Re: Muzzle brakes

KDF and then Vias next.

I have tried a lot of them in my 3 378 Wbies my 416 wby and so on. Nothing at all works better thatn these two unless they are new in the market. The vias is a bit quiter btw.

Re: Muzzle brakes

I agree, I have a 338 Ultra and I have a Vias on mine and it works awesome. i also just had another rifle built and had it put on that gun also, I had it put my last rifle for other reasons.

Re: Muzzle brakes

I have had 4 vias breaks and they work good but they don't work as good as the tank style breaks. I think the JP's are hard to beat on a bench gun. If weight is a concern try the holland they seem to be about the right size on hunting rifles.

Re: Muzzle brakes

I have 7 different kinds of brakes. It is really hard to tell any of them apart, I am bias for the Vias because the guy has given me such good service. They are all loud as hell until you start loosing your hearing, then they get quiter. I wear electronic ear muffs when ever I hunt with a gun that has a brake on it.

Re: Muzzle brakes

I have a Holland QD on a 8.5 lb. custom 338 RUM from Kirby and I really like it. Shooting in a t-shirt, I can get through about 1 1/2 - 2 boxs of shells before I want to start sucking my thumb, OH, I mean before it starts to bother me.

Re: Muzzle brakes

I've just had a custom brake done by S1 of ARtactical on my 300WM. It lowered the recoil to about a .243 level. The recoil never really bothered me before on this particular rifle, but I wanted to be able to see my shots at long range, and the brake helps get back on target quickly. It also has no holes on the bottom or top so the dust signature is not a problem. S1 does some very impressive machine work. Excuse the dust on the pic, this was after some range time before cleaning. Cowman [image]http://[/image]
