Re: Question for the Experienced Muzzle Brake Shooter

There is another factor to consider. Reduced muzzle rise with quicker recovery for a second shot. With a really effective brake on a medium caliber and you can spot your own shots. You might chech under the optics topic and a discussion of scopes & muzzle brakes is going on now. Muzzle breaks will really "test" your scope by applying a reverse thrust.

    Yea there is. I think I'm the one that started that thread.

    I still get some jump but its more from the stock design. Felt recoil is a non-issue. Yep, its hard on scopes but that is now solved.

    Next will be getting the rifle to come straight back during recoil so as to spot my own shots as I used to with the 270 Win and thumbhole stock.
