I got an AR-10 in .308 that Iím wanting to get a suppressor for. Itís got a 20Ē threaded barrel. From what Iíve heard the shorter barrels are better. Will I be ok? Iíd sure hate to sell it to get another.

Good to go. Shorter barrels are handier, but 20Ē will work just fine.

Be sure you have an adjustable gas block for the AR-10

Look up “Pew Science” Jay has a breakdown of most high end suppressors helping you decide what can is best for you

Adjustable gas block is a must.

I had an 18Ē barrel that I just swapped for a 16Ē barrel to shed some weight.

I have the Silencerco hybrid that I really enjoy simply because I can swap it between so many rifles. Definitely do your research.

Not sure if this will be your first, but Iím waiting on my first out of jail. It will be nearly impossible to get the rifle hearing safe due to ďport popĒ basically the gas escaping the chamber is extremely loud.

If you dont have another bolt rifle to run it on the suppressor may be a big let down on an AR-10.

I am hoping to have mine in before deer season but it will be closez

Eh I ran my nomad on a 16” AR10 in 243. My buddy runs a 16” 308. It’s plenty hearing safe. Lots of shots go off killing pigs at night.

Don’t go cheap. My only suggestion. Lots of opinions on brands. Lots of bad info given on TBH about gun stuff. Heck there’s folks giving suppressor advice that don’t even own one . I’m not arguing about any of it. Do your research. But know that you’ll be pleased if you buy a quality can.

Default can

look at the length of the can before you buy...most people would recommend a 7" can for a 308...A 5" can would not provide as significant noise reduction for a short barrelled 308 in my opinion...but call the folks at TBAC...Thunderbeast...they can make a recommendation
if you go with their muzzle break system you can swap a 30cal can around very easily on multiple rifles provided they are not larger than .308 caliber...you just need to buy the particular muzzle attachment for the thread pitch and caliber
back to your question...if you plan to hunt in a blind or tight quarters I would second the recommendation for a 16" barrel
16 + 7" can means you will still have 23" total length on your AR10
a 20" is gonna be long...but if all you plan to do is long range target stuff then keep the 20", but its gonna be LONNNNGGGGG

federal 100gr SP out of a 16" barrel will go around 2400fps at the muzzle and have about 1284ft/lbs of energy ... not to mention a bunch of excess powder burn into the can

243 needs longer barrels to perform 22-24 is a good spot to start..

you're better off shooting a ar15 in 7.62x39 ... federal fusion 123
2368fp/s 1531 energy ..

makes no sense to use this caliber in an ar10 platform ... 308 would spank it all day at 16" too..

Almost every post of yours that I see continues to prove your lack of knowledge on anything firearms related.

Nobodyís building a 16Ē rifle to be a speed demon. Lol

Velocity is a trade off for the easier maneuverability of a short rifle, no matter what caliber youíre dealing with. Trust me, a 95 grain bullet going ~2600fps will still kill deer/pigs just fine. Iím sure Matt killed plenty with that rifle.

Iíve killed a few hundred pigs and several deer with a 12.5Ē 6.5 Grendel SBR, and a 16Ē .243 is going to have more power than it does.

actual data on chopping a 308 inch by inch ... 243 will be considerably worse ..https://rifleshooter.com/2014/12/308...ty-28-to-16-5/

what do you know .. found to for 243 too ..

308 lost 22.8fps per inch chopped ..
243 lost 42.3fps per inch chopped ..

168gr 308 out of 16" gun has 1000ft/lbs of energy more than a 100gr 243 out of a 16" gun...

but you can read the article yourselves ... you're the experts ... i'm done with this nonsense..

I know how barrel length/velocity works, bud.

Nobody said that .243 was the best caliber for the application, but it will certainly do the job.

Like I said in my previous post, the point of a shorter barrel is to make your rifle more maneuverable (especially important when you add a 7Ē suppressor on the endĒ. Velocity loss is the trade-off to gain that handiness.

I use an AAC SND-6 on my AR-10. Itís heavy but built like a TANK! It is hearing safe, and it can roll around in the bed of my truck and I donít have to worry about it. My TBAC ultra 7 probly has the best sound and itís the lightest, but $$$.

yall act like experts ... spend more time on suppressor forums and less time acting like gun experts on a bowhunting forum ...

you could pick many calibers in ar15 size gun that will outperform a 16" 243 in an ar10 .. and probably be lighter too , and easier to tune and easier on cans .. and quieter ...

i have a remington 700 243 , i had it threaded full length and added an adapter back to it so i could use my 308 can as there was not enough barrel meat to thread it 5/8x24 to begin with for that exact reason ... you cut it and it's not a 243 any more ...

you can talk crap about my videos all you want I do it for fun ... but everything i said on this thread is true and can be verified by any expert ..

and yall acting like experts are misleading this poor guy who thinks you know what you're talking about ... read the articles i linked and you'll see for yourselves you're full of it!

putting a can with the least back pressure over an adjustable gas block is the best thing you can do in an ar10 or ever ar 15 , because it means the gun will run with and without the can on .. get a high back pressure can and as soon as you get it gassed correctly to run suppressed it just won't run without a can any more...

on another note , Savin yours .. you're correct on the SDN6 , i used mine on my ar10 and it's a good can , it even sounds good with no big back pressure issue on my 10.5" 7.62x39 .. old design but still a good performer.

