Re: Muzzle brakes

I really like the Holland Quick Discharge brake that I have. There are several reasons that I like it. One I can get a variety of sizes/diameters that will closely match my barrel size(Midway USA). There are three large horizontal ports that work very effectively. There are three small ports on the top to help eliminate barrel jump. There are no ports on the bottom that would blow up dust while shooting prone. I put mine on a Remington sps 30-06. Even with a sim's recoil pad, it was kicking nearly as hard as my Ruger 300 win mag. Not Acceptable!! After installing the muzzle brake I would say that the rifle kicks less than my 6mm Remington. I was elated with the results. Also, this brake does not seem super loud. When wearing my ear muffs there is no discernible difference in volume before or after having it installed. That being said a spotter might disagree.

Re: Muzzle brakes

The Holland Radial is even better than the QD brake.
