    A question re- modular suppressors

    We all know that the first baffles in a can get the most wear, especially on varmint rigs ( my 17hornet is quite hard on em ) just wondering if anyone that fire heaps of rounds rotates their baffles or just replace the worn ones & yes I realize there's SS ones.
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Hey Phil, as a side note what cal baffles do you run on the 17 Hornet? 20cal or do they do a 17 cal baffle as a special order?

    We run 7 baffles on the 223 with ss on muzzle. Going to put 2 ss baffles together next week for a try out. WE clean the baffles after each hunt and use Valprex grease on the threads and o ring.

    Yeah the rotating baffles was just something that popped into my head last night, I've owned 3 or 4 different brands of modular can, all of different baffle design but all worked well.

    I always make sure my dpt baffles go on in the same order they came off not sure if it matters but my thoughts are
    That way you are putting the most wear on one baffle which is cheap to replace when it gets fucked

    If you’re going through baffles get an ss one
    Would like to hear what @DPT has to say about it

    Well I suggest you look down in there with a borescope. In the case, ignorance is bliss. I've seen -serious- erosion with these in not that many shots.

    Hey Guys,

    Most seem to keep the first baffle as always the first baffle, and replace it if enough rounds has gone through it to wear it out.
    But rotating is fine.

    The smallest s/s baffle we do is 22cal, that is still an option for your .17
