Re: muzzel brake cover
I had a bit of fun one day. I wrapped heaps of electrical tape around the muzzel brake on my .338WM, just to see if it could stand the pressure.
I left the exit hole uncovered so that the gas could escape out the muzzel as normal. I thought if I put enough tape around it that it would hold, so I went around about twenty times.
Well when I fired the rifle there was tape all over the paddock in a 30 yard radius. Did not find any tape bigger than a quarter inch square.
Didn't do it again.
