300 blk upper


70Stingray

Recommended Posts

Several yrs ago I started buying pieces for a 300 blk out pistol. I sorta did it bass ackwards with getting a AAC suppressor, BCI lower and EOtech. Well life got in the way, new small farm and building. I’ve decided to go ahead with a sbr. I’m looking around online and there’s lots of new names. I don’t want to spend a fortune but not really interested in trying to find the cheapest out there. So I’m asking for y’all’s opinion on a upper in a price range from 600-900 give or take a few bucks. I’m also open to something nice if I can justify it in my small head.

Ballistic Advantage would get my vote if I was shopping for a complete upper.

I like those. Did see one in the classified I like. I’m amazed at how many 7.5’s are out there.

BCM is nice. Doesn't look like they come with a charging handle and BCG though. 

 

I’ve always liked Bravo co. Would be nice if it had bcg and charging handle. Did see one on gun broker.

What barrel length are you looking for? I went short (7.5”) because my SF can is pretty long.

While you do get more velocity from longer barrels, most agree 8-9 inches is the sweet spot for 300 BLK barrel length. And given that the overwhelming majority of 300 BLK shooters are shooting under 100 yards subsonic suppressed or want a very short pistol/SBR for home defense or a truck gun I think that’s why you are seeing the shorter barrels. The new Daniel Defense PDW has a 7” barrel.

My recent research has led me to either Ballistic Advantage or BCM as the top names in 300 BLK currently, as previously mentioned.

I was thinking around 9-10.5”. My can is around 7.75. So I might consider shorter if I make it sub use only.

I did find Radian and those look nice. I’ll check out some shorter stuff.

      Posting here only since 300 AAC is primarily a rifle caliber, to get more input.
       
      Thanks!

      Can you use a Red Dot (Sig Romeo 5)   on rifle or do you have to use a riser.

      Finished up my AR10 build tonight. Although I originally wanted a 308, had to settle with a 6.5 Creed chambering. I like how it turned out . Shes a heavy heifer but the 20" pipe should produce a decent accuracy.

      Asking folks with actual NRL22 type experience, what would be your top choices for a base class scope to go on a $500 rifle?  Here are two I have been looking at online are:
      -  Vortex Diamondback 6-24 FFP Mil
      -  Athlon Argos Gen2 BTR 6-24x FFP Mil
      Both msrp around $500, have glass etched reticles, and have appropriate parallax adjustment minimum for 22lr.  Very similar features overall, but im not familiar with either. I am also not sure about the design of the Athlon tube and knobs/erectors area on this model. Reminds me of primary arms.?
      Are there others in this $550 msrp, and under, price range to consider?  Thanks for any input.

      The only Savage I have has already got the Accutrigger but someone might be interested in this replacement.  With over 600 reviews it has 4.97 out of 5 stars and is only $20.
