“Shhh… tell everyone!”

That’s how Hornady starts their marketing for their new 300 Blackout Subsonic Ammunition, and gives you a clue who might find an interest.

The bullet weight is 190 grains and “Sub-X” stands for Subsonic eXpanding.


Product Features – 300 Blackout Subsonic Ammunition

“Sub-X™ Bullet Technology

In addition to its patented Flex Tip, long grooves in the gilding metal jacket of the 190 gr Sub-X™ combine with the bullet’s flat profile to ensure expansion.

Proven Performance

Performance of 300 Blackout Subsonic meets or exceeds FBI Protocol terminal ballistic test requirements. Impact velocity of 1,020 fps into ballistic gelatin provides 16-18” penetration and 90%+ weight retention.

Silent and Stealthy

Hornady® Subsonic Ammunition doesn’t have the loud report of a supersonic round, and paired with a suppressor, it’s even quieter. Unique powders optimized for subsonic use result in a low flash signature, ideal for either suppressed or unsuppressed performance.”

According to Hornady this cartridge will meet or exceed the FBI Protocol terminal ballistic test requirements.

The BC is .437 (G1).
