  1. A 300 Blackout with a lead free primer makes so much sense I’m surprised it wasn’t made already. There are plenty of lead free 5.56/.223 options (with lead free primers), so it’s a nice addition. Both are useful for various training areas as well as ranges that have stricter restrictions on lead use (or for shooters who just want lead-free shooting options).

  2. Well ain’t that just dandy. Being behind enemy lines, commie kalifornia. I’m sure these will be very very expensive, if a Legal American Citizen can even find much less get them. Folks this is TYRANNY, and it’s infectious.