Where did Raider say anything false? Of course a 16” 243 doesn’t live up to the full potential of the caliber, but a 300 BO is even more useless. All that matters is the person that owns it enjoys it. You tend to forget that energy isn’t the only important factor. Speed is equally important. You can have the exact same energy from a slower heavier bullet and a lighter faster bullet, and I will still take the lighter faster bullet 9 times out of 10. A 100 gr interlock will expand way more reliably at 2600 FPS than a 110 Vmax at 2100. Not only that, but it’ll have better trajectory, which will make it easier to shoot by being more forgiving.

I guarantee you that 16” 243 has killed more hogs in a 6 week period than all 5 of us put together will in a year, and we won’t even get started on dogs. It’s not meant to be some hot rod, but it’s effective for its purposes. At the time it was built you could buy $11 a box federal blue box soft points all day long, which was the main reasoning for it. Like I said it doesn’t have to be the best at anything. It just has to be effective for its purpose, which it is.

all i'm saying is picking a 16" ar10 in 243 makes no sense

16" 100gr 243 2488fps. remington core lokt .356bc 1366ft/lbs energy at muzzle. 200 yards ... 2069ft/s 951ft/lbs 8.85inches drop

16" 168gr 308 2466fps remington .475 bc 2289 ft/lbs energy at muzzle
200 yards 2150ft/s 1724 energy. 9.02 inches drop

why go ar 10 platform 16" 243 , when grendel or 6.8 would outperform it in an ar15 16" gun ... and run better...

and if you stick to 308 , the drops are almost identical to 200. and almost double the energy... and it gets worse the further you go ...

the data is the data ... and opinions are opinions ... and i drop pigs with 22lr too , that's not the point ... but wanna be experts that build 16" 243 and claim low back pressure cans don't suppress well are just talking out their ash...

it's just not true.. blast chamber design baffle design can volume and other factors have everything to do with back pressure , and it doesn't mean they don't suppress well ...

i never argued 243 kills good ... it's been my go to caliber for years !

but mis-stating the facts is misstating the facts ... and ballistic calculators don't lie...

i stand by what i said .. his statement about cans is wrong ..

and making a 16" ar10 in 243 is a very poor choice ..

peace... out!

yup ... WAAAAYYYYYY better. ... blasting 100ft/lbs at 200 yards .. at the muzzle the blk. has more energy ... but lower bc ...

so thanks for proving this point ... that 16" 243 is actually LESS power than a 300 blk by 23ft/lbs!

200 yards 2150ft/s 1724 energy. 9.02 inches drop

why go ar 10 platform 16" 243 , when grendel or 6.8 would outperform it in an ar15 16" gun ... and run better...

and if you stick to 308 , the drops are almost identical to 200. and almost double the energy... and it gets worse the further you go ...

the data is the data ... and opinions are opinions ... and i drop pigs with 22lr too , that's not the point ... but wanna be experts that build 16" 243 and claim low back pressure cans don't suppress well are just talking out their ash...

it's just not true.. blast chamber design baffle design can volume and other factors have everything to do with back pressure , and it doesn't mean they don't suppress well ...

i never argued 243 kills good ... it's been my go to caliber for years !

but mis-stating the facts is misstating the facts ... and ballistic calculators don't lie...

i stand by what i said .. his statement about cans is wrong ..

and making a 16" ar10 in 243 is a very poor choice ..

peace... out!
Neither myself nor Raider has mentioned a single thing about back pressure effecting suppression. Trophy did, and neither one of us are backing up that stupid statement so whatís your point? Biden said Afghanistan is safe, but that makes no Fn difference in this conversation.

There hasnít been a sole that said a 16Ē 243 is efficient or bada**, so you can drop your facts. The only thing we have said is it is effective for the purpose it was serving. And 308 sucks too itís all opinion

you're right Rubi .. i should have been more specific ... only point i was trying to make is the backpressure comment was inaccurate ..

and when it turned into the bad *** 16" 243 ... i just found it amusing too as the specs and performance out of a 16" are almost identical to the 300blk they say suck so bad ..

hard to keep up with who said what ...

so .. low back pressure cans don't necessarily suck
and 16" 243 = 300blk performance ...

that's all i'm saying!

Come on Anthony, you know you don’t know anything about guns, suppressors, or killing animals, and numbers on paper ALWAYS correlate to real world performance.

It’s obvious that all of Imyomama’s “experience” is based off crap he reads online instead of first hand experience.

