Re: What makes different guns sounds different? (In same caliber)
The brake is the biggest impact on the sound; barrel length 2nd. The velocity of the bullet is a factor too. The brake diverts gases at angles, so the direction that you would "normally" hear them is changing drastically.
Probably not a great example, but it is somewhat similar; think of the muzzle brake kinda like a reverse thruster on a jet engine.
