Re: New toy

I know radial brakes work...The BOSS on my A-Bolt II 7 Mag kicks like a .243...If even that much. The only downfall to a brake is that the muzzle report is exponentially louder.

Re: New toy

I think the brake is doing its job, i dont wanna add weight as i have a couple heavier guns in .338 and larger. This was supposed to be my sub 15lb hunting gun for the year. I have a ton of guns and dont consider myself a collector i am a shooter and its just fun to play for me.

Re: New toy

update, just got back from range today and played with it a little more. I shouldered it a little more than I am used to (I am a benchrest guy). I also seated the bullets up just touching the lands and shot a couple of sub 1/4MOA groups. I may just end up keeping this one.
