    You hear this a lot. The short answer is “no”.

    Ray from TBAC started a thread on ARF recently that will be eye opening to some. They got an Ultra 7 back that had seen some 28K rounds of 6.5 CM through it. The silencer weight 10.5oz more than when it was new. Metered >20dB louder than it should.

    Data, video and discussion here:

    To be clear, this is a very different situation than the comment in my sig. :D

    Question is, can they clean it at this point?

    Loud, version 9000 currently on the market. Nahhhh

    Vox or Hyperion


    And is putting the Dip in a titanium can safe? Or will it damage the material....stainless steel only?


    Looks like I need to start weighing my centerfire cans because I’ve shot a lot of rounds though some of mine

    In reality, I may never have to clean my ONLY can if I only use it once or twice a year.

    Does that make me a fudd?
