Good if you clean every 50 rounds.

Do you own a rimfire can with AL baffles? Just curious. Having an opinion is completely acceptable. Wondering what is your experience.[/QUOTE]

No, I don't buy suppressors with Al baffles, kind of like I don't buy 2-ply tires.

I want to be able to clean my baffles with SS pins in a wet tumbler, but I don't want to be cleaning with media that is not softer than the baffles, which rules out both Al and SS baffles, as otherwise serviceable as those may be .

So to me the real question is, how much time do you want to spend cleaning baffles? Me, not so much any more.

I only asked because of your 50 rounds comment. Actually owning several rimfire cans, one of which has AL baffles, it doesn't match my experience. I really like the light weight sometimes. And if you know what you're doing AL isn't that much more difficult to clean than my SS baffles. I certainly wouldn't try to discourage anyone from getting what meets their needs.

The big thing with Ti baffles over aluminum is that you can clean them with wet SS pins in a tumbler, which is vastly better over any other way, and pretty cheap to set up.[/QUOTE]

+2 on this-- Much easier!

Yup, lots of options with Ti or SS, that aluminum simply does not offer.

As someone that has put almost 70k rounds of .22lr through suppressors, ability to clean them easily is important to me.
