300 Blackout at Half the Normal Price! – WOLF Ammunition – Shot Show 2020

Everyone has that buddy who has a stockpile of .300 Blackout because it is larger than 5.56 but refuses to shoot it because it is more expensive. Now that WOLF Performance Ammunition has released its new steel-cased .300 AAC blackout, that buddy of yours can rest easy.

You, or your bud, can score .300 Blackout for a mere $0.27 – $0.28 per round, which is about half the price of even the most budget-friendly offerings available today.

Cheaper ammo is usually correlated with lower quality, but WOLF told me at SHOT Show 2020 that these rounds will AT LEAST perform as well as the other budget options on the market.

This new steel-cased .300 Blackout offering is nearly half the price of other cost-effective options on the market today.

The round features a 145-grain FMJ projectile loaded in front of a non-corrosive propellant. In the base, it is Berdan primed, which means coupled with the fact that it is steel cased, you cannot reload these cases.

There are no published numbers on velocities that I am aware of, but I was told at the booth that those who tested the ammo were getting 1500-1600FPS in 10-inch barreled guns and 1850-1900FPS in 16-inch barreled guns.

Wolf expects to see the non-corrosive FMJ ammo on shelves near you as soon as March.

Look for WOLF’s Blackout to hit a store near you around March for around $5.00 for a box of 20.

    EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT 300BLACKOUT AT LOWEST PRICES AND BEING AVAILABLE NOW…BUT IT’S ALL LIES!!!
    FIRST, THE LOWEST PRICE, BECAUSE OF THE HORDING IS AROUND .75-.80/ROUND. SECOND…COUNTLESS SITES(INCLUDING THE JOKE/TARGET AMMUNITION) HAVE BEEN PULLING OUR CHAINS FOR WEEKS. EVERY COMMUNICATION IS SOON, TOMORROW OR MY FAVORITE, MONDAY WELL STOCKED. THEN NOTHING IN STOCK.

    I wonder if they will require a enhanced firing pin to fire efficiently I had change out my firing pin on my 10.5 7.62×39 to shoot them hard primers on Russian steel cased ammo

    I think they went with this weight because it’s just a. 308 bullet, and they already produced 308. This is definitely slower than I expected..

    Interesting that they didnt go with a lighter bullet. If its flatbased like the m67 id love to see how it treats a gelatin block.im betting theyve run alot through some ars to see if problems happen. Kudos to the ivans

    I have been buying reman. 300 BO for .36-.40 per round for about a year now. Less expensive ammo is out there, but you have to search for it. I will pass on steel case.

      Would you please share your goto sources for said 300 BLK ammo?

    • Dave February 18, 2020, 4:29 pm

      Any modern manufactured firearm will shoot steel without an issue.

      Your gun will last a lot longer as a result. Steel cased ammunition wears significantly on the feed ramps and chamber, and is especially hard on the bolt face and extractor. It isn’t a matter of IF your gun will fail, but when.

        That is not true… at all. But please go on to tell us who have been shooting thousands upon thousands of steel case for years about how our guns are broken. I could literally buy 2 more guns just with the money I’ve saved shooting steel case vs the cheapest brass case if I needed to, but my guns are perfectly fine. My feed ramps are slick and clean as ever and my extractors (which literally cost as much as I save by firing a couple boxes of ammo) are still perfectly functional as new. The only guns I won’t shoot steel out of are revolvers or rimfire, and that’s only because they have completely untapered cases.
