.300 Blackout.

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.


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".
