Some brakes are absolutely obnoxious, I don't use them. As someone who is not a professional sniper, that is about the only good thing I can say for cans. I think cans are a lot more trouble and expense that they are worth. Still must wear hearing protection with a can.
If your shooting budget is unlimited then get cans but most of us should spend our money on better barrels or reloading components and that sort of thing.

Some guys have an inability to admit they were wrong, even when presented with evidence. Hopefully they don't hold important jobs.

It's the same way with rifles when people cant get them to shot good groups, the barrel is the first thing they blame.

Doc, interested if you've had a chance to go shooting again yet and how your rifle performed?

So here is the latest. I’ve sent the suppressor back to Silencerco and the scope back to Leupold. At the suggestion from someone in the original thread, I purchased the Bushnell bore sighting tool with grid in it. So even though I thought it was the can, I remounted the scope with lapped rings, and since I had already purchased the bore sighting tool, I set it up just to try it out. Lined up the grid with the reticle and gave it 30 MOA up. Sure enough, the reticle moved down and to the left. 🤬🤬🤬. Which is what I got when shooting the tall test, up and right. I checked 4-5 times, and every time the reticle shifted to the left with an increase in elevation. 🤬🤬🤬. Just to be sure I was doing it right, I put the bore sighter in a rifle the a NF and one with a Swarovski. Both of those scopes tracked correctly according to the grid in the bore sighter.
I called Leupold and they said 4-6 weeks to fix it. My goat hunt is in early September, and that was going to be cutting it close, so I took the 30 mm rings off the PRC, put some 1” rings on it, lapped them, and put the Swarovski on it. I’ve just got it sighted in still have to do the tall target test with it to confirm tracking. Going to try and do that this weekend. Hopefully, it will be good. 😬😬
