Suppressor for .50 Beowulf

A friend of mine just got his tax stamp for an SBR, and is now considering a suppressor for his .50 Beowulf. The only ones he knows are for .50BG, and its not my area of expertise, so I'm asking for him.

Does anyone know of a "can" made for the .50 Beowulf?

Thanks.

Suppressor for .50 Beowulf

Some .45 suppressors should be able to handle the diameter but the pressures are 33,000 psi vs 21,000 psi on .45 acp. Bowers suppressors are rated for .44 mag which is in the same pressure category as 50 Beowulf. If you can verify enough clearance I would imagine that is your best bet.

Quicksilver manufactures made a titanium .50 Beo can.

Company website seems to be down... or screwed up...

The Bowers VERS-50 is rated for something like 2200 fps. Should be good.
