Thanks for all the feed back and info.

I'm sure that we wouldn't be fortunate enough that all Brake manufacturers use the same thread size so a guy could exchange and try different breaks if he didn't like it???

US standard for 223 is 1/2x28,
243/260/308= 5/8"-24
bigger than 308,IE 338 = 3/4-20 or 3/4-24

but if your "gunsmith" didn't stick with the standards, then you are SOL

Re: Muzzle breaks / are all equal

I put a Ross Schuler brake on my 300wsm about 2 months ago. I would never target shoot with it because of recoil, after about 10rds I was done. My last 3 visits to range I have probably shot 150rds through that rifle, my last 5 shot group was .673 at 100yds (still room for improvement). The brake has made my rifle enjoyable and more accurate. When I called him, he was very helpful and you cant beat his price.

Good luck!

Re: Muzzle breaks / are all equal

AZShooter, yes the Vias brake is quieter than the other one. If we want to get right down to it I suppose you should never shoot any rifle without hearing protection. I have never worn hearing protection while hunting and probably never will. I like my senses unobstructed. Just the way I am. To answer another comment ; yes dirt will definitely fly all over if you are shooting prone. Not a problem if not prone.
