Re: To Muzzle Brake or not to Muzzle Brake
I find that I shoot more accurately if I do not have to subconsciously worry about getting hit in forehead by my scope. When I shoot prone, which is most of the time, I only put enough shoulder into the rifle to lightly preload the bipod or feel the forend against the rest stop, almost free recoil.
With a quality brake you do not have to hold onto the rifle like you were getting ready to wrestle with it.
I have brakes on all the rifles I shoot except the match rifles (NRA won't let me).
I have shot them all (well except one) with brake on and brake off, no difference in accuracy. Yes with some the POI is a little different, but they are usually shot brake on.
