Re: muzzle brake noise/concussion comparison

In the video it's real clear that the brake ports the gases 90 degrees to the left and right...seems like it would alleviate the concern with concussion.

Either way Andrew.

I like keeping my action at home for work with other barrels.

Re: muzzle brake noise/concussion comparison

Thanks Neal. How was the turn around on having the brakes installed?

Does anyone have the Holland brake or a Pain Killer on one of their handguns? How's the blast from one of those?

Ernie has one of each he should be along with some insight. He also has a video of the Holland brake in the video section on here.

Howdy Gents ,

I have several manufacturers brakes ,and my 2 cents .....
I think the Best Deal going now, The Harrels 360 degree at $30 and the Schuler Side Discharge Brake ,$40...and his install is about the same $ . Check out Benchrest Central , Specialty Pistols / Snipes Hide .... web sites , lots of comments and pictures . I have These brakes on guns from 223 to 338x375 Ruger .

Re: muzzle brake noise/concussion comparison

[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.

+1

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.

Re: muzzle brake noise/concussion comparison

I will gladly give up effectiveness of a brake if it means I don't get that slap in the face with every shot. Maybe I'll start wearing a face shield instead of just safety glasses.
