Hi ss7mm,
Thanks for the test. Just to clear things up for me you used a 5 baffle brake?
What are the prices for a 3 & 5 baffle brake?
Have you or anyone else tested the JP Recoil Eliminator against the painkiller brakes?
Do you think a 5 baffle or 3 baffle brake would be best for a 7mm STW built on a Rem 700 adl(light)?

Yes, as the pictures show, I have a 5 port PK brake.

Just to be sure, you should check with Kirby at APS about the price of his brakes. He can fill you in on all of that.

I have never used a JP brake. The PK brakes just came out so I doubt that anyone has tested them against anything other than what I did in this test.

Given what Kirby said about his design criteria and the size of the brakes, I'd say that he would tell you to use the 3 port brake on a 7mm STW.

Re: Testing APS PainKiller muzzle brake

Sorry to bring up such an old topic for my first post. Anyway, has anyone tested the newer Holland radial brake against the Painkiller yet? The QD really impressed me for its size. The Radial must be better. How bout throwing the DE brake and the Muscle brake in on this shootout too.
