So we have a STW 7mm that has a threaded barrel w/ the factory brake on it. I'm considering using my Specwar 7.62 suppressor on it this next year. Are there any issues that anyone knows of suppressing this round? I've confirmed with Silencerco that the can will handle it, but what about the rifle?

Thanks in advance.

Won't hurt the rifle. I shoot a 7 Rem Mag with a compressed load of Retumbo and 180 gr Bergers, with a Tiger Shark suppressor. The rifle may not shoot as consistently with the suppressor as it did without due to the added weight hanging off the muzzle. May still shoot fine.

Thanks, the added weight was one factor I was worried about.
