Default $700 for a suppressor

I'm in the market for a hunting suppressor to use on my Remmy 300blk, and a 6.8SPC in a AR platform. I don't want to spend more than 7 bills on the can. What would you gents suggest and I'd like to hear from those that shoot these guns with a can. I'll be hunting with the platforms mentioned above at a distance of no more than 100yds using handloaded sub ammo in South/Central Texas.

Sorry for not being clear, but just the can. Tax is a none issue.

Torrent's stainless 7.62 can will put you somewhere just over that with stamp. .Very effective can but heavy.

You can get a silencerco omega for just a little over that without stamp. That would be the route to go imo.

Look at Griffin I have run several of their cans and like them. The AAC cyclone is another good one. The LaRue Tranquillo is a great option as well. I just picked up one of the LaRues and am super satisfied with it.

Another $200 opens you up to about all the different suppressors out there. Might as well pick the one that best fits your needs.

How much do the silencers cut down on the noise? I shoot a 270 and my kids shoot a 243. I'm kinda interested in getting one for at least one of our guns.

If you are willing to go a couple hundred more dollars, check out the griffin armament Recce 7, I’ve got one and it’s hands down amazing. Amazing sound decibel reduction. I run supers 300 black out in my AR and no ear ringing. And shoot .308 AR10 platform with no ringing of the ears either.

It cuts out enough to make it hearing safe. You will still hear it, just not the big boom. Also the noise it makes shooting an animal with a suppressed gun is addicting. Shot a spike on Friday with my suppressed 243 and sounds like a sledge hammer hitting concrete.

I see that your occupation says 5-0. Silencer co offers SPEQ (special equipment) discounts to first responders. I saved a little more than $100 on my omega. You have to find a dealer that offers the SPEQ program. My dealer near Waco does.

yep. I also like getting back to camp and saying I shot at a sounder of pigs. Having my dad ask how many times and answering with 4 and him not even knowing

For hunting with a 300blk I can't say enough good things about the Omega 9k. It is super compact/lightweight, hearing safe with a great tone. And now they make an ASR mount for it. If you want lightweight but bigger and quieter, the Omega 300 is an awesome can too.

I would take a hard look at the Dead Air Nomad. It's very versatile and represents the cutting edge of innovation from a great and humble company.

For your stated purposes an AAC 7.62 SDN-6 can be bought for the mid $500 range and will do everything you need it to.

It ainít the newest fanciest can out there but itís a workhorse that will serve you well and save you some $$.

I run a SilencerCo Hybrid on my 300 10.5" and 6.8 16" I shoot those guns the most and I love it. Plus you can buy a new threaded cap and run it on a 1/2x28. It comes with 5/8x24 and a .46 end cap. I bought a 7.62 end cap but I did not notice much difference between the 46 and the 7.62 on my 6.8spc. I did notice a small difference on my 300 pistol. Have not shot any 6.8 subs though it but 308 subs with that can sound like a BB gun.

Thanks for everyone's input on this matter. I think I've narrowed it down to the SilencerCo Harvester and the Omega. With the LE program I can get either one at a great price point. Thanks again gents

I'd encourage you to hold off a couple of weeks. I bought another YHM on Black Friday last year and Silencer Shop paid for the NFA Stamp. I saw an email from them the other day saying more Black Friday deals were coming.

In the world of waiting for a suppressor to get "out of jail", 2 weeks is nothing.
