Thanks. I looked at ...
Thanks. I looked at a chart on Long Range Shooters (I think it was) site and they had a sound/concussion chart comparing some popular brands.

By "quiet" do you mean "directs the noise elsewhere"? Because brakes can't by law reduce noise. They become suppressors when they do that.

Unfortunately that might increase the noise behind the line-----the uproarious laughter from fellow shooters and other observers
