Garand Thumb Fires The 8.6 Blackout Round

OptimusPrime

Garand Thumb gets satisfaction with the 8.6 Blackout round saying it is the quietest round they ever shot. The 8.6 Blackout, developed by Kevin Brittingham and his team at Q, is often referred to as the big brother of 300 Blackout. It does for AR-10’s what 300BLK did for AR-15’s. The parent case is 6.5 Creedmoor, trimmed down and necked up for a .338 projectile. The heavier mass means more energy transfer on target, and barrels are run with a fast 1:3 twist for devastating terminal performance.

Garand Thumb With The VSS Vintorez

OptimusPrime

Garand Thumb tries the VSS Vintorez if it is the quietest sniper rifle Russia has to offer... "The VSS 'Vintorez' is such an odd rifle that was in many ways massively ahead of it's time. The 9x39 is closest to the 8.6 blackout in terms of bullet weight (though it still lighter than those loadings typically). In today's video we take one of the few examples in the United States and go over this very fascinating design."

Garand Thumb got one to test and give his thoughts... "The M338 is currently in competition to replace several different weapon systems for both SOCOM and the US Army. And although it’s still early it is a real treat to be able to get some hands on time with this prototype MMG."
