PCC! As a recent Stribog owner, I cannot stress enough that you should buy one of these:

It's the best $ value gun I have ever purchased. Great build quality, aftermarket is exploding, accurate, reliable, just a whole lot of fun.

The Stribog looks interesting, but I'm not too sure $800 with proprietary magazines is really the best way to enter such a crowded market. It's always good to see enthusiastic owners but for me, at that price point (actually a bit less right now), I really like the AK-V from PSA:

Make mine lean, mean, and 9x19!

I've had both, still have the 300. I like the 220gr subs nice and quiet through my Specwar. Also I had lots of issues with the 9mm AR. The CZ Scorpion was much more reliable but still louder than the 300 so that's why I still have the 300.

The Ramshot Data clearly said to use only in a fully supported barrel....NO Glocks.
I don't reload 40. Not sure what your point is but here is a picture of my Glock barrel. Note the full support.
From what I've read all newer model Glock 10 mm barrels are fully-supported for years now--though my older 20sf barrel isn't, easy enough to get a good lone wolf barrel replacement for older Glock barrels.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!

After holding off from the 300BO bandwagon for a long time, I finally borrowed a friend's 300BO AR and shot several different subsonic rounds in different brands with my Silencerco Hybrid suppressor. OK...kind of see what the hub-bub is all about. I bought a 9.5" 300BO barrel and built up a pistol with a KAK Shockwave brace. I was using 208g AMAX Hornady subsonic factory ammo, and it performed amazingly. It's quiet and least within 125 yards or so.

I started reloading 208g Hornady ELD-Match in subsonic, and it yields identical suppressed performance. This is a really quiet gun, and it throws a huge bullet downrange very accurately within its envelope. I think the advantage of the 300BO over the 9mm subsonic is the much heavier bullet you get and the energy it delivers at 100 yards or so.

Have both a CZ Scorpion 9mm PCC and a Springfield Saint pistol in 300 AAC Blackout. Don't shoot subsonic loads in the 300 as POI is drastically different than supersonic loads. I handload 125-150 grain ammo for the Blackout. Love both the guns. 9mm is as any 9mm is. As long as you know what the use as intended is, and shoot as such, no problems. 9mm is cheap to shoot and loads of fun out to 50 yards or so. 300 blackout is fun to load for and also quite gratifying to "roll your own". Loads of fun to shoot. I think if you limit the range to 150 yards or so, would make an accurate small game caliber. I plan on trying it on deer size game next year. Ammo cost is the big killer on 300 Blackout, unless you also reload. Possibilities are endless. Ralph

Practicality wise, depends on what your intentions are. I’ve got both PCC’s and .300BLK (bolt actions) and like them both a lot. My PCC’s are a riot to go blasting with my cast loaded 9mm rounds and 32rnd Mags. I actually make my own .300blk because I also reload for .223/5.56. If it doesn’t past visual inspection for the .223’s, into the .300blk pile it goes. Now I mainly prefer bolt guns because I have become super lazy when it comes to policing my brass lol. Now, what would I suggest each for? A PCC is primarily a fun range gun or urban self defense system to me. Can the .300blk fill both roles? Absolutely. The PCC would be more cost effective in the ammo department. The .300blk in a AR though can do exactly the same as a PCC while also being a viable hunting cartridge. Build expenses would be much easier on the wallet for the .300blk, especially if you already have a lower you like and just want to build a upper.
