I took my eagle "muzzle break" and actually made it work the way it is supposed to by soldering a bushing into the hole at the end to make it more effective.

Well, besides really reducing recoil a lot more, it appears to have:
-cut down on the distance that cases are ejected
-removed flyers from my groups (although I think that a bit more testing is necessary)
(no miracles have occured, it's still a 2" rifle)

Anybody have any similar experience or comments on the above?

Thanks.

crokilr---From what I've read there is an optimum size exit hole on any muzzle brake that works best. Going any bigger or smaller will tend to either degrade the proformance of the brake or accuracy of the bullet. For some reason .020" over the bullet size sticks in my mind but then I could be wrong. A system crash did away with all my bookmarks but I think I remember that from the Varmints Den. Can't count on that though as old age degrades more than just the eyes.

Good shooting

Thanks for the brake info Bushwack.

Actually, the "bushing" that I used was a stub from a .264 barrel and it pretty much matches the advice given at the site for dimensions of the exit hole.

Thanks
