I am looking to pick up a Muzzle Brake for my Rem 700 AAC-SD in .308. It has a threaded barrel (5/8" X 24) and I'm looking for something I can install on my own (crush washer or something). I have found a few but Im wondering if you guys have other options you can turn me on to or feedback on these 2. Let me know your thoughts...

I'm looking to take a bit of recoil off and make use of the threaded barrel. I would also like to keep it streamlined and not have it look like a .50 so smaller is better or at least close to Heavy Barrel size. Thanks in advance.

Both of your options are cool. Have you checked Badger Thurster?

I just put a PRI on a Ruger Gunsite Scout and it pretty much kills recoil. The "Effin A" brand brake is a non-indexing type and that makes it easy to install. Both are about $80.00.

I have a Miculik on a 300 Win Mag Encore. The Encore is a very light gun and the Miculik works very well. Not exactly the most elegant device out there though.

The PRI surprised me quite a bit, I found it to be very, very effective.

I actually forgot to include the Surefire as a contender. A friend has one on his AR and that thing kills all felt recoil. Shooting next to him sucks really bad, the ports aim directly at the shooters in the lanes on either side of him which is always me but I do love that one.

Gonna have to look into this one.

On a side note your prices and inventory are awesome, I have already sent you guys some business via friends asking where to buy mags and they put in a few orders. Now I just need to get around to putting mine in.

My vote is a badger thruster Installed by a gunsmith and contoured to the same diameter as the barrel.
