One of our syndicate was stalking on Sunday when he spotted a Doe & kid on some clearfell.
When he shot at the Doe the moderator (a T eight) flew off the rifle (.223), the shot killed the doe, he reloaded and then shot the kid! When he picked up the moderator he found it had (his words) flattened the threads on the barrel, or stripped I presume.
What do you think could have caused it, the moderator has been on the rifle for a couple of years, it has not blown out the moddy.
What I find strange is that the point of impact could not have altered too much when he shot the kid, on my rifle the point of impact is 11" different. I should say he is not prone to exagerate.
