High-Performance Suppressor with Secondary Retention (SR)
.338 Lapua Magnum caliber
The 338 ULTRA SR is our latest high-performance .338 caliber suppressor. It offers class leading suppression levels, a light weight design, and our “SR” quick attach/detach mount that offers locking Secondary Retention.
The 338 ULTRA SR will suppress a typical .338 Lapua Magnum bolt-action rifle down to approximately 135-138 dB at the muzzle1, and approximately 124-128 dB at the shooter’s ear 2. It also has very little or no “first round pop” (FRP) in most applications.
The 338 ULTRA SR weighs 20.2 ounces including the SR mount mechanism on the suppressor itself. The SR brake weighs 3.6 ounces. It is only compatible with the 338 ULTRA SR series of brakes and flash hiders.
The 338 ULTRA SR represents the next step in the evolution of the 338 ULTRA suppressor, and more broadly, the next step for TBAC suppressor mounts. However, the 338 ULTRA SR will NOT replace the regular 338 ULTRA.
The 338 ULTRA SR has the same durability, longevity, and performance as the BA-mount 338 ULTRA but includes our new SR (“Secondary Retention”) mount. This mount meets the mil spec represented in the 2017 Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR) solicitication, and the 338 ULTRA SR is the suppressor that Accuracy International North America chose for their ASR rifle system submission.
The main feature of the SR mount is that it acts as a secondary, fail-safe, locking mechanism to retain the suppressor on the muzzle brake in all circumstances, unless explicitly removed on purpose, by hand. It also reduces the number of turns required to mount the suppressor due to a coarser thread and enables “Quick Mount” and “Quick Detach” functionality of the mount. The mount is mechanically very simply and user-level maintenance is possible.
HOW OUR MOUNT IS DIFFERENT
The SR mount uses a novel paw and cam-path system to ensure that “full lock up” can happen in either of the two adjacent detent slots for any given final shouldering position of the suppressor on the conical brake shoulder. This categorically avoids the “off by one” problem that many “clicky” mounts have. The SR mount has the exact same accuracy, repeatability, and return-to-zero characteristics that all our precision suppressors are known for.
This mounting system is covered by US Patent 9,791,234.
SAME ULTRA CONSTRUCTION
The ULTRA series is constructed of titanium with a fully-welded core. This material and construction provide a great strength to weight ratio. It can take whatever your precision rifle can dish out.
The 338 ULTRA SR was designed around .338 Lapua Magnum for maximum flexibility and is rated with that cartridge down to 16″ barrels. The 338 ULTRA SR can easily do multiple-rifle duty on 6mm’s, 6.5’s, .260’s, .308, and most .30 caliber magnums.

Please note that thermal input will be higher with shorter barrels. Ultra series suppressors should be kept under 800 degrees F.
1. “At the muzzle” (M) sound measurements are measured in accordance with MIL-STD-1474D using a B&K PULSE SLM one meter offset from muzzle of the suppressor
2. “At Shooter’s Ear” (SE) measurements are measured in accordance with MIL-STD-1474D using a B&K PULSE SLM at the position of the shooter’s right ear in a normal shooting position. SE measurements are affected by overall rifle length; we used an AI AXMC for our measurements.
