    Thanks wildrose and iclimb. I'm glad you enjoyed the article. Yes we are very concerned with supporting continued growth of the sport including bringing up the next generation. Ron and I managed to help my son get his first buck this year as we'll, very exciting as a father

    The suppressor was made by thunderbeast, it's an excellent can! There is a difference in point of impact from the can that varies depending on the weight/profile of the barrel. On my 7wsm it was about 2 moa. On my mtu contoured match barrel it was less than 1 moa. The accuracy tends to be better when using the can. We did extensive testing to make sure there were no issues with the first few shots one the suppressor was reinstalled. The very first shot was right on every time... We were very pleased as some cans require several shots before consistency can be achieved.
