So what is the deal with that round? Looks very interesting

Parent cartridge, ballistics, etc. Ad says it is the best subsonic round developed for the AR platform. How does it compare to the .300 Blackout?

Never heard of it, tag for info.

Almost looks like a .357 sig case with a massively long bullet.

Speculating here, AR10 based rifle using .400 caliber.bullet with tweeked 308win case?

Get the right slippery bullet and I bet it is wicked.

Looks like it fits in a standard 5.56 magazine. Unless the scale of the picture is off.

Here is a Shotshow pic from the ARF page. Supposed to use standard mags.

Looks like a 50 Beowulf cut down and necked. I also wonder how you load that. The bullet looks like it's nearly as long as the loaded cartridge? Must be loaded with ball powder on a centrifuge.

Maybe you start seating the bullet, then flip the press upside down to finish seating it?

That has to be the only cartridge in the world in which the majority of the powder is between the base of the bullet and the case neck.

Good points! Guess we will have to wait and see.

Only way I can see it being successful is if you can use a .45 suppressor instead of one for the .416 Barrett

Since its subsonic, a pistol can will work fine.

I don't see where this would beat a 458 Socom. There is a great selection of bullets in .458 already.
Link Posted: 1/16/2014 9:31:09 AM EST
I think it has less recoil or something than the socom round. Its a funky round. Cool stuff.

Based on that info (at 1000fps) and a 100 yd zero you get...

50 yds: +3.7" (972.4 fps)
150 yds: -12.9" (959.7 fps)
200 yds: -35.2" (947.6 fps)

With bullets that, you know, do more than poke a hole, even at subsonic speeds.

Thanks for that. Do you have the same factors for the heaviest or most common .300 blackout round. Is there a subsonic .458 socom round?
Link Posted: 1/16/2014 11:54:15 AM EST
The bullet shown appears to be a Hornady Match 450gr BTHP Match round (http://www.hornady.com/store/416-Cal-.416-450-GR-Match/), which are $54.00 for a box of 50 at Midway, when available. A full up round will probably be $2.00 each even if you hand load.

Cast bullets + powder coating = cheap, accurate shooters

You can push powder coated cast bullets up to 2000 FPS. Its the future.

Anything that pushes the envelope further - even a little further - is welcome.

If you have the money for it & the ammo/brass, great. Would like to see a range report. Would probably buck the wind a little better than the 300 BLK.

For the reloaders & the "cash challenged" - it does not seem to offer a whole lot of improvement ballistically over the 300BLK heavy bullets.

That's slinging a whole bunch of lead with such a high BC pill. I'm really curious what the recoil is like with subsonic loads. Interesting the the parent cartridge is .50 AE. In the picture it looks more like a 458 SOCOM or 50 Beowulf like another poster suggested. That rim looks markedly more rebated than a .50 AE.

Compared to the Blackout, I bet this is horrifically expensive, but I bet it offers a tad better subsonic performance on game.
Link Posted: 1/16/2014 4:01:36 PM EST
It does look a lot more like a BW rim, doesn't it?

Pretty easy question to answer. Is it the heaviest sub-sonic round developed for the AR?

How about some expanding 530gr .458? Might not shoot quite as flat, but it's gonna make a much bigger hole when it gets there.

I've been doing pretty much the same thing on a Socom case for a couple years already for Bolt action and 308 based systems.

For a little more info guys, head to our website Am-tac.com and check out the specs and info there. We're wrapping up here at SHOT but we'll try and answer questions when we can.

The print in the photos is small to read but it looks like you based your PMBR on a 16" diameter circle?
Link Posted: 1/24/2014 9:51:58 PM EST
Since it takes a 7.62x39 bolt I would imagine that the 416 hushpuppy is chopped and necked .50Beo case. The 458SOCOM was based on the 50AE too but lengthened and rebated rim. So there really isn't a parent case to make 458 from. It looks like you'd be able to run 50beo case through a 416hp die, Tim and call it a day.
