Re: SSG 260 carry rifle

Went out and shot my suppressor on my 260. Checked my ES. I got 2940, 2936, 2940, and 2936. You can't wish for anything closer. It didn't have much recoil to begin with, but I don't think there is any anymore. It sounded a little louder than a 22 rimfire. My POI shifted 4.25" down. I guess you would expect that when you hang that much weight at the end of the barrel. I checked and the barrel still had clearance. Sure makes it easy for calculating when I have the suppressor on. 4.25 extra up and you have it.

Re: SSG 260 carry rifle

bilpelt, the first time I shot my .308 suppressed in competition, it really changed the handling characteristics of my rifle. It's outstanding shooting off a stable platform, but when I perform standing, kneeling or sitting shots, the rifle's balance is off, which is difficult to compensate for, at least for me. I thought that I could just go out and shoot a competition with out practice and everything would stay the same, it didn't. I still have not perfected it, just that added weight on the end on the barrel made a big difference in balancing the rifle. I need to get in a lot more practice, before I compete again.

I've also noticed some of the guys went from suppessor's to muzzle breaks. However, shooting next to these guys with their blasts can be tough at times, although, I may get a muzzle break in addition to using the suppressor, just to try it.

From all the research that I've done on suppressor's, and I am by no means an expert, your POI shift seems about the norm for a suppressed rifle. I use a Thunderbeast and a Surefire and I am right about where you're at, as far as shift is concerned with both brands.
