First Look: Nosler Expands Into Suppressors

The renowned ammo and firearm manufacturer debuted four new models for hunters and shooters.

More and more hunters are taking a serious look at incorporating suppressors into their hunting gear. They reduce noise to help protect your hearing without the hassle of dealing with ear plugs, and they greatly tame the harsh muzzle blast associated with most high-velocity rifle cartridges.

The result for most hunters is improved accuracy in the field and less damage done to their hearing.

Nosler is one of the latest manufacturers to invest in suppressors. They have officially debuted a new product line of suppressors for hunters and shooters at the 2022 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

Made up of two different families—the Ti and the ALTi—this new line totals four models.

The Ti line, which features all-titanium suppressors, includes the SR-22Ti (.22 caliber) and the SR-30Ti (.30 caliber). Both weigh in around 13 ounces and are engineered to balance size, light weight, durability and sound mitigation. The SR-22Ti and SR-30Ti are $899.99 and $949.99, respectively.


The ALTi family, meanwhile, utilizes a hybrid aluminum/titanium construction and includes the SR-22ALTi (.22 caliber) and SR-30ALTi (.30 caliber) suppressors. These are also designed with an eye toward balancing size, weight, durability and sound reduction but carry an excellent price of $649.99 for the SR-22ALTi and $699.99 for the SR-30ALTi due to their hybrid makeup.

Both new Nosler suppressor families sport a modular design that attaches the baffle stack to the blast chamber with an exterior jam nut. Disassembly is also quite simple on all models for easy cleaning, maintenance or parts replacement. The suppressors attach either over a Nosler Muzzle Brake or via direct thread with an included thread adapter. They are compatible with standard 5/8-24 threads (for .30-caliber models) and 1/2-28 threads (for .22-caliber models). Both are also available in either black or gray.

According to a company release, Nosler suppressors will be widely available at dealers across the country by mid-February.

However, being a member of the outdoor media has its perks, and this past October, I was able to get hands-on time with one of the new Nosler suppressors—the SR-30Ti—three months before its official debut at SHOT Show.


Those of us who had already tagged out on a pronghorn hunt in Wyoming were able to test out the SR-30Ti on some of the Cowboy State’s abundant and often problematic prairie dogs.




We fired tons of rounds through the SR-30Ti suppressor, which was attached to a new Nosler Model 21 rifle chambered in 28 Nosler. While you can debate the practicality of lobbing .284-caliber 28 Nosler bullets at prairie dogs during the middle of an ammo shortage, know that we were conducting important testing on a new product. At least, that’s what we’d tell ourselves every time we loaded fresh rounds in the gun.

The important thing is that the SR-30Ti worked, reducing the 28 Nosler’s mighty bark to a much more tolerable level. This is crucial in something involving a high volume of shots, like prairie-dog hunting, but it’s just as important for big-game hunters who might only fire one shot in the field each season.

Studies consistently show that those who use firearms have an increased risk of developing permanent hearing loss than those who don’t. And this is especially true for those who don’t attempt to mitigate the noise produced by firearms with plugs, muffs or suppressors.
