The DPMS has a fake can.
If you don't need a suppressor, obviously you'll save a lot of money. But that's the only reason I'd consider 300 BLK over 5.56, as it's a more expensive round. 300 BLK is supposedly good for hog hunting.
And don't forget, you can use swap out the 300 BLK upper for a 5.56 upper anytime you want. The magazines and BCG are the same.
A .300 BLK build seems like the perfect caliber for a "do it all" AR. Self defense, home defense, hunting, solid ballistics from a SBR, subsonic/supersonic versatility, compatibility with existing AR parts and mags, ammo cases, etc...
I think I may change one of my builds to a .300 BLK with a Leonidas upper once I get settled whenever I move.
I tend to agree.
