    I have a io Inc ak47 that's upgraded. I put probably 500 rds through it. Should I trade for a brand new ar15 300 blackout?

    I have a ar15 carbine, and a ou shotgun

    have to decide if the ammo versatility is worth the cost to you. I'm a big fan of the 300 but it can be spendy to feed.
    I want an AK for the cheap ammo but I'm not giving up a 300 for it :)

    Probably depends if you plan on getting a can. That's the only thing they are good for IMO.

    The ammo alone would keep me from doing it. If you don't reload I would stick with the AK.

    I vote keep the AK. I have a bolt action .300 blackout suppressed, which is great, but I don't burn through ammo either.

    What's this trade thing you talk about. My small collection only ever seems to grow. A 300 Blackout AND an AK sounds better.

    Kewp the AK. Ammos way less expensive.

    I agree. That is why "and" is better than "or".

    For the OP, I say keep the AK. If you really want to try out 300 BLK, just get an upper for the lower you already own. But if you have a can that is rated for 300 BLK, get a bolt action rifle. It will be much quieter.

    No. Ammo is too much.
    Unless you reload or use supressors

    Ak, means more Beer money at the end of the day! Not a fan of the .300, take care of that AK, it will out last the next 6 generations of yours!
