    I'm going to the Grand and think I would like to get either a Breako or Dead Mule anti-recoil devise installed. What are the advantageous and disadvatageous of each and which vendors carry and install them?

    You can install either yourself. If you want it done there, most any of the gun repair vendor's can do it. I have had both. The Dead Mule is 9ozs. and let's you access the stock bolt with out removing the device. The Breako is a little heavier at 10ozs. and works fine. I prefer the Breako only because of the extra 1 oz. 10ozs. seems about right for me. You might prefer 12 to 14 ozs. That is up to you. Hope this helps, Roy

    Hoosier is right...you are simply trying to increase the weight (mass) that the recoil effect is trying to move. Best Regards, Ed

    Agree, for the most part recoil reduces add weight to reduce recoil. For truly reduced recoil you have 2 choices in my 320K target experience. Send the gun to Wilkenson, Allor or Eyester and have the bbl. tuned (-$500) or buy a fitted to you, moving/collapsing stock ie. PFS or McCarthy or 1 or 2 others which is adjustable to absorb recoil($1000) Either works. Like most of our equipment, you get what you pay for.

    don't alter the barrel as it will only devalue your gun.

    Barrel alterations cannot alter recoil. Recoil is based on weight of the gun, weight of the payload, and pressure (velocity). Nothing else. Recoil is calculatable and barrel alterations are not a part of the formula. :)
    Forcing cones, porting, etc. do nothing to change the weight of the gun, the weight of the payload, or the pressure. Bottom line.

    Save your money and simply pour lead shot into the stock cavity.

    None of the recoil devices do ANYTHING more than add weight.

    I posted a thread about two years ago in which I researched all the reducers and posted the results.

    It's simply F=ma. Force is reduced by adding "m" mass.

    Think about it: Pour lead shot into a sock and then drop the sock. Do you noticed any "bounce?" Of course not. It is a heavy mass and it in short form, absorbs the force of hitting the ground.
