If so, what are you using to space your QD Mount? Spacers or the jam nut? I tried the jam nut and my POI shifted up 4” at 50yds. I’ve had the same suppressor shift down 2”, but never up.. The groups were significantly tighter with the suppressor

Interested in this as well

Maybe try a different jam-nut? I can see that part not being particularly concentric. I've also been on the look out for a can solution (though I'm loving my tiny Faxon fork-brake) so I'll be paying attention

I'd use the jam nut, but you could probably just let the mount index off the muzzle face instead.

I have a YHM Turbo on mine and I use the factory jam nut. POI shift was less than 1" at 50 yards IIRC. I had to use the jam nut because the barrel threads are about 1/4" longer than the threads on the brake.

My phantom mount ends up bottoming out about .14” away from the shoulder so I’m having a few cylindrical spacers made ranging .16/.2/.25 in length

I use a 7.62 SPECWAR on mine and see the same impact shift of about 8in at 100 yards. Dont remember weather i used jam nut or the washer though. Last time i shot it was end of last summer i think.

Same can on my 223 savage bolt gun i see a inch drop at 100yrds . Group size is not affected in either platform by the can though

Well if there is some truth to the theory that some of the accuracy issues seen in these guns stem from barrel harmonics (heavy factory brake on the end of a rather thin pencil barrel) then a can would seem to exacerbate that issue

How does the turbo sound on the rdb?

Thinking about picking one up.

I feel that my RDB is hearing safe with my Omega, but would like to dedicate that can to my home defense 300blk.

It suppresses great. I have it set up as my home defense rifle. It can be shot suppressed without much discomfort sans ear pro, even indoors. Outside it sounds a bit louder than an unsuppressed .22 shooting supersonic rounds.
