I saw in another topic that someone said that a muzzle break sends more of the noise back at the shooter. Does that mean that a muzzle break is not any louder in the woods? I always thought a muzzle break made the shot louder, maybe it doesn't. Anyone know for sure that the total volume is louder with/without a muzzle break?

Thanks.

Yep, LOTS more of it. I find shooting with a muzzle brake absolutely requires double hearing protection (plugs and muffs). Didn't even like shooting it once without plugs when hunting and can't see spending the money on Walker's game ears or something similar, so I sold my 7-30 with a brake. Lots of stuff out there that you can handle without a brake, so I'm sticking with that.

there are

Some brakes on the market that only raise the decible level 5 points
Depends on the type of brake and other things I do not understand.
What has the noise got to do with it?
I shoot with muffs or plugs.
Now depending on the brake the BLAST at the range might be a factor.
If you can handle a 454 casull in a revolver like the ruger then a brake on a 14" TC barrel is not going to bother you.
