    • Remington 300BLK cases
  • Barrel: Noveske 16" 1:7 stainless with AAC Cyclone suppressor (note that this load will not cycle the action without a suppressor)

In contrast to the 300BLK Subsonic 20-shot 100-yard Example, which was done with factory ammunition, these handloads exhibit much less variation in muzzle velocity: standard deviation is 16fps compared to 32fps on the factory ammunition. This variance is still significant at this speed and range, however, so the group is still noticeably elongated along the y axis.
