It's a nice shot. I mostly fire subsonic since it's cheaper, but all in all, well worth it. I'm not a hunter, but those I've spoken with about the 300, they love it. Mine is just for fun at the range and in laws farm. Still might take up hunting since I have a great place to do so. Plus I love some venison steaks...How do you like 300 Blk as a round? I've considered getting a new upper for my rifle but I'm not sure.
