I like your rifle by the way I was thinking about a kdf style brake or similar the guy at kdf were courteous when I talked to them
The vias break are nice I just don't care for them shooting Prone lots of dirt blown back in your face. I am going with a APA fat bastard for my new build. It was between it and the muscle break.

Lasted well beyound what is considered acceptable barrel life and cleaned super easy. I went with Brux becuase it was in stock and I didnt have to wait 7 months to get the Krieger.
34 on a lupy improved should be good for north of 3100 FPS.
