The high performance, compact round was originally developed by Advanced Armament Corp. (AAC) as a method of launching 30 caliber projectiles from the AR platform without a reduction in magazine capacity and while retaining compatibility with the standard bolt.
Aguila Ammunition’s .300 AAC Blackout delivers broad capabilities in a shorter, lightweight, durable, and low-recoiling package. “Our new .300 AAC Blackout design delivers impact and accuracy, with low recoil much like other Aguila rounds,” says John Domolky, Director of Sales for TxAT/Aguila Ammunition, “and exceeds the 5.56x45mm in reliability in every barrel length, and especially in pistol lengths.
As the .30 caliber round of choice for most AR15 platform hunters and many 3-Gun shooters, our customers have been asking for an Aguila round to meet these standards. We’ve been working closely with our manufacturing team in Cuernavaca to see this SAAMI-certified, 150-grain bullet developed and it’s finally time to get it in the market for tactical applications, self-defense pistols and bolt-action hunting rifles.”
The sales team at TxAT/Aguila Ammunition is working on deep distribution for this product. It’s currently available in a 50-round box with a 20-round box option being added soon. There is no doubt, like with all Aguila Ammunition, the .300 AAC Blackout will yield a competitive, yet customer friendly price-point.
