I've tried several different muzzle brakes
but have settled on the VAIS brakes.
(1) They do a reasonable job of reducing recoil.
(2) They don't blast gas back onto the front lens of the scope or into my face.
(3) They seem, and this is subjective, to be much quieter than any other brake I've tried and this is important to me.
I have a VAIS Brake on my Lazzeroni Patriot and it has much less "blast" than any 300 Weatherby I've ever been near.
I also have a VAIS Brake on my Lazzeroni Hellcat (375-cal) and on my most recent trip to Africa my PH showed some concern about it so I told him if he could tell the difference with the brake on or off I would remove it. I fired a total of 8 shots --- 4 with and 4 without the brake and he only got 2 of them right. I shot buffalo, leopard, sable, kudu, warthog, impala and a bunch of baboons without any complaints and when I left he ask me to send him one for his local 'smith to install on his .416 Remington.
