Avoiding the .300BLK AR-15 ka-boom!
« on: September 03, 2016, 07:06:21 AM »
Safety should be first and foremost when dealing with firearms and the ammunition that they fire.

We know that we can shoot a .38 Special round in a firearm intended for the  the .357 magnum, but we cannot shoot a .357 magnum in a revolver intended for .38 Special, because physically, the .357 cartridge cannot be chambered in a revolver meant for .38 Special.  The same applies to attempting to chamber a .44 magnum cartridge in a revolver meant to fire only .44 Special.

In the long gun world, we have instances where cartridges can be chambered in rifles that should not be chambered. The .300 BLK and .223/5.56x45 is one instance.

We all like bangs, but Ka-booms are unwanted.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.
