    Can you elaborate? I have a 30 cal sandman S on the way. I was thinking a sandman K or Turbo K would be a perfect second can for me.

An added bonus would be if I could occasionally switch it to a 16" ar308 from time to time.

    Cost is not really a huge factor, but if I can keep the cost of the can to $1k or less, that would be great. A bigger factor would be length and weight, since the 12.5" is my primary, but I frequently shoot a 6920 as well.

    I dont have the ability to shoot a bunch of cans to see which sounds best to me.

    Any particular reason to choose Surefire over Dead Air or Silencerco?

    Would I regret going with something like a Turbo K?

    Is it stupid to get a 30 cal can with my application? The 308 is purely for fun, the 5.56 guns are the ones I train with and take to classes.

    The more I think about it, the more confused I get. What's the 6920 or BCM equivalent in suppressors?
    I was in a similar position to you and started with the SilencerCo Omega which now goes by the Omega300 if I read things correctly.

    What I like is it is lightweight and EFFECTIVE. On my KAC SR-15 LPR is super quiet. I could direct mount it and take the muzzle brake front cap off and shorten it up a lot if I wanted.

    Since I use it on so many rifles, I keep the QD mount and for the big boomers the muzzle break.

    If I were to start all over today, I would probably go with Dead Air, maybe Rugged or Griffin. Today, I don't regret my choices but, honestly today there is a lot more GOOD competition to offer more choices than I had at the time of initial purchase though I did have some older heavy AAC cans from the "Kevin" days.

    I also considered the same things as the "OP" and ended up going with the Nomad 30. I was also considering the Sandman but wanted the shorter and lighter Nomad 30 because I too was going to use it on multiple rifles. I don't think you could go wrong with the Sandman S, it's just a little longer and heavier but the Sandman looks to be indestructible.
