Re: muzzle brake v's accuracy
There is another thing....think of your brake as a tuner...just not adjustible. You are effectivly hanging a weight out past the effective end of the bbl....just like a tuner. My 1000 yard comp guns needed two differant loads....one with the break, and one without. I shot the same gun in both lite gun and heavy gun (HG rules do not let you use a brake) class. I found that I could get my gun to shoot better if I tweaked the load for the gun w/o the brake. On the other hand...it would not shoot quite as good if I shot the unbraked loads with the brake installed.
Try a few more differant loads. If you are getting no better that 1 MOA, try WAY different loads.
More likely than not Cowboy is right, because going from no better that 1 moa down to 1/4 moa (I assume you did 1/4 moa more than once??????) is quit a change. But, on the other hand ,I have seen 1 click on a tuner make a world of differance on target.
Just my .02....based on my comp gun.....my guess is that a hunting gun could do the same thing.
