    I have no knowledge on their effect on accuracy of a .308 Winchester.

    swoosh, go file the permit paperwork, pay your $200 tax, and test it for us.

    They are perfectly legal to own provided your state
    has no restrictions on them, you file paperwork
    and pay the $200.00 tax.

    Most states allow NFA!

    Sorry I haven't had time to catch up in here lately
    folks!

    Generally speaking, add-on suppressors negatively affect the accuracy. Still easily capable of 'minute-of-man' or better, though. Rifles that are designed and built with noise suppression in mind generally fare somewhat better.

    Bear in mind that 'suppressing' a .308 requires a combination of hardware and ballistic choices. Certainly not as simple as suppressing a 9mm.

    I'll bet Dr Dater can tell you.
    AWC, last I checked. He's a smart rascal, and LIKES to be quiet.

    I've shot a suppressed McMillan that was awsome. As was mentioned earlier - its a mix of the round and the weapon.

    Take a look at the .300 Whisper for a spiffy .30 cal set up for suppression. Its essentially a .223 necked up to .30.
