This is coolbert:
From that previous blog entry:
"Available too in the original 7.92 X 33 Kurz round and ALSO a variety of other calibers"
Other calibers to include the .300 BLK. Speaking of the StG 44.
That .300 BLK I WAS TOTALLY UNFAMILIAR WITH!
Here with everything you wanted to know about the .300 BLK BUT never knew to even ask:
".300 AAC Blackout . . . short name 300 BLK, also known as 7.62×35mm is a
rifle cartridge developed in the United States . . . for use in the M4 carbine. Its purpose is to achieve
ballistics similar to the 7.62×39mm Soviet cartridge in an AR-15
platform while using standard AR-15 magazines at their normal capacity."
"the nature of the missions encountered by some special operations groups often demand a round that not only provides better performance than that available in the high-energy standard velocity rounds, but one that can offer subsonic performance"
The project's goals were:
* "Create a reliable compact .30-cal solution for AR platform"
* "Use existing inventory magazines while retaining their full capacity"
* "Create the optimal platform for sound and flash suppressed fire"
* "Create compatible supersonic ammo that matches 7.62×39mm ballistics"
* "Provide the ability to penetrate barriers with high-mass projectiles"
* "Provide all capabilities in a shorter, lightweight, durable, and low recoiling package"
Low recoil, low muzzle flash, low report and sub-sonic ballistics BUT ALL THE WHILE RETAINING A KNOCK-DOWN AND STAY-DOWN CAPABILITY!
Ideal for special operations troops and their missions and NOT NEEDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW RIFLE!1
What more could you want?
P.S.: .300 Blackout available in both sub-sonic and super-sonic round. The former for noise suppression and the latter for "knock-down", "stay-down action".
