Anyone compare the amount of flash an AR-15 would have with about a 16 inch barrel and no muzzle device compared to one with a flash hider? Just trying to compare pros and cons of post and pre. And this query is assuming you are using a pretty low flash load.

With a normal A2 flashider the flash is still quite noticable on a 14.5" M4 profile barrel. With a bare muzzle on a 20" HBAR the flash is gigantic. Big enough to engulf your head. Then with a vortex on the 14.5" barrel the flash all but disappears. These were completely unscientific tests performed using regular factory ammo (Federal IIRC) Take it for what it's worth.
