https://grizzlygunworks.com/clamp-on-muzzle-brakes/ this is a clamp on ( sometime called a 2 piece muzzle break because it comes in 2 pieces. Some friends of mine and myself have this one and it works really good. It is on 2-7 Remington Magnums and they kick like 243 Win. The ports face up which is what you want so that way if you are laying on the ground for whatever reason you do not kick up dust and get it all over yourself, your optics, or blow stuff off the table if on a bench.I’m building a new rifle and want to put a break on it so my kids can shoot it without too much trouble. It’s a 308 so the recoil is pretty mild for me but maybe not a 12 year old. So, what is the difference between 1 piece and 2 piece, self timing, and port position?
I’ve done a lot of reading on breaks and it seems like a lot of info is more opinions. I know they work for recoil reduction because I have shot rifles with and without them. How do 1 piece vs. 2 piece breaks work and why would you choose one over the other?
There are a lot of opinions on port position and direction (90 degree vs forward vs rear facing ports). What gives? It’s tough to understand when 1 manufacture says one thing then another says the complete opposite ( I understand marketing but dang it’s confusing). Do ports on top really effect rifle positioning for follow up shots because it pushes the muzzle down???
This rifle is going to be my primary hunting rig but I also plan on spending a lot of time behind it at the range. I’ll probably use a break at the range but hunt without it. I know I will have to confirm zero if and when I take off or put on the break.
Anyways I would love to hear from you guys that have used and experimented with different types of breaks.
