Re: Muzzel brakes

I have 3 Vais brakes on my rifles! They work great. I have one on my 30-06, 338 RUM, and one on my custom 6.5-06AI. They work great. I was at the range and a gentleman showed up the a 300WM with another brake and the concussion was horrendous!!

Re: Muzzel brakes

I'll second the Vais. I have a Vais on my .338 RUM, and a Magnaported 7-08. The blast on the adjoining shooter is worse with the 7-08, even tough the powder being burned is less than half. Assuming that blast = noise, the Vais is substantially quieter.

ALL brakes are noisey, so don't expect anything less. I shoot mine with plugs AND muffs. It's more comforatble that way, NOTHING bugs me!

Re: Muzzel brakes

I have had custom brakes from High Performance Gunsmithing in Hamilton, MT (www.muzzlebrake.com) put slimline muzzlebrakes on 5 rifles - a .300 Weatherby, 7mm Weatherby and three 30-06's, mine and my two 13 year olds. These brakes are great not only do they reduce recoil so well that one of my boys, 85 lbs, can shoot a Remington Mountain Rifle in 30-06 all day long, but they are perfectly countoured and finish matched to your barrel. Kevin Knight at HPG will recrown your barrel and put a matching crown on the brake. They also provide a knurled muzzle cap if you want to shoot without the brake. You can't even tell where the barrel ends and the brake begins. Very nice in all respects.

I have had Kevin brake and accurize all my rifles and I'm very happy with all of the improvements.

Good luck
