308 Subsonic ammo testing

I needed some subsonic 308 ammo to do some testing with and so I called my friend Chad from Dallas Reloads.

I have ran his 300 Blackout ammo and it ran great.

I am testing a rifle project I am working on with Tim Frampton from Weatherly.

16″ threaded 308

Why 308 for subs?

Simple, I can still run full power 308 which clearly stomps 300 BO.

Out of a bolt gun with a can subsonic 308 is wicked quiet. I believe quieter than 300.

Chad runs the Sierra 180g softpoint.and I fully intend to shoot some does with it. I do not expect to have expansion so my shots would be limited to close range head shots on stationary targets only.

Standby for more info and hopefully some action on video.

    Whats he getting for a box of these?? I could use 500 rds for my new can. I been shooting Quiet Quest with a 175 match king but if the price is right I’ll be happy to shoot these?

    Subsonic .308 is crazy quiet! The giggle factor is awesome! My experience showed it to be 4 mils low at 100 yards.
