grey hickman: Does a 308 even need a muzzle break?
Yukon12gauge: I get that all the time. Nice loud rifle you got their sir :) Did you
have to refine your loads or did the accuracy stay the same?
SuperFrasman: Muzzle BRAKE (unless it's broken)
ThaiTan Corner: you should send me the factory muzzle
Josh Mango: go to amazon and search 308 muzzle break
Mike Poole: Do you want to sell your factory brake?
bgallaher77: The linear comp did NOT work in terms of recoil reduction. The factory
break was better in that regard. I wanted something that wasn't as loud as
the muzzle break, and it did do that. For recoil, this is not the answer.
recess20026: Silver plating is used on threads as a lubricant.
Cowboy Rusty: Does Savage offer a thread protector if you don't want the muzzle break on
Cowboy Rusty: Cool, thanks. I'm trying to decide what I want. I like the Model 10 FP-SR
but wish it came with a box mag instead of internal. Would be nice to have
something more than 4 shots too. I wish the FCP-SR wasn't camo because that
is the one that I like the most minus the stock.
bgallaher77: Well, I hate to admit it, but I have not tried the break out on the FLCP-K.
I am thinking that it has to increase recoil given that all the gasses move
forward, opposed to the savage break. I put one on a Ruger Scout rifle as
well. I didn't do anything so soften the recoil. For both guns, I wanted to
try and direct the sound of the rifle forward away from the shooter. I
couldn't tell a difference on the scout when I tested it.
ntdanny: you should worry about the effects of noise while shooting, gunshots can
and do cause instant and irreversable damage to your hearing, this is made
even worse with a muzzle break, hearing protection is a must, if you are
only new to shooting start looking after your ears or you will end up like
me with constant ringing in your ears, just ask any older shooter. cheers
bgallaher77: Cool shot. Would be fun to see. I worry about the long term effects of
noise with a rifle while hunting. Thinking I will take a pair of earplugs
and, if there is time like this year, slip them in place before taking a
shot. If no time, then business as usual. I use my rifle for informal
matchs. Some matches do not allow muzzle breaks. I was thinking the linear
comp. fits the bill. And I like to tinker. Might be going to back to
original break (or a JP) depending on how it works out.
mamuttik: Please what is the diameter of the heavy barrel FCP-K (calculation scope
rings) Thank you for your answer
andrewsails1371: So, I have the same factory savage brake on my FCP mod10. I would'nt call
it a hunting rifle but I took it in the field this year and harvested a doe
at about 200 yards... and after I shot it was the first time I actually saw
the deer after I shot it.. No dout it was much easier to keep on target
after the shot. Needless to say I could'nt hear for a while, but while
hunting generaly you don't hear or feel the shot.. I love brakes over all
other muzzle devices. just my take. I am keeping mine on
Judd Tamar: Can you tell me: - does your rifle have a better accuracy (grouping) with a
muzzle break on or without a muzzle break? Thanks!
RedReefMedia: Great point. My dad is one of those macho Army types from the pre-Vietnam
era and he definitely had hearing loss. I wear ear and eye protection all
bgallaher77: I do, but I want to keep mine. I would suggest calling Savage
(1-413-568-7001) and ordering the part. I thought you could order through
the website, but I don't see anything. I have always thought the JP
Enterprises muzzle breaks were cool, you might check them out.
anthony murphy: Did the comp work? I have the same rifle and was thinking about changing
muzzle brake on it. I don't mind spending money to save my shoulder. Have
you heard if better muzzles brakes that work better than the factory one?.
bgallaher77: I agree, using ear pro is a must for all shooting & loud activities (eg
mowing the lawn, using nail guns, running the air compressor). I shoot 1
deer/year and understand the risk. Next season ear pro will be in the
hunting kit (3M E-A-R Earsoft Corded Plugs, 200 pair/box at amazon). Will
use when practical. Any thoughts on amplified ear plugs? Ever hunted w/
them? Eye pro is also in constant use. Recall, ear muffs are less effective
when worn with glasses. Good (and safe) shooting. -bgallaher77
YZBRO18: Do you still have the factory break? I have been looking for one and I
can't find one anywhere.
andrewsails1371: So what's the verdic? witch one is better?
bgallaher77: I am either going back to the factory break (decided I don't mind shooting
a break at matches given that lots of other folks do it too) or trying a
Spike's Tactical Dynacomp Extreme .308 , which is $90 at aimsurplus. I'll
post a video update when I get around to switching back.
bgallaher77: As an aftermarket part, I don't know if Savage sells thread protectors. If
you are talking about a factory rifle then the answer is yes, they have
stock police rifles with that configuration. The cool think about savage is
that you can call their special orders department they will build you
anything you want. So, you can configure your own rifle and then order it
through your local FFL. (413) 568-7001 ext 4299 for Special Orders.
bgallaher77: That sounds like a cool rifle. It also sounds like a pretty easy custom
order. I put in a custom order for a left handed hog rifle but never got
around to ordering it. You can specify features and caliber and they will
tell you if they can get the parts normally or if they have to special
order them. For example, a green left handed stock for the hog rifle would
be a special order, but a black stock they had on hand. Check out sharp
shooters supply, and savageshooters forum.
