Give yourself a break — a muzzle break

I developed a flinch shooting my old Ruger .270, and I knew I had to do something about it. Rather than scrap the rifle and buy a new one, I bought a muzzle break from Dale Neese. I talked about that muzzle break in today’s radio show on The Great Outdoors:

TGO 100706 TUES MuzzleBreak NOAD

The break doesn’t take the recoil away completely, but it does tame it down a great deal. I’d recommend a good muzzle break on any rifle you do a lot of target shooting with, no matter the caliber.

The only drawback is the noise. Muzzle breaks are incredibly loud, so you won’t want one on while you’re hunting. With that in mind, if you get one, find one you can take off if you don’t want to use it.

Dale is a long-distance shooter who holds several world distance-shooting records. He really knows what he’s doing. He’s also a genius when it comes to designing muzzle breaks, it seems. He sells his break for $175, and you can get one from him by calling him at 307-635-3832.

He’ll need the rifle you want to put it on for a week or so, because his breaks are rifle- and caliber-specific. If you can part with your fire-stick for that long, it will be well worth the wait. Tame that recoil, and you’ll be more likely to take it out to the range and practice with it. The break won’t affect the accuracy at all — actually, that’s not entirely true. It’ll make you more accurate than you were before, because you won’t be anticipating a shoulder-smashing kick every time you pull the trigger.
