Thread: Hypothetical question - moderators in the wet.

    Hypothetical question - moderators in the wet.

    Scenario:

    I have been stalking in heavy rain for a couple of hours carrying the rifle muzzle-down.

    My moderator's rear bush is away for re-boring as I have changes rifle.

    Suddenly a snap shot opportunity presents itself as a deer is 40 yards away, looking away from me.

    I swing the rifle into the shoulder get a good sight picture and hold.

    I squeeze the trigger.

    Does my moderator blow up?

    How could it? If it is an over-the-barrel type with a bush no gas comes out of the back!

    As per MS - if the thread fit at the muzzle was lose enough to let water past, you'd be getting gas blow past.
