    I saw this the other. Day and found it to be very interesting.



    He has several videos and compares a LOT of muzzle brakes. Many people think his method is crap, but he does manage to get reasonable and repeatable results.

    Interesting, but I don't understand why he has anything in the stand/mount that isn't locked down (the ammo box). I suppose it doesn't make much difference if it's always there on every shot, but to be as scientific as possible, get rid of everything that isn't necessary to mount the gun and lock it down. I'd also say to clean the surface of the table after each muzzle brake change (maybe he did, I didn't listen to all of his talking at the beginning).

    I was most surprised by the suppressor results.

    As long as what's in the sled is always there, it doesn't matter what he has in there.

    That's one way to do it. Quick and dirty, but it does the job without overanalyzing.

    Muzzle Brake: Summary of Field Test Results

    If you want to read about muzzle brake performance, across 4 calibers, on pretty much every aspect of the brake, this is the place. Tread lightly.
