G2 Research is now selling a new 300 BLK load called the .300 Ripout Round. The ammo uses an all-copper, 200 grain bullet designed to expand at low velocities.
The load is designed to be subsonic and produces 1020 fps at the muzzle (unknown barrel length for testing.) According to the company, the rounds are designed to penetrate 17+” with 98%+ weight retention.
According to G2, the bullets are CNC machined and are “expensive to make.” MSRP is $54.99 for a box of 20 rounds.
The company is expected to release a similar load for the 7.62×39 in the early part of 2015.

Serious Stopping Ammunition From G2
Winder, GA, December 18, 2014-G2 Research announces a devastating new subsonic .300 AAC Blackout-caliber round for hunting or tactical use. The new G2 Research .300 Ripout Round produces a massive wound channel that ensures hunters of an accurate, sure and swift kill. www.G2Rammo.com
This new subsonic (suppressor-friendly), premium-grade, 200-grain .30 caliber round quickly expands at reduced velocities, creating a devastating, energy-depositing wound channel of one inch or more. Bullet weight retention is an astounding 98 to 100 percent, which creates more than 17 inches of soft tissue penetration.
Free from the massively overdone hydrostatic shock prevalent in so many of today’s ultra-high-velocity loads, the sub-sonic G2 Research .300 Ripout Round will kill ’em quick and quietly without turning good game meat into useless jelly. Needless to say, this round is excellent for tactical use too.
G2 Research national sales manager Chris Nix says “if the idea is to put the animal down efficiently, quickly and humanely without over-penetration and vaporizing good eating meat, our .300 Blackout Ripout Round, with its unique three copper petal controlled expanding bullet, gets that job done.”
Individually manufactured in highly specialized CNC machines, each expensive-to-make bullet is precision machined to open up within the first two to three inches of impact, resulting in a controlled expansion of three large copper petals called tridents that make up the first half of the bullet. (A .30 caliber bullet, for example, will expand between 1 and 1.5 inches while the bullet shank remains attached for controlled penetration even at subsonic velocity.)
