    I just picked up a Ruger american ranch in .300 blackout.
    Been reloading for a long time but this will be my first go at the 300 bo
    the plan is to run everything through a suppressor that should be here wed.
    Picked up some 220gr hornady and have some 240gr cast on the way.

    Would like to hear what other guys are having luck with in the way of sub loads.

    I got a Ruger American Ranch in .300Blk for Christmas as well.. I've only put 40 factory rounds through it so far, but I am happy with it. With the Sico Omega, it's very quiet.
    Search on Google or Yahoo for "www.dayattherange.com" -the guy has several great pages on reloading for the 300blk, both supers and subs. And he's a fan of the Ranch rifle. I haven't read every page, just a quick look and I bookmarked it for later. I haven't started reloading yet, but I plan to soon. Sorry I don't have any real world reloading advice but I do hope this helps!

    I've read his pages but would like to find some sub loads that use bluedot or w-231.

    I've been really happy using 1680 and WC680 powder for subs.
    My RARR doesn't like to feed the broad metplat cast bullets... and even has trouble with the lighter, pointier 203 grain cast pills. The bullets pop up and hit the flat above the chamber and hang up. I haven't figured out a fix yet.

    Mine LOVES the 110 grain TacTx bullets loaded super, close to max over H110. Sweet cloverleaf groups.

    Hi Mark.
    If I push the first bullet forward in the mag they seem to feed better.
