    I am starting this thread for members that want to put a brake on their rifles but dont know where to start. I have seen at least 3 threads just today about which muzzle brake they should use (not that there is anything wrong with that) so i thought if we had lots of data and first hand experiences combined into 1 thread it would help make their decision easier.

    If you have used a brake please tell the style, caliber and weight of the gun used on, and how well it reduced recoil.

    I will included my results on Jim See's mini magnum muscle brake on a 284 win once i get the rifle and some rounds down range.

    Hope this turns into an informative thread for all.

    Riley,

    I know you (and most LRH members) mean well but sometimes we are too lazy to use one of the powerful tools this site has, that is "the search function" on the top right corner. Most often than not, I find the similar/related items previously posted. If not then I post the query.

    Try the search function first ..........................................................................................................[​IMG]

    FEENIX,
    I know how to use the search function, i made this thread so when people search 'muzzle brake' they would come across this thread and can find the information they are looking for.

    Riley,

    Don't misconstrue my message, I never said you didn't know how to use the search function or my response was directed to you. I'm simply encouraging to use that tool before any query ... you said so yourself, "3 thread just today about which muzzle brake they should use" ... a quick search would reduce or eliminate the other 2 queries.

    Again, your intentions are good and my response was not directed to you.

    M700 30-06 24" sporter w/ score high muzzle break
    recoils was reduced to around that of a .243 win or less than a 30-30

    Also had one installed on my 45/70 handi, recoil went from a fully loaded frieght train to a subway train I guess is the only way to discribe it both had about a 50% reduction I would say also very managable instead of wanting to jump out of your hands
    both are around 8 pounds

    Also have A score high tactical break on my 6.5-06. I have never shot this rifle without the break installed. rifle weighs in at 18 pounds. I can tell you there is little real felt recoil less than a .223 also no bounce when using a bipod. Would highly recommend to a friend

    Oh ya forgot to add that when they were installed recrowning of the barrels was included in the package. I noticed a big increase in accuracy on both rifles.
