    22 Hornet Moderator

    Hello all. I was reading about a 22 Hornet for sale that had a Parker Hale moderator. Are these up to the task or is a bigger one recommended. What's the consensus on the best for the Hornet?

    I've found a Wildcat Cub is as good as anything. The Hornet will make a bang whatever you use and quarry will always hear it. PH mods are OK but not as efficient as some of the modern models. However as I said you will always get a bang!

    Not sure I'd want to pull the trigger with a PH on the end, I'll try most things, but that doesn't sound very safe.
    Even a Sac would be better, at least they are rated for the hornet.

    I am running a short barrelled .222 with a one piece SAK
    works well

    One piece is the key IMO
    as much as the PH is well made and I doubt very much the pressure of a hornet could burst it or pop the cap its always worth removing that element

    put a few shots through it
    worst that can happen is you pop it!

    And the end cap makes 3. Lol
    I found once it had been in use for a while it sealed up fine for hornet use, but when brand new used to blow powder residue back out the rear flange where it met the outer sleeve, not going to do the scope objective a lot of good.
