Pipe Hitter 8.6 BLK 16in


This rifle features a 16-inch barrel and is chambered in the innovative 8.6 Blackout, a caliber developed by Q, the creators of the 300 BLK. The 8.6 Blackout is engineered to maximize energy on target, particularly when used with a suppressor. It utilizes a .338 projectile housed in a necked-down .308 casing, achieving remarkable performance thanks to a rapid 1:3 twist rate in the barrel.

The essence of this rifle’s design is its ability to deliver high energy upon impact. The fast-spinning bullet ensures that when it hits a target, it not only stops moving forward but also quickly ceases spinning. This dual-stop mechanism is crucial for effective energy transfer. Given the constraints of muzzle velocity in shorter barrels, the solution lies in enhancing the spin rate of the bullet. This approach has been demonstrated impressively in gel tests, which showcase the devastating effectiveness of the 8.6 Blackout in stopping targets efficiently.

For those interested in cutting-edge ballistic technology and superior suppressed performance, purchasing this rifle offers an exclusive entry into the 8.6 Blackout Club. Its design is a testament to innovation in modern firearms, providing shooters with a powerful tool for precision and impact.
