TexasDistortion: I've been looking for a truck gun to use for defense or deer. Looks like I
FrBoris K: Good for you.
bar20arms: @bobsolla I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the 300 blackout.
In the short 2 months of us getting the 300 blackout, we have been very
impressed with the versatility of the caliber. We plan on doing a hog hunt
with the 300 blackout next month. Stay tuned for that hunt. For the time
being check out our other 300 blackout videos, as well as our subscriber
giveaway! Thanks for watching and good luck with your 300 blackout.
Scott L.: Btw, went back and looked at the videos on the MRX - ack! Yes, I've shot
all types in the Barnes line except the MRX. I can certainly see, given the
density of the rear "fill" material and the construction of the MRX how the
weights could be off-not good! I also wasn't thrilled with the original
Barnes-X, but have found the TSX and TTSX lines to be a vast improvement.
Thanks again for the great work and the videos - LOVE the info! As a
cartridge wildcatter, the information is extremely helpful!
Chuck Beams: Love the the 300 blk out... Have the Advanced Armament upper on a Daniel
Defense DDM4... Going to slay some deer this fall... Trying to make a
decision on an optic... Keeping in mind that the Zombies are coming... What
are you running?
bar20arms: @scottl0000 No problem. I ordered them last night. They should be here
early next week. I will do a review on the quality and such out of the box
and work up a load. Next weekend we will do some group tests and ballistic
gel test. I am looking forwarded to testing this bullet even though I still
have my doubts.
Scott L.: If you are going to be performing ballistics gel testing, would most
definitely recommend not overlooking the Barnes TSX FN (Cat.# 30820.) They
are specifically designed for 30-30 velocities (similar to the 125gr.
Sierra Prohunter) and have a large open frontal cavity. Should be
absolutely devastating, and being all-copper, should stay fully intact and
track straight through the terminal material, be it animal or gel.
bar20arms: @scottl0000 Ok Not a problem. We will order a box tomorrow. There were
issues with weight consistency. We did a review on the MRX 165 308. check
that video out. Out of one box none of them weighed exactly the same, and
few were were close. This causes a huge accuracy issue. As far as the gel
portion of the review, they preformed perfectly as advertised. We just
could not get them to group well. For the same price you can get twice the
bullets that weight exactly the same and group amazingly.
bar20arms: LOL you are right they are pretty small around here. Surprisingly our bucks
are much larger than the doe. Next year we will get video of all of our
hunts. Thanks for watching our video and commenting. I hope you enjoy your
300 BLK as much as we have. It is a great caliber.
MrSabotSlug: I've been thinking about getting a 300 blackout upper for deer and hog
hunting. This vid may have just sold me on it.
AlabamaPilgrim333: Awesome. Got an AR, but refuse to shoot a. 223 at a deer. Been
contemplating a 6.8 spc upper receiver... then the blackout comes along.
Looks like it may be a winner.
bar20arms: @Bowfishingdude Thanks for watching our video and commenting. We got our
complete upper from DSA arms. They have great quality uppers at very
JonathanGuenther: why didnt you put the impact shot in the video?
Jake Schimmers: I like the .300 win mag
bar20arms: @scottl0000 OK good and we are glad you have enjoyed our videos. We are
trying to be informative as well as entertaining. I am a little concerned
about this bullet because of the length. The unfortunate thing about the
300 blackout is you have to choose a shorter bullet. The case length really
makes choosing a bullet difficult. We will order them and try to load them,
and if they are too long we will do the review with the 308. That way we
can at least test the bullet.
Scott L.: @bar20arms: Yes, if you could test that bullet specifically, it would
greatly appreciated! Given the large frontal cavity and the velocity
envelope it was designed for, after talking with Ty and some of the techs
at Barnes, I was thinking this might make for an good home defense load. I
was curious, what specifically were you dissatisfied with in the quality
and on which bullet/s specifically? I've had good luck with their TSX and
TTSX bullets, except some 6.5 TTSXs breaking tips occasionally.
bar20arms: Yes you have! Excellent caliber for either use. Check out our other hunting
video. We used it for a fox hunt. I cant post a link here but you can click
our name to check out our channel
bar20arms: Nope not visible at all. It is a fraction above the blade. Pretty cool.
bar20arms: Great!. I am using a 4X12-40 Leupold. I am going to put a 3X9-40 on it
though I just need to switch it out. The 4X12-40 is way to much scope for
AlabamaPilgrim333: What I needed to hear. Thanks. Keep 'em coming.
bar20arms: @tfusel thanks for watching and for commenting. Well our season is over so
we will not be able to this season. We chose the 165 because of the energy
advantage at closer range. I do not doubt for a minute that a lighter
bullet would be as lethal at longer ranges. If you would like let us know
what grain of bullet you were thinking and we will do some ballistic gel
testing to get a good idea. Then maybe next year we can use it to take a
bar20arms: @scottl0000 Thank you for the advise. Unless you are asking use to test
this bullet I don't think it will be on the list. We were very dissatisfied
with the quality of the barnes bullets.If you would like to see it test we
would be more than happy to do it. Thanks for watching and commenting
Ieatveggies: @bar20arms Sounds great. Thanks for the interest!
bar20arms: Yes. We eat all the deer we shoot. We survive all year on wild game meat.
