    .30 moderator on 22-250 Rifle

    Can a .308 proofed moderator be used safely on a 22-250 rifle? Will there be any difference in muzzle noise than from a similar moderator proofed for 22-250? I hope the question makes sense.

    yes and yes
    the 8.5mm+ bore on a .30cal proofed mod will not moderate a .224 cal bullet as well as a moderator with a smaller bore but it is unlikely you will know the difference unless tested alongside a smaller bore one.

    certainly not enough to justify dropping several hundred pounds on another calibre specific one IMO

    Cheers bewsher500 .So it would make sense for me to get a .308 proofed moderator and it could be interchanged safely on both rifles.. Money in the pocket for a days stalking thanks.

    I would, other may go for dedicated closer matching one
    (I have one PES T12 that I use on everything from .17, .22, .222 and .243)

    Just zeroed a 25 cal north star on the 223. Much quieter than the same in 30 cal I had for the 308
