The True Pea Shooter! 300blk Round Ball Loads Suppressed! (Pew Pew Loads!)

Full.Lead.Taco | April 16th, 2018

A while back I wanted to see what the lightest bullet I could load in my 300 blk would be. I worked my way all the way down to a round ball load. Someone asked me if I was worried about a baffle strike with the round ball–I asked them, ” what do you think is going to happen, the bullet starts to tumble? Ha ha ha ha.” Anyways, after trying a couple of them, I found that they are hilariously quiet to shoot and everyone gets a kick out of hearing them whiz through the air. Soooooo, I made a bunch more and made a video about making them. They drop fast but seem to fly pretty straight. We were messing around and shooting them on steel at to 100 yards with about a foot and a half of drop. Just something different to enjoy. Oh, and I would love to test them on small critters like a squirrel or something. I bet they would work just fine. Any questions, feel free to post a comment.

Very Cool. I had a 300BO AR Pistol that I traded last year. I need to put together a rifle upper.

You guys are a seriously bad influence on me. Not like I need any help making poor decisions, I think my old Daisy spring powered BB gun made more noise than that! Thanks for the share, Sir Taco!

I would love to have a suppressor but since I have no practical need for one, I can’t bring myself to cut the ATF a $200 check….guess I’m cheap!
These look like fun!
