It is sooooo interesting that people take cartridges known for being low recoil and think they need a muzzle brake either because of sales pressure or the latest-cool-thing. That brake functions by redirecting gases (and therefore noise) in a different direction. Guess where? Right onto the shooter next to you.

Ear plugs for a shot in the woods?
