Best comp is too subjective dependant upon each shooter.
Some great comps include: JP tactical comp, Rolling Thunder, SJC Titan, Surefire MB556K, DPMS Miculek. There are many others that perform as designed.
I've personally used the JP, Surefire, and DPMS on .223 rifles and can't tell much difference in the three- they all work well. I haven't seen many of the other you listed at major matches, but that doesn't mean they aren't effective.
Generally a comp that is designed to provide some qualities of a brake and some qualities of a flash hider perform both functions decent, but neither function great.
You're in Etown, right? Bring whatever gear you have and start shooting 3 gun up at Wilmore with us. Next match is May 26. If you need to borrow any gear, PM me, I'd be glad to help get you out there.
Maybe I should change it to whats your favorite comp thats worked best for you? I am really interested to know more about this - PRI MSTN comp and how it stacks up to the more common breaks/comps. Im also wondering about the PWS FSC556 Tactical Compensator since Ive seen it around a lot.
I will definitely PM you. Thank you.
