300 blackout ammo
300-blackout-ammo offers a wider range of projectile choices, thanks to the . 30 caliber bore, burns its full potential in a 9-inch barrel, and is a much better choice for hunting. It also has the ability to cycle both super and subsonic ammunition without modification. The . Using M4 military standards, the max effective range of 300 AAC Blackout from a 16 inch barrel is 460 meters. From a 9 inch barrel (2050 fps): – 100 inches drop at 410 meters – 41 inches drift at 470 meters – 291 ft-lbs of energy at 625 meters, so 440 meter max effective range for a 9 inch. The bullet drops about 4 inches at 100 yards, 2.5 feet at 200 yards, 8 feet at 300 yards, 18 feet at 400 yards, and 30 feet at 500 yards. This issue isn’t unique to 300 Blackout bullets, though.
been hunting hogs for 40-something years and have killed them with just about every caliber for hog hunting and every weapon except a spear. I have pursued them from the oak savannah of central California to the mesquite-choked brush of south Texas, shooting more hogs than I can remember. Some dropped to long shots across big canyons while others were killed up close and personal at halitosis range.
You can’t hunt hogs that long without developing some opinions about ammunition choices, and mine are pretty straightforward. I come down solidly on the side of bullets that hit with authority, penetrate deeply, and expand well. I’ve seen enough “dead” hogs suddenly recover from a seemingly fatal hit–even from rounds as powerful as the .30/06 Springfield–so you won’t find any .223 Rem. or similar cartridges on this list, nor will you find slow, suppressed loads like the .300 Blackout. Lots of hogs have been killed with such cartridges, but range is limited with the subsonic rounds, and performance can be marginal on big hogs with lighter bullets for anything other than head or spine shots. Bear in mind that there’s a difference between hunting hogs for the freezer and trying to eradicate as many as possible because they’re ravaging a landscape. My choices reflect the best calibers for hog hunting that address the needs of the average hunter.
