    Looking to add muzzle brake for my Bergara HMR 6.5cm. Looking for sight picture help not reduced kick really. Hate adding the noise, but really want to see impact better. What do you guys recommend?

    IMHO I think the Supercomp Muzzlebrake will get you a really decent result.

    Muzzle brakes and not adding noise doesnt work out. If you want it quite get a suppressor? Or if your ok with loud then i like the muzzle brakes and more brakes. They are very affordable and quality made. I have a 3 port baby beast and 3 port beast. And they work great for spotting shots in a 30-375 ruger improved.

    Fixing to have my 300WSM threaded and a brake installed for the same reason. Dropping it off next week to West Texas Ordinance for Clayton to fix me up. Heard good reports on WTO, so i'm gonna give him a try. Threading is for a future suppressor. One small bite at a time!!

    Harrells makes a good brake. Witt machine if you don't want to have it threaded.

    I have three grizzly gunworks brakes, they make clamp on and thread on. Super happy with all of them. A buddy has the Defcon 1 that ggw makes on a 308, you don’t lose sight picture at a 100. He put a ruger hybrid brake on his Bergara 6.5cm. We could hardly notice the difference in recoil. The 308 has noticeably less recoil than the 6.5.
    I’m going to try the area 419 brake on a rifle I’m having rebarreled as another one to check out

    if you shoot prone you don't want a radial brake , they blow to much dirt . I have 2 from Muzzle Brakes and More . one on a 300 wby , the other on a 338 lapua . I couldn't be happier with how they work .

    I put a Holland’s Quick Discharge brake on my 6.5 PRC build and it has absolutely no muzzle rise and easily stays on target shooting a 142gr bullet at 3110. As fired the rifle weighs 12 lbs (with scope, bipod and sling). It is the loudest brake I have but it works like it is suppose to.

    Barrel contour? That make a difference.

    I much prefer the look of a blended to contour brake.

    I like AxisWorks Mini Slab or APA Micro Bastard brakes for lighter contours.

    For heavier contours, Hawkins or Badger Thruster

    +1 on area 419. I just purchased a couple of them (30 cal and 6.5mm). They should arrive at my house tomorrow. Ease of install and their suppressor adapters (Thunder Beast) are what sold me.

    Area 419s are great, APAs are very good. The 419 is awesome if you want to use a can.
