.300 fits in the AR-15 form factor, 7.62x39 requires AR-10 based bolt for a long term endurance, AR-15 sized 7.62x39mm bolts are notorious for cracking.

In the US, .300 Blackout offers a lot more to the reloader, due to the massive variety of bullets available in .308 diameter.

 

The downside, AIUI, is that vigorous use of the forward assist can result in a .300 cartridge getting fully chambered in a 5.56, resulting on kaboom.

Do not fucking use that forward assist. If it wont go into battery, there is a good reason.

Bingo, if you have to use that button you need to stop and figure out the real problem.

So far I have recognized only one situation that the forward assist makes sense, when the attached grenade launcher kocks the bolt out of battery wiht its recoil. Happened to me with a G36 with AG36 and I guess is the same for an M4. Otherwoise I agree, when it does not chamber properly there is something in the way and it willm ake problems worse.

Sturmgewehr 57 - history, quirks, and features. Or how the Swiss armed all their soldiers with a LMG instead of an assault rifle. Note also the size of those rifle grenades.

Yugoslavia tested SIG 510 as a LMG* in about 1958. for a paratroopers, but idea was dropped when para brigade was disbanded in 1959.

 

* It is not clear if those tested were in the 7.5x55 Swiss, 7.9x57mm, 7.92x33 or even 7.62x39mm.
