Default Hunting suppressor

Looking for a .308 hunting suppressor and something I can drop on smaller calibers with a quick change too.

If it doesn't break the bank that would be a bonus as well.

What are some of your favorites out there?

Default Hunting suppressor

Silencerco Omega is super versatile due to modular design and can be direct thread or QD, Q Trash Panda is lightweight enough that it will be right at home on any gun and it uses a very lightweight thread-over brake.

I have used the Elite Iron Bravo 1 successfully on game with .300 Blackout and .308 Win. rifles.

I have also used it on prairie dogs with a .223.

It is all stainless steel, and uses a brake adapter.

Default Hunting suppressor

I suppose any suppressor can be used for hunting, but for minimal POI shift and comfortable carrying it on a long hunt, lightweight is probably the biggest priority.

Bravo 1- 24.6oz
Omega - 14.0 oz, +- depending on configuration.
Trash Panda - 11.8 oz.

Almost a pound extra at the end of a hunting profile barrel will be very noticeable both in POI change and when carrying it.

I wouldn’t worry about the POI shift — zero the rifle with the suppressor on and then shoot it with the suppressor on.

I like the idea of a QD because some of the threaded cans I have now will loosen up sometime when I am shooting them this seems like it could change POI every time you tighten it.

I am planning on putting this on a Christensen arms precision rifle in 6.5 creed or Christensen Arms Ridgeline in 6.5 also.

This is a very good point too.. Be sure to take a few sight in shots when hunting...

I was also looking at a Gemtech Tracker anyone have experience with it?

Or a Griffin Sportsman Ultra Light 300

Default Omega for me

Just got my stamp back yesterday. Went with an FDE one. Using some well machined titanium end caps and direct thread adapters my Omega comes in right at 12 ounces. The real bonus is how well this suppressor does what it is designed to do, cut down on noise pollution.

I'll suggest the Suppressed Armament Arbiter. Rated to 300 RUM. It's titanium, so pretty lightweight. Made right here in Reno too.

Give Tim a call.
