I have permanent tennitus.i have shot many calibers and firearms. My left ear has hearing damage after shooting AR rifles. The worst is my 50 BMG though. I wear electronic muffs and plugs and still ring my ears. Please be careful and take all precautions when shooting. I wish I had taken better care of my hearing.
