    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.

    It took my SIL about a year to get his stamp. RIDICULOUS!

    10-14 months has been the norm for some time. That's why the F1 world is hot right now, with eform 1 applications being approved in 3-5 weeks

    OP, I highly recommend that you get a .22 silencer next. I waited until my fourth (or fifth? Can’t remember off the top of my head) tax stamp to get a .22 can and I wish I’d gotten that one first. By far the most fun.

    I currently have one that has been incarcerated since June. My last one took over 500 days to be released.

    Congrats! I'm sure you realize it, but your Recce can be run on your .270 as well as all of your .30 cal rifles.

    The leading edge of approvals is running ~8 months now, approvals for early and mid May are currently being reported. I'm hoping I'll get approval on my 05/23 in the next few weeks, my last approval in Sept was right at 250 days, longest I've waited.

    Like other folks have said, I'd put a rimfire can on your list, they are too much fun.
