Shooting a tactical bolt gun without trying a suppressor wouldn’t be a real test, so while I was testing all this ammo, I also fired some of them through the Thunder Beast Ultra-9 suppressor. This model is made from titanium and only weighs 11.5 ounces. I opted for the model that mounts on a TOMB (thread over muzzle brake), which makes it very easy to put it on and take it off as needed. Not only is it one of the lightest full-sized units on the market, it also reports to be 130 to 132 db when shooting full-power ammo. In addition to reducing the sound level, it also drastically reduces felt recoil and improves accuracy. In every case during the tests, the accuracy with the suppressor attached was better than without it. In some cases, I experienced as much as a 50 percent reduction in group size. The Ultra-9 uses a simple, but very effective, muzzle brake attachment method with a tapered surface. The result? The suppressor seats onto the brake—perfectly centered every time.
