Re: end cap hole diameters.

The baffles in these are one-piece; no idea how they were made, but they are already "bored." The only holes I need to drill are through the end caps. So, 6/100 inch over bullet diameter? That sounds like a lot, but, OK. Thanx! Calibration point: 1960s Venerable Parker Hale MM1 .22 'Snorkel-suppres...

Re: Final Plea for Freedom

W.R., most informative post. Given this socialist 'blitzkrieg' on our Constitution, using our Constitution protections selectively against that sacred document and its import, a new order of thinking should be considered. The Maginot line was the old way of thinking quickly overrun with a new metaph...

Re: Twist for subsonic 5.7x28.

A thought about the use of 5.7x28mm v. 9mm v .45 for home defense . What are the Db values for the 3 above rounds? If one does not have a can to attenuate the sound in an actionable situation and if sound level about the same then 'old dinosaurs' prefer the 1911A1 if no can available. The having a p...

Re: Twist for subsonic 5.7x28.

I second the Good Captain's sage advice. In the literature the twist for the FN 5.7×28mm is 1:9 as stated. Like most guys who never read carefully I did not see the barrel length that you are considering. One calibration point is derived from the stellar Ray Brandes, no longer made, Bully Barrel for...
