    Hi Zak and others.

    I already own a Surefire SOCOM 762-RC that shares double duty on my bolt guns, SR25 ECC, and 300 blk SBR.

    I'm debating about picking up a 338BA that would be used mainly on a 260 Remington (I don't own a 338 yet). Would it be a waste using the 338 to shoot 260 remington/300 RUM? I am just worried it won't suppress as well as your 30BA due to the larger bore size.

    I.e ( will the 338BA suppress smaller caliber bullets as well as the 30BA (with the obvious penalty of added length and weight)?

    The larger suppressor typically suppresses as well or better than the smaller one.

    Thanks for the fast reply Zak
    I was just worried about the larger bore allowing to much gas to escape.
