Re: Muzzle Brake on a 270
The design of the stock will have a major bearing on preceived recoil. Drop at the point of comb and at the heel. Length of pull. Weight of the rifle. Whether the stock wears a metal butt plate or a Decelerator Pad. Putting a rifle, designed stock wise for your average 5'10 1/2"-5'11" person, in the hands of a 5'5" child is asking for it. Stocks made for those of smaller stature, as well as for those of larger stature, solve alot of problems. A muzzle break won't 'fix' a poorly fit stock. That is the biggest mistake I see, and at this time of year I see it all to often coming through the door at my shop. I had a customer have me install a break on a 6mmAI. If there was a difference, it was so minor that it was hard to tell.
