300 Blackout

300 AAC Blackout

The .300 AAC Blackout (also known as 7.62x35mm) is a rifle cartridge designed for use in the AR-15 platform. It was developed by Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC) as a way to provide a cartridge with greater stopping power than the 5.56 NATO cartridge while still allowing the use of standard AR-15 magazines and lower receivers.

The cartridge is available in supersonic and subsonic loads, with muzzle velocities ranging from 1,900 to 2,400 feet per second. The subsonic loads are particularly popular among shooters using suppressors, as they offer quiet operation and reduced recoil.

The .300 Blackout is an effective cartridge for hunting, self-defense, and tactical applications. It offers greater stopping power than the 5.56 NATO cartridge and is capable of taking down medium-sized game at short to moderate ranges. It is also popular among military and law enforcement agencies as a versatile and effective cartridge.

Overall, the .300 Blackout cartridge offers a compelling combination of power, accuracy, and versatility, making it a popular choice among hunters, tactical shooters, and enthusiasts alike.
