I have a TBAC cert and I’m stuck between the ultra 9 and 338 ultra. Obviously with the cert, it’s a better buy to go with the 338.
I currently have a 308 and am having a custom 300 wm being built in the near future.
My question is, does anyone regret getting the larger can for use on 30 cal and down?
Intended use is hunting and target shooting.

I did the same thing last year. Used a certificate to get the 338 ultra. Going to use it on a .260 &223 precision rifles. The check was cashed in June so I hope to get it soon. The size difference between it and the Ultra 9 was not enough to make a difference to me.

I have a 338 Ultra and I run 300 Whisper and lots of other calibers through it. Very quiet.

TBac fanboy here. I have 7 of them including the Ultra 338. (bought for an AI/AWSM 338). Use it on my DD4 .300 BLK in the backyard. Live across the street from a city park and nobody knows any better. (zoned rural, so it's legal)

The thing with cans is "one is never enough". For rifles, I think you need at least three. one for .22 (or .17 hmr) a 6.5mm tbac ultra 7" and their .338 can. I'll probably buy an ultra 5" in .30 for the blk, just don't feel like doing more paperwork when the .338 does a very nice job.
