Ok, don't beat me up for this question. But can anyone recommend a clamp on style muzzle brake for a Savage Axis 243 ? My local gunsmith measured the diameter of my barrel and said it was to small for him to drill. So I thought I would try to get a clamp on and do it myself, just don't know which to try. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I don't know that there are many options. The one I hear mentioned most is this one:

Question-it's a .243. Do you really need a brake on such a light cartridge?

No, don't really need one, just I'm 50 years old and suffer from a torn rotator cuff from a fight I was in, work related (I work Law Enforcement) and the older I get the more it bothers me.

May have more luck and be a little less expensive to have a really good recoil pad put on it to absorb it better??

Get a tripod. The weight of tripod will reduce recoil significantly. Heavier the better

Bogpod death grip(leo program through guide fitter and govx)
Reaper rest(pretty sure they have a LEO discount, since owner is a LEO)
Hog saddle
Or just arca plate/tripod/head combo

A clamp-on brake will induce stresses on your barrel, affecting its harmonics, point of impact and accuracy. Plus, it may not stay on.

Your barrel's muzzle can be threaded for a screw-on brake.

The least expensive option is to get a slip-on recoil pad like the Allen Recoil Eraser or have a Pachmayr Decelerator or Limbsaver pad installed. Thew stock may need to be shortened to allow proper length of pull.

I think you need to start over.
What I mean is knowing your shoulder injury will not improve invest in a better quality gun with all the latest recoil reducing devices.

Good barrel
Good trigger
Good stock
Good recoil pad
Good break
All these thing matter.

Example:
I have a .338 Edge sending a 300 grain SMK bullet with 90 grains of H1000 powder pushing it and I'll let a 10 year girl shot it.
Recoil is manageable.

Christmas is just around the corner, this may be your time.
Good Luck.

That sucks-thank you for your LE service. I would look at a PAST pad for your shoulder, a good recoil pad for the rifle, and the lite ammo mentioned above.
