I'm using N320 for mine. I'm only using 5.x-6.xgr depending on the load. Accurate 1680 used to be the cat's meow to get stuff to cycle. It works because it's gassy, but it's also and loud and dirty by comparison. H110/296 will cycle well in most suppressed setups. Problems start to show up in non-suppressed setups with failure to hold the bolt open especially with carbine gas.

Does yours cycle?

I'm somewhat interested in a intentionally getting it not to cycle, just to see how quiet it is.

Go to the Hodgdon Reloading site, select "300 AAC Blackout", "130gr", "Hodgdon", "Trail Boss".

I couldn't get that to cycle with my normal setup. I could've gone the way of trying to get lighter BCG and springs, etc, but it wasn't worth all that to save a few pennies per round.

Just curious...will be noticeably quiet if it isn't cycling?

I'd say noticeably quieter, but quiet is more subjective. I don't have a decibel meter to give you any numbers.
