Greater potential for "fireball effect"--and directly in front of your face at that, I would think.

Ah yes, certainly a possibility, but at least its redirected forward.

I haven't noticed any increase in flash, and the videos I've seen of twilight shooting with the flash cans seem to concentrate the flash in a cone directly in front of the muzzle, rather than making a large fireball. Either way, it helps keep my fillings intact.

A 300 BO pistol I built that uses a 7.5" barrel and regular bird cage is a tad loud (but no louder than a regular 5.56 rifle IMO)--but other than that soft shooting even when firing full-power supersonic loads. Anyways--I understand the joys of firing subsonic loads suppressed (I'm just too cheap to pay for it). Enjoy and post some pics of groups.
