    Hearing Protection

    I have just gotten a SCAR 17 and it is much louder than my SCAR 16. I have used foam ear plugs shooting the 16, but they are not enough with the SCAR 17. My ears are ringing after a day on the range with the 17. My cheapo ear muffs don't work either when I push my cheek into the stock. What are you guys using for ear protection when shooting the SCAR 17?
    Thanks

    I use plugs and muffs. Shotgunner muffs - low profile. This is what I wear regardless of what I'm firing.

    Ditching the muzzle brake helps also

    Try something decent like those from MSA. Sure you guys must have them there. I use their electronic ones and I'm extremely happy.

    I use MSA Sordin Supremes.... not only do they protect your hearing but they give you bionic hearing so you can actually hear ambient sounds BETTER. I've got a set of Peltor 6S as well to loan out when I bring people to the range, but they don't compare at all to the Sordins.

    I have a pair of Pro-ears Pro Tac Plus Golds, they are a little pricey, but well worth it for the amount I shoot.

    I recommend the Advanced Armament SCAR-H SD or the Gemtech Quicksand!

    Luckily I've worked next to aircraft for five years, so I no longer need hearing protection anymore. But I would suggest wearing your plugs like usual, but keep a pair of muffs around if the plugs aren't enough. Also, try adjusting your right ear muff as high up as possible to keep it from interfering with your cheek weld

    I've been using Surefires Sonic Defenders EP3, they work for me. I got tiered of using muffs and having them get in the way.

    I am also with Mustang281 only you would have to get something like the 762-SD since AAC stopped selling the SCAR-H SD to civilans.
