Gemtech subsonic 300 AAC Blackout ammo for sale online by Omaha Outdoors is ideal for shooting with a Gemtech silencer – or any other brand of sound suppressor.
Gemtech subsonic 300 AAC Blackout ammo for sale online by Omaha Outdoors perfectly compliment their line of sound suppressors, also referred to as silencers, as well as silencers made by other manufacturer. These loads are specially designed to be as reliable, effective, and quiet as possible – not to mention easier to clean up after.
Gemtech Can? Gemtech Bullets
There are plenty of 300 AAC Blackout ammunition options out there, and some of them include subsonic loads. But very few come under the same brand name of a manufacturer of silencers as well as ammunition, and one of these select few is Gemtech Ammunition. Offering 300 AAC Blackout in 220gr, 187gr, and 147gr loads, Gemtech knows exactly which powders and methods to use in order to create a quiet yet devastatingly effective load. This is a new and exciting development from a company that had yet to seriously venture into the ammunition world.
A subsonic bullet must, depending on altitude and other factors, stay below about 1100 feet per second, a point known as the sound barrier. When a bullet does not break the sound barrier, it does not go supersonic and thus does not create the sonic “crack” that is often the more damaging portion of the report of a firearm to the human ear. These subsonic bullets, then, are desirable not only to those who shoot with silencers, but those concerned about long term hearing loss as well.
Don't be left thinking that subsonic bullets aren't effective due to their lower velocity, though. From a brief comparison of specs, the Gemtech 300 AAC Blackout Subsonic 220gr HPBT at 1060fps is a good bit more powerful than a standard 230gr FMJ 45 ACP at 850fps, but with a big advantage: the 220gr HPBT has a much better ballistic coefficient and is, as a result, capable of accurate shooting at far greater distances than the average 45 ACP. Their 187gr Polymer Tip Subsonic 300BLK is meant for deer and hog hunting as well as home defense.
In fact, since 300BLK never decelerates through the transonic region like traditional supersonic match bullet loads, experiencing a brief moment of instability along the way, there is a potential for very high accuracy at extreme ranges with the 300 AAC Blackout – assuming you account for other factors that come into play with such a long flight time!
Subsonic 22 LR Goes Pew Pew
300 Blackout isn't the only subsonic load sold by Gemtech, though. Their Silencer Subsonic 22LR load, with a 42 grain bullet at 1020 feet per second at the muzzle, will be about as quiet as you can expect from a silenced firearm. That's not the only positive attribute: it's extremely accurate, too, and it'll cycle the majority of semi auto 22LR firearms on the market even without a silencer. With a premium lube on the bullet and a cleaner powder, it also makes cleaning your gun after shooting hundreds of rounds suppressed much easier.
Gemtech ammunition, like their silencers, is made in the USA to exacting specifications and with high levels of quality control.
