But can you see the impacts?

    That is freakin' awesome!!! I am happy with MOA groups at 300 with my hunting rifle. I really like the brake on it also. Noisy but sure tames a light rifle.

    I've been been shooting my Rem 700 5R now for about 200 rounds with an Elk Meadow Performance Titanium brake. I believe this is shown earlier in this thread. I'll have to say it's a great design. No POI change with or without, same accuracy, and most interestingly, I can see feel very little difference in blast with or without the brake out of the 24" barrel. Maybe im just getting conditioned but I have not exerienced this with my other braked rifles. I had been shooting this rifle without the brake and it's now nice to be able to see impacts. The only difference I have seen is that there could be an effect in sound signature as I have to move my Superchrono Accoustic Chronograph a few yards further out to get good readings. No effect on my Ohler 35 though.

    I use both muzzle brake (Hdp) and sometimes a silencer (Stocker 250) on my 300 WM while hunting in Norway or Sweden. They a working fantastically, feels like shooting an airgun! I can strongly recommend it.
