    wildcat pred .243 drill out for .270 ?

    Hello....i have a .243 wildcat pred 8...now is it possible to drill the baffel section out to fit .270 and use it for both to save having to swap inserts....cheers

    sure it is
    its just a case of bore
    I would want someone to do it on a lathe rather than with a black and decker though

    DONT BE STINGY, just order a .270 diffuser unit and stick with it.

    Why ? maybe for the uneducated that would be the way to go..but if you have the facilities and capabilities why pay a company to do exactly what you can do...the .270 insert is just that...a bored out .243 to .270 spec and will take about 2 mins to do on a lathe....

    Although i am now wanting a much lighter moderator for the .270

    I've got a used but OK .270 diffuser for a Predator mod' knocking around the gun room somewhere that is no use to me any more - drop me a PM if you want it.

    I've also got a .224 diffuser, a 5/8"x20 thread unit and a 14x1 thread unit I think, also surplus to requirements.

    Edit: I've got 2-3 rear bushings too.

    Adam.
