Last year I sold the .300 bulk upper I had on it to fund something else. It’s been sitting ever since and I’m ready to do something with it. I loved the novelty of shooting sub rounds through a suppressor on it but I was just that...novelty. 
 

Are there any calibers it thee that could take advantage of the shorter barrel and suppressor better than the .300 blk?  I do still have some interest in running full power loads through it but would want a 9” barrel. I had a 10.5 last a time and always found myself wishing it was shorter. 
 

If you had a complete SBR’d lower what would you do with it?

I don’t know what you mean by “better” than .300Blk. Isn’t short barrel, sub sonic what that round is for?

If I was going to suppress something, I would think I would want the best round I could get that was sub sonic off the shelf. .45ACP?

Pistol Caliber Carbine is also on the radar. I’ve never thought to do a .45ACP but have considered 9mm.  I just didn’t like the cost of ammo on the blackout.  It was fun to plink around with the sub ammo but not at that price.

Now a subsonic 458 is a hammer.

 

I don't have a 458 but I have to imagine 300 BLK is cheaper per round that 458

Blackout is designed to burn all powder in a 9 inch barrel.  I don't know of any other cheaper cartridges that can do the same.

      Got this in e-mail today. Seems like ATF is trying hard, but swamped and outdated.  The real culprit is the FBI.

      Being a transplant from a restricted state, I only recently have used suppressors. On trying out my new Obsidian45 and Kraken9, I was let down a bit by the Speer 147gr I shot thru the Kraken.
      It didn't seem any quieter than 124gr Nato though is suppose to be subsonic. I used my hearing protection (outdoor) for both.  On looking around, I've seen some comments the Speer is louder. Would like some recommendations of readily available 147 grain that y'all may have found to work best. 
      I've seen reviews that Hush 165 is the gold standard, and 158gr Fiocchi is good.  They are not easy to find, so hopefully something less exotic does the trick.
