Re: Muscle break, VIAS break, OR ?

Does anyone have any experience with or comments about the Precision Weapons Systems Precision Rifle Compensator 5/8x24 for 300WM? I found one at NoKick and was wondering about it's effectiveness. Thanks..

Doc

    Someone needs to do an unbiased experiment using all the popular breaks and see how they do. I vote for someone with a few different long range rigs. Here are some of the breaks

    Muscle
    Aps (kirbys)
    Assasin (je custom)
    Shawn Carlocks
    Vais

    Any others?

    Who wants to do it?

    I will supply the rifle's and ammo. You supply the brakes and machining cost.

    Deal?

    Wish I could. . I could maybe supply one of them. But I don't currently own one. Maybe this is something that could be done at a shoot?

    It would be hard to do actually. Brakes would need to be fitted and timed to the barrel. Machining of each brake could cost almost as much as the brake itself.

    Thus is true, I noticed that. Too bad it sounded like a good idea anyways.

    I'd put the PWS PRC on that list also.

    I took the Vais that I had on my 300WM off and put on the PRC and it was like shooting with a pillow on my shoulder. Muzzle reaction and stability was notably increased and using the H37 reticle I was able to observe round flight and impact at 850m without any problems. From the prone I was able to maintain point of aim thru a rapid fire sequence of a 4 round mag using HSM 220gr HPBT Match (Mk248Mod1). There was zero ground blast and my wife reports there was a marked reduction in noise also. I'm pleased with it, think I'll keep it.
