Re: Suppressor Info

If you are planning on getting one, I would do it soon. I have been waiting for 2.5months so far for paperwork. I am guessing another month or two wait still.

Re: Suppressor Info

I have one on a 6.5-284 and the 4 inch suppressor (out the front) gave me an additional ~20 fps. Hardly noticeable really. I was told this is because there is a small amount of free-bore boost with it on. POI moved, but accuracy was the same.

I said at a guess...maybe

Theory, well if we have say somewhere 20to50fps per inch barrel and
depending on baffle design maybe a total of 1/2" of straight over sized bore
where the gas pressure might give a bit of a shove.
That's where my guess came from.
