Re: muzzlebrake!

I got a call today from a fellow who had a Gentry "quiet brake" installed 15 years ago. He took the quiet part literally and said he wore plugs durring range time but never hunting. This past year he had a major ear surgery to try and repair the damage, Not sure if he had cochlear implants or what.

Now he said shooting causes actual pain, and wants the brake removed.

I didn't get the whole story but this is a good example why we should ALWAYS wear ear plugs.

I always have a pair with me even when hunting with an unbraked gun, and if time allows will use them. I am much more serious about using them when a braked gun is involved.

    All brakes are loud, don't let anyone fool you. I pack earplugs when hunting also. When you are shooting at 1000 yards you will have time to put them in. Best part about them is making it possible to spot your own shots. Check these out, great price and design Triple X 1" muzzle Brake

    There's nothing wrong with breaks. You should be wearing ear protection regardless your gun has a break or not, hunting or not. I've seen people that have lost their hearing ability because they're diesel engine mechanics and prolonged exposure to that even causes hearing loss... My opinion

    If those are the Ross Schuller brakes be careful, I've had 3 people order my brakes complaining that Ross's were soft and the ports eroded before the barrel was at it's half life. Specifically some referred to them as a pc of edit.

    But for the guys who don't shoot much go for it.

    My one and only "Muzzle Broke" rifle....338LM. Kind of a necessary evil for a big thumper. This one is a Badger FTE.....ugly as hell, but very effective.

    I did shoot an antelope without earplugs with it during the heat of the battle a year or so ago....never again......grin!

    Testament to its effectivness...to me it makes the recoil of the Lapua feel more like a 25/06 or so..
