Need help with muzzle break

Hey Guys,

Just purchased a new Browning BAR shortrac in 270wsm. I know these guys have had some ridicule in the accuracy department but I have always loved the BAR action. I am new to aftermarket smithing and I would like to know what you guys think about getting a muzzle break to help with accuracy and maybe some recoil. What types, brands, prices are a good starting point?

Thanks,
Josh

There are a lot of great ones I like vias Hollands kirbys Bobby harts and Nate from ssg they are all really good and there are others as well. It will definitely help with recoil which is a big part of accuracy so as long as you are up for the extra noise I say give it a shot

A muzzle brake with definitely help reduce recoil and as djtjr pointed out, that helps with accuracy. these days I really like two brakes...

The Fat Bastard and its little brother the Little Bastard...

New Fat Bastard video - Sniper's Hide Forums

Also, really like the various Muscle Brakes by Center Shot Rifles...

I have had good luck with the brakes from Shawn Carlock at Defensive edge.
