Recoil - - Blackout Buyer’s Guide -

An­nounced in De­cem­ber 2017 and re­leased for sale three months later, Hor­nady added an ex­pand­ing subsonic bul­let to its ex­ist­ing five Black­out of­fer­ings.

Built to their usual stan­dards, the bul­let fea­tures a red poly­mer tip to ini­ti­ate ex­pan­sion, a de­tail no doubt fa­mil­iar to users of their Crit­i­cal Duty line of pis­tol ammo. In our test ri­fle, it proved to be an ac­cu­rate and con­sis­tent per­former, and if a lone flyer were dis­counted, would’ve turned in a 0.36-inch group. Of the con­ven­tional jacket-and-core pro­jec­tiles in this test, it was the only one not to sep­a­rate. Note, how­ever, that some poly­mer mags may have prob­lems in pre­sent­ing the blunt tip high enough to make it up the feed ramp in your fa­vorite semi auto. Ei­ther use reg­u­lar old GI ver­sions or Mag­pul’s 300 BLKspe­cific of­fer­ing.
