Was afraid of that. Haha, you'd figure for such an expensive rifle it wouldn't have issues like this. Appreciate it.

Any suggestions on getting the gunk off? Been using sweets 762 and a wooden pick but some of that stuff is stubborn as hell.

tonyben and another member here came up with putting a washer in between to fill the gap. I did it and it made a huge difference in accuracy. Of course the inner diameter must be big enough for the bullet and as far as thickness, you want file or sand the washer's thickness down until you get a 5:30 lock up

Interesting, makes sense. May be good to do in the meantime. Was also thinking maybe try the delta p with the sme, y'alls have an opinion on those things?

If by 'gunk' you mean carbon, almost anything works better than Sweet's - Kroil, KG-1, Slip 2000, some even use CLR (Calcium, Lime, and Rust remover).

What kind of washer, stainless, brass, carbon steel? This fix seams to be a whole lot less expansive route, than the Delta-P

Late for the train. I don't understand your problem.
For dickjames214: Wot chu mean, ". . 5:30 lockup?"
Which end of the muzzle brake is the face, front or rear?
Surfaces A and B refer to my pic. The brake is about 3/16" forward of seated position.

There is a surface (B) on the brake immediately forward of the castle nut which seats against a shoulder (A) on the barrel, about 1/10" from the muzzle. When the brake is seated, the gap is about .020".
Do you expect to improve accuracy by seating the brake against the muzzle? It could be an interesting experiment, but this is a modification I have never heard of. Tho it sounds like something I might try.
You could move shoulder (A) about .020 rearward to seat the brake on muzzle face.
However, If you move the muzzle brake a smidge toward the rear, you might have a problem with the splines.

Or you could order a spool of flight line. View attachment 482974

We are talking about the SOCOM not the standard rifle.
