Thread: .30 cal ??

    .30 cal ??

    hi all,
    been looking at 2nd hand moderators , lots say up to .30cal . but what do they fit ??
    sounds a daft thing to ask, but with the metric/imperial calibres available its not so clear cut
    better to ask than blow 1 up !!! me thinks

    What calibre are you wanting it for ? ,anything up to .30 would cover lots of calibres but not necessarily going to give you the best performance,eg if it's a .243 then you'd be better getting a mod say up to 6.5mm,but you could use a 30 cal mod on a .243 no probs.

    I use my .30 moderator on my 30.06 and .243

    Weecornishman as a general rule .30 calibre is taken as .308" diameter or 7.62mm.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    .308 is what I was looking to put it on , the mod I have is a muzzle can type but is stamped .308 , I would like to change it for a reflex type , with the aim to shortening the overall length
    so should I get a .30 cal mod or would that leave no clearance space for the bullet to pass through ??????
    or do I need something bigger to go on it????

    thanks all

    Why don't you just ask the retailer for a moderator to fit on a .308win rifle if you don't understand the sizing, I'm sure that they will sort you out.

    any 30cal will be fine, whether it's .308 or 30-06, as long as the threads are right for your cut on your barrel.

    A .30 cal mod will be just fine for a .308.
