I have a .223 Suppressor, Would I be able to use this on a .22 Mag rifle?

If this is a sealed can, it could become clogged with leading over time.

Thanks for all your help. The can is able to be disassembled for cleaning, Will I loose much in the way of velocity?

It won't hurt velocity unless you have baffle strikes, then you have more to worry about than velocity.

If you can take apart your 223 suppressor for cleaning, you should have no problems shooting .22 in it.

Even if you can't, it will take an very large number of rounds to gunk up a .223 can. I think if you alternate .223 and .22, the blast from the centerfire caliber will knock some of it out. Worse case, dump it in an ultrasonic cleaner for 5 minutes.
