Muzzle break

Putting together parts to build new LR shooter with Broughton 7.5 light varmint 5-C 1-10 twist 28 inch barrel .308 on Weatherby action in new manners MCS-TA stock.
Question is what muzzle break should I use for prone shooting??

Re: Muzzle break

You could do one of these also. Considering this for my next build or even for my current rifle: American Precision Arms

Give the Shrewd Varmint Brake a ride and you'll love it.

VARMINT BRAKE - Brownells

Very easy on the ears, side discharge, and virtually eliminates muzzle flip. I have on on my .260 and I can see my impacts even at 100yds.

Hey guys.. I am very sad right now. haha

I really like the Muscle brake and the Varmint brake that you have provided in the link above.. but my barrel is a little thinner than I thought it was. the barrel diameter is a ridiculous .604!!! Are their any muzzle brakes that will fit such a thin barrel?!

I haven't seen many of the inline brakes that are very effective other than this one.

OPS Muzzle Brake Stainless Installed

Extremely effective brake but brutal on the ears especially for anyone around you.

Just about any of them can be tapered down to match your barrel diameter and look nice.
