OK chaps Ė I need your advice. Although Iíve had one on a .22 for many years, Iíve never used a moderator on a deer rifle. Having heard so many positive reports about their use, Iíve ordered a T8 moderator for my 6.5x55 Sako. But, Iím having doubts. The question is not whether to have a moderator (I have already fixed on that decision) but rather, which to have. The T8 seems to be very popular, but there are some excellent stats on the PES 12 Stainless.
Rust seems to be quite problem with moderators, and the idea of having the PESís dismantling ability attracts me. Stainless steel would seem to be logical too. If it looks a bit bright, I can simply cover it with a neoprene sleeve.
Some input from members would be appreciated.
