About 10 years ago I started thinking seriously about a sound suppressor. The normal things like kids, work, bills, etc.... kept the thought on the back burner. I started hand loading seriously about 8 years ago and in the process realized that economy would be in commonality of components. So I have not really standardized but moved in the direction of consolidating most of my rifles to shoot a 7.62 projectile.(ended up as a lucky decision with the 6.5 craze) Although I dearly love my .270 and will never part with it new(to me) rifles have been a Savage 10 FP-SR .308 win, model 70 300wsm, 300BO AR and a JM stamped Marlin 336 30-30. I already have 4 various 30-06 rifles and another .308. In my decision to get a suppressor I settled on a 7.62 rifle can because I have some options. After looking at a lot of different supressors locally and online I went with the Griffin Armament Recce 7 from the Silencershop.com. It seems to have a good combination of lower weight and length with good sound reduction. People also seem to like Griffin's taper mount. I put it in jail today and hope to report back with a range report in a year or so. Its hard to see your new toy but know you can't have it for a year but totally worth it.
