HELLO EVERYONE, NEW TO THIS SITE. HERE'S MY QUESTION. I OWN A 340 WBY. THAT CAME WITH A FACTORY BRAKE. LET'S SUPPOSE I SIGHTED IN WITH THE BRAKE, THEN I REMOVED IT. IF I'M USING THE SAME LOADS HOW WILL THIS EFFECT THE P.O.A. ASIDE FROM THE OBVIOUS INCREASED RECOIL, AND, MUZZLE JUMP. THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.

Can't be predicted.  You are changing the barrel harmonics.  Will just have to try it and see.

I agree to a point with the fact that the POA "MAY" change but I really doubt it. The barrell harmonics will not change it for a kill zone hit but if you are talking MOA accuracy then consider what your involuntary flinch and jerk might do when you touch one off. On my .338 W/mag with hotloads my POA did not change when I took mine off so this is what I am going by. The .340 does kick hard and lift is inevitable without your brake. Trial and error. Get a good decelerator pad and I don't think the animal will ever know if you used the brake or not. Good luck!!
