  1. A pair this evening shortly after dropping a nice Muntjac buck. 277
  2. Replaced with a Wildcat Evo, so far very impressed. Its lighter and a good bit quieter too, not overly keen on the anodised end but other than that I am pleased with it.
  3. It was proofed with the rifle as the rifle had been screw cut and legally to sell on it has to be proofed, is my understanding. This was on my 22-250 not the .243 I just have the same mod on that. The clamp marks look like its been held and twisted more a scratch mark. I sore the gun before it went off and that mark wasn’t there . I have heard may tales of the proofing chaps being very heavy handed with stuff. In regards to use It was snugly nipped up on the barrel, the shot taken hit its mark and there were no obvious noise differences or other oddities. Also shooting factory Winchester loads. Will open it up this evening and have a look inside see if it tells me anything.
  4. Not sure on the age, it was proofed just before I bought it with the gun off a mate of mine. It had some what looked like clamp marks on it when it came back from proofing with the gun. Probably had maybe 50/60 rounds through it since then. Ive the same Mod on my .243, hope its not a common issue with these. Will open it up later and have a look see, i mean the shot found its mark so I don’t think its struck the inside or anything like that, just pressure/heat cycle related I think
  5. So was out earlier with the 22-250 and took a couple of shots, after the second I noticed my A-Tec Maxim mod had cracked open just after the barrel. Has anyone experienced this before ?

  12. A pair on the lawn this week. One with the 22-250 on way back from foxing and one with the air rifle this morning. Seeing an increase in numbers again now. 876
