Who gives a crap about who he’s spelled it, we all know what he’s talking about. We’ve all done it. He’s asked a couple simple questions trying to learn.
More on Timing a brake using a file or flat stone. How do you know that you are removing material 90* to the bore of the brake? If you are off by even a thousandth or 2, you could cause a bullet strike and for sure changes your point of impact between the break being on and off.

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.https://www.silencershop.com/blog/post/how-to-time-a-muzzle-brake

I just spelled it the same way the gentleman did that was asking the question. Everyone knows what he was talking about. I’m not the type of person to talk down to someone. I will only try and help the best I can with their problems and answer a few questions for them when asked. This is a long range “ Hunting forum “ and not a spelling B contest.

First lesson:
It's spelled "BRAKES" as in brakes on a car.
Second Lesson:

Brakes suck, suppressors are better.

Don’t let people discourage you from this sight. There are some good people on here with some good advice. Unfortunately you will run into people with no manners. Hope you get some good info so you and your son can enjoy your 308 and other adventures.

Yeah to each there own. If someone feels to need to make me look like a fool that’s ok. A lot of others here are more then willing to share helpful info and advice too. You just have to weed through the BS. There are a lot of keyboard tough guys in the world but there are even more good guys out there willing to help a dumby like me and it’s always appreciated

That’s why I love this line from The Martian. Book or movie it’s in both.
“Every human being has a basic instinct: to help each other out. If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it's found in every culture without exception. Yes, there are assholes who just don't care, but they're massively outnumbered by the people who do.”

Very well said! 90% of us are here for that reason. I remember back in the day asking 'what is the meaning of life?'. Yes I grew up in the 60s. I now think I've figured it out. Life is a test. When you finally make 100, you die and go to heaven. No I'm not a religious fanatic, far from it but some people never figure it out and that is the other 10%. We are here to help each other and most of us feel that need and truly enjoy it.
I'll shut up now.

Agreed. If OP permits.
Since we are in school, I’d like to know, if you hunt with a brake, which I intend to for the first time this season, what do you use for hearing protection?
Personally, I have never worried about hearing pro in a deer stand or the woods, one or two shots of 30-06 or 308 26” away and adrenaline don’t seem to be much once or twice a year. But I have never had muzzle devices in the field until now. 1 shot of 308 with a brake in quiet woods may leave that ringing in one’s head.
Any advice?
