Re: To muzzle brake or not to muzzle brake?
I don,t like muzzle brakes but there is definitely a place for them and this sounds like one.
Get an adjustable butt stock, shoot lighter bullets , reduce the loads especially when shooting targets,
Place a good quiet brake (Something like the Vias and train your kids to use ear protection all
the time). Later on you can replace the brake with a barrel nut if you wan,t to.
When going hunting you can boost the load a little and they will never know it under hunting conditions
because of the Adrenalin.
The nice thing about the 280 is ,they can grow into it and never be handicapped with to little gun.
Just my opinion
