We all love our AR15 platform. The most versatile and reliable ever. And with the new developments in the industry, we are constantly adding new calibers to AR15 platform to accommodate to every need. Still, with so many new cartridges coming down the pipe as the alternative, 300 Blackout remains the one that continues to stand out!

300 Blackout:

Original purpose - target shooting, hunting (hog hunting), home defense

Original design:

- To provide extra oomph to AR platform in terms of power and performance while reducing recoil with 30 rd mags

- Offers wider range of projectile than 5.56
