Re: \"Quiet crowns\" - reducing percieved noise and ear damage?
There is such a thing and it does work (for perceived sound)
You see extreme examples of these on some assault rifles and machine guns.( they look like a funnel )
I personally dont like muzzle breaks so when at the range
I wear ear plugs (ear muffs get in my way).
When hunting I like the electronic ear plugs that chop
loud sounds like muzzle blast but allow you to hear normally
I cant hunt with ear plugs or ear muffs (cant hear) so the electronic ear plugs work great.
As others have said deep crowns CAN cause accuracy problems.
I like to crown .060 deep, cut away from bore 90o and then
The 11 degree angle seems quieter and minimizes turbulence
as the bullet exits.
What ever you decide protect your ears. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
