    1. Polymer tip, optimal for bare gel in an SBR at closer ranges or a rifle at farther ranges.
    -- Rem AccuTip or Atlanta Arms 125. Both will be out this year



    2. Bonded barrier bullet for LE, hunting, self defense.
    -- Not as a bonded, but as a solid copper from Barnes soon. December or January
    -- Probably this round?


    3. Military optimal penetration bullet, along the lines of Mk318/Mk319 SOST.
    -- Probably will happen in 2012.

    4. Match bullet. Optimized for accuracy.
    -- Rem Match 125 grain OTM



    5. Mass Quantity Ammo - a.k.a. cheap!
    -- Remington UMC 115 Grain


    I just updated this... Very impressive we are close to having all these different loads available for the 300 BLK in the near future (late-2011, early-2012). Again, hats off to AAC/Remington to getting this 300 BLK rolling in a big, unstoppable way!

    Yes, that is the Barnes 300 BLK Barrier ammo. The bullet is still being tuned and set up for mass production. Barnes did not tell me when it would be out, but my impression was Nov/Dec/Jan timeframe - but I think November is unlikely as the tips are especially large and the mold was still being created for it.

    Don't forget the lower cost ammo, this will be as important to the growth of the round as any other...

    I think Robert said UMC, OTM, 115 gr (?), sealed and crimped. MSRP $12.99/box.

    Available end of this month or so.

    The TTSX looks nice out of the 9"; do you have similar data for a 16"?

    Not yet. They are still tuning the bullet.

    Nice? That is revoltionary, good old American enginuity at its finest, lets hope this catridge is quickly adopted and ammo prices remain reasonable.
