Hey fellow shooters,
I was wondering if anybody has installed a muzzle brake on there rifle and did it effect the acuracy. I don't really see how it could hurt it if you dont mess up the crown in the process of installation. I think it should help since it would reduce Recoil and muzzle jump. I would love to put one on my SPS tac .308 I'm building Any thoughts would be greatly apricated.

Thanks Jerry

You dont need it on the .308. They can make you unwelcome on the range due to the blast effects.

I've never liked them until I bought a rifle that had one on it. Now I wish I had them on all my rifles. The one thing I like is that you can see your hits and make your own corrections. The thing I hate is the noise. Like Quick said, people at the range won't like you. I shoot mostly on my own range or in the prairie dog towns so it isn't a problem for me.

To answer your question, it won't change your accuracy a bit.

Thanks for all your input . I know people dont like the extra noise but I can shoot almost a 1000yrds on several nearby farms :D so noise isnt realy a problem.
The brake has been put on back burner. I am now saving for a fully adjustable BC stock,but I am still planing on geting one in the future . By the way this is only my 2nd post, haven't realy had time to play with the guns :( the fun of owning your busineess. Anyways nuff said for now .
