Fiftydriver is correct! I have a 500 NE 31/4'' double that has a suppressor in the stock it adds weight to the rifle and it also reduces the inertia of the recoil. Muzzle brakes
work more efficiently on rifles that chambered for the large capacity rounds examples of this is the various 300 mags, 30-378, 50 bmg and so forth. I had a 458 Lott that I added weight and muzzle brake
, that brought the weight up to 10lbs. Now I had a rifle that had more muzzle blast and still scrambled my eggs.
The rifle has been rebarreled and in now a 404 Jeffery.
