FWIW: Just picked up a set of Lightning 32dba hearing protectors. They have my old set of Silencio 71's beat 6 ways to Sunday. Lighter, more comfortable head band,and they knock the blast form the 300 Rum down to a low volume pop. No need to double pulg with the Lightnings, where I had to with the older set of Silencios. A little more pricey but worth the extra few bucks.IMHO. Burn lotsa powder!!!
