I'lll be starting right after x-mas as our deer season will end just prior. 44 mag will kill them dead and sometimes they come real close sometimes not based on where we are. You're welcome to use my stuff to shoot em. I just like having someone to go with. Don't care if I shoot another one as long as I have someone to call for.

It is the 30. in the booklet its says 30/300mag. I don't believe it's intended to be on a Mag though.

So the 30 will work on the .270 as well as a 30-06? Or do they put smaller baffles in the 30 for a .270?

They do make one for the 6.8 SPC (.277 cal) but the fella told me this was better for my set up and from what I can tell it will work fine for what I want out of it(which is to keep from scaring neighbors) up to a 30-06 case. As to how quiet this thing really is, I'll report in the near future.

Re: 5 and 1/2 months and it's finally here!!

Well Kevin got it threaded on yesterday. It's not as quiet as Hollywood would have you believe. It sounds a little like the crack of a 22 rimfire with an air leak. It also reduces recoil to the point a 5 year old girl can shoot it. The crack is obviously the sonoc crack of the bullet which I don't see a way around without loading subsonic ammo. You can easily shoot w/o ear protection. I don't see it attracting attention due to noise either so it will meet my needs. I do understand why people load subsonic ammo. They do to get rid of the crack which is the bulk of the noise made with the suppressor on the gun. If you eliminate the "crack" it would sound like an abrupt high pressure air leak.
