    I am considering rebarreling my Rem Sendero 300RUM in the future. I will likely go with a longer 30" heavy barrel. I am also considering a muzzle brake such as hollands QD brake. do muzzle brakes effect accuracy (make worse)?

    Nope, not to any degree you can tell at least. My QD equipped 6.5/284 is a 1/4 MOA gun, given the loads/conditions/driver required.

    Others who compete in BR type events do far better, both with and without the use of breaks.

    Interestingly enough

    When I put one on my 300WM Sendero, my groups tightened up a bit. I'm not sure if it actually changed the dynamics of my barrel harmonics or if I'm just shooting better now that the recoil is the same as my 15 pound 308.
