    .270 moderator

    Hi all,

    Was hoping for some advice. I'm after a mod for my .270 and wanted peoples past experiences and if possible any data for the mods ie db reduction. I have reflex T8's on my .22/250 and .243 and the T4 on my hornet but as this rifle is a mannlicher schonaeur m72 it is quite a thin, slender rifle so I think a big chunky T8 would look a bit daft.

    Anybody help ?

    Oooow yes what a great sound it is too. What I would say Matt is be careful you don't unbalance the rifle. I put a T4 on one of my rifles and it is now a pain to carry around wanting to tip backwards from my shoulder. Gaz

    If you need to moderate, the ATEC Maxim works very nicely on my 270 - good moderation without excess weight, so still balances nicely and not huge to look odd

    Hi Matt, send it off to Dave at Valkerie rifles with 195, and it will come back with a lovely muzzle brake attached, properly timed in (90 degrees to upright) I had one fitted to my 7 RM and it's fantastic, half the recoil of when it had a sonic mod on, and a lot shorter and lighter. DO NOT forget to wear earplugs! Still sounds great and doesn't seem to spook deer anymore than a modded gun.

    I have the ASE Utra on my .270 & it tames it pretty well. I'm seriously considering leaving it off though, as I really don't like how it looks on the rifle. And in any case, I rarely fire many shots when I'm stalking so a loud bang every once in a blue moon won't be the end of the world (except for what it's pointed at, of course )

    I have am aimsport on my sauer 270. It's quite good and light. The t8 I had was good but is heavier and can upset the balance of some rifles. It was ok on a blaser.
