Default Which Suppressor

Ok, fixing to go down this road so I want to ask a question. I have been around some that were crazy quite, then others that sounded like they wasted their money.

I am looking for one for a ar 223. I want it as quite as possible. Got a serious pig and Coyote prob at ranch. Gonna start putting a dent in them whenever possible.

Probably the only gun it will ever be on unless this will also work on a 204 or 243? Looking for opinions from guys who already have them.

Buy a .30 cal can and you can put it on any gun up to 30 cal. I have an sas arbiter. A lot of the differences in sound is ammo not the suppressor. Sub sonic vs supersonic makes a big difference in sound suppression.

I have the Silencer Co Hybrid( run it on my 300 Blackout and 6.5 Grendel) and the Silencer Co Sparrow (for the kids 22)
Both great cans
The Hybrid is for up to a 30 cal I believe, but when I move it between guns I can change the end cap to better for the caliber Iím shooting vs other brands that have a fixed end cap.
And what has already been said, subsonic is awesome but not always available for every caliber
I shoot sub sonic 300 and 22 but my 6.5 does not have the option that I have seen

Get a 30 cal can. Most these days are all quiet. I bet the ones you say wasted money we’re shooting rounds that “cracked” the sound barrier or supersonic. If you want something quiet you gotta shoot them slow

I have the SilencerCo Omega 300 and love it. Bought it in a trust from Capitol Armory in Round Rock. I think they are running a special right now: if you buy a can you get your trust for free.

I did a BOGO and got a .22 can for free. It’s awesome with subsonic ammo!

I’ve got the SilencerCo Omega and the Hybrid for my rifles. Both seem to help greatly. I’ve got the sparrow too. It’s so quiet on the 22 it sounds like a stapler. Definitely uses subsonic ammo.

I got the Sig SRD762TI. IItes well made and lite due to TI construction.

We recently compared it to 5 different suppressors my buddy has, none of them sere cheap.

Shooting same 300BO with same Ammo only 1 of his had lower DB readings. And no, I donít remember which one.....

Hybrid is rated up to 45 cal. I shot one on a 350 legend bolt gun a couple of weeks ago and was disappointed in the level of suppression of that combo.

I’ve got a few sico cans, and have been looking at the Omega 36M sico released, mostly because I’ve been looking into a 9mm can, this one can do that and up to 338 Lapua as well.

For MAX sound suppression you want a calibre specific one... I'll be honest that is not the route I would go.

I would go 30 cal can so it fits almost all hunting guns...

For Pigs not JUST coyotes... I would prefer to get a bigger bullet but the 75 grain 556 would work too... Or you could go sub sonic... then it will REALLY be quiet

My brand suggestion would be Thunderbeast or DeadAir

Don’t do home made if you want quality.

Buy a 30 cal can. Dead air gets my vote. Silencerco is a close second.

Don’t expect an AR to be super quiet.

The bullet impact out of any gun at any speed is loud enough that others nearby will run. Be fast on the trigger.

This.

I have an aac sd6, .22 and just threw an omega in jail. That said, my buddy that owns a gun shop has 15 suppressors. He has gone to caliber specific. His crux 556 are just about as quiet with standard ammo as my 30 call is with subs.

Barrel length will matter as well. My 7.5" 223 is barely hearing safe with 55 grain sp. But on the ruger American its about like 22lr

This Omega 30 is sitting beside me now in the blind. I love it! Couple things, none are movie quite unless shooting slow subsonic ammo. The action racking on an AR is pretty loud. You are going to be able to shoot without hearing protection, but animals within 100-300 yards will still run when you shoot. But I can go from one field to field beside it and shoot.

For my first can I got a silencer Co hybrid 46 so I can run it on anything I want up to 46 caliber. The sell different end caps so you can restrict the hole size of the muzzle .223/.308 end caps. Seems like a win win to me.

I have AAC-SD 30 cal and .22 lr cans.
The AAC 30 cal is very heavy and makes a hunting rifle a little awkward to cary around.

Just recently got a Dakota Varminter 4.0 in 223. It is super light and have been very pleased with it.

I disagree with many of the recommendation above. I worry about sound, weight, length, then price when purchasing a suppressor. There are some heavy and long suppressors mentioned above. You dont want a long anchor at the end of your rifle. Especially if you plan on carry said rifle for any amount of time. Mitch let's talk this week and we'll go shoot some to see what you like.

So thatís reason to think poorly of them? Because they choose not to bow to the crown? I enjoy my freedom, or lack thereof. I abide by the BS rules, but I **** sure donít think negatively just because someone chooses to disobey the unconstitutional gun laws in this country. Now there are lots of poor life choices that go hand in hand with that at times though, and I will think negatively of them. But never just because they truly believe in the 2nd.

Never said I thought anyway of anyone. But to answer your question yes I do look down on people that dont follow the rules of society. I do my best to follow them myself. Have I sped? Sure. Have I gone an made illegal equipment, stole, murdered, etc? NO. I dont agree with the way suppressors are handled by the Govt but I dont break the law just because...and I do look down on them for not following.
