Timed muzzle brake on a large cartridge caliber in a rifle is your friend.

Actually--I was firing it held upside down above my head. Watched

Recoil was pretty straight, but there was just a bit of muzzle dip. Not
difficult to shoot at all. Now--HITTING clays shooting that way, not so
easy. I'm guessing Tom practiced that shot just a bit.

Take a tube and bend it into a perfect "S" shape. Put a pivot in the center that allows flow from the pivot/stand through the "S" tube. Now submerge the device in a tank of water and pump water through it and out the ends of the "S". It rotates in a counter-clockwise direction (if viewing it as the "S" is properly oriented).

Next suck water into the device at the same rate. What happens? It still rotates but in which direction? Is the direction of rotation caused by the water flowing into the ends of the "S", or is it caused by the centrifugal force of the water pushing on the curves in the "S"?


The experiment has nothing to do with the OP, I have always just wondered what the answer to the puzzle is.


Muzzle rise is a direct result of the centerline of the barrel being well above the shooter's wrist, which becomes the fulcrum causing the muzzle to rotate (not rise) off of the wrist. This is the basis for the Chiappa Rhino with the round being fired from the lowest chamber on the cylinder rather than the highest chamber resulting in greatly reduced rotation.

muzzle climb is because of recoil.

It really is simple. For ever action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Your shoulder is not flat and square to the boar is it? Nope so it acts like a pivot point. Not all guns have upward muzzle climb either. Look at an AK ever see the muzzle break on it? They are tilted to one side.

Though Every gun must have recoil to be accurate.

I built a 22 K-Hornet and put a 1.5" 28" barrel on it thinking it would be the most accurate gun ever and look cool too. It had zero recoil I mean you could put it on the rest and set the trigger off and it wouldn't move. That rifle had worse groups than a 6" barreled shot gun shooting bb shot at 60 yards. I had the barrel turned down to a more acceptable contour same barrel and everything. We did this by turning it and shooting it the more recoil we got the better it shoot until we got a 5 shot .02" 100 yard group.

What does "timed" muzzle brake mean? First time I've heard that, just curious.

On a muzzle brake with top/side holes (not the type with holes all around)
you rotate the brake to cancel the recoil force vectors.

Typically for a right handed shooter the gun recoils up and to the right.

Rotating the brake clockwise (looking from the butt) aligns the top vent holes
to cancel both the up recoil, and that little flip to the right. Most of my
AR's with brakes have the "top" of the brake at somewhere around the
1 o'clock position.

That person is an idiot. If he had the first clue he would understand. It is a product of geometry and leverage

Recoil can't be be cancelled. Felt recoil maybe?

Comments? Personally I am just a wee bit skeptical.

"The actual physics that cause the barrel to rise is the the spin on the bullet (i.e. the twist rate) - change the rifling to the other direction and the barrel would go down not up. I think that the concept of rifling a barrel must have been invented in the northern hemisphere by right handed people."
OK, let's say you have standard 4-groove rifling. Wouldn't the barrel also

be inclined to twist CCW, because only one groove and land is facing

up at the end of the barrel.

Direction of rifling twist has no effect. All forces due to bullet rotation and twist are equalized in the vertical component.

Bore Axis relation to the grip causes this rise.
