Yeah, you can do it, but it's not ideal. It's heavier and longer than a dedicated 5.56 can.

We have several customers who have bought 7.62 cans and use them on their 5.56 guns. Saves them money and makes the can more versatile.

Rarely sell a 5.56 can for a 5.56 gun, most people go 30 cal. The only people that do it are those concerned with weight, or want to use exactly what they had in 'nam.

Safe, works well- usually within a few decibels of a 5.56 can.
Go 30 caliber if it is your first rifle silencer.

Yes.

On my guns that have one I still don't have to switch the gas block to the suppressor setting.

I can use my .30 can on my 5.56, can't use a .223 can on my .308. Choice is easy.

Try using AP rounds, that should open'er up

Works great. I run a YHM Phantom Ti 762 on my AR. I expected it would be noticeably louder than my buddy's AAC M4-2000 556 but I think we decided my YHM sounded quieter to the ear. I went with the 762 for versatility and titanium so that it wasn't heavy.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 7:27:43 PM EST
Alright, dumb question for follow up. 30-06 = .30 caliber. So you can use a .308 can on a 30-06?

Would a 308/7.62 can work on 7.62x39? Maybe thats a dumb question, but I've heard of stuff not being compatible that seems like it should be.

762x39 actually uses a bigger bullet then 762x51

762x39 = .310
762x51 = .308


I know silencerco advertised that the omega does both..

Link Posted: 11/2/2015 7:35:21 PM EST
.30 can is larger volume/heavier, which makes up for the larger exit hole, -every bit as quiet as a dedicated 5.56 can on a 5.56.

Depends on the particular can. 30-06 burns more powder which means more pressure and volume of gas. Some 30 cal suppressors are rated for it, but it's not a given.

All kinds of options are out there.
Research of the mounts and can options have to be sorted out.

My Gemtech HALO attaches over the A2 flash suppressor on my AR's. I wish Gemtech would make a .30 cal can with the same design for AR-10's.

My guess is everybody has gotten on the 'we sell a dedicated proprietary adapter' bandwagon so they can bilk us out of an extra hundred bucks for an adaptor for every gun we want to run our cans on.

Yes. I chose to go with YHM QD. If you don't want to leave a QD mount on a certain rifle, just spin it off when you are done.

Most suppressors use a proprietary mounting system to allow you to quickly and easily switch between rifles/calibers.

My HVT (7.62) suppresses 5.56 better than my G5 (5.56). Of course, it's longer and heavier, but it works like a charm.

Check with the manufacturer of your particular can, don't rely on the express unwritten consent of internet strangers. Some cans do, some don't.
