    Would putting a suppressor on a .257 Weatherby be a bad idea?

    I know it's not extremely loud, but other than lowering the noise level, are there reasons to not do it? I've never put a suppressor on anything, so I'm just wondering what the pros and cons are of doing so.

    Thanks.

    cons waiting for paperwork, length, weight and poi shift

    pro's noise and recoil reduction.

    Buy a shark suppressor. The benefits of your suppressor will make your rifle a pleasure to shoo because there is no muzzle blast and reduced recoil.

    POI shift every time or just initially once the unit is installed?

    I really know nothing about them other than noise reduction...

    You should expect a POI change when you have it installed compaired to when you have it off. All three of my M110's have a 1 MOA change when mounting them; one shoots left, one high and one at 1:30 position.
    Lots of pros, but the cons usually stray people away. Like cost, dealing with the ATF, laws in individual states again hunting with them.

    I had seen the ATF stuff but hadn't thought about hunting laws... I'll check that out. Thanks.
