    I've been loading up 165 grain subsonic for my .308 but I'm limited by the 1:10 barrel twist. The 783 in 300 Blackout has a 1:7 barrel twist which means I'll be able to use 245 grain bullets. I can also resize free brass.
    It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

    Dammit.. Do I buy the Ruger american in .300 now, wait for a 783 HB or just import one with Prophet River?

    I had great success with 208 gr amax loaded subsonic in my 308 with a 10 twist. Shot it out to 200 with no issues. Even loaded them backwards and they shot fantastic. Weird looking but hit hard

    I don't understand everyone's affection for these small, compact HEAVY bolt action rifles. I wish someone would come out with lighter options (yes, i know, Ruger American) or a single shot.

    My local gun store told me they aren’t even on the order form for next year.. You can buy this rifle in a few calibres at Cabela’s, so the .300 should be available.

    Edit:

    I know everyone wants a .223, .308 or a 6.5 Jenner, but some of us have enough guns that we want to play with something odd, like powder coating cast 240’s for the little .300.
