Bulk .300 AAC Blackout Ammo, also known as .300 AAC or .300 Blackout, has taken the shooting world by storm in the last few years. The 5.56x45mm NATO is a fine caliber for a surprising number of applications. As a shooting community, we never envisioned many of those uses decades ago when the cartridge was born. Lucky for us, today they’ve come to fruition with advances in modern ammunition technology.
The gaps which the Blackout fills, though, are numerous because it is a regular Jekyll and Hyde; it is actually optimally used from a short barrel which is why it has been embraced as a nearly-ideal Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) cartridge, yet it performs quite well from the standard 16” barrel from an AR-15. It can fire a sub-sonic 220gr bullet which hits like a +P .45 ACP and then transitions immediately to high-power, super-sonic 110gr-150gr loads
What are the best uses for 300 AAC Blackout? From hog hunting to home defense, the 300 Blackout works well in a variety of applications. Bulk .300 AAC Blackout Ammo is commonly used for hunting, home defense, military purposes, and plinking at the gun range. It also works well with applications involving the use of suppressors with subsonic ammo.
• What’s the difference between 300 Blackout and 223 Rem? The 7.62x35mm 300 AAC bullet is larger in size than 223 Remington.

The 223 Rem has a higher average velocity (55gr at 3,180 FPS) than the heavier 300 Blackout (125gr at 2,215 FPS) from a standard 16″ barrel.
• Will 300 Blackout kill a deer? Yes, at distances of 100 yards or closer, the 300 AAC Blackout cartridge will kill a deer. The best 300 Blackout ammo options for deer hunting have a bullet weight between 125-135 grains and a bullet type of SST, OTM, or Poly-tip.
