    Having seen the Ultra5 in person, I was not impressed with the suppression. I wouldn't want to shoot one without ear-pro for more than a mag. Def didn't seem hearing safe. I run a SiCO Omega and it's way quieter than the U5.

    Nzrob,

    FYSA, there's an entire forum dedicated for suppressors >>> https://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/suppressors.136/

    I have an Eliteiron Bravo on my .30 LARA and it is rated for .300 RUM and very pleased with it; most of my rifles are threaded for 5/8-24 so I can also use them on .300 RUM and smaller.

    Did a Harvester vs Omega shoot out to see which was quieter. The Harvester won. I called Silencerco and asked why? Since they sell the Omega as the lightest, quietest, full auto rated sup on the market. They said I was shooting lighter faster bullets in the Omega. They were right.

    TBAC Ultra 9 and 338 Ultra. I have the Ultra 9 on my 6.5 x 284 awesome combo. Works awesome on my 300 RUM as well.

    While I had Silencerco on the line I ask if a direct mount was queiter than a ASR mount(their muzzle brake quick attachment). They said the ASR was quieter and a much quicker attachment.

    the ASRa dn brake/flash hider causes more turbulence in the beginning, so I would agree with that. Also, it ends up being a little longer, so that's gotta help too. I have tried both and the ASR is quieter and I haven't noticed any real accuracy difference between the two when you tune the load correctly.

    I had my heart set for the Harvester 300 until I saw and fired the Eliteiron.

    SiCo Omega, don't hunt without one in MT since it became legal. Also used a SDN6.
