so what are some good brakes and give me an example of a crappy ones... how do you know if one is good or not? what are great brake parameters?
Well since know one has commented I'll give a crack at it
In my opinion a bad break is one with a radial design I hate this kind because it blows debree all over you and your rifle after it parts your hair and flipps your eyelids
I'll try to remeber your advice BHNow to just give another opinion
Love the Holland Radial Brake. I shoot it on the 338 Lapua Ack Imp with 300s at 2975 and has not blown debris on me once or parted my hair and yes I still have hair, and super easy even in my Tshirt too.
My advice to bigbuck is to remember to not put your head over the muzzle front and it will not part your hair and to clean the muzzle of dirt/debris after sticking it in the dirt before pulling the trigger.
Ok, for a LR/tactical rig shooting from the ground, the brake cannot have any holes on the bottom so has to vent out the sides and top only. that leaves out the ones that have holes all the way around such as the Vais and Harrels etc. They are super effective from a bench, but will blow dirt up.
Lot of decent ones and DE Edge and Holland QD and Radial are both very good.
I'll try to remeber your advice BH
Does your Holland have holes in the bottom?
Do you always shoot from the bench?
I haven't shot any radial break that does not throw muzzle blast into my face,but I will admit that I've never shot a break like yours either who knows maybe you have the one and ONLY
I think when BB said radial he meant 360 degree holes (like Vais) not Holland radial. I agree with what both of them are trying to say no holes on the bottom baffle style break IE Holland or DE style are the way to go.
Sorry guys that's what I was meaning 360 degree holes I should have been a little more clearer.I think when BB said radial he meant 360 degree holes (like Vais) not Holland radial.
