Decided the 300WM wan't noisy enough and needed something aggressive to give it a better look
Muzzle brake it is!!
Couldn't find what I was after, without paying more than the rifle..oh, and when I enquired with a very well known custom rifle builder apparently you need to take the barrel off to screw cut it...as the thread I had on it wasn't right so it needed a new.....so I may as well rebarrel it while I am at it!!! Seriously!!?? some gunsmiths need an enema!!!
Anyway, found two chaps, one I know (on here, you know who you are) and one I didnt (found him on eBay and commissioned him! best £25 I have spent in a while)
both came up with brakes to order for less than the price of a kidney
One steel (to be blued when I get around to it!), similar profile to the barrel, fairly discreet
One anodised aluminium, more Howitzer in nature, big chunky vents and pressure surfaces
They both arrived the other day and after a bit of playing to clock them to horizontal they look the part
Now that I have managed to repair the only 1" mounts Tikka mounts and stick on a temporary 8x50 scope I plan to rezero and do a back to back test on Sunday.
No brake, Brake no.1, Brake no.2
Hopefully it will show a difference in perceived recoil, perceived noise and maybe even a POI shift...don't know!
roll on Sunday
