When would you use one instead of the other?
You can use the peel or crush. Ive tried both and the peel just freggin sucks.
Crush washer is much better. Throw it and chinch it down.

Crush washers and peel washers serve different functions. You use a crush washer if the muzzle device doesn't need to be oriented a certain way (indexed). You simply place the crush washer on the barrel install the muzzle device and torque to spec. The peel washer is really a stack of shims and is used when you need to align a muzzle device a certain way. You "peel" off layers making the washer thinner and allowing you to get the muzzle device screwed on to where it aligns correctly.
Second Amendment to the US Constitution December 15th 1791
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.
Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787

I must be using the crush washer in the wrong way. I tighten the muzzle brake down until it makes contact and then I tighten it with a wrench until it is the the correct orientation. This usually crushes the washer. I'm not sure about the torque. I've never had one come off.
This is the way I index muzzle brakes too, but I also use blue Locktite on threads just to be sure.

I dont see the point in using a peel washer unless you are using a brake that accepts a suppressor. Ive got my YHM Phantom and my Noveske KX3 both on with crush washers.
