    Go to Remington's website and they are only showing ammo. I know Ruger acquired a portion, Vista outdoor got ammo and someone else got some?

    did a google and form search, nothing came up. Also I could be useless at searching things. I'm trying to figure out if I am burning all my powder or if I can go longer barrel to burn more powder and get more speed. Is there a way to tell?

    another suppressor

    I've got a Omega 300 but I want to get another suppressor just for my new bolt gun. Would the OSS 556 TI be a good suppressor to use on a 223 bolt gun? I know OSS are geared towards a AR type rifle but for the same price as most other cans are they compatible in sounds reduction for bolt...
