what muzzle brake?

Well after combing the internet and long, long talks in the shop, I have made this list of brands, what one will offer the most reduction in recoil?

1. Slimline Muzzlebrakes

2. Holland's Quick Discharge Muzzle brake

3. Mag-na-brake

4. Ops Inc Brake

5. Vais Arms Inc.

I was reading that the baffle types (I think the only ones of the 5 are the Ops Inc, and the holland) will do a better job than the expansion (the remaining 4 types)

what do you guys reccomend, this will be going on a .308 Savage 110fp w/ a simonson machine alum. stock

Have you looked at JP's? I've never shot one, but hear good things.

I beleive this is the most effective recoil system out there. Its a combination of muzzle brake and shock pad on the stock.

well, i have a simonson machine stock, so that pad wont work.

well, the research that i did, everything told me that the baffle types such as the ops, holland, and the one thats really catching my eye now, is the JP, are the ones that work much better than the expansion such as the answer.

is there some place that ranks them?

If you don't mind the unconventional look of the JP's they are the most effective. I have them on my .308 700PSS and 7mm mag 700BDL. Surprisingly enough the felt recoil from the 7mm mag is less than that of the .308. The reason being 7mm has a smaller exit hole than .308 so lesser remaining expanding gas exit the muzzle.
I have studied and tried many muzzle brakes and finally settled with JP's. The physics of reducing recoil is not complicated. First, the part of the recoil generated by action and reaction force of the exiting bullet is not count-actable, therefore heavier and faster bullets will have more recoil, however, this is only a very small part of the total recoil. The second part of the total recoil is from the expanding gas shooting straight out of the muzzle just after the bullet exits. This jet action propels the rifle back into your shoulder. The is the major part of the recoil and it can hurt. Fortunately, we can do something about it. An effective muzzle brake will dump or discharge expanding gas as much and as quickly as possible before the bullet exit and the direction of the dump is perpendicular to the bore. The JP brake has two large expansion chambers and the chambers are angled slightly upward and very slightly rearward. It dumps expanding gas very fast and in high volume resulting only very small amount of expanding gas shooting straight out. The slightly upward and rearward angles help keeps the muzzle down and help pulls the rifle forward. The recoil reduction is amazing. My 7mm mag felt like a .223 and .308 felt a little more than a .223 but way less than a 22-250. For people who absolutely hates recoil they can, besidies the JP brake, add the LimbSaver recoil pad to the rifle. This JP/LimbSaver combination will make most hard kicking rifles puzzy cats.

I'm a little late with this reply, but I just had an Ops, Inc. brake put on my 10FP .308. It's the first muzzle brake I've used and I'm very pleased with the results. There is still some muzzle climb, tho not as much as before and the recoil is less than a .223. Another bonus is the report isn't anywere near as bad as I was expecting. I had a buddy shoot it with full charge loads while I stood two feet to the side and I could have stood there all day, unlike another buddy's Armalite AR that has me flinching with every round. ops:
