I have a Ross muzzlebrake on my RAR and it tamed the felt recoil a great deal. Its a very pleasant rifle to shoot with a recoil about the same as a .308 win. Am i just imagining this ???? What are the opinions of some of you other folks regarding Ross's brakes ???

It's not your imagination. Compare the bare 450B accelerometer measurement on page 2 of this thread versus the measurement of the Ross brake on page 9. John Noonan (gunnut) put a lot of time and money into measuring recoil using different mitigating methods into that thread. I copied his 2 cavity concept in one of my A2 stocks and later one of my A1 stocks. That impulse modifying technique, paired with a Ross brake and a recoil pad makes my 450b a sheer delight to shoot in a tee shirt. Even a 100 round range session leaves me no worse for wear and tear.
