Re: #4 Buckshot is 'best'?

I carried OO Buck as LEO for 20 years, and have seen what it does to mammals, I could care less about "tests". Real life has shown me it works well. My Ithica 37 is always filled with OO, and the side saddle has 3 more of them and 2 slugs. Nobody is denying that 00 will mess up tissue. This anecdot...

Re: Suppressed subsonic caliber choice for hunting (deer/hog)

The salvo 12 sounds great, even with supers.

If he's "probably not gravitating toward a shotgun", he should reconsider:

Re: Booster on a fixed barrel

People say that the can will move slightly forward during firing due to the gases hitting the blast baffle. The spring then slams the silencer back to the rear. Since the barrel is rigid and the gun has so much inertia, this can cause damage to the threads on the barrel and piston when the can slams...

Re: .45ACP Can on .450 Bushmaster?

The obsidian 45 is 450 bushmaster rated.
The hybrid 46 is as well.

Dont assume a silencer is 450 bushmaster rated because of chamber or muzzle pressure. Powder charge weight plays an important role. 450 bushmaster has 5 times the powder as a 45 ACP

Re: 9x39 project

IMO, the entire point of 9x39 is if you want a quiet AK-ish gun. For an AR or a bolt gun, why not just use 300blk, 338 whisper, 350 legend, 458 socom, 510 whisper? An integral VSS or AK in 9x39 would be cool because they're iconic. A bolt gun in 9x39, not so much. K baffles kick ass for 9mm and 300b...

Re: 458 Socom - Lets Talk!

I have a reflex 450 bushmaster can with K baffles and I like it a lot. I've never shot the bowers 458, obsidian45, or hybrid46, so I don't know how they compare on 450BM.

I made my final skirt long and trimmed it until I had about 1/4 turn crush on the stack when tightening the endcap.

Yes, 0.036" is enough, especially since it is also supported by the tube.

Re: 300 Black Out Welded Can

Do tiny tack welds every 120° or 90° on each baffle and just don't let it get too hot. If you're rotating manually, you're gonna have start & stop points anyway unless you're a contortionist, so I'd do every 90°tacks and alternate welding opposite sides between them I had a coworker weld my 300blk ...

I have a feeling I will probably end up going with a symmetrical or asymmetrical clipping

Re: welded and riveted suppressor legally lengthen barrel?

Depending on the handguard, that can add a lot of weight. 17" handguards aren't usually designed for lightweight builds. Maybe a custom titanium handguard?
