Do any of you use silencers on your long range rigs?

I was wondering of any of you use them? I have 2 of them, one for .223 and another for .22 LR. In my opinion they make shooting more "fun" if that is possible.

Just curious...and if so which brand, and how have the results been? thanks...jon

Re: Do any of you use silencers on your long range rigs?

I have toyed with the idea from time to time. They reduce recoil almost as well as a good muzzle brake, and (obviously) are much quieter. Just yesterday I was shooting a friends SR-25 MK11 Mod 0 with supressor in place. Shooting 175gr Federal Gold medal ammo was almost as quiet as stardard velocity 22lr ammo. I was supprised to see a 60fps improvement with the supressor on. Precision was about the same, 1/2-3/4moa or so out to 300... the furthest we shot it with the can.
The big downer is that most, if not all states have laws restricting the use of supressors for hunting. Not exactly logical... but then again, not a lot of laws are.

that doesn't look like a long range rig?? very nice none the less... I have a AAC m4-2000 on my AR, I also have an AAC pilot that the paperwork just got approved, and waiting for the mailman...wish I new how to post pics. guess I'll have to learn.
...they do definatly keep muzzle rise way down, and love the noise reduction......dang that sonic boom though!!
thanks for the posts.....anyone else??
