New Daniel Defense DDM4V11 in 300 BLK

Daniel defense 300 BLK

Daniel Defense announced another new rifle recently, this time in 300 BLK. Well, I suppose it might be more accurate to rephrase that: the company reworked an existing rifle to chamber the popular .30-caliber cartridge.

The DDM4V11 is an existing rifle line, with a range of variants that now includes the 300 BLK. The guns have the standard look and feel of a DD rifle from the company’s buttstock to the bronze Cerakote finish. Unloaded, the guns weigh 6.75 pounds with a S2W profile 16″ barrel and 15″ KeyMod handguard.

Daniel Defense enjoys a good reputation in the shooting world. The company’s attention to detail when building rifles seems higher than many of its competitors. These rifles have a suggested retail price of $1,759 and include a hand plastic, impact resistant rifle case.

Interestingly, the 300 BLK continues to receive a lot of support from gun makers and the supporting manufacturers. As many of you know, there is little that has to be done to convert a 5.56 NATO chambered AR-15 to run the 300 BLK. This makes it easy for shooters and manufacturers to convert a rifle to the newer round. With heavy subsonic rounds easily available, in addition to supersonic ones, the caliber appeals to a wide range of people including hunters and suppressor enthusiasts.

    Is it rasis if I think 300BLK is a waste of time, money, effort, and my attention?

    • Al

    “…a suggested retail price of $1,759 and include a hand plastic…”

    And here I thought “hand plastic” was just a euphemism for a Glock.

    Man that is a nice looking rifle.

  • powerwiz

    I have there 300 Blk out AR-15 Pistol. Thing is great.

  • Do you even need a flash hider on a 16″ .300BLK barrel? Pretty sure almost all of the flash is over and done with at about the 14″ mark.

    This is a fairly expensive rifle, but at least with DD you know you’re getting your money’s worth right out the box without having to fiddlefart around with it.
