    ASE suppressor vs Hushpower

    Can anyone throw some light on which suppressor would be better on a 30-06 please? I have heard a lot of good stuff about ASE Utra but not sure about Hush power over barrel suppressors. Any information would be really helpful.

    I would suggest paying $2 and buying this article:
    https://www.rodandrifle.co.nz/store/...ssor_Test.html

    Can't remember if it had hushpower in there specifically but it definitely had ASE and has info on weight, length and noise reduction of a bunch of suppressors.

    ASE are good - a scandi design - being euro made they have all the sound measurements done
    Used one on a 243 for ages

    Threads not straight on the suppressor or the rifle though?

    Know of a couple issues with threads not being cut square causing issues with ase utra suppressor as they seem to have a tight tolerance.

    Ase are quiet but heavy, not sure about the newer series though, meant to be lighter. No experience with hush power.

    Is your plan for hunting or target shooting etc?

    The ASE Utra is pretty much indestructible unless it's on a GPMG or similar.

    I've got a .30cal one I could be willing to part with.

    The smallest and lightest option from our models for .30-06 Win is the SL5i.

    S Series SL5i sound suppressor | Ase Utra

    To our knowledge it is the smallest suppressor on the market that brings the dB level below the EU threshold of 137 dB at the shooters ear.

    Its size vs. performance ratio is one of the best on the market.

    Basically at 340 grams, it is in the weight range of aluminium suppressors but with the long term durability of stainless steel.

    If you would like more suppression, then either the SL7i or the jet-Z COMPACT are good options.

    S Series SL7i sound suppressor | Ase Utra

    jet-Z COMPACT | Ase Utra

    All of them are very robust with a fully welded design.

    Best Regards!

    Don't let the fact he's Mr ASE put you off that it might be all selling spiel, they're very robust and very quiet.

    I've owned the sl5,sl7 and the rimfire versions and you will not kill one.

    ASE suppressor vs Hushpower

    Yeah utra suppressors are awesome, just not for ultralight rifles but everything else they are great, very compact.

    Guncity (who sold the suppressor) tried to blame it on the rifle thread also, that rifle had run another suppresor for years and is now running another one fine. Definately the suppresor thread...

    Gun city set up a rifle/scope for a friend of a friend. He went to shoot it and the bolt wouldn’t even close due to a mount screw, hahaha. Top notch service from real professionals.

    looks like an inaccurate 270?
