Default Anybody shoot suppressed Weatherby Mark V 300 Wthby?

Im considering investing in a Weatherby Mark V 300 Weatherby Magnum LH. I want to mate with a silencerco can. The armory says I need at least a 24 barrel for the harvester or omega. The new one Im considering has a no.3 fluted barrel already threaded from factory with a 26 barrel for $1900ish.

I really want to shoot the 300 Weatherby Magnum from a Weatherby...and surpressed...and kill some large critters.

Thank Yall for any down range suggestions and/or guidance.

God bless!

I’d do it if the can was rated to handle it

Im curious how much a can would quiet it down. Hard to tell just from a recording, but it sure seems to tame a 30-378. The guy says the suppressor eventually exploded a few weeks later so make sure the can you get is rated for 300 mag

I use an Omega on a 300wm. Significant reduction in sound and felt recoil.

No experience with the 300 Weatherby

The SiCo Omega is not rated for .300 WBY so you would have to go with the harvester in this instance, which is rated to .300 RUM. Another good option would be the TBAC Ultra 9, which is lighter than the Omega or Harvester and is also rated to .300 RUM.

I currently have an Omega on my 22" win mag and it shoots like a dream.

I have paperwork in on a Silencerco Asker 7.62 for my .300WM as well.

Hopefully, I'll have it by June and I'll let y'all know.

Shoot SiCo an email, they may say 26" is fine on the Omega. Either way, it is going to be long and hard to handle in a stand, but a dream to shoot suppressed.

I have shot .300WM to 16" 6.5PRC through my Omega with no issues. I do not have a Weatherby mag or I would try it for you.

I shoot 300 ultra mag through a YHM can and it helps a lot with both noise and recoil.

I was thinking of calling SilencerCo directly for double tapping saftey specs. Thanks for bringing this up. The armory said I was good with both.

Ive been super happy with the weight in the Harvester. Its impressive that the TBAC is lighter...I reckon the titanium facilitates that.

I had to turn my popup on a diagonal from the corn pile for my 54cal Lymans GPH smoke pole. I was gonna run some tape to see how much bigger the boom stick might be in comparison from the smoke pole.

I have a harvester and a left handed 300 WBY. Been scared to put it on that big gun. I let my son use it on a 6.5 and its awesome. Let me know what you find out from silencerco. As far as the 300 WBY goes the deer I've shot the last few years in south texas with it all go straight down. All behind the shoulder shots. Love the gun.

Super sweet! I got the green light from Weatherby and rep said many of them shoot suppressed. Sent an email off to SiCo.

I figure the rig would be around 57” long...which made me laugh...48.25” rifle and 8 3/4” suppressor. It wont fit in the Ameristep Bone Collector but likely the Barronetts popup...Ill measure and fit figure tomorrow. I made a mock up...with a BBgun, shop vac extension tube, pipe insulation and masking tape.

A finished weight should be around 10-10.5 lbs.

My mock up.

All my rifles get pipe foam installment on the comb as part of my skinny face and cheekbone solution to raise cheek weld and recoil management. Foreseeably the future rifle rig will recieve the same treatment. Eso si que es.

Silencer Co said that the Omega 300 and the Harvester 300 are rated to 300 Wthby down to a 24” barrel. The Omega is better suited for a higher rate of fire... “Higher” was defined as about 5 rounds a minute or more. I aint sending $15 down range per minute...no matter the caliber. Green light.

The 57” rig will work great on a Bog Pod in a Barronetts Big Mike with room to spare and good manuevering radius. Green light.

And Go.

Excellent info briar friar. Appreciate you finding that out. Will have to throw my harvester on the big gun this off-season. Now just need to get some more ammo for it...

While I completely dislike the Saker mounting system both the ASR and Trifecta they are EXTREMELY durable cans. You wont have any issues with it on a large magnum 30. Personally Id either rock it direct thread or buy a Dead Air Keymo for it. Both are MUCH better mounting systems.

This is good advice. I only have a harvester and a sparrow and both are direct thread. Really like them although I mainly use the harvester for hunting.
