Same bullet/multiple cartridge suppressor

Hi all,
I am looking to get into the world of suppressed rifles, I have a question regarding multiple cartridges/rifles though. I do a lot of prairie dog shooting and have multiple identical rifles set up for it aside from the cartridge. I have two 22-250 rems, two .220 swifts, and three 5.56/.223 rem setups. My question is, being that all 3 use the same size bullet (.224) can the same "can" be used on all of the setups or will suppressors designed for the 5.56/.223 be affected by the different pressures/velocities/etc of the swift and 22-250?
Just a little overcomplicating in my head maybe, but thanks in advance

If you get a suppressor designed for the .220, it will work on everything down to .22 LR. You'd be best off calling the manufacturer, but the 220 swift is about 8000 psi higher than the .223 (.22-250 is about 10,000 higher) from what I quickly looked up. It'd probably depend on the manufacturer, or even end up being a custom job. You don't want to add a grenade to the end of your rifle. See what .22-250 suppressors are available. The suppressors aren't exactly bore diameter, and even overbore suppressors do work to an extent. My buddy uses a .45 ACP suppressor on his 10-22. With certain ammo (rem subsonic, wolf subsonic) it works just fine. It's quieter than my springer.

A lot of folks run 7.62 cans on 5.56 guns to good effect... consider it an option, but consult the manufacturer.

He's looking for a high pressure suppressor. If it's a 7.62 can it would probably be rated for .308, but maybe not. Maybe consider suppressing the 5.56 only? That would be best anyway as the higher pressure would increase noise, correct? I understand the want, though. I'm a fan of versatility too.

http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.ht...&f=20&t=318715 There is some commentary that YHM suppressors are OK with .22-250 per the manufacturer. Their .308s are OK too.

The YHM titanium .30cal Phantom QD would probably be perfect for the op's needs.

I appreciate the replies and advise. Like Chewie said, was looking for the most versatility out of 1 can as possible. I'll be looking into perhaps multiple cans just to keep everything in order and minimize the negative effects of the higher pressure loads through a can not specifically designed for the application. Now I just need to get the paperwork all done and look into threading all those barrels, that'll be another topic...
