So I am in the market for a can for the XCR. I currently have 5.56 and 6.8 with more coming. I would like to be able to supress the 2 of them along with the .308 when it comes out. Is it unrealistic to get a can that can handle all of them or would I be better off buying 2 different cans (i would think .308 and 5.56). THanks guys.

I was looking into buying a can from Ron Smith (Smith Ent) at one point. He forwarded me on to someone else who was supposed to take care of the can order processing. I was just wanting technical info, trying to decide between models.

That fellow said that the best thing to do was to buy a 308 can, then run it on the 223. It wouldn't be quite as good, but that I wouldn't be able to hear the difference.

Note: this is what I was TOLD, not what I know from first-hand experience.

I do note that the YHM suppressors are designed so that you can run a 308 can on a 223, but not vice versa obviously. Might give them a call and ask......

Go to silencertalk.com. There's numerous reports of running a .30 caliber can on smaller calibers successfully.

From what I've read and been told by those whom know more about suppressors than yours truly (which includes everyone but our French Bulldog), a 308 suppressor will work fine for all three calibers. The only catch is that you'll be running a significantly heavier suppressor on your 5.56 than you otherwise would.

Just my 2 cents,

Well, that is what I have come to understand. I think I will just get caliber specific that way I can own more...

That's my plan.
Most likely one for 5.56, then one shared b/t 6.5, 6.8, and 7.62.
Alternately, one can have a 5.56 suppressor bore out for 6.5 or 6.8 (whichever you're shooting) to use for said caliber and 5.56. Then have a second one for 7.62.

I think it will depend on how much I find myself being able to shoot 6.5 or 6.8

From an engineering perspective, you'd be better getting the larger can and using it on the smaller calibers than boring out a smaller can for two reasons. First the smaller can will have a smaller volume to dissipate the energy (sound). And, second, the smaller can may no be able to withstand the higher pressure from the larger rounds.

There's some experts on www.silencertalk.com including factory representatives that give better advice.

The problem with these items is that you can't just get one, after your first you'll what one for everything you own.
I shot 556 through the yankee hill 308 can on my sbr and it sound real good but its heavy. I've got a AAC spr can on my XCR and that shoulds good and lighter but alot more money.
Any of the major brands swr,aac,yankee,knights are good its a matter of finding the balance of cost, weight and db reduction that suites you. I think yankee hill for the price and construction is the top values out there.

How much barrel does the SPR require? Is that the one that i can't use on a SBR? I think I ill probably just get a M4-2000 for 5.56 and then get a .308 can for 6.8 and .308.

I think you need at least 2 inches of barrel in front of the gas block? the cost is about $1100.
If your not going to shoot alot of full auto i'd get the m4-1000 about $300 less than the 2000.

My dealer just let me know my XWR Omega .30 can is in - Woo Hoo! Now it's paperwork time.


FYI, the Omega is a 30 caliber can with 5/8x24tpi. I'm planning it primarily for my DSA FAL but with proper thread adaptors plan to try it on my 300 Weatherby, 7.62x39XCR, 5.56XCR, and 7mm08 Encore.

I have Advanced Armament M4-2000 Mod 8, AAC Ranger, AAC Pilot. LOVE THEM ALL

I'm also considering a Gemtech G5 and quite possibly a multi-platform Trinity for handguns through Roy over at Aussie Arms...

According to Silencer Talk:

The following states allow ownership of silencers: AL, AR, AK, AZ, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IN, KY, LA, ME, MD, MS, MT, NE, ND, NV, NH, NM, [glow=red,2,300]NC[/glow], OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WV, WI, and WY.

Check with any local SOT holder and they can advise you as to what your State will actually allow.

I looked at the Advanced Armament site and they list the following dealers in North Carolina, so one may presume silenced weapons for you is a simple phone call away:

Personal Defense Handgun Safety Center Inc. Raleigh NC (919) 779-6880

Class Two Enterprises, Belmont NC (704) 827-5566

Gunners Choice Outfitters, Dunn NC (910) 892-0909

J&E Firearms, Shawboro NC (252) 202-1393

Top Gun, Shelby NC (704) 616-0310

Good luck!
