    Just had a DPT put on my 300 Win, muzzle blast and recoil a lot more pleasant.

    got the Hardy magnum suppressor on the 338 lapua mag . Big , but does a good job of reducing the noise . But the rifle being very lightweight for a 338 still kicks like a donkey though ....

    Ok , cost not a problem, quality i would hope is pretty good across most the main players hardy, dpt, gunworks, or any others.. i won't be taget shooting with it just hunting so not alot of rounds going down range, would that count for longevity? is support here in nz a problem? Gotta hope there all pretty reasonable. Hopefully that narrows it down abit, light weight would be good

    A Tec is second to none in NZ. Quieter than all here, better made, better mounting solution and smarter design.
    Only downside is they are 15cm forward.
