    Ammo for SCAR 17 w Suppressor

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if I can get some suggestions on what subsonic ammo works best on your guns suppressed.

    This is my friends SCAR - but I had to share a pic of this beauty.

    Thank you!

    Subsonic ammo doesn't work with a SCAR 17. It won't cycle right.

    With the stupid cheap prices of AR's right now, I'd pick up a 300BO AR as it will be easier and cheaper to find subsonic ammo.

    Agreed, I haven't heard anyone getting the scar to reliably cycle subs. If you want a semi auto farmerted has the right idea or you can go bolt gun and be super quiet with either 308 or 300blk subs.