Thanks for watching and commenting
goofy775: to track animals like that one must own at a minimum 100 acres of land give
or take... unless you're in a state that has tons of public hunting land
you're crap out of luck if you're a hunter without a few hundred grand
Ieatveggies: @bar20arms I was thinking a 125gr Sierra Pro Hunter. I just bought 200 of
these and they have an OAL of 2.000". They are straight and need to be
crimped with a factory crimp die from Lee to avoid a setback. Really, I am
interested in any round below 130 grains.
bar20arms: I used a MIL spec magazine capacity of 30rds. The legal limit is 5rds.
Because we were hunting on our private property and only had five rounds
total I used that magazine. There are several manufactures that produce 5
round magazines. midwayusa com has several. If I were you and you were
concerned about the legalities of ammo. Hunt with no mag and one in the
chamber, and a couple in you pocket. But you can purchase 5 round mags for
less than 20 dollars. Thanks for watching and commenting
Bob Solla: great video!i just got into the ar platform and have never hunted before.i
have many friends that do hunt and i`am interested in hog and deer
hunting.i live in Florida and have a friend with a hunt camp near
Columbia,s.c.;so i `am in the process of building a 300 blackout with a 16'
noveske stainless barrel and noveske n4 upper with failsafe bolt carrier
group and maybe troy trx handrails.i`am glad to see this round easily take
a good size deer!i was thinking about a leopould scope.
bar20arms: @AlabamaPilgrim333 Thanks so much for watching our video and for
commenting. Do not underestimate the .223 for deer hunting. In the right
combination in load and shot placement it is a very lethal round for White
Tail Deer Hunting. The 300 Blackout is an incredible AR platform, quite
possibly going to take first place in our favorite caliber list. If I were
you, I would ditch the 6.8 SPC and jump straight to the 300 Blackout. Just
Our Humble Opinion. Stay Tuned for more 300 Blackout Videos.
bar20arms: Yep your right. We are simply harvesting our meat for the year. We found it
very difficult to video are actual hunts so instead of ruining a great hunt
on camera we decided to hunt off camera and harvest on camera. Thanks for
the comment though we got a kick out of the "edible target" LOL thanks.
JonathanGuenther: ok, ill be looking forward to seeing them
MrMatt5252: Can you see the front sight in your scope being mounted that low. Its
something Ive alway wondered with guns that have the a2 front post
ShooterMattReloaded: Thats a doe? We have fawns bigger than that in ontario
bar20arms: @tfusel We would be more than happy to test the 125 Sierra Pro hunter. We
will get a box on order, and cook up some ballistic gel. Stay tuned for
some ballistic gel testing in the near future. Oh and also We are glad you
mentioned the factory crimp die. We are using Lee dies with the factory
crimp die. This very important when using semi automatic firearms. If you
don't you take a chance of you OAL changing within the mag because of the
concussion. If you are single firing, disregard.
Ieatveggies: Do you think you will load any lighter grain rounds before the season ends?
Scott L.: Danger autocomplet... "touch" below should be "...that you..."
FrBoris K: I hope you gonna eat bambi! If you are salute!
bar20arms: It was too far to the right of the window. My partner couldnt get it into
frame. We will film all of our hunts this year. We will make sure that we
get good footage.
okieltr450: What brand and capacity of magazine were you using? And whats the legal
limit where your at? I live in ok and we are limited to 7 rounds in the
mag. I've been contemplating a 300blk for deer but have no way to legally
fit it into my ar while hunting. Thanks for the video and help
Gern Blanston: oooh hell yeah!!
Scott L.: @bars20arms: I understand what you mean, had similar concerns originally.
but what I think touch will find is that you can seat it pretty far out due
to both the short tip (extreme HP) and an give that's *very* similar to
thwarting Sierra 125 P.H. You will like need to with power to a more high
energy, condensed powder. Lemme know.if you need some rec and I'll run some
software simulations to find a likely candidate :-) Thanks again!
MeetTheMattsons: I hunt by hiking miles into the mountains and packing the deer or elk out
on my back. Shooting out a window at deer at a feeder isn't hunting, it's
just target practice with an edible target.
