For hunting or personal protection, the .300 Whisper offers low recoil with big performance.
The 300 Blackout provides .30-caliber power from the standard AR-rifle platform.

Gun of the Week: Smith & Wesson M&P15 300 Whisper

Lehigh Defense worked in conjunction with J.D. Jones to develop accurate .300 Whisper bullets that open at subsonic velocities.
From J.D Jones' tough criteria was born the .300 Whisper, a cartridge that has users as diverse as the bullets and tasks it will handle.
