Well, I finally got off my backside and set up a NFA trust. Submitting the paperwork for a SBR, so now time to get some suppressors...

Here is what I will be using/doing...

The SBR will most likely be an AAC 9" 300 blackout. Also, I have a 16" 300 BO and a 16" 6.8 SPC. These 2 are what we currently hog/coyote hunt with.

Will be shooting supers more often than not, assuming that I would have better performance? IDK

Was thinking about getting a couple of different cans/mounting systems and seeing what I liked. Leaning toward the AAC 762-SDN-6 and the Silencerco Saker 7.62

Also, I understand you may have some POI shift when adding a can.. So, do you just make a mental note of that, or should I resight my optics WITH the can on? The SBR most likely would always have a can on it, the 2 16" rifles, I havent decided, since I will prob be switching the can back and forth between the two..

Anything I am missing? Should look at?

Oh, forgot to mention, length and weight are higher priority than noise suppression. Especially when considering lugging around a 16" barrel with an additional 7 +/- inches on the end... That is why when the SBR comes in, it will be MINE and son gets to hump the other lmao..

Thanks for any advice!

If you will be shooting suppressed, zero the scope suppressed. Every one of my rifles has an impact shift when adding the suppressor. Also, the harmonics are completely changed, so a load that shoots well without the suppressor may not do well with the suppressor. My 6.5 Creedmoor was load developed without suppressor and shoots tiny, add the suppressor and it opens up a bit.

My 7mm-08 will only ever be shot suppressed, so I zeroed and did load development suppressed.

With length and weight being a high priority you should look at a Titanium suppressor. Crux has a short, medium and long can that is SBR rated. I would try to stay under 16oz.

I have a 762 SD and it's a good can but with the current ownership structure of aac I would steer clear. I'm really pleased with everything I have from SilencerCo.

I just ordered a SilencerCo 7.62 Specwar, which is the quietest of the SilencerCo models, but the heaviest and longest. If I remember correctly, I believe the Omega is the lightest, followed by the Saker. The Saker is 1.5" shorter than the Specwar and weighs 3 oz. less (due to it being titanium vs. the Specwar being steel), so it would be one to consider. Also, the Saker has a new lock collar (one turn and its locked) system, the Specwar has to be turned a few times before it locks into place. For approx. $200 less than the Saker, the Specwar fit my needs.

AAC is now part of the Freedom Group, they don't have a very good track record. That aside, I have the 51 tooth mounting system 7.62 SD, mfg about 2008. I have sent it back to AAC twice for repair of end cap strikes, due to the 51 tooth system allowing the can to "shoot loose". Both times AAC fixed it free of charge. The 51 T system is flawed, if I didn't already have the can and the AAC muzzle devices on about 8 rifles I would not be using anything AAC. Silencerco, has their stuff to together and they also figured out ways to correct the 51 T problems go that route.

Hmm.. Good info. I am not tied to getting an AAC by any means. Just thought if I get the AAC upper, it would already have the 51t flash hider... Ah well, as someone said in another post... Someone has to pump money into the economy lol...

This could get as bad as night vision addiction lol

My Templar Tactical/Crux cans exhibit almost no shift, it's straight down, about a 1/3" of an inch.

The Specwar comes with a flash hider/muzzle break that doubles as a mount so no worries there. Silencerco's customer service is not only top notch, so are their products. Super great people to deal with and I've yet to hear someone talking bad about them.
