I didn't mean it like he didn't know. I was just saying that because I've heard the smaller you cut the threads in a barrel as far as diameter of the id of the brake it can affect accuracy.

Re: Planning long range build, couple question...

The way is was explained to me was that the more you take off of a barrel as far as diameter the closer you get to the bore which can affect/expand the bore outwards. It made sense to me by taking stress out of the barrel and affecting the metal. (I'm not good at explaining...lol)

He didn't say that it was gospel or that he even really knew whether it was fact or not, but he said he couldn't really guarantee it would shoot to it's potential. He said it would still shoot great, but "could" shoot worse with a brake. BTW he threads them all the time and even does his own, but he was just telling me that the larger the threads, IE 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, etc, is better because you are further away from the bore.

Ok. It just wasn't clear to me what you were gettng at.

That logic makes sense although it's not certain how much it takes to make any difference.

Any negative contribution there may also be more than offset by improvements due to recoil reduction. ...particularly when you're talking about a lot of shooting with big magnums.
