Re: Does adding a muzzle break affect accuracy?

If a brake is installed ''ABSOLUTELY'' true to the bore and with the correct bullet clearance
the only thing it should effect is the harmonics because it adds length and weight to the barrel
That change may require a different load or an adjustment to the load you are using.

Ported brakes are not as efective at reducing recoil and normally reduce velocity a little because they effectively reduce the barrel length buy a small amount.

I have had both typs of brakes and recomend the add on type to keep the integrity of the barrel
intact and have total control of the installation.
