    Gunsmithing Muzzle Brakes

    When installing a Harrel's type muzzle brake with a series of baffles and radial ports is the .020" clearance used for all baffles, or are the clearances larger for the first baffles? Any help would be appreciated.

    Rifle Scopes felt recoil, muzzle brake vs scopes busting?

    Maybe a bit of a complex question here. (And this isn't a post about who's brand is better.) Some scopes out there have a rep for tremendous ruggedness. Bang 'em around, mount 'em on a .50 cal, and they're fine. SB, USO, etc. Then there are some brands where people have reported their scopes...

    Range Report Instrumental to Muzzle Velocity

    Having a little brain fade. Does anyone have the formula handy to convert Instrumental velocity to muzzle velocity? Oehler's program has it but with a fairly new computer & I can't find the disc. Seems to me that it was something like 25 fps for the chrono being 15ft. from the actual muzzle...

    Muzzle Brakes, clean or not.

    Hope this is not a stupid question but who out there cleans their muzzle brake on a 308.Is it necessary? The reason I ask is that some guys never clean their rifles either or only after hundreds of rounds when they say accuracy declines. Thanks.

    Muzzle Brakes

    Im in the proces of building a 6.5 Creedmoor and would like to put a brake on it. Do you all have any suggestions? Has anybody ever used the Surefire muzzle brake/suppressor combo? That seems like good way to go it works well. Thanks.
