    Ross Schuler. Works great and you can't beat the price.

    I think his partner is now a sponsor here on LRH selling brakes.

    Another nod to Ross' brake. Works good, it's good looking, and you can't beat the price. I own two! :)

    Some muzzle brakes are just machined out of a piece of steel or stainless and some muzzle brakes are heat treated to 30 rockwell for durability to hold up to the blast of high velocity cartridges. Hint The :D Muscle brake.
    I own one.

    Have you actually seen a non hardened brake wear out before a barrel? I never have and I've built various different brakes for 20 years. Granted I've never owned a Cheytac based rifle but I have a .30-.378 IMP that shoots 150gr bullets over 4000fps with 120+grs of powder and it hasn't worn out the brake on it.

    I have been making brakes for over 20 years also without hardening and I have never seen one that had any problems at all. I have sold hundreds of brakes and I have never had to replace one. I guess I have just been lucky or hardening doesn't matter

    That's pretty funny. Worrying about a heat treated muzzle brake, when the barrel itself is not heat treated. :rolleyes:

    I dip all my brakes in unicorn blood. It keeps the bullets from stopping inside the brake. Haven't had one stop yet.
