Default 30 cal supressor

I have been researching supressors for weeks as I want to make a good decision since I'll likely have it forever. I'm looking for a 30 cal can. Right noe it will be run on a Tikka CTR 308 and my ruger m77 6.5 creed. Eventually it will get some time on an AR platform in 300 BO or 6.8spc.

Right now I've been looking at the thunderbeast ultra 9, silencerco Saker SAR, or the dead air sandman TI. How do you choose with almost no way to shoot or test models out? Any suggestions?

You will be very disappointed with the weight of the saker asr . Most of the full length cans (9Ē) will sound very similar . I would suggest going with something thatís less than 20ounces ...

Thunderbeast are worth the money.

Donít discount the cyclone from aac in direct thread. Very happy with that one as well.

Iíve been happier with direct thread than QD but YMMV.

I bought a Thunderbeast ultra 7 and love it.

I looked at all the popular models websites and selected based on accuracy since mine are on bolt action rifles then weight and finally decibel reduction. Also read a lot of reviews.

In the end you just have to pick one as you can't test drive. There's many good ones on the market. One thing you can do is hang out at the range and listen to some then ask questions to actual users. One thing to remember, shooting under a covered range makes them seem louder and they'll generally seem louder when being shot from an ar.

When I'm in the market for another it will likely be another ultra 7. I'd really like to hear an ultra 5 from a non magnum bolt gun but have never seen one in person.

OP, I was in your exact situation in June of last year, and was looking for a can for my .260, 300BO, and 6.5 Grendel. I went with the Ultra 7 , and the selling point on it was that it is only 9.7 ounces, compared to many that are in the 20+ ounce range. Compared to the Ultra 9, the decibel reduction is only 2-3 decibels less, and I felt that saving the 2" was worth it. I've only put about 60 rounds through it, but I've been very pleased and would buy it again.

Good luck!

I have one of each, an S and an L.

I will be buying more suppressors in the not so distant future and I'll be sticking with Dead Air. Their QD mounting system is rock solid and the suppressors are top notch. If you're looking for a direct threading suppressor, check out the Sandman TI model. I have no direct experience with them but reviews put them up there with the S and L versions.

Look into the Silencerco Harvester. It is really light and gets amazing reviews. Won't break the bank either. I think my next one will be the Sandman K. It's not as quiet as the full size suppressors but it is crazy short!

I like the Omega. The Hybrid is 3oz heavier but is extremely versatile. Put a flat end-cap on the Omega and it is 6” long.

I'm happy with my SiCo Omega. I have run it on a 308 bolt gun, a 300blk SBR, and multiple 5.56s 12"-16" in length. It sounds good on all of them, at least to me. It has multiple mounting options. It ships with a direct thread mount, an ASR mount, and a coupon for a break or flash hider of your choice. I also have the flat front cap, and with that and the direct thread mount it is super light and short. You can even buy a dead air keymo mount for it and run the dead air mounting system, if you're into that sort of thing. If I could do it again, I would buy another Omega. I have been thinking about adding a sandman to the collection and swapping everything to the keymo mounts, but that's low on the list right now.

Default 30 cal supressor

Iíve been happy with my Silencerco Saker762. I went with the Saker because I wanted to use it on my 300RUM and it was one of the few 30 caliber cans rated for it. I havenít gotten to stretch itís legs, but at 100 once I dialed in for the poi shift it shot I shot a quarter sized group out of a stock Remington action and barrel in a McMillan stock.

I have Omega and Harvester. Harvester is lighter but longer.

Omega is rated to 10" barrell with 223 and 16" with 308.
Harvester is rated to 16" barrell with 223 and

People sleep on the Crux. I've got a nemesis30 on hold for now. Plan on putting on the 300 SBR and a 6.5cm. Minimal POI shift... Even between models! full titanium (light). Don't let the retail$ fool you. It can be found for a few hundred cheaper at your local shop. I can't wait to put it to the test!

https://loadoutroom.com/10600/crux-suppressors-2/

"Crux Suppressors are Light, some of the lightest on the market, shattering the competition especially in their .338 Lapua Magnum Suppressors. They are accurate, consistent, and tough. Of course, every rifle is different, but many professional shooting competitors are seeing very minimal to no POI shift from unsuppressed to suppressed.

For suppressor re-attachment, there is no POI shift, but hold on, it doesn’t stop there for POI shift. You can even change suppressors and shoot a different serial number and they both shoot to the exact same place. And that’s not all, you can even change between different models of suppressors from short to long and they hold the exact same zero. This was even done while setting the longest suppressed shot record at 3670 yards by zeroing a .338 Norma Mag with a Crux Nemesis338 (6”) Suppressor, taking it off and setting the record with an Crux Ark338 (7.5”) Suppressor with no adjustments for POI shift because there is none.
"


Record was broken at the 2014 Nat Guard Sniper Comp Demo Day.

I agree on the Crux. They are not as big as some of the other outfits but Iíve been extremely pleased with the 2 that I own. Super light weight, minimal to zero point shift and rated for nearly any caliber most people will ever shoot.

I'm shooting a ACC SD-762 on a multitude of weapons and it does all that I have asked.
Here is a vid of a neighbors nephew shooting it, using a Ruger Ranch in 300BO with 220gr subs. 75 yds. Very quiet. Even shooting supers with it is fine, 150gr Winchesters. Deer have not been spooking after shot around feeder, and the Axis have dropped in their tracks.
