Hi folks, I was wondering if you can clear something up or offer advice.
I was speaking to one of my shooting buddies the other night. He went in to his local rfd to change over his well used and decidedly dead moderator for his .270. It's been a while since he'd done changed anything on his shooting rig (he is rather tight fisted I might add.....).
He was told that to replace/swap his moderator for a new one, he would have to do a 1-4-1 variation.
If this is the case for him, it may mean a 3 month wait for the variation and no shooting since his .270 is his one and only rifle, and the moderator had been entered on his licence with a make, model, pitch thread. His land owner insists on all rifles to be moderated.
If this is the case, should we all have 2 moderators for each rifle since there is a good chance that the moderator will "wear out" before the rifle will?
