Wildcat top of the list at £149.  Other suggestions appreciated.  Please do not suggest Barton !!!

Interested to know why not Barton? I only ask as I have run a dm80 since getting the hornet and it's good but tried out a BGW 17 rimfire mod a few days ago and, although moderation wasn't as good; to be expected when using a small rimfire mod, it handles the increased pressure without a problem and also tightened up my group sizes.

It does seem like quite a bad experience and your preference justified. To counter, I have a couple of the BGW mods and everything has been perfect. I use the bgw on the 243 when stalking as it's so light compared to my MAE. However, when foxing I'll put the MAE on as the noise reduction is superior. The little 17 rimfire mod I tried was excellent, threads perfectly.

However, personal experiences understandably taint ones future approach, that I understand having had a few myself over the years.
