Re: 338 Edge on a Factory Striker

Zeb, the best part about the Muscle brake is that the concusion felt with most every other brake is absent with the muscle brake. By design the brake cuts off the back blast.

I did do some decibel testing with a sound meter from my wifes work place.

On flat level groun, grass covered, with the measuring instrument placed next to my right elbow, facing the muzzle, while shooting off a small table.

My unbraked 260 remington measured 119.4db
My 7RUM w/ Muscle brake measured 122.1db

Re: 338 Edge on a Factory Striker


Not sure what you are looking for in Velocity. I am very happy with 2900+fps and the 225gr Accubond. I am a hunter first so with the .550 BC this handgun hits with 2200foot pounds at 500 yards. It will take anything I need for it to do. I just loaded up fifty rounds and I am standing pat right where I am. I have more case capacity but the accuracy is exceptional.

That Muscle brake was built for handgunners. I too have shot many,many brakes and can't take the back blast. This brake has zero back blast as Jim has indicated. Go to and watch the rifles print pattern in the grass of this small brake on a 7 Dakota. The owner actually watched through the scope while the bullet impacted the target.

I use H4831
