They call it coyote, because calling it USMC brown would cause issues. I've got many items in coyote.
In laymen terms, think of the 5.56 as .40 cal (full charge) and the .300 BLK as a .45ACP full charge. Bigger, slower, and barely noticeable in power. The .77gr 5.56 completely destroys the .300BLK in every aspect, except sub-sonic suppressed. That is where .300BLK shines.on an unrelated to color post,……
I’m seriously considering getting a .300 BO upper to swap onto one of my ARs just for a change.
So I'm definitely interested in a range report from the OP on his new rifle.
Ahh,That may very well be,
but I have been unable to get a 70gr bullet to fly straight out of either my 20" 1/7 or 16" 1/7 AR,
I am reluctant to even try a 77gr bullet.
Agreed, but that's a .22 out hammering a .308...In which the .308 was specially designed to out hammer the .22. Think that over for a moment. The .300BLK was supposed to "destroy" the 5.56 to 300m, yet the 77gr .22 is not accepting that outcome.Based on the information on that chart I wouldn't say it blows it out of the water in ever aspect. I would say certain loadings of 77 grain 5.56 out of a particular barrel length can produce a marginal edge in energy foot pounds beyond 200 yards compared to certain loads of 300 BO. And even then the difference is only roughly 100 foot pounds.
