New .300 AAC Blackout reticle for the 4x32 BROWE Combat Optic available in A-TACS AU Camo
Browe-Inc., manufacturer of premium quality optical systems for military, law enforcement, hunting and the shooting sports, introduces the latest reticle pattern for the 4x32 BROWE Combat Optic (BCO), the horseshoe and Dot for the AAC .300 Blackout. The unit is available in A-TACS AU Camo, tan or black.

The 4x32 BCO AAC .300 Blackout reticle is based on the popular horseshoe and dot style reticle and provides a bullet drop compensated (BDC) reticle for both the subsonic and supersonic ammunition. The 7 MOA horseshoe has a 5 MOA inner dimension and provides an illuminated 2 MOA wide ring for quick target acquisition. The center 1 MOA dot gives the operator that precision shot and was designed to be zeroed at 100m with the supersonic round or 25m with the subsonic round. For long range precision, the 4x32 BCO AAC .300 Blackout reticle features a BDC reticle that ranges out to 900m for the supersonic and out to 400m for the subsonic. The horizontal stadia lines represent 19" at the indicated ranges. The reticle also offers a horizontal mil scale that has an overall length of 30 mils, with indicators every 5 mil.


Dot Color options:

The 4x32 BCO AAC .300 blackout reticle is available in four color options including amber, blue, green, or red. As standard with all the 4x32 BCO's the illumination is controlled automatically with the BCO Target Light Sensor Technology. The target light transmission is measured and automatically adjusts the reticle to the proper illumination level. The 4x32 BCO also features a manual override if a consistent light level is required.

For more information on BROWE's new 4X32 Combact Optic for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, contact BROWE, Inc. at (800) 407-3150 or visit www.browe-inc.com.

Are you running bolt guns or is this an upper for an AR?

The recipe originated in a 12" AR, now runs in a 16" handi rifle.  It is accurate, better than 1 MOA in the AR, haven't shot the handi for groups yet (was too pissed about the various short-comings of the handi.  THEN remembered the handi was $350 and the Noveske 12" was over $1000.)

I moved away from the 220 RN because my M4 feed ramps didn't like them.  In a bolt gun or single action, they load very well.


I have a Kahles 6-24 coming today that will cause some rotation in my current scope lineup, I'll let you know what the 300 gets.

Be advised that subsonic 300 falls from the sky like a meteor.  For that reason, I MUCH prefer FFP with lots of drop on the reticle rather than other's claim to like a red dot.  If you sit over a feeder exactly 100 yards away, red dot is great.  If shots can be 25 yards to 200 yards, a red dot sucks.  Then again, I am a precision guy; if "good enough" is good enough, that's cool, but 300 in sub ain't the best pick for a "good enough" shooter.

Let me know if you have additional questions.  I have run most options of a 300 at some point and have made all the mistakes one can (other than a short round and  baffle strike due to an unstable round, I cringe just thinking of how that might play out.)

Sub or super?


#1: 8" barrels are  much louder than you will expect, even suppressed.
#2: load development is critical if handloading.
#3: Avoid H110 powder, it is very positional- and temperature-sensitive.  
#4:  Case prep is key to reliable extraction and ejection.
#5:  I have been very pleased with pmags on 300, the shoulder on the mag wall  is more pronounced than mil spec, this works well with riding the ogive on 300 rounds and keeping them stable in the mag.

Have fun.

If super, all applies except the H110, which you wouldn't use anyway.

What powder would you recommend for sub and super.  If you have good loads you care to share, can you PM me the recipes?

My best luck has been with 1680 and lil gun.  Some "experts" say "don't use lil gun, it is a supersonic powder", to which I respond, "not if you put less powder in the case!"  

One point is that lil gun does generate less back-pressure than most other loads, so pistol position gas block is a must.  With an 8", I don't think yours could be carbine length and is pistol length.

Rsilver, the "expert" of experts on all things 300,  has not impressed me with his knowledge or recommendations.  He is a big advocate of H110 - recipes on many forums.  I hated H110, chased grimlins in my gun before trying something else and getting MUCH better results.  I started looking online and found many complain of extreme vertical stringing with H110.

My recipe of choice is 8.0 or 8.1 of lil gun over a 208 Amax.  There are many more (11.2 of 1680) that also work well, just not as accurate.  As always, be aware that you need to tweak to keep it barely subsonic.

Don't go too low, I've heard few things suck more than getting a stuck jacketed bullet out of the barrel.

I have run trail boss in sub 308s, I think it is too bulky to get an adequate charge in a 223 case - but I might be wrong.

I just got done building a 16". Haven't shot anything other than Rem 125 Supers through it yet, all though I am in love with it so far.

Well I got this in last Friday.  Initially had a major issue with it.  Overnighted to Browe and they corrected and overnighted back to me and I had it back in hand Monday.  (more details on that in the full review to come)  I haven't had much time with it right now as expected but plan on putting several hundred rounds downrange with it this weekend.  I'll get up a full review soon.
