    Nice going mate, might have to try again with my guide gun but, could never get the projectiles to stabilize at subsonic speeds.

    How quiet is it with the suppressor? I wasn't that impressed with mine. The .308 is much more quieter, mind you it's a smaller projectile...

    And how many grains of Trail Boss did you use with the Hornady 350s?

    Cheers

    i would have to say @craigc i am pleased with the DPT suppressors performance . . . starting out it was an unknown how much louder a sub .45 would be, the internet vids werent really helpful, certainly expected it to be more than a .30 caliber but thats all i knew.

    my velocity is low at 975fps so that will help, also lead needs less powder than jacketed bullets . . . also ordered an extra 3 baffles which did make a big difference, made the setup longer but i can live with that.

    keeping in mind the performance gain over the .30s with lead bullets its been a good move, so far it tips them over every time at any range i have tried.
    having the knowledge that the bullets will go the whole length of an animal at any angle, that it will smash thru anything in its path builds confidence in the setup . . . thats a good feeling when its time to pull the trigger.

    didn't do any more with the 350s . . . first groups didnt look hopeful so that was the end of that.
    whats your experience with the .45s been like so far ? a picture of your setup would be cool.


    last animal taken .. .
