I am working on a cone baffle for a 22lr suppressor. I have the form 1 completed and in hand, BTW. I want to keep the parts count down by making the cones with integral skirts but am having a heck of a time with boring that deep and small. Should I just make the cones and skirts separate and be done with it? I got these done but the 1/4" bore still needs to be reamed or bored, and boring it while still on the bar is better for concentricity. I just can't see how to get that deep, that precisely, to open a .025" hole to about .028" without using a very thin tool...which will flex/chatter/etc. I need 8 of the aluminum ones shown on the far right of the pic. The tube is 1" OD and the bore on the cone is 1/4" for reference.
