    Just got a Sako TRG 42 338 LM with the standard muzzle break and I can't find out what the [email protected]@L the small allen screw on the thing is for. It does not even mention it in the instructions.

    Anybody know how it is intended to be used??

    Aaaaaahhhh. That makes sense. Thanks. So I assume that means it is supposed to point straight up??

    Nice rig!! How long have you had that?

    I am ecstatic about mine. I was worried about the recoil before I shot it, but it is almost less felt recoil than my 30-06. I put over 100 rounds through the thing the other day in less than 4 hours and I could have shot another 200 easy if I had the time and the ammo, especially when it keeps shooting .5 to .75 moa with almost any load you feed it. Really fun to shoot. I may be getting divorced soon.
