The idea has come to mind to put a brake on my muzzle loader. Not for recoil, but to divert the smoke to the side, so, I can see where the game runs after I shoot. I have thought about switching to smokeless set up, but it isn't legal where I will be hunting with it. I'm currently using an encore pro hunter and a remy 700ss as a back up. both shot a 1 inch group at 100 yards with a 1x scope. They are set up to hunt in Utah, and I'm using 777 pellets with much success.
