My 300BLK DeerSlayer

Here is my 300blk all done up in a 2 tone FDE ready for deer hunting. I used a DPMS lower and slickside upper, JP captured spring buffer with low mass BCG, ACE skeleton stock, JP tube handguard, Nikon scope mount with Leupold 1-4 Hog scope and a AR-Stoner ultra light profiled barrel. (handgrip and bipod are just there for bench shooting)


I am running modified Lancer mags so that I can seat non 300blk specific bullets to mag length by reducing the size of the side ribs to clear 30 cal bullets.
110gr Barnes TTSX at 2500fps


I really like the slickside, but the brass does impact the upper as it is ejected, this occurs with every type of ammo I have tried.

So I grabbed a hunk of black delrin, chucked up a 1.5" sanding drum(O.D. of the upper) in the drill press and broke out my stationary belt/disc sander and started making plastic dust and having a few gobs of molten plastic adhere to the fingers(ouch!!!). I use double sided adhesive scotch tape to temporarily adhere the new brass deflector. The tape has held up fine, but a more permanent attachment is being considered.

That's sweet. I have a smith & Wesson one. Shot a yote with it a few weekends back. I really like the 110 v-max. I have a suppressor bought just waiting on the paperwork to go through.

Mine and my buds both have some wear from the brass kicking out. Dents the mouth of the brass on ever shot.

What load are you using for the 2500 fps?

do not use this recipe upon the potential loss of life or limb...

now after that bit of legal disclaimer stuff....I am running 21.2 grains of H110, the 110gr TTSX seated long at 2.25" will hit 2500, most of the time they are around 2470fps. A hot hunting load for an AR for sure and starting to see some pressure signs. They impact a good 3 inchs higher than the factory Barnes 110gr Tac-TX ammo

At 100 yards from my 300blk Encore, my handloaded 125SMK's have the same impact point as the factory Barnes 110gr ammo

nice AR! I love my 300 Blackout AR. what a practical round for the AR platform. I'd love to have one of my Mini 14 s re barrled to .300 but it would cost more than the rifle is worth.

I love my 300. I now want one in a rem 700 or an encore barrel. I just can not make up my mind which way to go.

The 300blk is perfect, it has similar ballistics to a 30-30 or 762x39, no need for a super whiz bang magnum.

the 300blk is made by shortening the 556/223 brass at the shoulder and then necking it down to 30 cal. it is no large round by any stretch.

Kinda surprised that you are only getting 2500 fps out of a 110 gr bullet. Nice rig, tho.

And that is going beyond what the normal reloader or factory ammo can obtain, I seat the bullets real long into the blackouts super long throat and use the extra space for powder.

I just acquired my first AR. It's a Ruger SR-556 and the upper is machined with a piece like the one that you made. Currently it's spitting out the brass at 2 o'clock and chucking them about 10 feet away. It's also putting little dents in the brass from contacting that little ramp on the upper. Would turning my gas down help this? It's a piston driven AR instead of direct impingement. It seems as though the bolt is slamming back much more violently than necessary. My thought was I could turn the gas down and it would possibly solve the issue of the hard cycling and throwing the brass so far. Any thoughts?

Take a small piece of the fuzzy side of Velcro and stick it on there, no more dented cases.

Sounds like your gas could be turned down, or a wolff XP buffer spring, maybe a heavier buffer. There are several ways to slow down an AR's cycle rate.

It is very common with the 300blk as the case is so much shorter and the case mouth gets dented in and really tears up the rifle. I'd love to take the credit for the idea, but cant, LOL, but I'll take credit for remembering it despite the aged brain cells.........LOL

Help needed finding a flat top upper for a colt pre ban big pin 91 I think. Is this like looking for a snip or unicorn or some other creatures off of a mythical fairytale. Lol Any help locating would be great and price also matters ..

My 300 dents the case mouths pretty good too. As mentioned very normal.

I almost built mine with a slickside upper but found a Aero Precision one local to me at the last minute.

Nice looking rifle talon!

I have a feeling a large pin flat top upper is going to be a custom piece.

Thnx,,, I really prefer the slickside for a hunting rifle and they are easier to convert to a side charger if the mood hits.

Which pin are you referring to? The pin size commonly referred to on Colts are the trigger pins. the only other are the pivot pins and as far as I know they have been the same, right or wrong? I would say any small pin holes can be drilled out to fit any of the large pin size holes. Just get a chart and the right size drill bit.

It would be the hinge pin that looks like 2 screw heads on each side. What I have is a colt HBAR sporter 20".... Don't know much about these things just know it shoots great and want to add a scope for some long range coyote kills.

You are right, I don't know what I was thinking about, a real serious brain fart, hinge and take down pins are the same and the trigger group is the location of the large/small pin issue, LOL I need to make sure I consume enough coffee to engage the brain before posting,,,,LOL
