    In my experience, it works better as a flash suppresor than a muzzle brake. There was a very slight reduction in recoil and muzzle rise. I wouldn't consider it ideal for LRH, because I generally prefer a solid bottom brake on precision rifles(just to keep the dust or leaves at bay).

    I've had good results with KDF for general shooting and Holland QD brakes for prone.

    I'd like to try the Muscle Brake and APS Painkiller sometime.

    +1 on the Holland QD and APS PK brakes. I have two 338 Khan's, one with the Holland and with the PK brake. Both rifles are about the same weight and have an A5 stock. If I just had to say, the PK brake "seems" to be a little more efficient, but honestly it is hard to tell the difference. Both are great brakes, you won't go wrong either way.

    Holland has a Gen 2 Radial design that is even better than his first one he came out with a couple of years ago-Awesome brake.

    It must be good because it costs quite a bit more.

    I was going to try one, but he's not setup for discover card. So, I just took the easy out and bought my Holland QD's through Midway.

    im not sure what the cost of other breaks are but i paid $250 installed for mine...ive seen others advertised elsewhere for almost as much and sometimes more for the break alone. maybe i got hosed a little but im ok with that it was well worth it

    I'm a big Darrel Holland fan. If he says his Radial Baffle is better than his Quick Discharge and costs more, I want one.
