Any thoughts on a Remington 7400 in .243?

It's a good thing your chosen profession can support expensive tastes :)
Oh I have no intentions of buying one…..at least not anytime soon. :cool:

I just think of all the novel "5.56 / .308 alternative" calibers out there (not that .300 AAC is novel any more), this one is the most interesting.

I should have qualified my statement by adding “for my purposes”.

I’ve been wanting to take my patrol rifle down to a 10.5” barrel.. 300blk smokes 5.56 in every way, but absolutely blows it out of the water out of an SBR..

Plus, as mentioned above, subsonic 300blk out of a suppressed rifle is sooooooo much fun to shoot.

I have a spare .223 bolt action sitting around that I'm going to change to a suppressed .300 some day.
And that, to me, is the genius of 300blk, beyond ballistics, of course..

Any 5.56/223 rifle can be converted to 300blk by just changing the barrel..

Sorry, one more post.. The one thing to remember is that the ballistics only shine with supersonic rounds.. subsonic 300blk is almost the same ballistics as a 9mm out of a pistol..

I found a really pretty Mossberg 464 in blue/stainless steel, 30-30, evaluating that vs a Marlin 336

Break out the tools (and the wallet) its time to build again. 300blk pistol build is in the works.

I dont know that you could have picked a worse time.
Meh, I'm in no rush to complete it. I already have a AR... I've had these 80's laying around forever and I finally got around to milling them.

Edit: also by some stroke of luck the upper receiver I want is still in stock... ammo on the other hand...
