Re: I want to build a Whisper gun need a few ideas

try this link 300 whisper

and this one

I think this is the guy who invented the whisper more stuff

I've been looking into this alot also. I'm going to demo the gun in the link at top on Sun, and that will be my first time shooting/hearing a 300 whisper. Needless to say, I'm excited.

hope those links help. quiet info

Without a doubt, the best upcoming new round for subsonic is the 338 Spectre. 300 grain Matchkings!
Teppu Jutsu

Now factory loaded by Reeds Ammo.

Has the ability to move up the horsepower scale with supersonic loads too.

ssk makes a 338 wisper and a 50 wisper.
I would neck up a 30br to 338 and go with it for the 300 smk for a sub round. you can get redding componets to make the dies easily and it is not a propietary cartridge.

you also need to take in consideration twist rates for the 300 smk at sub speeds. Pac Nor makes an 7 twist in 338 that should stabilize the 338's

build on a remington 700

d-a


carbonman

do you know what the parent case is?

Re: I want to build a Whisper gun need a few ideas

I agree with d-a, I am building a 338 Whisper on a 700 for a customer right now. HS box mag assy, integeraly suppressed, takedown, scout scoped, & set up for the 300's. This takedown system with a scout scope will allow for takedown and replacement with no loss of zero unlike most return to zero mounts. But in answer to your question 338 Whisper, M700 and your chosen optics.

Re: I want to build a Whisper gun need a few ideas

does anyone know how the accuracy is with the subsonic 338 whisper? ooohhhhhhh, Shawn how much for the integral whisper?(unless that info is personal, then nevermind)
that sounds like an awesome setup...I'm trying to decide what to get also.
