JP or Defensive Edge?

I want the most effective muzzlebrake to use for range use and varmints. I will remove the brake when hunting, so noise is not an issue. Also, I don't find the JP to be especially "ugly", or the Defensive Edge. Which one would be the best choice to see hits through a scope?

I'm also open to other models if there is a more effective brake available.

    I would add Holland's to the mix and Kirby makes a brake for some of his big boy cartridges as well.

    What chambering?

    6mm Ackley (yes I know I don't "need" one), and then if I like it hopefully for a bigger caliber long range gun, such as 7mm STW or 300 RUM.

    Where can I see Kirby's brake?

    Go with the DE brake, the JP looks like you welded a taco to your bbl!!!!!!

    The DE works amazingly well, i am very impressed with both of the ones that i have used. BJ used a JP for a while and it did work pretty dang good but damn it was ugly!!

    If I had the brake set up for a 7mm bullet would it be effective on the 6mm too? I don't need lots of recoil relief from the 6mm, but any would be helpful, along with taking away muzzle rise.

    If your barrel is set up and threaded properly and the brake is built well you will only need a bullet hole abot .030"-.040" over the bullet diameter , I have seen sevaral mass produced brakes that came with a pre reamed bullet hole that was .100" over bullet diameter.

    So yes the same brake will work on your 6mm that works on your 7mm , if you setup some fance measuring equiptment that could tell the differance between a bullet hole that .030" over and one that is .100" over , then that would be the only way to tell.
