    What’s the benefit / best application for a can that almost 10” long? Seems to be best suited for a bench rest bolt action.... Am I missing anything? I’m guessing “no” but want to ask as I was offered a co plate kit as a form 1 build. I’m not bleeding cash, but if there’s a huge advantage, I’d consider it...

    Kind of what I was thinking... seems HUGE for anything more than that.

    Best application...…. rifle rounds, especially magnum...… Adding volume can help deal with the extra volume of gas a rifle rounds releases. However, there is a point of "diminishing returns on investment" or something like that. I may have stole that phrase from BigWaylon? Ex...…. the extra volume from an 8 inch can to a 12 inch can won't make a huge difference in the quietness of the can.... but should be noticeable. There are some really short cans on the market that perform really great.... the Sico Omega 300 is an awesome example.

    Whenever I get time...…. my next Form1 can is 30 caliber 1.75 x 12...…… my stamp is approved , it's engraved and I have all the goodies, I just gotta find time to get it done!

    I got a rugged surge, it's 7.5 inchs or 9 inches with the extra baffle. After test shooting it a bit in both lengths, I have only ran it in the 7.5 inch set up. The extra weight and length wasn't worth the unnoticeable sound reduction.

    Personally, I don’t see a practical application, but wanted to ask. I was offered a complete Solvent trap kit for a “great deal”but a great deal on a non value item isn’t a great deal...it’s a wast of a tax stamp fee!

    I think you should just dedicate it to a 22LR bolt gun. See how quiet you can get it.

    he gave me a number.. it’s not the “great deal” he suggested.... $400 for bits and pieces to fill a 9.5” Ti tube with 4 SS baffles and no spacers...

    For carbines I dont subscribe to the smaller silencer is better theory. Ive got a couple of 10" silencers. 5.5" barrel 9mm with a 10" handguard and packed full of 60 degree clipped cones on a CMMG guard action. Quietest centerfire gun I own and OAL its shorter than a standard carbine. The other one is a $24 chinese solvent trap can married to a .22 with tight K baffles. If there is a quieter silencer in the world I will have to give them creds. Also shorter than a 16" carbine.
