    Lead free .22 through a sealed can?

    So, I think everyone knows it's a bad idea to shoot .22LR through a sealed can because you can't take it apart to clean off the lead, but what about this stuff.

    Let's ignore the fact that .22 cans are dirt cheap for this thread, this isn't about that.

    Seems like it would work. That ammo is interesting, but kind of pricey for LR, which is why I've never messed with it.

    I donít know why that wouldnít work. Itís expensive enough that it absolutely defeats the purpose of shooting 22lr for most folks though.

    There a few threads on that round at Rimfire Central accuracy runs about 5" at 25 yards. My guess is the rifling isn't correct for the bullet weight.

    It's not just leading. Burnt powder sticking to the wax a lot of 22lr is dipped in builds up rapidly. Most of what I scrape off my baffles is powder and wax.

    I'm assuming the sealed can is for a centerfire. I think I've heard that you can just shoot regular .223, .308, etc afterwards and that would blow out the leading from the rimfire. Maybe someone else could comment on the validity of this.

    No you can't. It takes a reasonable effort to clean 22lr baffles because of the wax and powder sediment that keeps gluing itself to the baffles when it heats up.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if that was correct or not.

    Cool, good to know. I was just curious. The only can I own right now is a Hybrid 46 so it would be a tad ridiculous to hang on any of the .22s I own, but I want a .30 suppressor before I even think of getting one for .22
