Now I know there are loads of posts on here about which mod to go for (I have had a search and a read around) but I cant find any that answer my specific question...
I've had my Blaser R93 for a little while now, and still havent purchased the mod to go on the end of it. I know a lot is down to personal preference, and in my case, I'm sick of lugging a big heavy T8 around on the end of my gun, so I'm looking for something as small and light as possible.
When I bought the gun Gregor from Mcleouds in Tain advised me that I shouldn't bother with a small mod as the .308 produces a lot of gas and the little ones can't really cope with it. He reckoned a big mod like the predator or wildcat was the one to go for, but I'm tending to disagree.
I know it sounds plausible, but I also think it sounds a bit far fetched and I know plenty of people shoot very small and light mods on bigger calibres. Even if it is a trade-off between size and efficacy, I'm not too bothered by the sound or recoil even without the mod so any decrease is good for me.
So, long story short... Is the above a load of rubbish or should I shut up and listen to someone who has been in this game a lot longer than me?! What small, lightweight mod are you shooting with acceptable results on your .308?
