Iíve got a omega in jail right now and it should come in any day I hope! Iím going to go ahead and start another one since Iím starting a trust with my wife. Itíll be for a 6.5 cm 300blkout 300wm. I was thinking the Q thunder chicken but no one I know has one just retailers pushing a brand. I bought the omega first so it would fit anything I had Iíve heard itís not the best so just wanted to see what first hand experiences any one on here has had. I know it needs to be rated for 30cal for when we both use the 300blkouts pig hunting.thats really only mandatory requirement I have.

I'm partial to my YHM Phantom 30. I've got 2 30cal suppressors and a 5.56 suppressor, I still run my YHM Phantom with QD mounts on all my rifles. It is Magnum and machine gun rated. Rated all the way down to 8" barrel on 300BLK supers and 10.5" for 556/308. Mine is the SS version and heavy, but it is a tank and is still my favorite suppressor. My buddy has a Phantom, but is the Ti model and the weight reduction is a big difference I wish I had gotten the Ti to begin with.

Also take a look at the YHM Nitro
Weight:........................18.2oz / 20.2 oz.
Diameter:.........................1.562Ē
Length:...........................6.93Ē/ 7.75Ē
Construction:..................17-4 Ph SS
Direct Thread:....................5/8-24
Decibel Rating:..................135 dB


7.62x51 / .308 Winchester: 10.5" minimum barrel with Q.D. muzzle brake, 16" minimum barrel with Q.D. flash hider.

5.56 NATO, 6.8SPC, 7.62x39: 10.5" minimum barrel with Q.D. muzzle brake, 16" minimum barrel with Q.D. flash hider.

.300 Win Mag / 300 RUM: 20" minimum barrel length with Q.D. muzzle brake or flash hider.

300 Blackout: 8" minimum barrel with Q.D. muzzle brake, 16" minimum barrel with Q.D. flash hider.

My top pick is a Crux (pronounced "Crow") out of Conroe, TX. The design on the baffle system inside is engineered to spread out the gases better than any suppressor on the market.

For price the YHM Resonator is a great option. Itís full auto rated, quiet, and very light. Itís basically the same weight as the TI version. Around $400 with a break mount.
Side by side the Resonator sound the same as my silencerCo Omega 300; both on 308 bolt action rifles. The Resonator is stays on my deer rifle.

If you really want to abuse something then get a Rugged or Dead Air; most people arenít hard enough on a can to need this level but if you want to do mag dump after mag dump or beltfed it can handle it.

I second Thunderbeast.
Not sure this means anything but a few weeks back when I was seeing some sales on Suppressors I checked with my TB dealer and he said they were pretty backlogged and he was waiting 6-8 weeks for a serial number. Sales must be good?

This is my first one, and do not have near the experience with them as you guys do. Only one I've ever shot was the Harvester, and it seemed nice to me. I'm sure looking forward to getting it I know that.

Know someone with a harvester and it is a great can. You will not really like that one.

Be careful because some require you to put on a disgusting mounting [censored] ( muzzle device). Some nice bolt guns look like crap with the [censored] dangling off

Thunderbeast is the gold standard for a reason. They are very repeatable, simple, and light weight. I've got an Ultra 5, and it has been just ridiculously nice to have over the years. It's very small, and only weighs like 8 ounces. It's been very effective on an 8" 300blk and 12.5" 6.8 SBR, as well as various 6.5 Creedmoor bolt actions with barrels from 16.5" to 24". The sound with every one of those rifles has been just about the same to me as the shooter. About like a 22 mag going off. It's not the quietest can in the world, but very capable of knocking the noise level down to where it's comfortable and I'm not causing myself any hearing damage. Shooting 40 rounds out by yourself at the rifle range? Yeah... probably a good idea to at least put in some earplugs. But out in the field, ZERO need for hearing protection. It's about as good as it gets for such a small can that doesn't get in the way.

I have tested a bunch of them from the Silencer Shop over the last 5 years...
In all honesty, there isn't THAT much difference in perceived loudness to the shooters ear assuming the same size can.
Shorter cans just aren't as quiet as longer ones, can't beat physics, more internal volume is always going work a bit better.

Having said that, most of the time out hunting I run my short cans.
Pigs or deer are impacted just the same....

Mounting type, repeatable, no POI shift, light weight and and short are my top priorities.

If I were to have to start over, I would get one titanium mid length 7-7.5" can with a taper mount.

My personal centerfire rifle cans are Crux, had two before they changed the name from Templar Tactical, then got two more.

Per me research last year, decibel reduction is pretty close among the makes and models I compared. The next step is which can is the smallest, and lightest. Not that I'm wealthy, but price didn't matter. It is one of the few items to purchase that will last all of your life. In the end, the winner per my spread sheet was Crux Ark Neo.

Agree, with a 12 month average wait, it's worth paying more to get what you really want. I'm about half way through my wait period for my Q Trash Panda.

may order a thunderbeast since they are the best

I should get my Omega 300 anytime near September 14th when I bought it.

BUT

I may get a .22 suppressor for my future VuDoo bolt

Question:
can you shoot a .22 through a .30 cal suppressor?

Better buy all you want now, they will soon be outlawed because of idiot lefties who still call them silencers

Life is too short to carry around heavy cans...

That's my opinion on the subject. I have a regular Shark suppressor, it's been a good one and David is awesome to work with. My next one will most likely be a Crux Niemisis, just haven't spent the cash on it yet.

For the money, the Harvester is hard to beat.

Yes as long as it is user serviceable because 22 is really dirty you'll need to clean the suppressor.

I have an Omega and a Harvester, and other than length, I might like the Harvester better (am very happy with both). I notice the price on the Harvester has continued to go up. When I originally bought mine I think I paid ~$450.

Funny, the only cans I've seen go down range with the bullet were Thunderbeast cans.
