The 6 Best 6.5 Creedmoor Suppressors in 2024
The 6.5 Creedmoor is, without a doubt, one of the most popular cartridges on the market today. It has diehard supporters as well as steadfast naysayers, but that’s to be expected with just about every caliber out there. Remember: everyone’s an expert and knows what caliber is best, and it just so happens that your favorite is the wrong one.
Whatever. Don’t let them get to you. Moving on.
Named for the Creedmoor long-range shooting facility that once called Queens, New York, home, the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge was designed for – you guessed it – long-range shooting of 1,000 yards or more.
The cartridge’s balance between long-range capabilities and light felt recoil made it an almost instant hit. Once word got started to spread about this “wonder round,” it was only a matter of time before people started using it in rifles with suppressors.
And so, this is a list of our top six picks for 6.5 Creedmoor suppressors. Feel free to jump to a specific one:

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A 6.5 CREEDMOOR SUPPRESSOR
Versatility is the name of the game with the 6.5 Creedmoor, and so that’s what you’ll be looking to find when shopping for a suppressor to go with this cartridge.
While there are some suppressors on the market that are designed specifically for this round, the majority of the ones that you’ll find that handle 6.5 Creedmoor are also perfectly suited to a variety of other similarly-sized calibers. This is a good thing because you’ll more than likely end up with a can that is capable of use on a number of different firearm hosts that you own.
Make sure, too, that you consider your host gun when buying a suppressor. Look at the host gun’s weight, overall length, and what you’ll be using it for. A suppressor of one weight and length might be fine for bench shooting, but might be a bit much for humping through the countryside all day on a hunt. Remember: ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain.
Once you’ve got a ballpark weight and length in mind, then you can consider other things like mounting options, accessory compatibility, and, of course, price.

THE OVERALL BEST 6.5 CREEDMOOR SUPPRESSOR
When someone starts shopping around for a suppressor and asks the opinion of other owners what brand they should get, there’s one company that gets mentioned more than any other: Thunder Beast Arms Corp, or TBAC.
Each product in the ULTRA series from TBAC has a number with it. Usually, it’s a 5, 7, or 9, and this indicates the length of the can. In this case, we’ll be talking about the ULTRA-9 Gen2, which is their full-length precision rifle suppressor.
Available in multiple configurations, including one that is specific to the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, the ULTRA-9 Gen2 is a titanium, fully-welded tubeless suppressor. This means that it is not designed to be taken apart and the baffles are joined directly to one another instead of being stacked in a separate tube.
Available as either a direct thread can, HUB mounting, flash hider, or with a compact brake (CB) mount, it is available in a variety of different thread patterns. The weight of the can will vary slightly depending on which kind of mount you use.
Simply put, this is a solid suppressor that is lightweight, rugged, and quiet – tests show decibel ratings of 121 dB at the shooter’s ear. You can’t go wrong with the TBAC ULTRA-9 Gen2.
- Available as caliber-specific for 6.5 Creedmoor
- Made of lightweight titanium
- Choose from direct thread, HUB, compact brake, or flash hider mounting
- TBAC products are very popular, so it might be hard to find

OVERALL RUNNER-UP 6.5 CREEDMOOR SUPPRESSOR
Dead Air’s Nomad 30 is a compact, lightweight suppressor that was created with the everyday user in mind – from range day mag dumps to precision work and everything in between. Because it’s a .30-cal can, it’s perfect for 6.5 Creedmoor and a whole bunch of other calibers.
Made of fully-welded stainless steel with a two chamber, high-efficiency baffle design for great sound suppression, the Nomad 30 is designed for both high and low pressure cartridges so that you can use one suppressor no matter your needs.
Compatible with Dead Air’s R-Series front caps, you can swap out the Nomad 30’s cap for optimum performance depending on the cartridge you’re shooting. The Nomad 30 ships as a direct thread suppressor, but can use Xeno or KeyMo and is compatible with HUB adapters.
- Front caps can be changed based on the caliber

