Thread: A-Tec or Roedale ????

  1. #1

    A-Tec or Roedale ????

    Lads i'm looking to put a light weight moderator on my .270,the roedale lightweight and the a-tec seem to fit the bill,just wondering which of these aluminium cans are the best.Both come in around 200grams,which is nearly unbelievable.

    Cheers...

    I have an A-Tec and if i were you i would not buy one .

    If they were 100 then yes they are good ! But mine gas cut with my .260, after 15 round's it looked used.

    Can't speak for the Roedale not even seen one.

    I have a ASE S5 and while it has more weight it still looks new. i would look at the new lighter ASE SL5

    I have the ATEC on my 270 and I'm really pleased with it. I know there are several people that have spoken of gas cutting - perhaps I am a fortunate one.....
    Looked at the Roedale, but have not tested one - customer service can apparently be ..... more challenging..... in some cases.

    There seem to be very mixed reports, a good customer of mine just reported that he added one extra baffle on to his A-tec and
    the mod has been working fine with 600 rounds 270 win, he mostly uses hornady factory stuff.
    Others have to throw them away after a handfull of rounds???? don't believe it.
    I have a few alu Roedale mods but have not more than maybe 250 rounds 223, 150 308 rounds and maybe 60 243 rounds through them.
    Wear is at zero, I even use them at competitions with around 15 fairly fast shot rounds / run 243/308. (target up 3 sec/ every ~5 sec)

    Thanks for the replies,but I'm still none the wiser men,i've read very mixed reports on both moderators which is very strange,my rfd is reccomending the A-Tec but he dosn't stock the Roedale,so thats no real help, 300 quid is not to be sniffed at ,and i've read reports of the A-tec showing signs of burn after 15 rounds ?????

    Hi I had a cmm4 on a 308 and it was ok but I changed to an tec maxim and got the best of both worlds IMHO similar price 250 ish and only 370 gr in weight but with stainless steel baffle plates to eliminate the gas cutting modular in design and its over barrel as well to keep the rifle as short as possible brilliant!!!and well worth a look

    heres a link to a previous thread with some photos

    Yes, but does it still work and how many rounds have you put through it to date?

    I too went for the Maxim on my 270. Dennis Groom at Jacksons suggested not stripping it down regularly for cleaning though as it can effect the performance if each time you do it it's not done up to the same tightness each time thereafter, if that makes sence. Now I just intend stripping it once a month to keep check on any gas cutting, nothing seen to date. In its modular form any worn parts can be changed. As a result I now have a mod which I am 100% happy with and one which balances my rifle well.

    I have one on my .260. I can no longer strip it all the way but have put about 300 rounds or more through it so far.
    Am sure it's cutting and there is lot's of carbon in there but it still works, it's light and doesn't upset the balance.

    Not a bad piece of kit and I sincerely doubt they're cutting to the point of being unusable after 15 rounds!
    To be honest, if you expected it to last as long as an ASE Northstar you're kidding yourself.

    What about one of the Ti jobs from Lawrence or 3rd Eye Tactical?
