Re: Muzzle Brake
I agree a more scientific comparison would be very useful (and apparently never done before?)-Magazine article for the future Rifle shooter Mag?
It would not be that difficult, the equipment to measure the impulse over time and Sound is easy, just use the same rifle, same cartridge and change only the brakes.
It is not necessary to introduce other variables like stock fit, weight of rifle, etc. just the brake if one wanted to keep is ASAP for a 1st go round. You could very usefully expand the experiment though!
How about the above brakes on a 22-250, 270 and 338 win mag, light med and heavy bullets, typical rifle with scope weights.
My physics guess is that something like the JP enterprises brake would do very well because it provides a big surface area for the escaping gasses to push the rifle away from the shooter, counter acting the normal recoil.
How about it Rifle shooter?
