    Subsonic 300 Blackout Powder Options

    I am working on a low velocity/subsobsonic load for a 230 grain cast boolit in a 300 Blackout on an AR-15 frame. I have, based on thread search, tried 9.5 grains of H-110 and the gun runs like a charm. Now for the problem, I am running out of H-110 powder. Result indicates that Accurate 1680 is a very good choice for this round. Recognizing that I may not be able to find Accurate 1680 anytime soon, I need to find a powder that will work.

    There is about 10 steps between the burn rates of H-110 and Accurate 1680. Why can't I develop a load with ANY of the powders in that range? I have seen some posts that indicate a powder as slow as Reloader 7 can be used.

    Please tell me if this makes sense and where I may be going wrong.

    I've used lil gun, h110 & 1680. All work fine. Seen reports of 5744, 2400 and rl7 all being used successfully in an AR. In my bolt gun, unique works quite well.
    I support your right to keep and arm bears.

    there is data for I4227 and I4198 and subsonic bullets on the Hodgdon site. The data is for jacketed bullets. I have only used H110 with cast lead in my AR platform 300 BO.
