f-class muzzle break?

Is it within the rules to have a muzzle break on a rifle built for f-class?

No.

You can have it threaded and take the brake off during F-Class matches, but outside of a few smaller ranges that may let you shoot alongside for fun, muzzle brakes are not allowed for NRA High Power Rifle matches (of which F-Class is a part).

Thank you for the information. I am planning a custom rifle build, and want to get into F-class shooting. I also will use it for varmint hunting.

If you put a brake on, just have your smith make a "thread protector" to install after you take it off during Fclass shoots.

Re: f-class muzzle break?

Quantico has two types of F-class. One is unsanctioned and one is NRA rules. The unsanctioned one is the one I have been shooting for the last several years and you can use a muzzle brake. You also get to shoot five more rounds than NRA rules. As a general rule, it is a little more laid back and sometimes you get do-overs. Sometimes, I will fire a few extra shots just to shoot up all of the ammo I brought.

Where is Quantico? I live in Northern NJ, so I may be stuck shooting by NRA rules lol.

Quantico Marine Base in Virginia. Just off I-90 maybe 20-30 miles south of Wash. DC
