Default muzzle brake for 308?

What do you guys recommend ?

I bought a Precision armament m4-72 for a 308. I installed it on a Sig 716. Loaded 4 rounds in a mag and shot it. First 3 rounds knocked my hat off and the concussion was so bad I felt like I had been hit by a 500 lb calf. Needless to say that thing is coming off tonight. I ask the dealer about the way the cuts were angled backward and he said the gas would form a "V" and with me in the center, so very little gas or concussion would get to you. Boy was he wrong...One good thing the recoil was about like a 556.

So I am on a hunt for something that will work...don't mind the noise, want less recoil but I don't want to be in the middle of a tornado either.

Precision Armament M11. That’s what I run. Does not angle back. Works great.

All of them are loud. The lil bas tard I run on my 6.5cm, and I have never felt any gas back from it except when I let a friend shoot it and I was standing to the side.

For a brake that doesn’t have to be timed and turned on a lathe, I’d go with a lil ******* or the area 419.

I'm pretty happy with the Area 419 Hellfire.
Super easy to install with it being self timing.

if the OP doesn't like rearward angled baffles due to the blast, he's going to hate the APAs.

Man the PRB blogs are pretty stinking good. They do a lot of good testing and give pretty simple easy and summarized results.

yep. very helpful using actual measured data. when i was searching for muzzle brakes, i wanted a good mixture of recoil reduction without to much rearward blast.

The best firearm related purchases I have ever made. Be sure to get a good rimfire can as well.
