Re: Muzzle brakes affect on accuracy?
Moto, hanging a weight on the end of your barrel will definitely change the harmonic pattern it vibrates in. Your bullet will leave the barrel at a different location on that curve.
If you've carefully worked up a load for maximum accuracy, then it's very likely that you'll need to go back to the drawing board, at least on the powder charge, to gain maximum accuracy. If you end up shooting just as well with the same load after your brake is installed, please let us know. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones!
Whoops...Michael and I posted at the same time...
