Newbie ... thinkin' about it

Guys, Am about out of big monies to play with commercial suppressors. As I have much more time than money there might be a Form 1 build in the future. Conceivably could make three for the price of a commercial suppressor. Have some basic questions abt doing one though. Legal questions: 1) What is th...

Re: Different Caliber Suppressor

TimL, I'm a newbie ... but have been researching 9mm cans of late. Is very desirable to ask the manufacturer rather than guess. 9mm doesn't generate anywhere near as much pressure as the 5.56 round. In choosing the 9mm can I have on order I specifically asked if it was good to go with subsonic 300 B...

Re: Silencers on myth busters tonight

Was good. Wish they had taken it a bit deeper and broader. Would have been fun if they had sought the combination that really does give "hollywood quiet."

All in all, rather well done.

Need a 5/8x24 to 1/2x28 or 3 lug adapter

Similar problem to another thread except I'd like to mate a 300 BLK bbl with a 5/8x24 thread to a 9mm can that will be fitted with a 1/2x28 or a 3 lug. Where should I look for such an adapter?

Thanks guys!

Re: 308 VS 300 whisper

Am limited in the quality of optics (no mil dots) and eyesight any more. My .338 Win Mag does OK ... 2" groups at 300 yards and minute of elk to 400+ ... but the drop of a subsonic 300 WTF is pretty significant. Really is going to require someone that knows what the heck they're doing even if the ri...

Re: 308 VS 300 whisper

SRM, chuckle ... I think you're being optimistic with the 300 yards for subs in the 300 BLK (wtf). For most of us, it's probably really a 200 to 250 yards cartridge. But it still has it's place, so that doesn't dampen my enthusiasm for it! Patiently waiting for the Form 4 to clear for my 30 cal can ...

Re: "Range rods?"

So ... to do it correctly, would need to make a 0.308 rod with an 0.2995" shank long enough to align the rod to the bore. Is a job for the tool post grinder I don't have ... oh well. Anyone have an idea of what the common bore in a .308 caliber can actually is? There has to be some clearance. Thanks!

Guys, Is there a standard sized O1 drill rod that can be used for a "range rod" to check the alignment of a can when mounted on a barrel? Most interested in one for a .308 caliber Douglas SS barrel. Not sure what the bore diameter really is ... but obviously something like 0.300" Closest standard si...

Octane-9 and the 300 BLK???

I saw the previous post on ratings for the Octane-9. Did not understand the answer.

Is the Octane-9 HD going to be safely useable with subsonic 240 gr projectile loads for the 300 BLK?

Sure would appreciate the information!

Re: 2011 Suppressor Purchase Plans

Currently have a For4 in for 22 lr can; waiting for a 30 cal can to be Form 3'd to the dealer; and an Octane-9 HD to be delivered to the distributor. Probably all for the year. Maybe a 5.56 can next year.

Anti-seize?

I notice folks talking abt using anti-seize on threads and some parts of suppressors. Even noticed a warning abt using copper bearing anti-seize materials due to the possible creation of a galvanic cell which damages the metal of the suppressor.

Re: Baffle Erosion - is 6.8 SPC as bad as 5.56MM on short bb

Is supersonic 6.8 likely to do significant damage to a Ti can rated for 300 Win Mag?

If it occurs with volume of ammunition used, what might I expect the life of such a can to be?
