    Hi everyone. First post. Didn't see an introduction section, so I'll just show off my .300Blackout SBR and introduce myself at the same time. This is how I found THR, I was searching for .300 info because this is my first foray into the Blackout world.

    I'm married 20+ years. The wife and I have one of each, the oldest in college. (youngest goes next year) I'm U.S. Army retired/disabled. I did 28 years from 1981 to 2009. Three combat tours, got hurt in '05 and they finally put me out in '09. I like all the normal guy stuff, cars, guns, my dog, oldies from the 70s...

    I had a 5.56 SBR that I just got switched over to .300 Blackout. (had to keep my old barrel, stupid NFA rules) It's pretty much the old gun with a new 11.3" stainless Wilson Combat barrel and Surefire flash suppressor. Just got my first shipment of .300 ammo today from the UPS guy so I'm looking forward to getting it dialed in and zeroed soon.

    I know, I know, I could have got the 10" rail to stay in style, but I'm old and like the look of having the barrel stick out a bit.

    Now you just need a few thousand shells, some reloading gear and a few silencers and you can be a slave to your rifles like the rests of us.

    FYI you dont have to keep the old barrel. Common misconception.

    Welcome! Nice rifle!

    Keep the old 5.56 barrel if you want, but the NFA rules don't require it.

    What the ATF wants (but the law doesn't require) is that if you change calibers, you either keep the parts for the original configuration or you notify them of the new "permanent" configuration by sending a letter. (This allows them to keep the NFA registry up to date.)

    Bear in mind, though, that there's no part of the National Firearms Act that requires any of that. Once your lower is registered, it's registered. It can have any length barrel or caliber.

    Welcome to the high road! Once upon a time I found myself in Indiana... managed to convince the folks up at Purdue to give me a BS in Mech. E.

    That being said, nice little rifle. Now you need a can to put on the end of it. .300 blk really shines suppressed.

    A suppressor is planned, just waiting on funding. I'm probably looking at late fall or winter at least. We live on my VA disability. My wife's a teacher's aid, and with 2 days of school left, is fixing to be without a paycheck for the summer.

    Nice rifle. Simple and to the point.

    And welcome to The High Road. It's a good forum with a lot of knowledge.

    Then you definitely need to get to reloading if you want to shoot .300 blk. I cringe when I look at commercial prices for sub-sonics.
