Will the muzzle brake
help quiet at long range?
Some of you may know I’m a deaf shooter and sometimes I find that hard to believe that animals at long range will not hear the gun shots. They might not be alarmed but they do hear gun shots, don’t they? I was watching a hunting show on TV and a hunter and a guide spotted two mule deer over the hills. There are many hills in this area. The deer weren’t together, they were about 100 yards part. Two mule deer were standing on two different hills. The hunter shot the mule deer at the downhill about 75 yards and the other deer was on the uphill. He missed the shot and the deer ran away on the opposite direction where other deer was. The guide told him that there was another deer on the other side of the hill so they sneaked up the hill and the deer was eating and calm on the side of the hill. The deer hadn’t heard a shot that the hunter shot a minute ago. The deer wasn’t alarmed. How could that be? Do the hills block or reduce the sound waves?
My dad sometimes told me that he heard several shots about 3 miles away. If that is true, will the animals within 3 miles radius hear the shots?
The muzzle brake will help reduce the sound “Bang” at long range but very loud at where you shoot. Do you agree? How do I know that? Well…use common sense. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
