James Yeager of Tactical Response demonstrates how different projectile weights affect overall sound suppression, and he uses a YHM Phantom. Maybe suppressor owners already know this or not, its worth looking at how the higher grains affect the sound. The higher the grain the quieter it got, simply due to the velocity not the weight. Very interesting video!

turbo-rifle-backSilencing the Competition with the new TURBO sound suppressor by YHM Yankee Hill Machine is proud to announce the release of the TURBO, the all new 5.56 suppressor. It was designed to meet the increasing demand for a quiet, yet lightweight sound suppressor that won’t break the bank. As the current state of the suppressor industry grows and evolves, the demand for a high-tech, cost effective suppressor becomes more apparent.

Since we first began milling out handguards as a firearms manufacturer, YHM has built a strong reputation on producing the highest quality products for the everyday shooter that doesn’t have access to an unlimited budget. The same YHM commitment lives on, bringing the modern suppressed shooter a superior product at an attainable price point.turbo-vert

The TURBO utilizes a tubeless design made from heat treated 17-4 stainless steel along with a heat treated 718 Inconel blast baffle. The combination of these materials allows the suppressor to be full auto rated and designed for rigorous use. The overall length measures 6.5” with a 1.5625” diameter -all while weighing in at a surprising 13.5 oz. Having an average sound pressure level of 134dB on a 14.5” AR shooting 55 grain ammo, the TURBO is well within the hearing safe threshold of 140 dB. Built with the same care, quality, and attention to detail that has defined the YHM brand for generations.

With an MSRP of $489 (which includes a Q.D. brake) the TURBO was created to supply the modern suppressor community with a full-featured suppressor at an affordable price.
