Got an email this morning from Wilson Combat re: a new round they're calling the 300 HAM'R.


From the website:

"The 300 HAMíRģ was developed for optimal terminal performance and offers near .308 Winchester effectiveness, amazing accuracy and low recoil in the lightweight and compact WC15 platform. Terminal performance testing on over 200 Texas feral hogs has proven it to kill much more effectively than the 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, 7.62◊39 or 300 Blackout. Due to the optimization of bullet weight to barrel twist, accuracy has proven to be outstanding. Sub one-inch groups are the norm with multiple bullet choices for varying applications such as hunting, target shooting and tactical use. Undoubtedly the 300 HAMíR will be compared to the popular 300 BLACKOUT or 7.62◊39 and as the comparison charts below indicate, ballistics of the 300 HAMíR far exceeds the 300 BLACKOUT and 7.62◊39 in both velocity and energy when utilizing 110-150gr bullets."

As usual, claims are it's the best thing ever, blows away the 300 blackout (several obvious problems with their biased comparison), and nearly equals a 7.62x54 in a 5.56 sized package. I'll wait a year and see how it fares before I consider adopting.
