Re: Brake angles
I know I use a brake with a forward angle (not sure what angle) and it does an excellent job of reducing felt recoil. When using a forward angle, I know it helps to have surface area. In other words, if youre using a very light barrel, the brake needs to be larger for 2 reasons. 1: So it doesnt explode on you and 2: The increased surface area that the gasses pass through increases the effectivness of the brake. I am extreemly pleased with my forward angle brake for 2 reasons, it is very effective and 2 it doesnt give me a cuncussion or the guy next to me at the line when the hammer drops.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
