Default Anybody have a favorite muzzle device for 458 ?

Primarily looking to mitigate recoil, not muzzle rise. I also don't want something enormous. What are you running on your 458?

I took mine completely off my 458 socom (Black Rain). I replaced it with a simple and short stainless thread protector. I use this awesome pig gun for hunting, slight muzzle rise really does not matter in that situation, follow up shot (other pig) no problem. Recoil is only slightly better with the brake.. I think because of the added weight (like 12 oz). The weight and length of stock muzzle brake sucked for hunting... short is good, light is better. Granted at the range a brake is a nicer, somewhat nicer to neighboring shooters. But I always get an interesting look when someone expects a .223 sound... "what the hell is that thing"

I don't understand. In my experience, brakes are also blast enhancers and especially to neighboring shooters on a firing line. I wish it were different. Please explain? Thanks Charlie.

Your are right, my bad. Intended to say the side blast from stock brake is not nice to neighbors! The stainless cap kind of has a big fireball at the front of muzzle, night effects are interesting.

Well that is certainly an economical solution and it seems to suit your purpose,. I am hoping to find a device of reasonable size that works well for mitigating recoil.

Email Ross Schuler. Very reliable performance brakes at a steal of a price.

The favorite muzzle device for my 458 Win Mag is the front site base.

Well sir, not everybody can be Frank. Some of us have to smoke cigars, we can't quite tolerate eating them.
