    works best if you fill it with gasoline first.

    If your can doesn't come apart, you cant clean the lead out of it.
    I pull mine apart every 500 rounds and scrape the lead off everything. If I wait much longer, its very hard to get apart.

    I have seen the insides of cans that don't come apart after about 10,000-15,000 rounds and they are pretty much blocks of lead with no baffles left in them. You have to send them back to the manufacturer to have them cleaned.
