Canted muzzlebrake

Hi

I just got my rifle back from the smith, busy at work so havent been in the field with it yet.
I got a muzzlebrake installed on it, but as far as I can see its slightly canted, maybe 0.010 - 0.020"

What effekts will that have?

Will it jerk shots?

    It won't have any effect, other than looks.

    Is it past straight? Or, can you just tighten it a bit more?

    Heat will get it to loosen if you really need to get it off. If you're not worried about it other than looks leave it alone.

    As already stated it doesnt effect anything. Mine is slightly off too. It goes just past "center" . Besides being irritating to look at it works great. From what I understand it is very difficult to get a threaded muzzle break perfectly centered.

    If you need to correct rotation, you could use some dental floss between the brake and the barrel. Also aluminum foil carefully trimmed could be made into a shim.
