    Surpressor vs Brake

    Does anyone swap between the two as I was wondering if the POI changes.

    Common sense tells me every situation is different, and there's only one way to find out.

    Common sense would also suggest you can't add half a kilo to the end of a barrel without significantly affecting the mechanical harmonics and therefore the zero.

    On my short fat 308 barrel, very little little difference between the 3( suppressor, no suppressor and brake) but as said above any longer and thinner barrel and you have to re zero for the device used.

    And as a result I would think that would also affect load too. Anyone have real world experience with finding a different load for best results with suppressor/brake?
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
