermediate-caliber cartridges based on the 5.56 have found only niche markets, despite excellent ballistics. The main reason? You can’t go too crazy when your rounds cost $1 a shot.

    Hopefully the manufacturing power of The Borg Collective, er, The Freedom Group, they’ll be able to keep the ammunition price down. It will never really catch fire until it drops to the price of bulk .308: less than $.50 per round.

      I’m really hoping it will catch on.

    If it gets adopted as 300 NATO, or some other metric measurement since 7.62mm as already been taken, then I would consider it. I won’t buy an AR with it until that time.

      Imagine if NATO did adopt it, then the U.S. military’s current stock of 5.56 flooded the civilian market and drove the price down to pre-O levels. I’d be in heaven.

      It looks like Santa’s elves work for Surefire this year.
