Thanks Taco. One of the videos I’ve been putting material together for is about this topic.

Here’s roughly what the post and video will say when I get it together– I think there are a few practices which can all but eliminate the risks.

I forgot #7. If you cast your 300 BO in glaring colors like kawasaki green, it is eye catching. I take a lot of new people shooting, and they pretty much always ask whether I painted my bullets and if that means they are special. The new answer is “yes, bright green means it is safe to shoot in this gun, but not that one over there. That’s why they have different cases. See how this one is little and copper colored? It goes in the boring gun. The cool bullets go in this one.”

Thanks FLT for putting this out. I have both calibers and do two things to assist in keeping this from happening…. First, I use a different brand of magazine for each caliber. PMags for my .223 and Lancer mags for 300BLK. The Lancer mags are better for 300 anyway because of the issue of heavy bullet rounds not feeding properly in the older Gen 1 and early Gen 2 PMags. Secondly, I use these caliber bands to also help keep the mags separate…. http://www.300blktalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=87555. You still have to be really careful not to mix calibers when loading the mags but… Read more »
