    I am getting a suppressor for my Savage 116 6.5x284 with 24” barrel or my Browning A Bolt .280 with 22” barrel. The barrel diameter of the savage is .575”. The barrel diameter of the browning is .600”. I talked with Thunderbeast and they said to send guns to them and they will put proprietary thread adapter on. My question is both guns shoot exceptional and I don’t want to hurt the accuracy, Will this work?
    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for bringing this up. I was told the same thing by other manufacturers but never really understood why.

    Thunderbeast has chopped and threaded several barrels for me. Its a bit of drive for me to get there, but I like having them do the work since I know it will be done right. And if they say it can be threaded, then I know it can. Several of mine have been in that diameter range and both shot the same or better after getting suppressed.

    And if you are worried about it, send just 1 up there to get done. The 2nd will be sent shortly is my bet.
