    One of our guys took our 30cal suppressor to Shooter's World to do some test fire. His goal was to be in/out in 15min max. 2 hours later, he left. Damn near everyone there was so impressed with our can, they all wanted to hear it and shoot it! I like that kind of feedback!

    If you have a Swiss screw, that could be a possibility. If not, let me know what type of CNCs you have and I will get with my partner and you guys can talk about future projects.

    Time for a ignorant question. The 30cal can... so will it work with 300, 30-06 and 30-30? Not that I would do a can on a 30-30 but just trying to see how this works...

    That's a great question! A suppressor can accommodate smaller cartridges. There may be a slight loss in effectiveness, but it will work.

    Example: A suppressor designed to withstand 300 Win Mag can handle any .308" and 7.62mm bullet diameter. This would include the 30-06, .308win, 30-30 Winchester, 7.62x39, 7.62 Nato, 300 Whisper, 300 Blackout, and so on. It can also handle smaller diameter bullets like 223/5.56, 22MAG, 17HMR, and so on. With the smaller diameter bullet, you can still effectively suppress it, but it won't be as quiet as a suppressor built specifically for the .22/5.56 caliber.

    Bob, if you have a threaded barrel and a good quantity of ammo, I will let you break-in/field test our next suppressor.

    Thanks for the info! I dont have anything with a threaded barrel but I may be able to get my hands on a .308 that is threaded and I have a few 100 rounds of that.
