    ASE UTRA Cans

    Has anyone used a SL5i on a 7mm Mag or SAUM?

    The box says 30 cal non mag but i have a couple of mates that use them on their SAUM's with no problems.

    Anyone have any firsthand experience with them?

    Cheers.

    The SL5 and SL5i may be fine on magnum calibres.

    However as we cannot always control how and on what weapon & barrel length the suppressors are used, we usually opt for the safe side.

    An example with regards to the SL7i .30 calibre model, as we were in the product update process towards the i-models in late 2016, we tested the lightened SL7i .30 calibre model quite heavily with a shorter 20 barrel .300 Win Mag.

    A few shots, ok. In longer firing strings, there was some minimal bending on the first baffles, which may not have affected the use.

    However as we cannot always control how and on what weapon & barrel length the suppressors are used, we usually opt for the safe side.

    Going back to the SL5 and SL5i, in magnum calibres they are getting nearer or above 140 dB at the shooters ear, a threshold we would not wish to go over.

    Best Regards!
