Collect it all and weigh it with a gram scale. It would be interesting to know how much lead that actually is.

Man, I'm surprised there was that much. Maybe just the different baffle designs but my Sparrow stack had far less crud after a similar amount of rounds. I mainly use the remington golden bullets and occasionally the remington subsonics. Either way, I agree with the take apart cans. No way i would ever buy a sealed rimfire can.

Buildup is dependent on the baffle stack design. Some collect it(Omega), some repel(Sparrow/Osprey).

bender, have you noticed a difference in buildup in cans that were s--t wet vice dry.

It appears to me the OP's specter was shot wet.

I have yet to put any type of media in the specter....its always been dry :D
Heck the Spectre is so quite on the host I have ran it on....dont see how wetting the can would make it any better.

WOW! That's a lot of crud. I have always dipped the Spectre whole before pulling it apart. It never looked like it had that much junk in it. I'm kind of an abuser and shoot about 4 or 5 bricks before cleaning.

That Spectre was shot dry, there is a difference but not a huge one with a 22lr when shot wet vs dry.

Now centerfire pistol suppressors are another story, the second you shoot a pistol can wet its all over it will continue to collect gunk alot more rapidly than if it had never been shot wet. That one wetting unless shot many many many rounds to thoroughly dry it will be a magnet the next time you shoot it dry, because it is still moist and ready to collect gunk. This is why its so important to jailbreak it as soon as possible if you intend to put alot of rounds through it or want to shoot it wet.

The thing I love about omegas is that they are easy to clean. The parallel-to-bore design allows you to clean the innards with a drill press.

Omegas collect ALOT of gunk, and the design makes it easy to clean!

I'm talking ~5 seconds per baffle one you get the jig and press set up. Most the lead stays in the inner core, and a 13mm bit (don't quote me on this) will pull it right out. No dip. No wire brush.

I was suprised also Chris how easy it came apart. When I first got the Spectre, I dissasembled it to see what it it looked like in side. I spayed the baffles and inner tube with Hornady One Shot lube and let it dry. Applied Mecury 2-4-C with teflon to the threads on the caps. The caps came off with little effort and the baffle stack pushed rt. out. The crude on the out side pretty much just fell right off. The lead on the inside of the baffles was a different story :)

Better in the can than in the gun/ mags. K Baffles clean easy in a sonic cleaner with no dust.

I did that once.....never again. I had a hell of a time getting mine apart. I bet you had fun doing the same :) I make sure I clean mine around the 500 mark.

Nah, actually the baffle stack just pushed right out. I was really suprised how easy it was to take apart, especially after reading on here how some people had to battle other brands. :) :)

I shot mine dry too but on a M-11/22 SMG with RGB or CCI MM. I'm surprised about getting the blast baffle out so easy. After 1000 rounds, my blast baffle is encased in lead in the mount. Both pushers SWR made do not work on the blast baffle as there is no ledge for it to push against. I would need to let the dip work on it for a day after 1500 rounds before I can get the blast baffle out of the mount.

I don't know what 1500 rounds looks like as I'm not able to open it with out a night in the dip.

I wonder if the host u was running the Spectre on had any thing to do with soldered the the blast baffle to the the cap with lead. Mine was ran on bolt guns and a coule different pistols. Just a thought :)

Looks like the "Mercury Power Tune" is a spray...what did you use in the ultrasonic cleaner?
