Break Question...

I am at the tail end of a 300RUM build and have setteled on one of two breaks and would like some advise. I like the Pain Killer break and like the 3 holes on top. My question about it is when the bullet exits the barrel the gasses escape through all the openings in the break, would the uneven dispursion of gas through the top holes effect the flight? If I am not making sence please set me streight. Thank's for your input......Rick.....

Brake, it's called a muzzle brake.

Re: Break Question...

The bullet is in front of the gases so it is hard to distort it's flight pattern with a brake unless the bullet strikes the bore in the brake.
