I'm not surprised by the accuracy, I've seen two others do the same thing.
Recoil reduction wasn't really astounding, but muzzle flip was reduced. The sound has a little bit more "slap" to it, but no major "boom". I put the Rem SuperCell recoil pad on it, and that made the most difference in recoil. With the combo of the 2, the gun hardly kicks at all, and that is using 178gr and 180gr bullets. The recoil feels more like a light 243 load.
I just read somewhere that all this (type of?) muzzle break is supposed to do is reduce muzzle flip. If so, it does a great job.
