Recently I purchased a Sauer 202 Classic XT in 30-06 (synthetic) which I'm thinking about getting threaded for a moderator.
Thing is.... during October I will be heavily involved on the local moose hunting team and will be doing several weeks of walking with the dog through the forest terrain, therefore I want to keep the rifle as short and light as possible.
I have been thinking about the idea of using a screw on muzzle brake on it instead of the mod to keep the weight and length to a minimum but also help a little with the recoil as the 200 grainers from a 56cm barrel synthetic give a bit of a kick and I bruise really easily! As I will be wearing electronic hearing protection anyway the bang is not going to be a problem.
Does anybody have any opinions, I've never used a muzzle break so was wondering if i am over looking something !?!
Appreciate any help/ advise from the knowledgeable folk on here
