    From what I have read it has the same ballistics as the 300Ham'r, 130grn bullet @ 2500fps. Loaded ammo for the 300Ham'r is only available from Wilson Combat but it can be loaded using brass from Starline brass or brass made from .223.

    Would it really be any better ballistics wise than the .300 Blackout? It would seem like just another reinvention of the wheel, as are a lot of the "newer" calibers.

    Nothing. The AR10 is a great platform utilizing 308-length rounds. But, it is heavy. Hence, all the efforts toward finding a cartridge suitable for the lighter AR15 with more oomph. Any responsible gun owner should have both!

    a 90 gr gold dot at 3000fps in 6.8 does quite a bit of damage

    The AR-15 is a short action, limited in what can fitted in it. You can either have a light bullet fast, or a heavy bullet slower. The original 5.56 was designed to put down threats fast at closer ranges where it really matters, some how people feel a need to change that.
