    Reccomend a muzzle break for me...

    Hi all... I have a 284 Winchester on a 25.5 inch medium/sportier type barrel. There are a lot of muzzle break brands/types/options in New Zealand. Where to start?! The goal obviously is to cut recoil to observe splash on the target. Any suggestions?

    Don't get a side exhaust brake - they have to be timed to the barrel/action which costs more money and means that it is more awkward retiming the brake after you have taken it off the muzzle when you want to do some maintenance on the rifle. Get a radial brake - cheaper to install and none of the timing problems associated with side exhaust brakes. The internal design of the brake is important for accuracy potential but you will have to check that out on the internet. I use both types, radial and side exhaust and prefer the radial for the reasons above - and there are no problems with dust clouds caused by the radial brake exhausting at the bottom - that is an internet reality created problem unless you are lying on the floor of a dust desert in Iraq. Be aware of how small the muzzle will be turned down for threading - the closer to the original diameter the threaded barrel is the better because the internal diameter of the bore may bell out (very bad for accuracy) if the muzzle is turned down too much for threading. Different kinds of manufacturing processes (hammer forging, button or cut rifling) of barrels have different levels of vulnerability to this effect. Do get a brake because they make a big difference to recoil but if you fire the rifle without hearing protection you will regret it for the rest of your life due to the probable hearing damage you will suffer. You may get a bit of flack from you mates as well if you don't warn them before you take the shot.

    Disagree, radial brakes are shit. Get a directional and get it timed

    Radial brakes cover you in dust and all sorts of rubbish they blow up off the ground. Side exhaust brakes don't do this. I had no issues with cleaning my rifle with a Terminator brake. I had no reason to take it off. Not sure what rupert ment about taking it off for maintenance.
