Just picking people's brains on this one. As you know, muzzle brakes can be a sacrificial baffle for a suppressor by taking the beating of the unburnt powder and blast eroding the baffle. The SD-556 that I bought comes with a flash hider which I don't want and AAC is selling their Brakeout 2.0 or Muzzle brake for $75 on sale atm. I'm torn between which one I want. Many people who use suppressors from me reading around run 10-12" barrel 556 so the obvious answer is the muzzle brake for the sacrificial baffle. However, the Tavor with it's 16" barrel does help a lot in the unburnt powder department. I also worry that a muzzle brake might damage the (shroud?) of the can since it directs a heavy blast directly to the sides.

I want to want the Brakeout 2.0 because it looks nicer but I am going to run the gun mostly suppressed. Logically it points towards the muzzle brake but is there any argument that it wouldn't matter because the barrel length helps a lot with the unburnt powder eroding anything it touches?

See attached photos of my SAR 16 with the Brakeout 2.0

Also, with a SiCo SAKER 5.56 can attached.

Iíve got the Brakeout 2.0 on four different barrels; one in 5.56 and three .30 cal (7.62 NATO, 7.62X39 AND 300 BLK on the SAR-16.) No problems mounting them. I recommend that you spend the coin for the AAC wrench that fits on a socket drive torque wrench and is used to torque the brake onto your barrel. The right torque makes a difference for centering, durability and not over-torquing or twisting your barrel.

Works fine on the rifles. 5.56 still gets a supersonic crack, but the 300 BLK with a 220 gr bullet is stupid quiet. Sounds like my MP5. I like the Brakeout for the ease of on / off with the can and the repeatability of the mount and resulting lack of POI shift. Iíve not noticed blast issues. The SAKER cans in 5.56 and 7.62 are so tough youíll probably never wear them out unless you get overrun by the Taliban.

And for those sharp-eyed folks; yes - I moved the EoTech gear to my 300 BLK rail for shorter range use and put the 1-4x ELCAN on my 5.56 rail. 200 yds for the 300 BLK, 600 for the 5.56.

Thanks. I ended up going with the Brake instead of the Brakeout flash/muzzle. I find myself suppressing the rifle 99% of the time in the future and I've seen some videos of the Brakeout 2.0 and the flash is even worse than some muzzle brakes.
