    I have a 527 varmint in .17 hornet. I think they are 1/2" thread. I had mine cut to 20" and re threaded 1/2" then re crowned by DM80. I also had a custom mod done for it by DM80, it is very quiet. I like the calibre a lot it is very flat shooting but can be a little wind affected. Basically i use mine for rabbits etc at night with night vision, with the bonus of if a fox appears it is more than capable of killing it. If i was you i would get Dave to make you a mod for it as his are calibre specific, very quiet, light weight and strippable for cleaning. Oh! and cheaper than other mods that don't work too well.

    Think I have a rimmy mod on my 17AH, very light and tiny. Proofed for 17AH so no issues.

    I recently tried my Swift Precision Nightingale on a buddy's 17 Hornet, and it was as quiet as his significantly larger new Wildcat Evolution (both mods with small apertures for .17 cal).
    Both mods made the Hornet more or less as quiet as my modded HMR.

    All of my CZs are threaded 1/2 x 20 (standard Parker Hale) including my 527 in 222.

    Would not think a rimfire moderator would be safe to use on a centrefire round, two totally different beasts in terms of pressure.
