Very cool.

Here's hoping for some obscure calibers too, like 358 winchester.

Sorry to derail for a moment, but what is the attraction to the 300 Blackout?  Just seems like an underpowered 7.62x39. I've seen a Blackout upper put on a real colt M16 lower (all legal, class III dealer). That made one of the strangest full auto sounds I've ever heard. Kind of like an AK with auto sped up 50% lol
The 10mm Auto, created by Zeus, replaced Thor's hammer, perfected by Jeff Cooper, and endorsed by Larry Vickers AND the Nuge! It exudes awesome! :D

I still liked the group buy I got into with Starline where a bunch of us went in on a drum of nickel plated 100 mm cases (8000 minimum).

I wouldn't mind doing that again, with either the brass or nickel plated.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. With all my guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

I might be interested if it was brass, not nickel.

300 blackout just works better in the AR platform,with about the same performance. I really like it.

This.  And to elaborate.

The 300 Blackout feeds better and is an easier "swap" for an existing AR owner.

The 300 Blackout will handle bullet weights all the way up to 230 grain, where the 7.62X39 maxes out at about 150 grains.

The .308 caliber bullets available have better BC's than the .310 bullets used in the 7.62X39.  By 250 yards any energy advantage is negated and beyond that the 300 blackout delivers more energy on target.

Correspondingly, external ballistics are very similar.  The Blackout is only down .3" at 100 yards and .5" at 200 yards from the "faster" 7.62X39.  Again, better BC plays a huge role in this.

Paper, game and predators are unlikely to laugh off a solid hit from a 300 blackout at close range because it was going 100-200 feet slower.

The Blackout was designed from day one to be used in suppressed SBR's. And it performs in that role in ways the 7.62X39 can't.

About the only downside to the 300 blackout is the lack of uber cheap surplus ammo.  Some shooter find this to be a legitimate deal breaker.  If you goal is a cheap to feed plinker, and you don't reload, or don't like reloading lots of ammo, the 7.62X39 is a great round. 

If, on the other hand, you do reload, and you want to explore rounds that have lots of versatility, the Blackout is the way to go.

Yep, everything he said. I love mine. I've nearly lost count of All the animals I've killed with it.

Just to add into 300 BLK love.... The group I hunt with in TX has 3, 300 BLK.  One with a 16" BBL and 2 AR pistols with 10.3" barrels.  2 hogs have been taken with a 125gr SST reload and 8 with the Hornady 135gr FTX factory load.  None lost either.  No long range shots though.   :D ;D

This year the main plan was to pop a hog with the G20... but I missed.  Still got one with the 300 BLK.
