Wow!! I'm surprised on so many levels but kudos to you on manning up to a MAJOR mistake on your part. Your not the only one who's had a moment as I know I have!

As for the damage to the can, who knows, there may be structural damage internally that you can't see but for someone to fire multiple rounds through a can like you did, I'd sure like to know what brand it is because its VERY WELL built!!! Lots of cans it only takes one baffle strike and ugly things happen!

So the "suppressor" place had the rifle and the wrong can for 10 months and said everything was fine? Only accuracy issue I have had with my direct thread(2), was using a thread(custom S.S.) adapter between muzzle thread and suppressor threads to save time moving can between two different size threaded barrels. Will not do that again.

At least you figured out what the problem was. It is good you didn't get hurt. I was really confused why your groups opened up so much.

I thought I knew what suppressor I had but it says plain as day 6.5. I can’t see any baffle strikes or damage of any kind to it. So now I will find my 308 suppressor and see how it groups.

I’m going call manufacturer and tell them what I have done. Without seeing any damage did I ruin this suppressor?


That is the most honest statement I have ever read on the internet. I still have some hope for humanity.