THE BEST PREMIUM 6.5 CREEDMOOR SUPPRESSOR
If you’re going to go all out and spend the big bucks, you might as well splurge on the BANISH 30-GOLD. Now, this can is specially made by us at Silencer Central, but there’s a good reason for it taking this spot on the list.
Made of lightweight titanium, the BANISH 30-GOLD has 11 baffles in a tube that’s just barely over eight inches in length and weighs just 13 ounces. This means you’re getting a suppressor that is as light, short, and quiet as possible, and will make your range day with a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle one of the most pleasant you’ve ever had.
This QD suppressor is rated for full-auto fire and can be completely taken apart by the user for cleaning. Yeah, we know you’re not supposed to have to take a rifle suppressor apart for cleaning, but it’s nice to know that you have the option to really get in there and get it super clean if you want to.
To round out the BANISH 30-GOLD, it also comes standard with accessories that normally cost extra from other companies. Along with the suppressor, you’ll get two muzzle brakes – 1/2×28 and 5/8×24, a limited-edition gray Devour suppressor cover, BANISH suppressor pouch in black, BANISH baffle removal tool, a Silencer Central t-shirt, and a Silencer Central vinyl sticker.
- Full-auto rated
- Comes with a premium accessory package valued at more than $500
- At $1,699, it may be out of reach for some buyers
Specs: BANISH 30-GOLD
Weight: 13.2 oz
THE BEST MULTI-CALIBER OPTION
The BANISH 30 is a direct-thread suppressor that mounts on conventional 5/8×24 threads and comes out of the box as a 9″ suppressor holding eight baffles.
If, however, you’ll be shooting suppressed in tighter, more confined spaces, or you just don’t want as much can hanging off the end of your barrel, then you’ll benefit greatly from this suppressor’s modularity. It can easily break down and assemble into a 7″ configuration with six baffles. Either way, you’ll still get great sound suppression with minimal added length on your .300 Blackout rifle, carbine, or pistol in either configuration.
Weight is just as important as the overall length in this situation. The Banish 30 is made from a strong titanium alloy for unmatched durability at an extremely light weight. In the full configuration, it weighs 13 ounces; in the short configuration, it weighs just 10 ounces. You’ll be hard-pressed to even feel it on the average .300 Blackout rifle, carbine, or pistol!
When it comes time for cleaning, the Banish 30 easily comes apart from both ends and is ready to be tossed in a tumbler, ultrasonic cleaner, or cleaned manually. Reassembly is a breeze due to the baffles being keyed and indexed for exact alignment.
- Can be used with different multiple calibers, including rimfire
- Modularity in size to fit your needs
- Titanium construction is super strong yet still lightweight
- Direct thread attachment only

Weight: 11.2 oz or 14.3 oz

THE BEST BUDGET SUPPRESSOR FOR 6.5 CREEDMOOR
Suppressors aren’t cheap, especially when you’re talking about ones that can handle rifle calibers. More often than not, you can expect to spend north of a grand – and that’s before Uncle Sam comes after his $200 tax stamp.
That’s why the Yankee Hill Machine Resonator R2, which has an MSRP of $764, takes the slot for the best budget 6.5 Creedmoor suppressor.
To be clear, though, when we say “budget” we don’t mean cheap in terms of quality. YHM created the R2 with the intent to provide shooters of all types with a quiet and cost-effective silencer. The R2 can be used on calibers ranging from .17HMR through 300 RUM, which means 6.5 Creedmoor fits nicely within that range.
To make things even better, YHM redesigned the Resonator that we tested, and this is the Resonator R2, which is even better than before. This suppressor uses a tubeless design made of stainless steel with an Inconel blast baffle, which means it’s also rated for full auto performance.
Compatible with other YHM mounts and QD adapters, you won’t have to buy extra accessories if you’ve already got a YHM suppressor. Plus, it’s an extremely affordable suppressor for what you’re getting.
- Recently redesigned for even better overall performance
- Fantastic sound suppression
- Great price for what you get
- Minimum barrel length requirements of 10.5” for 7.62×39 (of course, not an issue with 6.5 Creedmoor)
Specs: Yankee Hill Machine Resonator R2
Weight: 16 oz
THE QUIETEST 6.5 CREEDMOOR SUPPRESSOR
The CGS Hyperion WD 762 is a rifle suppressor built for impressive sound reduction. At just 15.6 ounces, with a 9.5-inch length, the Hyperion is constructed of titanium for a light weight yet highly durable silencer. This CGS suppressor also boasts a 1.75-inch diameter, also leading to its noteworthy sound reduction.
Featuring two separate front end caps, a low profile front end cap and a vented end cap, the CGS Hyperion is optimized for precision shooting. CGS’s design is even left handed friendly for shooters using semi auto host firearms to comfortably shoot due to its reduced blowback. This CGS silencer also includes shallow taper joints which allows for optimal concentricity and retention. Its durability, modularity, and sound reduction truly make the CGS Hyperion shine.
The Hyperion is threaded in 5/8x 24 and will properly direct thread onto any barrel that is threaded in 5/8×24 and has a machined 25 degree taper. A Hyperion Thread Adapter is required to properly seat a Hyperion onto any barrel with a 90 degree shoulder. The only exception is if the crown of the barrel is .736 inches or wider.
- Fantastic sound suppression
- Lefty friendly
- Lightweight yet durable titanium construction
- Vented end cap is a separate purchase
