So after being out in the field and TDY for the last few months I finally received all my parts and had time to assemble my first AR project last night. Its a 300BLK built on a PSA Lower. What do you guys think?

Already got half my parts in for my next build. Gonna be a 5.56 bull barrel in Burnt Bronze built on a RRA Lower and TNW billet upper.

Why did you choose a 300 Blackout? From what I read (I have not read a lot about this), the ballistics don't seem to be all that great. Could you enlighten me as to why you chose this platform? Any particular reason that you chose this route?

A 7.62 projectile on a modified 5.56 cartridge. Seems to me that I might be better suited for close range maybe under 200 yards. Is this correct? Litttle powder with a heavy projectile.....

That's my understanding as well. I'm just getting into 300 Black, so I'm no expert, but my understanding is that it was conceived as a shorter range cartridge that lends itself well to SBRs and subsonic suppressed configurations.

^ Yup thats pretty much 300BLK in a nutshell. Getting a suppressor soon so that influenced the choice. Another big reason for me was that I already had thousands of 5.56 brass and thousands of 7.62 projectiles from 110gr-180gr for me to reload into 300BLK ammo. Also got a 8lb jug of Hogden lil gun for free, so I'm set up with more 300BLK ammo than I'll probably have free time to load up at the bench.
