    Thanks for that bsmith, like stated above, brand new world for me, and won't know unless I ask! Really looking at the AAC 7.62 SD for my first one so far...

    The YHM Ti can actually gets pretty good marks for a budget Ti can. Silencerco and Liberty are top notch as is Gemtech, but some don't like them because of the "Gemtax" debacle from back in the day.

    I'd avoid AAC for the time being unless the dealer has both the can and all the muzzle devices you need in stock. AAC is having some serious customer service issues at the moment, plus they hosed some of their customers on their "Damn The Man" rebate promo. It has to do with their buyout by Remington, subsequent move and then alleged computer issues, but a lot of industry people feel they're milking the excuses at this point.

    I had pretty much settled on getting a Gemtech Sandstorm Ti can in the future for an all in one rifle can, accepting that I'd have to moderate my rate of fire on 5.56 AR's. Since then Dead Air has come out with the 7.62 Sandman-Ti. It's 0.4" longer than the Sandstorm and 3.5oz heavier, but it features a full Stellite core (no issue with higher 5.56 rates of fire), .300 Win Mag rated and comes in $275 cheaper. It's getting solid press and is now on my short list.

    YHM hasn't done anything new in a long time. Their stuff is pretty daggone heavy, too. The Harvester is light, but if you do any kind of rapid shooting, you better let it cool. Yes, I saw Silencer Shop's video. But, there are light cans on the market that are full auto rated. As I said earlier, the new Sig line looks good. And don't go cheap!

    I just bought the YHM Phantom Ti QD. Can't wait for it to get out of jail.

    I wish there was somewhere closer for me to actually lay my hands on some suppressors, closest places for me that I know of are Gene Sears or maybe Butch's in Woodward, and I do hate going to OKC if I don't have to...of course, I live in a county that doesn't have a red-yellow-green traffic light, and not sure if we even have a flashing red light LOL. Thanks for all the suggestions so far

    I'm looking at the differences between the Dead Air Sandman Ti, Silencerco Omega and AAC SDN right now, the DA and Omega are lighter for sure. As far as what this will get used for, it will be a combination of target shooting (mainly plinking, no match or precision shooting per se) and hunting, mainly for coyotes probably; and it will probably be used on rifles including a 22-250, 22-243, 243, 6.5-06 and 308 in bolt gun, as well as a 277 Wolverine in an AR platform (think 277 bullet in a 223 case), so no big magnums or anything...choices, choices :)

    I like what I've seen & read so far on the Sig silencers. Will you be stocking them once they ship?

    bsmith hit it. the AAC SD or if you want the solid thread on then look at the AAC cyclone. the cyclone is the same can but you get and extra baffle or two that the quick connect takes up on the SD. also, if you want to move it around from gun to gun then you have to buy their flash hider at around$60. and for sure visit with tommy at ssp. they will do your trust free of charge if you buy the can from them. you also have the option of putting the can on lay-away to ease the sticker shock

    I talked to Butch @ Butch's Guns in Woodward yesterday, and he said they sell a lot of the Silencerco Harvesters there, said the guys there that shoot bolt guns and hunt with them really love them

    The harvester isn't a good option if you are planning to use it on semi-auto rifles. It is a great option for a bolt action precision or hunting rifle. What is your main host going to be?
