The ULTRA 5 is Thunder Beast's super compact, 5" .30 caliber precision rifle suppressor that's rated from .223 up to 300 RUM, 7mm RUM, and 300 Norma Mag. The Ultra 5 shines when minimum size is the highest priority but good suppression is still required. The 100% titanium build keeps the weight down, coming in at only 7.6 oz., making it one of the shortest and lightest suppressors in its class. Like the rest of the Ultra series, the CB mounted suppressors thread over Thunder Beast's brake/flash hider and lock up tight with the conical shoulder on the mount.
Even thought the Ultra 5 has a smaller profile, it will perform just as well as the Ultra 7 and 9. The 5 will provide the shooter with the same precision, repeatability, and minimal (if any) POI shift. The Ultra 5 will suppress a standard .308 bolt-action rifle down to approx 143-145 dB and will bring a 16" bolt-action .300 Blackout down to 133-135 dB with subsonic ammo.
The Ultra 5 is an awesome can if you need maneuverability, as the 5" suppressor barely adds to overall length of your rifle. Since the CB series mounts over the muzzle brake, the Ultra 5 only adds 3.25" to the length and makes it super easy to swap the Ultra 5 on different host weapons. The Ultra 5 makes a great addition to a pickup or tractor gun and also makes a hunting rifle manageable to move around. The super lightweight build makes it great for hunting trips where reducing every ounce you carry counts. The best part is the Ultra 5 has the same ratings as the rest of the Ultra Series, which means the 5 is built to handle high pressure loads like the 300 RUM, 7mm RUM, and 300 Norma Mag (Be sure to reference the barrel restrictions below).
As always, keep in mind that the Ultra Series suppressors aren't meant for heavy rates of fire or mag dumps. The 5 works great on semi or full auto weapons, its just that it's best to keep the Ultra 5 under 800 Degrees. If you need a suppressor that can withstand heavy rates of fire, but offer similar sound suppression, check out the Sandman-K. The Ultra series is a proven commodity in the suppressor world and has a huge following in the precision rifle and long range community. Thunder Beast started their company with one goal, which was to make the best sound suppressor for precision and long-range shooting. And believe us, you won't be disappointed.
