Re: Muscle break, VIAS break, OR ?

I read a lot about the popularity of the Vias brake. Not to bash them but I don't get it?? I have shot a certain 300 win with a Vias brake quite a bit. I have to say it does a decent job on recoil but that is where it ends. This Vias is the rudest brake I have ever pulled the trigger behind. When prone it blows dirt everywhere and this is the only brake I have ever used that I feel the precussion on my body while shooting the rifle. I would seriously advise anyone against a Vias. Go with the side discharge.

I've had the same experience with the Vias and will never own one, it would have been better to have the recoil than the rude, heart stopping slap to the chest and face, took me years to even try another rifle with a brake!!

I've had a several radial breaks including two vias one on a 300 RUM. I just had a 3 port Muscle brake installed on my 6x284. Its the best one I've ever used.
