Well, I do realize all the negativity about the 300BLK unless suppressed but, it is the modern day 30-30 for me. I have been working with different bullet weights and using them in the MSR and bolt action and it has its advantages. I reload so that takes the cost factor out of it, Brass comes from old 223 cases that don't make the cut, and powder I already have from reloading x39s. Yes, I reload X39s, been doing it for more than 20 years now. A 150 in a x39 bolt was my hunting choice for years after the 30-30. Right now I prefer a 30 cal to the 223 for hogs. Just a bit more hitting power, especially with Lehigh Defense heads, they just rock. Good luck with it.
