Posted on 02/26/2013 11:00:23 AM PST by marktwain
The .300 AAC Blackout has taken the industry by storm and is considered one of the hottest new cartridges for hunting feral hogs with AR/MSR platform rifles. This versatile cartridge provides the ability to shoot subsonic ammunition for low-noise applications and supersonic ammunition for longer-range shots. Nikon has developed the all-new P-300 BLK riflescope to embrace both applications and to harness the effectiveness of this exciting new caliber.
When you look at what the .300 Blackout cartridge can do in terms of effectiveness, it really is an amazing caliber. Nikon is excited to jump into the mix and give shooters a riflescope that was designed from the ground up to match the ballistic profiles of .300 AAC Blackout, said Jon LaCorte, senior product marketing manager of Nikon Sport Optics.
The P-300 BLK comes in 2-7×32 magnification with an all-new BDC SuperSub reticle that is calibrated for use with both supersonic and subsonic ammunition and is fully compatible with Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. The BDC SuperSub reticle offers shooters unique, open circle aiming points out to 600 yards, in 100-yard increments, with additional hash-marks at 50-yard distances. It is built with Nikons Fully Multicoated optical system with up to 98% light transmission, which offers bright, high-resolution viewing, even in low light situations.
Making adjustments in the field is now incredibly easy with Nikons spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets. Just sight in at 100 yards, then lift the adjustment knob, rotate to your zero, and re-engage. Hand-turn reticle adjustments are made in ¼-inch click-stop moves that can be felt and heard. The P-300 BLK is waterproof, fogproof and backed by Nikons full lifetime warranty. MSRP for the P-300 BLK is $199.95.
I predict 200+ replies on this thread. Further, it will go off topic in less than.....mmmmm...75.
I seriously doubt I’m giving anything away by keeping my little AK caliber Saiga rifle and keeping the 5G for the exotic new rifle in my own bank account....
How about them Mosin Nagants? ;)
... ... but I like it !!!!
Haha! One down, one to go.
193 to go
Anyone have a good cinnamon toast recipe?
300 AAC? Okay, do you have the ballistics for this? I ask solely from curiosity. How does it stack up against all of the other .30 caliber range rounds? While those are effective rounds, and plenty of hunters have had great sucess with them, I prefer a 12ga, with either a slug, three ball shot, or 00buck for feral pigs and boars. I guess it depends on geography and personal likes. In the end, it’s all good if you bring home dinner.
How effective is that subsonic round against blue helmets?
Purty danged so I’d reckon. Wikipedia has some good details on the round’s performance.
1) Piece, bread; 2) toast; 3) butter, 4) sprinkle fine ground cinamon, 4) wrap with partially cooked bacon strips, 5) coat with batter, 6) deep fry.
Maximum effective range =
460 metres (503 yd) 125 grain supersonic
200 metres (219 yd) 220 grain subsonic

You had me at bacon
Side point, for those of us who can't afford an AR or the functional equivalent for every caliber we shoot, (or wish to shoot), NEF makes their neat little single-shot in this caliber.
If someone knows of a good bolt gun at an entry level price point I wouldn't mind knowing about that, either.
Edit: “...a good bolt gun with a threaded muzzle...”
.300BLK forum is at http://300blktalk.com/ run by the guy who designed it.
4 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon on heavily buttered toast.
This is good for both the two legged and four legged varieties? Or should I just stick with my 7.62x39?
