Thinking about getting a dedicated can for my 6.5 Creedmoor -- wanting a 6.5 mm can. It is currently sharing a TBAC Ultra 7 30 cal. with a couple other guns and I like it a lot. Looking at their 6.5 mm can. Any other recommendations?

Never buy a suppressor smaller than .30 cal.


Unless its for a .22lr.

Same here. My buddy has about a dozen cans but uses his two 30 cal cans almost exclusively. I only have 30 cal and 22 rimfire wouldn't think of getting anything in between.

Buying a 6.5 mm can means it'll run 6.5 mm and smaller, nothing larger. And you'll knock of so little decibels you probably would have to have a meter to tell.

Yes, Sensei. I see your point.

And just to add, some cans have caliber-specific end caps that can greatly improve the performance of a suppressor. I don't think anyone is making a 6.5 endcap at the moment, but I'd be surprised if manufacturers like Silencerco don't start manufacturing them specifically to capture a little more market share among shooters.

If you can afford to have a specialty suppressor why not? I have 2 30s and 1 338 so I went ahead and bought a 6.5 for fun.

They are a little quite but not by much.

I pretty much agree with what JG said on staying with 30 cal. I bought three 30 cal cans before I bought anything else. Then I bought a Specwar 556K just to keep on my little 223 permanently.

However, a friend of mine has a Barricade that is a dedicated 6.5 can. If (big if) I was going to buy a 6.5 can, that would be it.

I actually have the Barricade and like it along with a 223 from SAS but would not recommend an SAS to anyone due to their online shenanigans on the forums.

I know there are caps for the 30 cal SilncerCo Harvestor that are 6.5 mm. You can switch them out. I have 8 30 cal Harvestor(s) riding on 308s, 6.8s and 223. I have 1 223 cap but i am not sure if I could tell you the difference between the 30 cap or the 223 on a 223.

Silencerco Omega has both a 5.56 and a 7.62 end cap. There may be others available now, particularly with the Hybrid handling up to .46.

Hmmm, I was not aware of that. I just knew that when I saw it I was pretty impressed with the mount and the sound of the can.
