Well I am not really trying to "get you", just trying to make sense of this. Maybe you could post a pic of your brake, it might make it more clear. Dont matter really, as long as it works.

Way I look at it, if you can keep it on a paper plate out to 300 yards from field positions you are going to kill anything bigger than a Duiker/Steenbuk. I do like the 6" targets that highlight your hits as it is easy to see how you are doing without walking back and forth.

The muzzlebrake, I was referring to was the "Fox River" they put them on at Gander Mountain stores for about $149....at least that's what I found when I did a search. I put mine on my gun many years ago. I couldn't even find a picture! I guess their is a lot of talk on hunting forums if they are worth the money....MY ANSWER is "YES".
They thread the end of the barrel and install it that way. You can have the whole barrel re-blued or just the brake....I paid to have the brake blued. You can remove the brake and put a plain section on if you want to shoot the gun with out a brake.
My gun is at my brothers house...many miles away.

Something i found critical to accuracy of sticks is the balance point of your rifle on the sticks. Experiment placing your rifle at different locations on the sticks. I found i am steadier at a set distance.I have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.

Hitting a 6" circle at 200 yards is my goal, whether it is off sticks, a bipod or rest.Time spent in Reconnaisance is never wasted.

I practiced with Trigger sticks to prepare for my 2nd African trip. Then I took them with me. My sons PH liked them so much he used some of his tip $ to buy them from me. I bought a new set when I got home. In a video recently I saw my PH also using the trigger sticks. Practice with what you will ctually ues is my advice. Bruce