Not sure why he keeps trying to prove us wrong on the whole back pressure idea when we haven’t even mentioned it at all. I’m figuring Matt was referring to OSS cans in his comment about low back pressure cans not suppressing well, which I would agree with. However, you can’t lump all suppressors with lower back pressure into that category.

Iím 16Ē platforms I can see that being the case. Personally the only reason I would own a 300 BO is in a short barreled application, which a 16Ē 243 would seriously outperform. Speed kills. 2600 vs 2100-2200 out of a 8-10Ē black is a big difference. Iíve only ran 6-9Ē 300 Black Outs and sold my last in 2014. I wasnít happy with the performance once the novelty of subs wore off. I never have tried a 16Ē 300. At that point Iíd rather be shooting a Grendel. Same can be said for the 16Ē 243. I donít have any desire for one, but I know why the one in comment was bought and how well it has performed. Itís OLD though, and Iíd be willing to bet heíd do it differently now, but I also know that itís done everything asked of it and then some. But F toting that thing across a field at night

just for you , i'll do a video on my suppressed 243

using the slow burning imr 4350 with 95 grain ballistic tip. great combo!

i'd do a video on my 300blk's.. got 5 of them .. roll my own on those too and it's my go to thermal gun with my trijicon reap-ir.
but 300blk suck at pretty much everything ... so i won't bother.

yes i am mis-speaking ... 300blk suck ... 23ft/lbs more energy .. but .308 vs .243 ... .065 of an inch going slower is what makes it kill better and the other one total crap ...

got it!

i've been on silencertalk for over a decade .. maybe longer than tbh even ... even though that site kind of died off now... it used to be the place to go to get suppressor info and talk to actual people who work for manufacturers ...

that's how i bought all my cans , sbr's and F/A over the years ...

i have my own place where i shoot on my private 700 yards gun range ... i do my own load developments and build my own rifles ...

so yeah i give my opinion... and it's all it is ... but sorry i can't take someone seriously when the specific caliber / barrel combo they use actually has lesser performance than the ones they call crap ... it's a fact , not my opinion.

run any chrono / ballistic calculator you want... the result is the same .. the laws of physics are no different on my gun range than yours .

LOL I should have elaborated on the back pressure comment. Yes there are very good cans that suppress very well while contributing to lower back pressure. A lot of the guys (OSS being the big one) that claim low back pressure is because they suppress like hammered ****. So yes. My statement as I posted it originally was misleading. Apologies for that OP.

That 16Ē 243 wasnít built for speed. I have plenty of rifles built for speed. If you want to have a **** measuring contest with rifle quality and ballistics then letís do it. And Iím not talking about reading from a stupid article. Iím talking actual rifles I OWN and have a ton of rounds down range with. Quality rifles. Not a 300 blackout and certainly not a Ruger precision lmao. Nobody here started talking **** until you did. Remember that.

Correct about OSS. I fixed my back pressure statement. Iíll admit how it originally reads is misleading and not accurate. I sometimes forget to elaborate. I need to do so for folks like imyomama that gather info online LOL

you made a blanket statement ... not me. i never mentioned oss .

and your 16" 243 has just about the exact same numbers on speed and energy as the 300blk you call crap ... so by deduction.. it also is crap! sorry if that offends you .. the numbers don't lie

but you are correct on me not owning a 16" 243 ... my suppressed 243 stayed at it's factory length. i added an adapter to get it to 5/8 - 24 ..

i own one and I knew better...

Lmao. Youíre making assumptions on those numbers. I never ended up loading for it like planned. I shoot an 18Ē grendel at hogs. My 300 blk SBR is a 9Ē. Iíve owned it a long time. Running a full length 300 blk doesnít make much sense. It was designed on a 9Ē. That 243 was bought as is to shoot hogs with 95 grain SSTs. That will handily outrun a blackout. Iím not talking out my ***. Iíve seen what both do in the field. And Iím telling you for a fact that a 243 at 16Ē outruns a 9Ē 300 blackout with ease. Even a 16Ē blackout. 243 has substantially higher case capacity than the 300 blackout. While also shooting lighter bullets. Fully aware of burn rates. Run Varget or H4350 in the 243 and itíll walk all over a blackout.

his new barrel doesn't shoot as consistent as his factory barrel did.

but i guess now you're an expert at that too, rpr's are trash ?? you're not cool unless you dump $5k on a custom chassis gun ?

unless you have a gunsmith buddy who can swap barrels for you , the rpr is the most economical competitive gun out there you can swap out barrels yourself and it's plenty accurate to keep up with most people in your class ...

bergara's are nice, but $500 every time you wear out a barrel is not appealing to me

i only have 2 RPR's (308 and 260) but i'd love to get one in 223 and another in 243 ... got tons of 6mm bullets ..

buddy of mine has it in 6 creed and other buddy in 338 lapua ... (not a fan)

so again i'm talking out of my *** .. you must have one too knowing they're trash .. please share your experience!

what rifle matches do you go to , i'll have my buddy i shoot with check your stats... wait are you EriK Cortina, do I owe you an apology ?

LOL!
