    You could do one of these also. Considering this for my next build or even for my current rifle: American Precision Arms

    Give the Shrewd Varmint Brake a ride and you'll love it.

    VARMINT BRAKE - Brownells

    Very easy on the ears, side discharge, and virtually eliminates muzzle flip. I have on on my .260 and I can see my impacts even at 100yds.

    Hey guys.. I am very sad right now. haha

    I really like the Muscle brake and the Varmint brake that you have provided in the link above.. but my barrel is a little thinner than I thought it was. the barrel diameter is a ridiculous .604!!! Are their any muzzle brakes that will fit such a thin barrel?!

    I haven't seen many of the inline brakes that are very effective other than this one.

    OPS Muzzle Brake Stainless Installed

    Extremely effective brake but brutal on the ears especially for anyone around you.

    Just about any of them can be tapered down to match your barrel diameter and look nice.

    Drop this guy a line, ROSS SCHULER rem40xb1@msn.com . He hooked my son up with a brake for his gun. He will turn it to what ever diameter you need. Super fast and first class service as well and you wont find a better price anywhere!

    There's simply no one I'd rather do business with than Ross. He's a great guy. Unfortunately he can't modify his design to meet my "no ears" requirement. Too many of my shots are just a matter of seconds from seeing the target to losing it and I dont' have time to find plugs or muffs and get them on.

    Trust me it's not a matter of choice for me.

    Most of my shooting is done from the truck and from the time I see my target 90% of the time I have less than thirty seconds to stop the truck get the rifle ready and pull the trigger or they are gone.

    Even an extra five or ten seconds to find ear protection means a missed opportunity.

    My favorite for 7mm up. Good looks, no dust storm, very effective , if installed to the proper depth you can clean the crown without removal and good looks.

    I have used probably at least 8 of these and I am sold.

    Cory, I forgot the name of the break that you have on your 7mmWSM Gap??
    Wild Rose I understand where you are coming from, for me the noise isn't bad, what I need is low recoil!! How bad does your 260 kick? I have started a new build and it is a 260 Ackley Improved, I am planning o0n shooting 140gr Berger VDL's.
    Sorry for hijacking the post, I am looking for a Real Good Break.
