    With its popularity, I don't see how this hasn't been covered.

    My understanding is it is optimal suppressed and short.

    Covered in what way? We have done a fair amount of testing.

    Its optimal use & range - used against living things. Which ammunition works better.

    Barnes VOR-TX 110gr TAC-TX will be the ticket against living things and home defense. Cruise over to 300blktalk.com for more information than you can imagine.

    It is my favorite caliber for the AR platform.

    No need to go anywhere else when we have the members we have.

  6. I'd like to resurrect this thread and get some input from the pros.

    I'm planning to purchase a new short barreled AR. Primary role will be home defense.
    Debating between BCM 9" 300 BLk and a BCM 11.5" or 12.5" in 5.56.

    300BLK is currently more attractive to me because I would like the option to do some occasional hog/deer hunting with it.
    I plan to always run supersonic ammo but plan to add a suppressor for home use and occasional hunting/plinking use.

    I think we'd be splitting hairs at this point (given my stated intended use/size parameters), but are there other advantages/disadvantages to consider that haven't been covered in this forum or in Modcasts?

    P.S. Do you guys think 300BLK is here to stay?
