The Thunder Beast 30BA is the brake-attached version of the flagship long-range precision rifle suppressor for Thunder Beast. It offers best-in-class sound suppression levels in a very light weight format, and is built with accuracy as its first priority. The Thunder Beast 30BA is designed to mount over our muzzle brake. It is particularly suited to applications where the rifle will be shot suppressed and unsuppressed, and a brake is desired when shooting without the suppressor.
Thunder Beast developed the 30BA and 338BA to meet the requirement that some customers have for a suppressor that mounts over a muzzle device. They haven't found a "quick mount" on the market that meets their accuracy and repeatability requirements, so they developed the BA series to mount over the brake and provide the same repeatability as the direct thread attach suppressors, like the 30P-1. The 30BA features a conical shoulder for rock solid POI repeatability and to make sure it never comes loose.
The Thunder Beast 30BA was designed around .308 for maximum flexibility and is rated up to .300 Winchester Magnum, but it's the ideal suppressor for the most competitive mid-sized cartridges for long-range shooting such as .243 Winchester .260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5x47 Lapua, 6.5-284 Norma, and 7mm Remington Magnum & WSM.
The Thunder Beast 30BA uses the baffle stack of the 30P-1, which has racked up impressive results at long-range field shooting events in the Rocky Mountain region, including the Blue Steel Ranch Steel Safari and the NRA Whittington Center Sporting Rifle Match. Many long-range shooters prefer shooting suppressed because the muzzle blast and concussion is eliminated, while the recoil impulse is reduced and smoothed out over time. The net result is that the rifle is easier to shoot and it's easier to make hits. Communication with your spotter is easier because the need for hearing protection is reduced.
The 30BA is constructed of titanium with a fully-welded baffle core. This material and construction provides a great strength to weight ratio. It can take whatever your precision rifle can dish out. The 30BA brake will accept the 338BA suppressor, so with a .30 caliber brake on your .308 and a .338 brake on your .338 Lapua Magnum, you can use a single 338BA suppressor on both. The 30BA suppressor will not fit on a 338BA brake.
The Thunder Beast 30BA is ideal for: long-range practical competition shooters; varminters; predator hunters; precision tactical shooters.
