Re: Muzzle brakes

Do they come with any diameter sizes?
I'm planning to use it on 1.35" barrel diameter.

Re: Muzzle brakes


I know for a fact that the Vais can be made up to 2 inche's. Ron is putting one a 50 BMG as we speak.

As far as the Answer, I'm not sure, the one I have is only .975

Re: Muzzle brakes

Who makes the most effective muzzlebreak for the big guns (ultras, 338 lapua)? I know it probably is one of the loudest brakes too, but that doesn't bother me. Have you guys seen Badger Ordnances muzzlebrake, I hear it is pretty good?

Re: Muzzle brakes

I can't give you a brand name for who has the most effective brake. But I can say that the brakes that cut down the most on recoil have large internal chambers in them and not just a clearance hole for the bullet to pass through with vent holes out the side. I had one of Dave Tooley's chamber brakes on a 300 Winny that a 9yr old kid shot very comfortably. I would say it was a lot like shooting a 243 Win without much jump.

Hope the description above gives you a mental picture. If not let me know and I'll try to get a picture posted of what I'm talking about.

BTW: That brake must have been doing something, because I've had more than one person at matches ask me what caliber I was shooting. The noise was that much more noticable to them over the other rifles being fired.

Re: Muzzle brakes

Thanks Steve, I think I can make a pretty accurate picture of it. But if you have a picture on hand then I would definitely like to see it.
