It's not a bad idea.  A good one for those looking at getting one.  Especially once the have one they will be able to remove it once they see how loud it makes their gun.

I use hearing protection when I shoot, so the noise doesn't make a lick of difference.  It's really not smart to shoot without it. Also I can't say that I've ever heard someone who actually has shooting experience, say they don't like brakes.  :rolleyes:

I'll continue to watch my hits through my scope while the guys without brakes wonder where they're hitting.

I know the guys next to me don't like being around when we pull out the .50BMG.  That muzzle break clears the benches.   :grin:

I've seen a lot about these MB's written on another forum. All you have to do is watch a few YouTube vids on these to see that they actually do a fairly good job at reducing recoil, and they are loud as hell. A few obvious things that people tend to over look are, although the brake may be precision tooled, doesn't mean the end of your barrel is perfectly concentric, which means the two may not align perfectly, and you may end up shooting that brake right off. It is still something you should have professionally installed. They package it as a pop on and off accessory, and the way they do that is by enlarging the hole to two or three times the size a professionally installed brake would be, which obviously would cause a reduced efficiency.

Here is a quick video clip of my buddy testing the Micro Bastard brake on a Tikka T3 light in 7mm mag. They make a huge difference in recoil.

  I suppose it makes some sense for a rifle with heavy recoil, but a 223 has very little recoil.  Even the guy shooting the 7mm Mag must have some tinder shoulders if he needs a muzzle brake to modify what little recoil the 7mm mag develops.

  I shoot a 470NE double rifle with nothing but a t-shirt between me and the rifle.

  I understand, however, the guy who shoots at long range the little centerfire 22s so he can see his hits through the scope. I have a couple of bolt rifles chambered for 223 and I have no trouble seeing my hits without a MB!

  Certainly one uses hearing protection when shooting on the range, or on a P-dog shoot, but I don't think it would be such a good idea when following a cape buffalo or brown bear into the weeds. And I don't see many people shooting those things with a 223, but the rifles normally used for the hunting of big game, especially dangerous game, where those rifles have enough recoil that may well be justification for a Muzzle brake but are rarely seen on them!
  Hold your fire till I dig my fox hole! :laugh:

MacD37,
I'm glad that you're really tough and don't need a muzzle brake on your rifle.

I purchased a Witt Machine brake for my new 26 Nosler, world of difference in recoil and barrel rise  :tup: I love it.. I would highly recommend to anyone on a budget, no gun smith required is also a plus. Rifle shot extremely well also.

That 26 Nosler will be a Slayer!!! I just don't like the name of it? The 6.5 Nosler would have been better.
