Re: buffer weight for quietest db at the ear?

My ear damage was pretty much all from shooting guns. Mostly did not have adequate hearing protection. I have hearing loss, tinnitus in both ears that never stops and a condition called hyperacusis, which makes everyday sounds seem too loud. I always thought worse case scenario was that I could pote...

Re: buffer weight for quietest db at the ear?

Thanks for the responses. I'm aware of the silent buffer setups and had actually planned on getting the armaspec stealth recoil spring. I know it's not as adjustable as the JP but the price difference is significant. I'm just not sure what weight I should run on the armaspec with an adjustable gas b...

buffer weight for quietest db at the ear?

Its been a while since I have posted, but I have severely damaged ears and all of my past posts have largely been about trying to setup the quietest 300 blk upper. I just got a good price on 16 inch 300 blk upper with a pistol length gas system. I may be changing that to a carbine length gas system ...

Re: Need input on Gun Safe, specifically Stack On brand

Gun safes can be very deceiving. All the ones at big box stores can easily be defeated. All these safes are actually rated as residential security containers by UL ratings. The word "safe" is more of a marketing term. The door will be the strongest and the whole body of the safe will generally be th...

absolute quietest factory load currently available

I researched this topic a lot, but still learn of new options all the time. I just ordered some Hush 220 gr and also some gemtech 208 gr. Anybody have much experience with these, or have any suggestions for anything quieter? I'm not concerned about match grade accuracy, just want the quietest factor...

Re: Savage Arms

Well, I loaded up a few rounds tonight with 8.1gr n-110 and 190 nosler custom comps. Shot two over the Chrono to check velocity, running about 1000 fps. Second shot of the actual group had a light primer strike so I ended up with only a four shot group. Must need to adjust my sizing die a little. T...

Re: Savage Arms

I just bought one of these yesterday. My stock is exactly how you describe, just about touching on the right side of the barrel. Mine, however, has something odd with the finish on the stock. Just handling the rifle scratches the black finish on the stock. I'm not one to get overly upset over minor ...

Re: large volume 300 blk cans - DB @ the ear

Thanks for the reply. Those are all good points. I only shoot outside and in a open area with the least amount of trees around me and on soft ground. Shooting over snow is interesting. I've gotten a chance to since I got my suppressors, but I'm guessing when you shot over snow, it was even quieter?

large volume 300 blk cans - DB @ the ear

It's been a while since I've been on here. Most of my posts have always been about achieving maximum suppression (DB @the ear). I have severely damaged ears, 24 hr a day tinnitus, severe hearing sensitivity and hearing loss. I now spend most of my days shooting a .22 bolt gun with a dead air mask an...

Re: Which should I choose? BCM 300 blk barrel length upper

[quote If I wanted to put something together for commercial ammo to be as quiet as possible, it would be 10”+ with carbine gas length and adjustable gas block. This will give the powder more time to burn and reduce the internal pressures as much as possible before the bullet exits and the port opens...
