Don't let anyone fool you a AR will have no problem dropping any size deer.
The .223 will shoot out farther with accuracy but since the bullet is lighter there may be more issues with windage and the energy at distance is debatable. Lets face it most people will not be able to take a shoot at a deer past 350 yards. The ACC .300 will have at least a 110 grain bullet if not something larger as big as 220 grain.
I shoot 77 grain ( 223 ) at 600 yards, makes a nice group on paper. In winter we shoot the steel target and I can ring it all day. but when I shoot my M1A with a 147 grain SA, 2 hits on the steel we got to have a cease fire and go down and reset the target that I just knocked over. I don't shoot the ACC .300 at 600 yards ( you would have to aim at the stars since the bullet would arc so much).
The ACC .300 Blackout is great for Coyote hunts, wild boar and it is cheap to reload, not much powder and many bullet choices.
I'd pick my FAL, personally. But I have ARs too. Best is to get a few of everything....
Indeed. Aim for the tree tops on the sub sonic rounds 220 gr 920fps
125 gr super sonics just like 7.62x 39 from an ak. Drop is not so bad
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
Unless of course you found some super special powder. The .300 BLK round simply will not have the range of the 7.62 x 39 round. The math just does not compute. The casing is smaller than that of the 5.56 round, I understand that there are some amazing things you can do with the loading...but there is just not enough room in the casing to create the energy you would need to give .300 BLK the range of the .308 round.
Short range the 7.62X39 will do. Everyone should own a least one weapon that fires the 7.62X39. There are some many Calibers out there . I want something common much easier to find ammo for it. Nothing like a bunch of deer walking through the yard and no bullets.
I still like a good lever gun is a viable choice, but I do agree that a 7.62 x 39 is a great option.
And I don't see how one could go wrong with an SKS. Cheap, reliable, robust, and is a 200 yard rifle on humanoid sized targets.
For the price of a AR, or Mini 14, you could buy 3 or 4.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
Accordingly, I recommend the Benjamin Rogue. http://www.crosman.com/airguns/rifles/pcp/BPE3571LE The problem with the other recommendations is the loud report, will will attract more zombies. The Rogue has a much quieter report.
How you will recharge the Rogue, well, that's your problem. Perhaps there is a multi-stage pump out there. If that's the case, all you need is a hunk of lead and cast for your preferred bullet.
