MGM Brake Effective?
Has anyone used the brake MGM offers on a boomer? Looking for real world experience preferably with straight wall cases. Still thinking about an Encore .444 pistol barrel. Let me know what you know.

I personally don't have one with an MGM brake but have shot a 15" MGM with brake 460 S&W, the only other 460 I've shot with a brake is a 15" OTT 460 S&W while the MGM brake is not quite as effective as the OTT brake it still tames the recoil nicely, you get a some back thrust with very little barrel rise.
