Do any of you hunt with the 300 blackout? What has been the best ammo for deer and hogs? I'm looking for something that has great terminal ballistics and penetration. I would like to use something that makes a large exit hole for easier tracking and better recovery. Any thoughts?
I use Barnes 120 gr VOR-TX out of 16" AR on hogs with good results. It's not the most accurate but it will suffice for most hunting distance and gives good expansion based on wound/exit and good penetration. Every hog I shot with it was killed without taking another step with single shot and bullet always exited. I'm down to last few rounds now and after that I'm going to use 110gr version as 120 gr is hard to find.
Also agree on something loaded with Barnes bullets. I believe I have 110 grain load for my Blackout. I have also taken many deer and hogs with my 6.8 loaded with Barnes TSX and they work very well.
