Re: Would a muzzle brake help with control?

To simulate field rests, I lay my savage 110 in 7RM on the pedestal rest. The sides are not touching anything. With that brake, it does not torque or bounce. Just nice straight back.

It all depends on the brake design and how round the foreend is. On the savage, pretty much flat which is a big aid. Many hunting rifles are like 1/2 moons so roll under every circumstance.

Today you can even get a wider varmint style stock for little weight penalty. These would work very well indeed.

I design and fabricate brakes as part of my business, and yes they do wonders for you if you fear your gun (flinch),
and to keep you on target. Of course, if you're not flinching, they don't, nor should they, have any affect on
your grouping. It's a game of concentration, and if a brake
will keep your mind on the mechanics of shooting, get it soon.

well I never touch any part of the stock at all.. it just rests on the bi-pod.. unless you are gonna touch the stockl at the same place everytime you shoot it just doesn't make sense...

get the break... Badger, OPS Inc. make very good ones...
