So How Quietly Can You Suppress a .50 BMG?

The mighty Barret M107 .50 BMG could use some quiet time.

With the QDL quick detach suppressor and subsonic ammunition the results are very quiet.

Watch this video and see a quiet combination of the Barret M107 .50 BMG Caliber rifle and a QDL Suppressor with Subsonic Ammunition.

The .50 BMG caliber is a heavy hitter with long range capabilities. It is also eardrum-splitting loud.

Well, High Powered Armory, in a video shared by Outdoor Ohio Journal, shows us a way around all of that noise. With the QDL quick detach suppressor mounted on a Barret M107 using standard ammunition, the noise level gets knocked down quite a bit.

Using subsonic ammunition, this otherwise loud rifle becomes a quiet spoken half-inch wide projectile launcher. Sounds like a winning combination to us.
