I don't hunt, I don't complete and I basicaly load and shoot for fun. I use open sights without bench rest and don't measure groupings with a ruler.

But........ with that said, I would say I've only shot these two loads at 50 yards so far and with the 180 grain I could almost cover the first 20 shots with a half dollar coin. The 165 grain wasn't quite that, but would guess that the grouping was less than two inches. Someone else with my firearm and my ammo probably could have done much better.

I bet the .300 blackout is more popular there in Texas than it is here in RI.

That's damn good accuracy for off-hand, and is making me very excited. :mrgreen:

Yeah, it's catching on down here for hog hunts at night. Supposedly it sounds like a pellet gun when a suppressor is attached.

Thanks SirSquee,

I do prop my carbine up against a support to steady it and only take one shot every thirty seconds or so with controlled breathing etc. I'm not sure why, but these 180 grain 300 blk loads were more accurate than any 5.56 or .223 that I have shot. Maybe it's the bullet weight and stability/aerodynamics/velocity. Or maybe I just had a good day. None the less, I was pretty happy and excited myself.
