    With SilencerCo Saker and Hybrid with quick connect, I'm not seeing any noticeable shifts of poi, at least in hunting. Had a buddy that used the screw on method and had to sight in every time. Rounds used include 308, 5.56 and 458. In case it helps...

    Thanks Badger...I did not know that and will investigate this some more. I don't have one yet and there are things like that to consider.

    No problem. I certainly don’t want to discourage you from getting suppressors, just sharing my experience and OPINIONS. If you get the chance, shoot someone else’s and continue to ask questions. Again, I love my 22s and don’t know how I ever got along without them. I LIKE my 300. It has real utility. I’m not impressed with my 5.56. Especially for the money.

    Also, I know a company that could probably sell you a 300 upper.

    I run a Thunderbeast Ultra 7 30 cal on my 300BO which it is adjusted for and then on my bolt guns ranging from a 300 RUM and on down. This is a very versatile setup, but thunderbeast is a thread on design, either direct or onto their brake which mates via a tapered cone. The taper lock is great for accuracy/repeatability but I do run into seizing issues with the 300bo if I don't crack it loose when I am done. This is easily avoided by putting anti-seize on the CB mount but something to keep in mind. The beast cans are light and do well at suppression at the ear but the 300 is still noisy to you, short barrel, loud action.

    Handguns, Rugged Obsidian 45. It's huge in full size mode, nice in K. Really quiet, I keep it on my Sig 320 which will stack bullets with it and being a Left thread is nice so it doesn't back off. This can will walk off if you have it on a Right threaded barrel, I would purposely only load about 10 in a mag and retighten after. I contacted Rugged and then sent me new, "redesigned" o-rings. I'll be honest I haven't tested it.

    22 can is a huntertown arms thread on. The tax stamp was more than the can but they are great. You may dissassemble to clean, rated for FA 5.7 which was a big deal when I picked it up. Most were only rated to 22 mag, which is fine but I had been entertaining adding a 5.7 to the lineup so it was comforting I guess.

    I agree getting a dedicated suppressor is ideal, for reasons mentioned but for noise suppression (extra couple DB of suppression with a matching caliber can). IE a 6.5 suppressor is going to be quieter than a 30 cal on a 6.5 rifle. But if you can only have one, it has to be 30 cal.

    Dead Air Sandman Ti. I got it for my bolt guns and its light weight. Mostly shoot 300 BO ... but it will do a magnum load. It's direct thread, which is not everyone's cup o' tea. I can put it on my AR but don't enough to talk about it. If I decide I wanna do that more often I'll get something else.

    My Hybrid 46 doesn't change impact on my 8" .300 but it did on my G19. Which makes sense since the can is bigger than the 19 lol.

    I bought two blem PSA enhanced trigger lowers and am waiting on uppers to come in stock...22LR and 7.62x39. Have the mags, etc. I have 6.5 Grendel and a couple 5.56's and the idea of a silencer with quick connects on the flash hiders is my thinking.

    Men who make it into their late 40s and take care of themselves (eat right, exercise, get plenty of sleep) will *probably* survive into their 80s, and be healthy and active into their late 70s.

    I was up in Leadville this weekend for their 10k, and the winner of the 70+ age group ran something like a 9:40 mile for 6.2 miles at an elevation of 10,000 feet. He beat me like a drum.

    And while he didn't have a powerlifter's body, he was relatively broad of chest and had visible musculature on his arms and shoulders.

    That could be you or me 20 years from now. I'm planning on it.

    20 years ago we were still in Fukuyama "end of history", and the twin towers were still part of the NYC skyline, liberal democracies had "won" over totalitarian regimes.

    Now we have a totalitarian crew in the Whitehouse, and have been playing pattycake with terrorists for 20 years.
