    Sweet rig, and perfect for mid-range varmint sniping. I got a can (aac ranger) a few years back just for hearing protection on my 16" bushy when calling coyotes. I tried it in the P-dog towns when the pups come up, boy did it make a big difference there. It really helps keep the enviroment sterile, it also takes alot of self discipline to keep from over heating the barrel, even on my .223 encore.:D

    took it out yesterday put 32 rounds though it.. various loads, from 40gr to 75Amax.
    the 40's put 5 in under a dime, the 75's were under a nickel @ 100... with the suppressor on

    need to tune it at 200 and lap the barrel
