which baffles will be better

Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

I am purchasing a kit from White Trash Tac., and I am not sure which baffles would be better. I can get 50 or 60 degree baffles or stepped ones.
The rifles will be a 300 Mag. and a 6.5 Mannlicher. The tube will be 7 1/2 inches with 2 stainless baffles and the remainder in titanium. In your knowledgeable opinion it this a good set up?

I don't think you can fit enough baffles into a 7.5" tube for suppression of the 300wm. A nine or ten inch suppressor @ two inches wide would be more appropriate. I would use 17-4 K baffles that have been welded together or carbon steel,either being heat treated. Titanium would be a good choice if you paced your shots.These will also fair better with extensive welding.
Check out the completed builds section. I know of at least one 300 build that featured step type baffles.
The only reason after 243 years the government now wants to disarm you is they intend to do something you would shoot them for!

As the good Cpt said, a longer tube would be much better. I would shoot for 8.5"min.
50's are better w/ HV centerfire ammo
Progressively space them, like .75 .7 .65 .6 .55, etc
2 HT 17-4 followed by Ti should be fine.
