Re: Best Muzzle Brake??
I have 2 different .257 Wby rifles, one a Mark V lightweight and the other one is a Vanguard. I had Kirby put a small PK on the Mark V and when shooting both guns from the bench, the difference between the two is amazing. Both guns are outfitted the same, with the exception of the barrel length - the Vanguard is 2" shorter, and weighs 1 1/2# more.
The Vanguard shoots an 110g Accubond @ 3400 fps
The MarkV shoots a 130g Wildcat @ 3250 fps.
Those were the two velocities that were the most accurate in each rifle for that bullet. Both guns used H-1000 powder, the MarkV needed 1.5g more powder than the Vanguard.
The MarkV has at least half the recoil, but the thing that I noticed the most is that there is NO rifle torque. The Vanguard will lift the left bipod leg a good 2" and the markV just sits there. The MarkV had a type of MB that had holes all around it, and Kirby's beats it hands down. No dirt kicked up as well, where with the other brake I would get a dirt shower every time I pulled the trigger.
