If you want to buy a suppressor the best bang for your buck to start with is a USER SERVICEABLE ( take apart ) 22lr can. Do the research there is a difference between brands you want to get the one that does the best at what it does.
You can use a suppressor on any smaller caliber as long as it is within specks for pressure. Again do NOT use any sealed large caliber suppressor on a 22lr.
Yeah, Maine's info here is a good supplement to what I said. It's been so long since I've seen a sealed silencer that I forgot they were even still for sale. Do keep an eye out.
Realistically, just avoid sealed cans. The ones that are user serviceable are often marked working for lots of calibers. This one
from the local-to-me manufacturer says you can use it with 5.56, 5.45, .22 Hornet, .22 LR, .22 WMR, .17 HMR, and .17 Mach 2.
