SilencerCo Announces Harvester Subsonic Ammunition

posted on December 9, 2014

Unimpressed by the quality of subsonic ammunition available on the market, suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo decided to make its own. Designed to offer optimal performance in suppressor-equipped firearms, its new Harvester Subsonic .300 Blackout ammunition promises accuracy and unparalleled sound suppression in a package that does not compromise stopping power.

"At SilencerCo, we are customers first-hunters and shooters," said Joshua Waldron, chief executive officer of SilencerCo. "Customers shouldn't have to accept a tradeoff between accuracy and sound reduction, so we designed the Harvester ammunition line to provide sub-MOA accuracy in the quietest subsonic .300 Blackout ammunition on the market."

As SilencerCo's first venture into the ammunition game, the new Harvester load generates its performance utilizing a 220-gr. Sierra MatchKing bullet traveling at an average speed of 1029 feet per second, while maintaining an average sound pressure of only 119.8 dBs from the muzzle of a suppressed 16" barrel.

While offering only one load at this time, Waldron stated that additional products are forthcoming.

"Harvester Subsonic .300 Blackout is the first in a series of unmatched ammunition from SilencerCo," he said. "Our goal is to offer a wide range of rifle and pistol ammunition, all of which will be subsonic and optimized for sound suppression, accuracy and terminal effects."

Harvester .300 Blackout ammunition is available now online and through select dealers. MSRP: $30 (per box of 20). To learn more or to purchase, go to
