I have a 6.5 Creedmore built by Jon Beanland I am wanting to put a suppressor on. I know the Thunderbeast 30P-1 is used by more PRS competitors than any other. I really like the looks of the Ultra 7 as well. What are some other suppressors in this category I should be looking at as well? Thunderbeast is about the top of the budget. This is the rifle it is going on:

Two things to look at aside from price.

Weight of the suppressor. The heavier the suppressor the more it will affect barrel harmonics. Making a load that shoots 1/2 MOA unsupressed, may start shooting 1 1/2 MOA supressed. Change in harmonics. In this scenario you would have ro build a whole new load for the suppressed rifle.

Next factor to look at is decible reduction. Does it make the rifle hearing safe? Not all of them do.

I have a Tigershark and it is fairly heavy @ 26 ounces. But it is 300 Win Mag rated. Everything is a trade off.

nice stick!
have a custom 6.5 being built as well..

Thunderbeast or Crux

I have a lot of time on both and own the latter.
Really can't go wrong either way.

They make 3 sizes, 6" (Nemesis30), 7.5" (Ark30) and 9" (Archangel)
the smallest is the lightest with the Archangel being the quietest.

I have one of each and have another Nemsis30 and an Ark30 coming.
My Archangel is direct thread with the others having the PMS system.

JEC Customs makes a brake for them that works very well as both a brake and a precision mount.

You can even get the Nemesis30 full auto and SBR rated, not bad for a 10 oz can.

The amazing thing is that they all hit to the same POA.
That's crazy to me..

I have a guy wanting to make me a deal on an Ark30, at good price. I just don't know that much about them. Thunderbeast I know, and SAS as well. Does the Ark30 compare well with them?

I sure wish someone could guarantee me that a Harvester would work for this kind of application.....

Seems like a good choice to buy and leave it on a precision rifle... lightweight (11oz), should be decent sound suppression, and VERY affordable. I would not be worried about it not holding up to high round count for this type application. I just cannot find any feedback on POI shift/general affects on accuracy

The Omega is another one I was looking at for the Creedmoor.

If you can get a good deal on the ARK30 jump on it.

as a comparison my Shark is 16oz and is rated for all non-magnum short action calibers...... it used to be ~14.8oz but David updated the blast baffle and rear thread cap......

I own 2 Crux/Templar Tactical suppressors, one being a Archangel and the other an Ark30 and I am happy with both. The Archangel is quieter but a little bigger, like FiremanJG said everything is a trade off
