REm

I have used muzzle breaks with ports all the way around them and I have used the hollands from kirby

I will use hollands now


I have used a all the way around muzzle break on a 300rum for shooting pdogs and after 4 shots I had a 1 foot deep hole in the ground with its previous contents in my hair and on my back.

GIve the hollands a whirl, you wont be dissapointed.

good luck
steve

Thanks for the response. Yah I had a muzzle brake on my old 25-06, and it was a type like holland. It came from score-hi gunsmithing out of New Mexico. It was very effective. Brought the kick down to .223 level so I could see me own shots. The noise was a little higher then I like, but oh well. Live and learn. I personally dont want a muzzle brake on anymore of my rifles. I dont need one on a 300 RUM, and I dont plan on getting anything bigger. I will let my dad know about those 4 shots and having a 1ft hole. It doesn't surprise me. The blast from my 25-06 was pretty good, let alone something burning 2x more powder [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Just curious to see if you've been shooting any of those 125g wildcats out of your 25-06 at 1000 or 1500 yards?? Im curious to see what the estimated BC will be, as well as the accuracy. Thanks.

The last 2 times i went shooting out to 1500yds I have brought my 25-06 and the 125gr's and each time I forget to shoot it. I will shoot it out ot 1k real soon and that should give us a good idea of the bc, 1500 should be even better.

I know at 500yds those suckers pack a hell of a wallop on rocks. BIG IMPACT SOUND

take it easy

Re: New Allen Magnum and APS rifle design finally ready to test....

Your probly having to much fun with your 270 AM to worry about your 25-06. I know I would! I shot mine out to 525 yards on targets and rocks. They do seem to hit them rocks and leave a louder whop then say a 100g or 115g Btip, thats for sure. Seems like it should be coming from a little bigger gun with a little more horsepower. I would think the 125g would be a deer killer out to 700 yards out of the 25-06's. With my velocity and conditions up here in Oregon, at 525 yards anyways, my clicks were on with the BC at .515. Still a lot higher BC then any other .257" hunting bullet out there. I did shoot a yote at 600, so I know they work for that. I didn't get a chance to shoot farther then 600 with them simply because I ran out of bullets [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I'm still interested in the BC you come up with when you shoot 1000 and 1500. Keep me posted.

50, i'm kickin around a hunting gun with a block in it but it serves a couple more functions than yours.basically i don't like the 1/4" screws in the barrel. i know it's supposedly alright but it just doesn't give me the warm and fuzzy!

This question may make no sense whatsoever but reading in an earlier topic about bolt clearance or crush fit bolt face to barrel clearance it was stated that this was detrimental to accuracy. Since with the v-block the action is not supporting the weight of the barrel does this change how you would set up bolt face to barrel clearance?
