    Question Which muzzle brake for my build?

    I am trying to decide on which muzzle brake to go with on my build and would love your suggestions!

    Here are what I have thought about in no certain order.

    Dust kick up in consideration due to prone shooting. Recoil reduction and rise reduction being considered. Annoyance to other shooters not worried about. No crush washers, etc. All Brakes will be timed with threading.

    I redefined trust between my wife and I. Bought her a gun, hand loaded ammo for it, showed her how to shoot it, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.

    Muzzle Brake: Summary of Field Test Results - PrecisionRifleBlog.com

    The guy at PRB did a 3 part series evaluating almost all your criteria. This is the summary. You should be able to find the other parts if you wanted to. I'd personally choose the one that functions best, and worry about how it looks second.
    However,
    I think the APA fat bastard gen 2 looks best. Especially when it's blended in with a heavy barrel.
    Never tried it though it's supposed be quite effective at reducing recoil.

    One thing about PA brakes. While it's a great brake that will reduce high % of the recoil, because of it's design, you will get gas blow back to you. Depends on the shooter, some feel very uncomfortable.

    I would go with a thunderbeast ultra 9. It will greatly reduce recoil and sound. They are expensive, but you won't be sorry.

    JP Recoil Eliminator looks good in those tests. Too bad they didn't test the m11

    Take some of that data with caution.

    Some test left room for large error, most notably any test were the rifle was shot with a person doing the shooting.

    Incorrectly building your shooting position could have cause any error seen in that test.

    I have been shooting the M11 now since December. I have not noticed any blow back. People have told me my rifle is stupid load when they are on the sides but not so bad if they are behind me.
