This is something that I have personally enjoyed working on over the years. The perfect 300 blackout suppressor is one that has size, weight and sound performance at the forefront of the list of attributes that is has to have. So let’s take a look at my favorite 300 blackout suppressor.
The first and absolutely best 300 blackout suppressor that we know of it the Leonidas Gen 2 integrally suppressed AR15 upper. This is a personal pet project that has evolved into one of the very best suppressed 300 blackout rifles on the market in our opinion. We use titanium in the construction of the core, there is very specific geometry to prevent things like gas pinging that makes the silencer ring like a bell so to speak. We also have VERY caliber specific baffle geometry that is optimized for the subsonic variant of the cartridges that are on the market. This doesnt mean that you cant use supersonic rounds in the Leonidas, it will work great with those too, but to see the real magic, you need to shoot subsonic ammunition in it.
There are so many little nuanced things that have been done to this design over the years to improve it that I could probably write an entire book called ” The Ultimate 300 Blackout Suppressor “… Things like putting the gas block inside the silencer module allows us to capture leaking barrel pressure gas around the gas block as well as adding significant volume to the expansion chamber to lower to pressure of the gas column so the baffle stack can handle it easier. We also have improvements in barrel technology as well by using specifically designed barrels that have a tighter twist rate to help stabilize the heavy, subsonic bullets available today for this caliber.
