I'm now also looking at the .30 AR as a possible round for a project I have in mind...the same project where I am also looking at for the .30 BLK.

All of these calibres look suitable for the project, but the .30 BLK looks like a winner because .223 cases are a lot easier to source, and a damn sight cheaper, than either .284 Win or .450 Bushmaster cases.

the hat was the 2nd clue to the scope. read a testfire on them the other day so had inkling thats what it would be.
an aimpoint.
as for calibre.... might be .270!!!!or 30/06??? or 9.3????
definately hits hard and is a long action..cases look that size to me.

You were right, Elvis. It's an Aimpoint.
www.aimpoint.com/us/pr...duct/H34L/

7mm Rem Mag is the caliber, but it sure doesn't look like it kicks like a 7mm.

This chart maybe of some help.

Interesting...good thing about the BLK is it can be loaded subsonic and is still effective albeit at reduced ranges and velocity.

Vince, I'm sure you could load the .30 RAR to subsonic velocities also. It would be interesting to see what a 220 grain bullet would do in the RAR. However, if you stick a 150 grain SST in the .30 RAR it will be supersonic out to about 1,000 yards (according to Hornady's ballistics calculator). Please remember that my original interest was in an AR-15 DEER platform.

The .30 RAR doesn't have a fast enough twist rate to stabilize a 220gr bullet subsonic. I think most subsonic barrels in .308 have a 1:7 twist. Otherwise the bullet will just tumble after it leaves the barrel.

Thanks Slim. Looks like a .308" with a 1 in 10" twist would stabilize a 1.4" long bullet (Greenhill formula). I don't know the length of a .30 cal 220 grain RN but some .312" 200 grain Grand Slams that I have measure 1.28".

1.02 is the length of the cast 220 grain slug that we can buy over here cheap as...under $20 for 50.

Don't know the length of the 220gn boollit...but I soon will...my mate picked up a mould the other day.

He has decided he wants to go the .30 BLK route and has tooled up to form cases (we have hundreds of .223 cases to spare), cast boollits and load.

I now have an old .303 barrel that is in good condition, and that should be suitable to build something around.
