Thanks to all who replied to my first question concerning the Radial brake vs Side Baffle Brake from Christensen. The Side Baffle Brake looks very desirable given its reduced muzzle rise and does a better job at recoil reduction. Next question. I realize all brakes are " more noisy" than rifles without brakes. Question is I have the radial brake on my 28 Nosler and I'm familiar with the sound blast. How are the ports directed on the Side Baffle Brake? Slightly forward? 90 degrees? Perceived muzzle blast about same? More? Less? for Baffle Side ported. Thanks for all your help. I like to hear from real users vs calling the manufacturer.
