Re: Best Muzzle Brake??

If you are shooting prone, I would encourage a solid-bottomed brake.

Re: Best Muzzle Brake??

dlebeck;

I have three different rifles and all three have muzzle brakes..

!. 300 Win Mag, model 70 Winchester with the most common brake the you

see in the books and magazines with the three large ports on the sides and

it works very well.. I would guesstimate about 50 to 60 % drop in kick.

2. The next two are from the www.wittmachines.com they are the bolt

on type and I like them the best that I have tried!! They are about 40%

larger than the regular kind but have several advantages over the others..

The reduce the kick by about 70% and you can install it in about 15 to 30

minutes with no problem..

They are a lot cheaper than the others and if you don't like it?? Take it off
and you can always install one of the threaded kind??

Once it is installed on the barrel and leveled up to everything else, Scope,
and etc. etc. Turn it bottom side up and put, LOCTITE THREAD LOCKER,
#271 (RED) in the locking threads and tighten the threads down real good.

I have one of these kind on my 300 Win Mag, bench gun and one on a
338 06 and my Grand daughter, (110 pounds of her) has a good time with it..

I would answer any questions if I can

Lots of things happened since the OP's post!

WOW! How did you quantify that?

Hopefully, JE Customs and others that did extensive designs and comparison will chime in.

BTW, the correct website is http://www.wittmachine.net/

Re: Best Muzzle Brake??

I'd like to see a video of the rifle resting on a smooth surface, each bipod leg and rifle butt sitting inside a frisbee, and fired with the exact same bullet/load combo with the brake on the rifle and off of the rifle, with measurements of how far the rifle slides taken for both shots. Fire the rifle with a string pulling the trigger.
