Which Muzzle Break To Choose?

Hey guys,

I have a Savage model 10 predator chambered in 22-250. I love to coyote, prairie dog, and wood chuck hunt. I am considering having a muzzle break put on, not because the gun has any recoil, but because there is just enough muzzle jump that does not allow me to watch the impact/damage the bullet causes. I have read many forums and reviewed many products. The name that comes up the most frequently is Vais. My local gunsmith usually installs Shrewd. I like the Shrewd varmint because there are no ports on the bottom that helps minimize a dust signature but the Vais seems to be more frequently used. Any insight on what i should do? Is a dust signature that bothersome? Are all breaks going to have similar results in terms of muzzle jump? The added sound really is not an issue because i always wear ear protection and have walker's hearing muffs while hunting.

Thanks

My opinion would be to avoid bottom ports - if you are shooting prone the dust flying is annoying.

I don't think you can go wrong on a 22-250 - any reputable brake you choose should tame the muzzle jump.

+1on the bottom ports for prone, but if you don't shoot prone, Vias. Having a Vias put on right now

Try a mini muscle break with 2-3 top ports bored in it. Noise increase is minimal and top ports will reduce muzzle rise
