Default modern sporting rifle rule clarification

Are there restrictions to the type of muzzle brake used?
With so many companies making barrels called varmit, predator, match quality, and other descriptive words, what is CMP's definition of a match barrel? These barrels are all on standard production rifles. I don't want to buy one and find out at Camp Perry that CMP says it is a match barrel.

Muzzle brakes are banned in competition. They are extremely annoying to the guy shooting next to you.

Do you mean the "modern military" match?

Brakes are still going to be banned.

That takes care of muzzle brake. Any ideas on how CMP will decide what is or is not a match barrel? I'm looking to get a upper with a 16" barrel on the rifle for the 200 yd. match. Most of the uppers I looked at are varmint, predator, match accuracy, or some similar description intended to point out the barrels inherent accuracy. I talked to a CMP rep. and was told no match barrels, but she wouldn't or couldn't tell me what makes a barrel "match".

These days? Ask about a specific barrel via email. The rules just aren't written well at all.
