Default Suppressor 7mm-08

Looking for anyone who has put a suppressor on a 7mm-08, I just bought a Ruger compact 7mm-08 for my son and considering adding this.


Just staring my research, already talked to one guy that sets up the trust and sells the suppressors. He is telling me I could use this on my .270, AR, and the 7mm-08.


looking for first hand knowledge


How Quiet does it really get?
What about recoil, ?


Any other info you think would be important?
thanks

Recoil will be the same out of a bolt gun. I wouldn't expect it to be "hearing safe", it will probably quiet it down to a similar dB level as a suppressed .308 Win. It would be cool to have for hunting applications where you would only be firing a single shot. But on the other hand it will be the rifle less maneuverable and heavier.

I shoot a 260 Remington with a Dead Air Sandman S for hunting. It is quieter than without, but with that said since it is usually just one shot the suppressor is not as effective due to being cold and having to fill the chambers with gas initially. Any subsequent shots would be much quieter. I shot a deer last year with it with, my BIL was over a ridge 200 yds away and he said when I shot he almost jumped out of his treestand and then turned around and said it was quiet enough that he heard the bullet strike the deer. Just my observation after hunting one season using it. You only live once go for it!
CT Contender is right it is more cumbersome and heavy on the barrel.

thanks for the input, according to the guy I would be buying from he claims it would be hearing safe. I don't know that is why I am doing some research. Total cost with all the paper work is going to be around $1,400.00. And this can would be able to go on different guns I already have. Would love to hear from someone that has a similar set up. Watch a few youtube videos and some where impressive and others did not seem worth it.

I don't use HP when shooting my guns suppressed. My AR is ungodly loud without, but with it people can stand around and have a conversation while it being shot. I chose the DA Sandman due to the quick detach system they are using. It is considered one of if not the best QD on the market at this time. It was just over $1200 with the stamp

Tam,

Kenny is a great guy and won't steer you wrong. My first 3 cans came from him.

For a few shots HP probably isn't necessary but if you're going to be shooting quite a bit put on the muffs. Unless you're shooting subsonic, the supersonic crack will exceed the hearing safe dB level.

if you don't mind can you tell me a little more about the ones you bought?


what type of guns are they on?
what type of noise reduction are you getting?
Does it help with the recoil?
Did it do anything to the accuracy of the gun?
How hard are they to keep clean?


And you are correct in thinking it was Kenny I am talking with. I may set up an appointment soon to go get this on order.


if you have any pics I would love to see them


thanks

My silencerco suppressor includes a muzzle break so the recoil is reduced by some cans.

I dont think it works like that, just simple physics. But, the added weight of a suppressor does help a little with recoil, also you are slowing the exiting gasses some so there is a little decrease in felt recoil.

Muzzle breaks work by redirecting some of the exiting gasses up (or out) and back so that it counteracts the bullet leaving the gun, if the suppressor is on then the redirection of the gasses is negated. So, the muzzle break does nothing when a suppressor is in place.

Silencerco Harvester cans have a true muzzle break.

true, I forgot about those. I was thinking about the muzzle break being on the barrel and having a QD. I had this argument with a buddy that thought the muzzle break would still work inside the suppressor to reduce recoil.

I assumed you forgot the Harvester has the unique brake design. It helps a little on the 5.56.

The best muzzle brake in the world can only help a little on 5.56, there is little to help.

You'll never get a 7mm-08 hearing safe. It'll be more comfortable to shoot once without ear protection but if you've got a deer on the business end you rarely really feel the affects of the shot snyways.
