I just got my first suppressor in, yankee hill nitro 30. I haven't done a lot of testing with it yet, it has swappable base caps to go between attachment methods, DT or QD to their muzzle device. Is one attachment method known to be more accurate than the other? Is the difference even noticeable?

In days past DT used to be more accurate however those days are gone now if you purchase a can from a top company. I don't know about Yankee Hill, but I'd probably say you won't notice much if any difference between the two setups however someone else with more experience with YH can chime in.

I've got a new Nitro as well. The QD attachment seems solid enough. For the big calibers, they require the use of the QD muzzle brake to diffuse the gasses before they hit the baffles.

So far, I haven't seen any drastic accuracy changes. But, I'll follow up.

I only have YHM pistol cans, but while a brake inside a can acts as additional baffling if the can is pressure rated for big magnums I am surprised it would NEED a brake. As I understood it a can was either rated for magnum pressures or it wasn't, and whether QD, Compact Brake, or DT it either IS or it ISN'T rated for magnums.
At least this is my understanding.
