[QUOTE=Catfish;369938]Andrew, I have had afew guns over the years with muzzle brakes
and from what I have found the better the brake the more noise.
The most effective brakes are the loudest !!!!!
I have a few rifles with breaks and they work well as long as you use ear protection
But I prefer heaver barrels and stocks on my hunting rifles and avoid using breaks because
I like to hear better when hunting and sometimes dont have time to use ear plugs or muffs.
If you like breaks and hunt with them then I would suggest buying the electronic type
ear plugs (Like the walkers game ears)so you can hear well and the noise of the brake
is clipped at somewhere arround 80 to 90 decibels.
