Anyone with 300 Whisper experience?

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Anyone with 300 Whisper experience?

Post by Tugnut » Thu May 19, 2005 3:38 am

I have a .30 cal muzzle can, and I'm thinking of doing up a 300 Whisper. I can't decide between a bolt gun or an AR15 upper. I'm leaning toward an upper by http://www.ar15barrels.com. I'm thinking of mostly shooting heavy subsonics with pretty fast powders like AA#5, but I'm not sure if they will cycle the action.

Any insights or experience?

Thanks for the link. That's a nice website, but there is very little suppressor info there.

I fired a .500 Whisper and it was delightful.

Which suppressor and which gun? How was the sound signature compared to more commonly encountered suppressed guns?

It was a Remington 700 style gun with a one-off suppressor. Seemed very quite to me. A lot quieter than the M16 I was shooting with an XXX Warrior the same day.

O.K. about to show my ignorance: :oops:

That is a One-Off suppressor.

You mean One of a kind?

I mean someone made it for that gun. I would say home-made, except he was a licensed manufacturer (but otherwise does not sell a line of cans).
