Re: 300 whisper

If you go with the AR route, I prefer the pistol length gas system with an adjustable block. The whisper is capable of a WIDE range of bullet selection and speeds so one fixed gas port size is just not the best way to go. Make sure you get an 8 twist barrel if your going to shoot the heavy bullets subsonic. If you are going SBR you can get a long blank and make one 16" and one 10" out of the same blank.

Dillon makes a trimmer motor that mounts on top of a die with a vacuum attachment to pull all the shavings away. It takes about 5 seconds to turn a 223 case into a whisper case thats ready to load.

They are really fun to shoot even if your not going the suppressed route.

Re: 300 whisper

Just saw this thread.... I got my AR barrel from Model 1 sales and was much less expensive. On the other hand, you get what toy pay for too. I bought it for the quiet dispatch of pests four and two legged (this world has gone crazy) as well as the occasional supersonic load for deer. OH? Did I mention it's very competitive at the local carbine matches too? EOTech with a Magnifier
