300 blackout in a .223, opps


#1

From what I understand, this is the result of putting a 300 blackout in to a .223. On our Twitter page, there has been a lot of talk about how it’s not possible. Tomorrow I will be running a test and recording it. I will take an empty brass from a 300 blackout, put a bullet in it and try to chamber it in a .223. I predict it will close, but not easy. I believe the bullet will be pushed in to the case allowing the bolt to lock.

Ouch… Talk about having a bad day.

I think the worst part is, that’s right in your face. I picked up these magBands from https://magbands.net/ a while back. I have way too many calibers that fit the same mags and look to close to each other.

Indeed. Even if you were uninjured you’d learn that lesson real quick!


#5

How hard would it to be getting past the flinch.


#6

I couldn’t imagine. Would it be unreasonable to assume your instincts would be to throw it immediately afterward? Nah, probably not unreasonable.

If that ever happened to me, I would need to purchase new underwear, and perhaps new pants. :thinking:

Holy crap! Where did you get that sample? Hope whoever this happened to is ok. That’s the kind of mistake you only make once.
