Anyone use a suppressor on the Kimber MA

My SilencerCo Harvester finally received the ATF "get out of jail for $200" card.

Even though it's one of the lightest can out there, it seemed to do a great job of mitigating the recoil on my Kimber MA in 6.5. Esp. the muzzle did not want to take off to the sky. The POI shift was only about an inch at 100yds.

I have to do more range trips to test it out, but I like the combo so far. I prefer it over the stock Kimber brake. Sound mitigation was pretty decent, though I do not have previous experience with suppressed fire.

But definitely a bigger difference in recoil with the Kimber than my Rem 700 Varmint in 308 with the same can. I think it is the added weight at the fore-end of the Kimber that makes the difference with eliminating the muzzle rise.

Anyone else had any good /bad experiences with cans on their Mountain rifle?

Don't know how much feedback you will get to this post. Because don't seem to be a lot of Kimber rifle owners here and those of us that do own Kimber rifles just a few of us shooting suppressed.
I don't own a Mountain Assent.

I suppress the M82 and SVT in .22lr, the Longmaster Classic's .308, for the heck of it I had the .204Ruger threaded. Due to life happening and the Kung Flu not got a lot of any kind of shooting done suppressed or otherwise.
I've been happy with them all. More test shooting is needed by me to check accuracy etc.
Using a Sparrow for the .22lr, Gemtech with quickmounts for big rifles.
Rick has tons of rounds under his belt and has a lot of information in his brain. Several others shoot more than me to.

Bouree, I'd like to see a photo of your Mountain Ascent with the Harvester. The Mountain Ascent is a fine rifle that I've wanted since they were introduced.

I ended up choosing an "abbreviated" MA, the 18" barrelled Kimber Adirondack in 7mm-08. It wears a Zeiss 3-15x 40 and the SilencerCo Omega 300.

I bought the combo for my commemorative once-in-lifetime Colorado bull moose hunt, and took a fine bull off Pawnee Pass at 10,950' elevation. Two rounds of Barnes Vor-Tex 120 gr. TTSX, both fatal, and the bull dropped in three steps.

I took a pronghorn buck with it last fall and will hunt elk with it again in October.

I love the rifle. It's 7 lbs. complete and field ready with scope, suppressor, sling and a full mag. Easy to carry, soft shooting and accurate. The Omega 300 is mounted with the QD ASR mount and in seconds I can transfer it to my 5.56 and 300 BLK rifles.

The Omega 300 includes the ASR QD mount, so I can transfer it in seconds from the 7mm-08 to my 5.56 and 300 BLK rifles.
