    With the distances listed. I’d say stick with 223/556.

    Seeing as you have the 30 cal suppressor, maybe 7.62x39 would be a unique choice.

    I’m guessing AR15 platform?

    You said you want to keep it short, maybe a pistol build. Like a 10.5” 223/556. Or a 8” 300blk.

    The pistol 223/556 will still get the distance, maybe not the 300.

    I don’t like short 308s under 20”. Loud AF even when suppressed.

    If you want to hunt at 300 yards then 223 would not be my first choice for anything other than varmints.

    16" 308 win would be my pick, I've got an 18" that I shoot suppressed and two 300 blk's 16' bolt and 8" AR. would not use them for anything but short range.

    Is there a big price difference in the ammo?

    i just re-barreled my savage 308 with a savage 10 tactical 20” barrel in 308 that is factory threaded. i put an ASR muzzle brake on it so i could quickly attach my can.

    my groups went from 1-1.5” to 1/2-3/4” at 100

    im using handloads and theyre super sonic. all i hear is the sonic crack. i dont hear the BOOM of the powder igniting. this is with a bolt gun. its a little louder with my ar10 as when the action cycles you get a little bit more noise due to gas escaping thru the upper receiver when the bolt slides back.

    i can shoot 308 all day without earplugs.

    now, with subsonic 300blk its very quiet. im handloading 208gr bullets at 1049fps. i shoot it out of an AR. all i hear is the action cycling. it sounds like a pneumatic nail gun.
