I need professional help.....I don't understand the .300 Blackout. I don't see where my Maxi can't do it better. Subsonic? .38+P 158 gr 1000 fps. More meplat than .30 cal. 180 gr SSP 2150 FPS? Am I missing something? Oh, yes, my .32-20s fill in right there in the low end and middle also; sub-sonic up to 100 gr at 2200 fps..
This WAS me till 2011. When I learned RUGER was gonna make American Ranch Rifle in 300.
I walked into my local GS before they actually opened. There was cleaning people there and door was open so I walked in. Was about 9:15. Turns out that they opened at 10 but I couldn’t remember so I went for 09:00.
I walked to the used rack and WOAH WHATS THAT!!! It was a RARR!! This was early October and the price was 389.99. I latched on and didn't put it down.
The guy at the counter misunder stood me and told me that these where not out and had just been offered. I said NO NO. I will BUY THIS ONE! He looked and went in the back.
Came out and said no one is in yet where did ya get this? I told him... Huh he said OK and sold it to me.
Later I bred from my friend that it was a prototype sent
To this shop cause they sell ALLOT of Rugers. The buyer left it on the counter night before and someone put in used rack where I found it. It was not supposed to be sold. 😉.
It’s the most unbelievable shooter!! It’s a honest 1/2 MOA shooter and I LOVE IT!!
It taken near a dozen deer for me. It’s light short very little recoil and excessive accuracy makes it a easy choice for close range deer here. I have used most bullets that are appropriate.
Up till last week it’s top load was 17g 4227 and a 150 Hornady sp.
I say that cause I mounted new bases and rings and a new/ used Redfield Widefield 6x scope. I shot @least 7 different loads Sunday. EVERY SINGLE ONE was under 1” @ 100 yards. A couple where UNDER 1/2”!! 300MP and a 110 Speer in previously fired neck sized cases shot a SINGLE 40 cal hole For five at 100 yards.
20g of 300 MP and a deep seated 2.100 OAL, 135g FTX shot SAME!!! Only a 2.200 seated 135g FTX using same
Charge shot a ragged hole group of just about 1”. It liked looked just like Italy!
I’m a FIRM believer that these Dual Dovetail rings are ALL THERE SHOULD BE!! It the only ones I’ll buy!! Something else I have started is a small dab of blk RTV on bottom Ring. Just a touch or they are **** to remove. Ya just wanna 100% stop any and all possible Movement. I am also able to easily lap rings in this system.
I have done four rifles so far. EACH ONE SHOWED BETTER ACCURACY!!
I also discovered that 15.3g of 3031 and a 165 RD HO I cast shoots into a nickel at 50 with this gun now. A accurate truly accurate cast bullet lod has eluded me until this one. Bad part is these won’t feed. Not a chance in heck. But single loaded they shoot awesomely!
Yes what you have will ultimately the same results. But much like ya didn’t know the 32-20 potential untill I showed ya... This one is a treasure.
My own 82 yr old pop is smitten! I “lost” this rifle to him two years ago! We where in VT hunting and he all of a sudden didn’t like the 8# gun he brought. I offers my 300 telling him of its light weight short bbl and light recoil all with accuracy making this a true “eye ball shooter”. He shot a butter ball 5 pointer that morning behind the camp after the rest of us headed up the mountain. He was within site of the porch!! Bang flop base of the neck with a 110Barnes. I’m glad I only gave him 6 bullets cause I only hot it back last fall cause he was outta bullets!!! I offers to buy him one he said why I got yours! I almost bought a new one for myself but I haven’t seen another rotary mag.
Anyhow. If y get a chance to shoot someone’s give it a go!! If we was closer I’d drop mine off for ya!!
