hey hunters, do you cover your brake with anything while hunting to protect from snow,mud,or debris? If so what do you use? Can you shoot thru anything like taping over a barrel end? thanks, Dskiper

You can cover your brake and end of barrel and it has no effect on the shot. I use electricians tape although I've seen everything from balloons to condoms to finger cots used.

I had a bit of fun one day. I wrapped heaps of electrical tape around the muzzel brake on my .338WM, just to see if it could stand the pressure.

I left the exit hole uncovered so that the gas could escape out the muzzel as normal. I thought if I put enough tape around it that it would hold, so I went around about twenty times.

Well when I fired the rifle there was tape all over the paddock in a 30 yard radius. Did not find any tape bigger than a quarter inch square.

Didn't do it again.
