IF you've already made the baffle forming tools, and if the barrel in question is already threaded at its muzzle. The biggest PITA, really, is making the damned blast-diffuser for the rear of the can. That alone takes nearly 2 hours. When you first fire 10-20 rds thru the can, the hammer blows of the firing will compress the screenwire "donut" baffles, shoving them forward, letting the metal diffuser have about 1" or more of room to slop around in the rear of the can, (back and forth) That's WASTED space, which should of course be filled with baffling.

Squirt some WD-40 into the rear of the can, so that the baffles will move more easily, set the rear of the can on a pc of wood or aluminum sheeting, and use a hammer and the "piston" from the baffle forming tool kit (cause it's of course the perfect size for the job) to beat the baffling back tight against the diffuser, make another couple of baffles, and assemble them to the front of the can. Then tesfire it again for 10 or so rds, and repeat if necessary. After this bit of "extra" work, your can is then good for many hundreds of rds of 223, without further hassle or worry.
