Theading barrels for brakes and suppressors
« on: September 04, 2019, 11:47:56 PM »

I have 3 suppressors (2 30 cal and 1 22 rm). I have 2 more on the wait list including a 22 rimfire can and a hybrid 46 that would let me shoot anything from 458 win on down.  It is also useable on pistols from 45 auto to 9 mm.
What I don’t know is how to thread the various guns I have.
My main question is my 7mm rem mag slender barrel.  Should I do 9/16x24 or 5/8x24

If anyone wants to thread a Tikka stock light barrel for calibers above 7 mm I would recommend 9/16x24 to leave a little more “meat” for adapter to seat on.  1/2 x28 is too skinny in my opinion.
