The .338 has a brake that fits over the barrel, taking about 2" off the overall length; he uses mounts that are similar to TBAC in that they are thread over brakes. If you go direct thread, then call Dale and talk to him about indexing it so it'll only have a vertical POI shift; he can also index and cut a brake to fit without shims. I still don't have the rifle, and may not for a while now so I can't tell you how well that one works, but it looks like it should work just fine. He makes good, solid, basic cans. No gimmicks, all 316SS, and this keeps costs down. He's a metallurgist by trade FWIW, and he doesn't build junk. Lots of alphabet soup agencies use his cans too. "
OP, sorry to derail your thread but Strykervet mentioned the above highlighted comment and it piqued my interest. Strykervet or anyone else can you elaborate on the above statement about indexing the silencer so that there is only a vertical POI shift. Would this pertain to K-style baffles mainly??? Very interested as this might be a solution to a minor issue im having that i never gave any thought.
Op, just to contribute to your question ive never touched a Crux but i did do a demo for some abc agencies and one had a Desert Tech 308 with an Elite Iron can that we used. It felt very well built, sounded great, and was accurate but that is about all the further my experience with either of the 2 mfg's you are asking about.
