Happy second day of fall, suppressed shooters and thank you for joining us for TFB’s Silencer Saturday. Where steaming some milk for your pumpkin spiced latte is louder than most of our subsonic setups. With hunting season upon us, those who live in restriction-free areas can reach for their suppressed rifle of choice. For many hunters in the Eastern United States, a pistol caliber carbine with the right load can be a great choice for medium-sized game at distances up to 100 yards. But why pick 38Spc or 44Mag when you can pickup a bolt action 300BLK that will push balistically superior bullets at either supersonic or subsonic velocities? Similarly, is there a difference in decibel readings between 300BLK factory ammunition?
SILENCER SATURDAY #38: 38Spc Vs 300BLK
After last week’s episode, many of you requested decibel meter testing of the 300BLK loads out of a bolt action host. Great idea. I also thought it would be an interesting way to compare one of my favorite suppressed rifles with my new favorite cartridge – The Ruger 77/357 using 38Spc versus the Remington Model 7 in 300BLK.
A basic, but satisfying test of some of the quietest suppressed centerfire carbine ammo
