I really enjoyed the process of building/assembling a Form 1 suppressor except the 1 year wait for my stamp. I learned a lot, and am very happy with the end product.

How does suppressor affect rifle performance?

This is a three shot group at 50 yards per with Sig 125 OTM ammo. I normally shoot Barnes, but couldn't find any before my hunt. So to answer your question, the suppressor doesn't appear to have any affect on the guns performance. I still need to zero at 100 yards, but only had time to zero at 50. From an 8.5" SBR I'll take this type of groups. I didn't have the best rest while zeroing, so I think the gun is capable of a little better performance.

30 caliber suppressor and 300 BO rifle. Next on the agenda is installing an adjustable gas block. I don't have a decibel meter, but to the ear this can is quieter than my factory built 30 cal can. I went with a Titanium tube and all but two of the baffles are titanium. Much lighter than my all steel factory can as well.

A 6.8 SBR is next on the list. I like the 300, but I love the 6.8. I have a 16" 6.8 now, but will gat a 10-11" version soon.
