Thread: To mod or not to mod, that is the question!

  1. #1

    To mod or not to mod, that is the question!

    I have a lovely Remington 700 SPS with a whopping T8 mod slapped on the end. Now is it really worth while me keeping this on as it does add a fair weight and as I have short legs does tend to drag through stuff. I wear EP4 ear plugs anyway and the land I shoot on is a very close friend so no restrictions on noise etc so my big question is to keep it on or take it off and only use on estates that require it which won't be for a while as plenty of deer on current permissions and not a lot of spare cash to travel around!

    Lol it's about 6 weeks old and had about 60 shots through it! So when I get my ticket back I might put it up on here

    Have you tried a few shots without the mod on?
    A lot more muzzle flip!
    ​" How Much !"

    I have kept my .270 mod free, much nicer to carry, shoot, clean etc etc!
    just sold my .243 that had a mod, horrible thing to carry, too long to be muzzle down in anything other than short grass, too top heavy to carry muzzle up!

    am in the process of "modding" a .222 but it will have a shorter barrel for this reason

    It's a sad thing to say but many shooters simply cannot manage the recoil pulse and it's muzzle rise etc without the use of such aids as Moderators or brakes. perhaps it's time to learn to shoot properly once again. Kick off the training wheels .

    mod on rimfire and .223 but my 30-06 just feels wrong with one!

    Saying that if you need to use one for noise polluons try something a bit more compact than a T8 (roedale or a-tec?)

    There may be some but you won't find many estates that require you to use a mod, you don't say what calibre but do you find the recoil excessive without the mod.
    You say no restrictions on noise, but is the noise of rifle shots likely to disturb residents or other users of the area.

    What type of deer are you stalking are they herding species are you likely to get multiple shots at a group from the one position.



    If the answer to all of the above is no get rid you don't need a mod.

    never had a problem taking two (or even three shots) at red hinds without a moderator. in practice the echoing of sonic boom can appear very difficult to to pinpoint and red hinds will often whirl around trying to locate the source.
    the second might be easier for them.

    Shot a buck with an unmoderated .270 couple of weeks ago and probably could have shot the accompanying doe as well as it was confused and stood for a few seconds.

    I had a .243 with a PES T12 (600g? not sure) wasnt aware of any less recoil with it on, but then I wasnt bracing myself for some Nitro Express madness so probably wasnt thinking about it.
