Eric: One is a .30 caliber that will work on most calibers down to .223. The other is for a .22 rimfire.I have threaded barrels on a 308,6.5 Grendel,and .223s.The main gun for it to be used on though will be a 300 Blackout shooting subsonic ammo that is in the works.The .22 rimfire wil go on a threaded barrel 10-22 I have.

Sounds like you’re about to have a nice mobile pig hunting rig. What’s the barrel length gonna be on the Blackout? Also, any idea on the cleaning frenquency increase you might incur with the can?

A friend got one and was using it the first time this last weekend
He got a 30 caliber and is using it on 300 win mag and a 260 Remington

Both rifles went from shooting.5 groups to shooting 2"-3" groups.
Took the  suppressor off and the 300 still wouldn't shoot until the tread protector was put on, than back to .5 group

Both are #4 barrels.
Is that normal?

DW: I am going  for a 16.5 inch barrel.There should be no cleaning increase due to the can that I am aware. Rimfire ammunition is very dirty and it is suggested you clean the can at least every 300 shots. Recommendations are for a can that can be easily taken apart and cleaned easily for the rimfires. As is the one I selected.

Mike: That is not the Norm from my limited experiences and research. I will be able to address it better when I get mine and start playing with them. Do you know what brand-model your friend has?

To .257: A suppressor should not make a huge difference such as groups going from .5" to 2-3". The barrel harmonics must be some really weird stuff and I'm not doubting it happens. With a #4 barrel it is even stranger. I have a 9.3x62mm Mauser that prints 3" lower with the muzzle brake off compared to with it on.

eford: the 300 shoots good with a muscle brake or without and the tread protector on
Will not shoot with the  suppressor or without the tread protector

Roger: no l don't know which one it is and he back to work in the oil field. I will ask when he is back in few days

I can maybe see a  suppressor changing a free floated barrel, but a tread protector making a difference 😜

Not suggesting anybody do this without a stamp (fed jail time can't be fun), but oil filters make effective, dirt cheap suppressors. Here's one of a zillion videos showing it.

I'm no gunsmith or expert shooter of any sort but from my reading mostly on this site would taking off thread protector or adding a suppressor change the crown?
I heard you guys talking about damage to barrel crowns cause problems.

They should have no effect on the crown at all.

You will really like the suppressor.
I run one on my AR 10 and you can really go to work on pigs with it.

Roger,

Please keep me posted on the status of your suppressor.  I bought one for my .17 HMR and I can barely tell the difference of shooting a round with or without the suppressor.  I understand the physics behind a suppressor but I thought it would be much more quiet. 

Anyway, I just bought the suppressor because I could and for no other reason. 

I've been off of this site for quite a while but I hope to be a more frequent contributor.  I'm glad to see that you are still around.  You always had a positive effect/comment on any topic.
