The Best Suppressors For .270 Winchester Hunting Ammo

The .270 Winchester was introduced almost a century ago, but it has a following that is arguably larger than it was when it was first introduced.

Initially relegated to the backseat because of the .30-06 Springfield cartridge, the .270 picked up steam after World War II and it really hasn’t slowed down since then.

Whether you’re doing hog control, hunting plains game, or on a mountainous trek, the .270 Winchester is right at home in all of those situations – and plenty more.

The only way to truly improve on the .270 Winchester is by adding a suppressor to your setup. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best suppressors on the market right now for the .270 Winchester cartridge.

Suppressor #1: Dead Air Sandman-S

Dead Air’s Sandman suppressors have great reputations and with good reason. The Sandman-S is the “little brother” to the Sandman-L, and while it may be smaller, it still retains all of the performance. Featuring a low blowback design, the Sandman-S is touted for not only its compact construction but also for its impressive noise reduction at the ear. That makes it a great option for a .270 Winchester suppressor.

The Dead Air Sandman-S features a quick-detach mounting system that incorporates an index pattern for ease of mounting and removal. It’s also outfitted with a removable front-end cap, making the Sandman-S extremely user-serviceable, allowing for quick disassembly, cleaning, and fast reassembly.

Why We Like It:

  • QD mounting system for easy on-off
  • User-serviceable for easy cleaning
  • Great sound reduction for the size

Suppressor #2: Banish 30

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 .270 Winchester rifle 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 lightweight. 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 rifle chambered in .270 Winchester!

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.

Why We Like It:

  • Modular design to fit specific needs
  • User-serviceable for easy cleaning
  • Titanium offers great strength with minimal weight

Banish 30 Specs

  • Weight: 10 oz or 13 oz
  • Length: 7″ or 9″
  • Finish: GunKote and DLC
  • Materials: Titanium
  • MSRP: $979

Suppressor #3: SilencerCo Omega 300

SilencerCo’s Omega 300 is the lightest, shortest, quietest, full-auto-rated, titanium silencer in its category. If you like to have choices and options, it even comes complete with direct thread and fast-attach mounts, as well as a removable Anchor Brake to reduce recoil, which can be replaced with a flat front cap if you don’t need the brake.

The Omega 300 is popular for all sorts of .30-caliber chamberings, as well as slightly smaller ones like the .270 Winchester. That makes it one of the best multi-caliber suppressors in its class, so it will be right at home on a variety of other rifles, too. You aren’t just limited to the .270 Winchester, so try it out with .308, .30-06, .300 Blackout, etc.

Why We Like It:

  • Multiple mounting options come with it
  • Comes with a brake in the box
  • Best in class specs in its category

SilencerCo Omega 300 Specs

  • Weight: 14.8 oz

Suppressor #4: Banish 30 Gold

An exceptionally versatile suppressor, the Banish 30 Gold is rated for calibers from rimfire up to 300 RUM, making it a great choice for a shooter using .270 Winchester cartridges. All Banish suppressors have been designed for unmatched sound suppression, and testing shows that the Banish 30 Gold reduces the report by 36 decibels. The average sound level heard by shooters from the Banish 30 Gold is 132.9 decibels!

Like all Banish suppressors, the Banish 30 Gold is made from a strong titanium alloy that results in unmatched durability at an extremely lightweight of just 13 ounces.

The Banish 30 Gold is an 8.2-inch quick detach suppressor holding 11 baffles, and comes with two 100% titanium muzzle brakes (1/2×28 and 5/8×24). Completely user-serviceable, you can disassemble the suppressor for cleaning in a tumbler, ultrasonic cleaner, or by hand. When you’re ready to put it back together, the baffles are keyed and indexed for hassle-free reassembly.

Perfect for everything from a fun time at the range to big game hunting, the Banish 30 Gold will significantly reduce the report and recoil of large-caliber rifles (up to 45% in testing), while still being effective on rifles down to rimfire calibers.

Why We Like It:

  • User-serviceable for easy cleaning
  • Comes with multiple mounts, a pouch, a cover, and a baffle removal tool
  • Titanium offers great strength with minimal weight

Hunting With Suppressed .270 Winchester

As we mentioned before, tens of thousands of people have trusted a rifle chambered in .270 Winchester for hunts of all kinds for almost a century. As long as you understand the game you’re hunting and are confident in both your abilities and those of your chosen cartridge load, there’s no reason you can’t trust the .270 Winchester on your next hunt either.

Adding a suppressor into the mix is a gamechanger. The reduced decibel level will help protect your hearing and the hearing of the rest of your hunting party. Plus, there’s less chance of spooking any other game that may be in the area.

While the recoil from a .270 isn’t extreme, it’s still nice to know that a “side effect” of using a suppressor is recoil reduction. That means you can expect a very accurate first shot with an easy time getting back on target if you need a follow-up shot.
