I am stuck between these two cans, Thunder beast 223 Ultra 7 and Crux Saxon. I will only be using the can on my Remington R15 223 for predator hunting. Any suggestions would help. Thanks

Easy- Crux! The technology of hydrodynamics Curtis put into designing his baffle system is amazing.

I've seen 2 Thunder Beast cans separate. Not a fan of them.

Agree with Chad on the Crux.

Heavily biased here as they area Texas company and two Texas companies have given them good marks.

How about the bad batch of Crux suppressors that went out and had to be fixed?

Thunder beast is the more proven brand. They are active on a few forums, answer emails and calls promptly. They are also very proactive whenit comes to problems.

I have considered Crux a few times but the lack of distribution and reviews worries me. I do own one Ultra 9 and have a 338BA that will get upgraded for free. Or I can have it destroyed and a totally new model sent to me, just gotta pay tax stamp.

That said I will probably own a Crux someday as none of their new stuff has had any bad reviews, but lack of good ones makes me wait.

Prompt CS & support is highly underrated. There are too many good companies out there to do business with mediocre organizations. Try this: call up both companies and ask a dumb question or two. Buy from the one who handles it best. If they're both great, then buy two suppressors, one from each. If you think about it long enough, you'll realize that you really do need that second suppressor.

I don't recommend them because them are a Texas company, I recommend them because it's a great product. I own Crux suppressors along with Silencerco, YHM and AAC but I have used many suppressors including Thunder Beast. The Crux is my favorite.

I LOVE my CRUX cans. Have two more coming.
No welds to fail either.

nice
My 6.5 will be ready shortly, will be running my Nemesis30 most likely on it.
I have one with the PMS mount and an Archangel direct thread.
I have another Nemesis30 PMS and an Ark30 PMS enroute.

Might need to get a dedicated 6.5 can next!

Here's something I have heard from 2 seperate guys doing long range shoots..
One at 1200 yards and one at the SHOT show 1 mile shoot.

Both said the same thing.

Curtis had them make hits then told them to loosen the can a bit and shoot again.
Both guys were like "uh... no.." well, they did and both connected.
Had em do it a bit more.. "uh..., well, OK" HIT!

THAT is impressive
