Re: Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

The can has 6 baffles, with the clip holes oriented every 2 hours around the clock from the barrel end to the supp end when re-assembled. I missed this part. Staggering clips like this will destroy accuracy and make a wobbly bullet wobblier. It will be quieter, though. Line the clips up, or leave f...

Re: Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

the ELD-X is a hunting bullet - its a completely new bullet. so you're correct that its very much a different animal than the old amax. however, hornady does not show a 123gr ELD-X bullet on their website @ .264. there's a 123gr SST (#26173) and the 123gr ELD-M (#26176). the only ELD-X bullet i see...

Re: Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

I’m not known for sugar coating things, so here goes. In all honesty, you have set yourself up for failure, and chasing your tail in a never ending circle. You have a suppressor of questionable manufacture. Give it a chance before you start modifying it. You have a bullet that any one who has tried...

Re: Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

Add to the list from John A, extrememly low velocity and a powder that does funny things with low density loads. Not uncommon for that powder to have velocity swings of 100 fps. Your estimate of low 800, high 700 is correct in the 10”barrel. No good reason to be that slow and plenty reason not to. ...

Re: Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

Two different rifles, two different results. No surprise there. As the others have suggested make sure the bore of the can is aligned with the bore of the barrel, it may be fine on the Ruger and not on the AR. That would make the most sense from the photo. Hard to say from the photo and the target ...

Form 1 can doing strange things.....180 Rain Wedge CFEBLK

First post, Hello everyone. The same Form 1 can (6 conical flat faced baffles +1.5" expansion chamber before first baffle/clipped bore holes; 2x8" total size; bore dia. : .376 (3/8")) is causing a decent increase in accuracy in my RARR bolt gun and a HUUUUGGGGGEEEEE loss in accuracy in my 10.5" AR,p...
