I did read his criteria Bill.
One of his claims also was for not gunking up his supressor with unburned powder also.
Was kinda a tongue in cheek way of saying i'm not sure he's gonna find a cartridge/bullet/powder combo to accomplish his wish list.

To get the speed, and bullet weight for the velocity/energy required and not clog a supressor is going to probably require a longer barrel, so that he could get full use of a slower burning powder.

Alas, unless Vikingguy has a barrel maker in his basement, it's gonna be about April/May of 2022 before he sees a barrel, IF he orders now.

Lots of people shoot big magnums with suppressors. I shot a full match next to a guy with a suppressed 300RUM. I couldn’t tell you how it compared to suppressing something smaller as I’ve never heard two different guns suppressed side by side, but the 300RUM was impressively quite in my opinion. Yes the barrel was longer than 18”, BUT the entire rig not was not insanely long, so the barrel couldn’t have been very long. I doubt the case capacity to bore volume ratio was completely outside the realm of an 18” 280Rem, which would meet his criteria.

If he plugged up his suppressor, it still offered substantial noise reduction.
