    moderator choice

    Hi
    I have a widcat moderator in 30 cal on my 308. I am thinking about swapping it for an ase northstar in 30 cal . Does anyone have experience of both mods and have any comments. Also could both of these be used pn a 243

    I have had the wildcat on my 308 and i now have the ase northstar.

    I prefer the northstar as it is slightly lighter and more compact, very little difference in noise reduction.

    As you know the wildcat is stripable but the northstar is not.

    Hope this helps steve

    I also own both but if i had to keep just one then the northstar gets the vote as mentioned no difference in noise reduction and the northstar is not stripable but its stainless and willl probably last forever!!!!!!

    oh! and to their use on a 243 they will be fine I use both my 30 cal mods on my 17 remington and also used them on 243 with no problems!!!

    i do like ASE mods. not used a northstar though but the jetz on my 7mm does a good job.

    My northstar does a great job with the .270. And although it isn't strippable - a quick blast of WD40 after each outing keeps it sweet. I do envy a mate of mine with a seemingly weightless ali mod.

    Are we talking here about the A-Tech mod if so has anyone any experience of them ? I would have one but not sure if they will last . Using Northstar on .270 having changed from T8 can find no major difference think the T8 was slightly quieter but liked the idea of the stainless Northstar.
