What is it with us not making the 6.5 creedmoor suppressed with a dedicated muzzle suppressor? Well let’s take a small look at why.
When we started working on our newest rifle designs like the Sovereign and the Agent, we wanted to make them work as good as possible on as many calibers as possible right out of the chute. This meant testing them on a host of different guns over time and seeing what the numbers say on the sound meter.
What we learned out the 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform is that we need to be able to make it work on other calibers as well. You see, there really isn’t a huge demand for a dedicated 6.5 creed moor suppressor at this time. The PRS community uses them some but not extensively so we dont see a huge demand for a specialized version of a silencer just for this caliber. What we do see are people wanting a good 308 suppressor that they can also use on their 6.5 creedmoor.
Enter the Sovereign, with the titanium construction and the high pressure optimized baffle structure, these silencers work surprisingly well as a 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform. When we designed the baffles they were specifically designed to work with our muzzle brake so the rifle can be shot with a brake in places where the silencer cant be employed. Then simply screw the silencer over the brake to turn the brake into a sacrificial blast baffle of sorts for the silencer. The brake does two jobs this way and the end user benefits the whole time…
What we did for a 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform ultimately was to build a dedicated integral to be able to maximize the silencer for the 6.5 creedmoor and make it as small as possible to keep weight and size to a minimum for the hunter who is fielding the rifle all day. This project which is called the Whitetail is what we feel is the perfect deer rifle for 99% of north american big game.
So ultimately, you have to decide which path is right for you in your silencer journey, do you need a suppressor for a PRS rifle that you will also want to use on your hunting rig or will it only be the hunting rifle and this one will get lots of use? We can help you sort out these questions and much more, so if you need some help with your journey, dont hesitate to give us a call! Until next time, keep your powder dry!
