.300 Blackout vs 7.62x39mm?


#1

How do these two rounds compare? If the x39 is superior why did they make the .300 blackout when theres plenty of x39 uppers available for the AR already?


#2

the 300 was designed to be used Suppressed in a short barrel, a compact CQB weapon, with heavy 200-220 grain bullets it cycles the AR action at sub-sonic velocities…very quiet and efficient in a 8-10 inch barrel…was never meant to compete against the AK round…even though in super sonic loads it is very similar…


#4

As mentioned, the 300 is a different type of round. It feeds in a standard AR mag, unlike the x39. Using the sub sonic rounds on a 8-10" barrel with a suppressor(welded) makes for a great defensive and or quite weapon that only needs one stamp.

Depends how much $$$you want to spend on ammo too! I bought ruger ranch rifle in 7.62×39 & I love it! $ 189 per 1000rounds of hollow point. I can shoot all damn day for pennies!:smiley:with the shit wolf ammo 1-1/2" groups at 200yds! Good cheap round for hogs, deer & coyote. You can reload the 300 affordable, just cut down some 223 brass.
