    How long would you like your suppressor to last ?

    I'd like to shorten mine to 24". Unfortunately it only started out at 22".

    Yeah. You could chop it but I wouldn't go any shorter than 24".
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    have you tried crushing up some of those "blue pills" and adding them to the powder, might work

    Is the guts of the supressor likely to erode quickly due to the fierce muzzle blast/incomplete burning of slow powder? I had wondered what happens to the suppressor when you shorten a big boomer, a lot of short .284's are floating about

    It's a Scott Trail one we'll ask about that when he fits it. Won't be firing hundreds of rounds.
