Savage muzzle break

Some of the savage rifles have an adjustable muzzle break -- is this like the boss system that browning had or what is the adjustment?

Re: Savage muzzle break

I believe you can turn it just a bit to to "turn it off"
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

I have looked at few 111LRH with this break and I have tried to turn them by hand no such luck do not sure if that is by design and need a tool to move it. But have heard they work very well.

I have a lrh in 300 win mag with this brake. It does twist from open to close. No problem opening or closing.

Re: Savage muzzle break

My LRH has the brake. It is an open/close design. It can foul up and stick after repeated shooting, particularly if there is any oil left in it. The manual says not to oil it. Some brake cleaner will loosen it if this happens. I just leave mine open and don't worry about it.
