    I savaged a 6' python with my .300 BO running subs suppressed. While the quietness was nice, the super's ballistics would have been nice.The python moving fast through tall grass = $20 of ammo.

    So is anyone using a .300 bo as a nightstand gun? I was thinking with supersonics and a suppressor it would be a good choice for that role but I've only seen one other person mention it.

    Gabe, I know you run a shotgun for home defense and Greg has recommended the same to me in the past I'd just prefer a single projectile with the kids. Longest shot is > 16 paces inside home.

    Pythons, bear, panther, pig, and the occasional turkey is pretty much all there is in the Everglades. Oh, and a bazillion gators.

    I'm using a 10.5 inch .300 with an Inforce light and loaded with Barnes 110 grain TAC-TX. Ive done well with it in a few local matches also,the difference in muzzle blast verses a .556 in the same length is obvious.

    The 8.5 .300 is my duty rifle , Ive written about it before, noting that in retrospect I would have made it as a pistol vice an SBR. I also noted that the TAC-13 has become the "upfront" weapon lately due to the nature of the tasks recently. However, when a rifle is needed, thats the one I grab

    Flip up irons, good reddot, inforce light mounted 12 oclock, angled foregrip, and GMT300 suppressor

    Greg, you could probably savage a company with an old gym sock. But yeah, "Buyer's remorse" was too strong a term relating to my 5.56 pistol.. LOL

    I didn't intend to infer that the 5.56 pistol isn't a tremendous tool. But for my rural civilian needs, it doesn't bring as much to the table as the 300 BLK pistol does so adding it to my tool set didn't add much, if anything, for those AR pistol jobs.

    That said, adding a 5.56 pistol to my tool set did make my 5.56 carbines look a lot less essential (again, in my situation). I think the 5.56 AR pistol does a lot of the jobs an AR carbine does (at least the ones I'm remotely likely to need) and does them with a lighter, handier platform. The Stakeout and PointMan had the same effect on my full-size shotguns and the SI RMR Glock PDW pretty much ruined me for other PCCs/SMGs (though I still think the CZ EVO is cool). Small is good.

    My point to the OP and others considering an AR pistol is; if you don't have one and aren't married to the 5.56 cartridge for some reason, the 300 blackout has some significant advantages in a pistol platform. Among those are better functionality in shorter barrels, larger, heavier projectiles, less muzzie blast and better suppression. Also, if you are invested in 5.56 as a caliber, you'd be well served by adding a 5.56 pistol...but more as an improvement on your 5.56 carbine roles than as an improvement on your 300 BLk pistol.

    Doc, good post. This is essentially articulating the identifying of Role and Envelope in your decision making process and is exactly how we are attempting to teach people to think that some seem unable to grasp.

    Thatís a really interesting preference. Trying to follow why. Bears are more impressed with 300blk so get the preference for the woods. In urban, I still like the quite and the barrel length of 300blk over 556. I keep a Sig Rattler in the car for a rifle caliber small backpack gun.

    Glad you posted about the difference in accuracy at 300+ My BCM 300blk does not group as well at distance and my 556 uppers do.
