Wilson Combat’s new .300 HAM’R is to the .300 Blackout (BLK) what the .300 Win. Mag. is to the .308 Win. All it takes is a barrel change.
There will no doubt be a fair degree of internet angst over this new .30-caliber AR-15 cartridge with the predictable refrains of “it’s just marketing” and “it doesn’t do anything my .300 BLK doesn’t do.” No, it isn’t and yes, it does (respectively).
Like many of you, I remain in love with the AR-15 but I was content with the rifles I already own. I was also skeptical of a new chambering in this still extremely popular, albeit slow-selling rifle, at least as of late. I already own rifles in 5.56x45mm, .300 BLK and 6.5 Grendel. I thought I was done.
The new .300 HAM’R offers a big step up in terminal performance over the .300 BLK by offering anywhere from 100 to 300 feet per second (fps) increase in velocity. That’s from factory-loaded offerings using the same bullet weights and same barrel lengths.
