The 8.6 Blackout, aka 8.6 BLK or 8.6mm Creedmoor, is a new cartridge developed by Q, the company that brought us the Honey Badger, The Fix bolt-action rifle and the company’s own line of suppressors. The 8.6mm is .338 caliber, and while it’s an absolute wimp compared to standard .338 cartridges (.338 Win. Mag. laughs at your weakness!) it’s designed to make putting a whole lot of lead downrange much easier. The 8.6 Blackout is actually a modern version of an old idea. In broad strokes, 8.6 BLK is an intermediate medium-bore cartridge. Those aren’t new. The .351 Winchester Self Loading and .35 Remington cartridges were the exact same thing and both pre-date World War . That isn’t a bad thing, however, as .351 WSL and .35 Remington were very popular and for good reason. Within reasonable distances, they allowed you to smack something like a deer or hog with a heck of a lot of lead without beating up your shoulder too badly.
However, 8.6 Blackout also has a particular angle in that it was created with suppressed shooting in mind, and indeed, is even optimized for it. That’s enough of a difference to essentially revitalize the old cartridge design ethos for the 21st Century.
Gorilla currently offers a 300-grain self-defense and hunting load with a copper flat hollow point, a 300-grain Sierra MatchKing subsonic, a 210-gr Barnes TSX and a 285-grain fracturing subsonic load which appears to be similar to the 300-grain self-defense/hunting load.
So, is 8.6 Blackout all tactical hat and no cattle? Well, that sort of depends on what you might use it for…
