Thank you for your thoughts and input..


There are a lot of good muzzle brakes out there and they will all reduce the recoil by 35% to 50%
and make most rifles feel Tame.

I do have at this time what I think is the most efficient from a recoil standpoint of all the brakes.
I will post the results of the latest test for recoil reduction on a 300 RUM in the next day or two.

The test was made on a "Tuned" Assassin brake and produced a whopping 70.2% recoil reduction
for a total recoil on a 11.5 pound rifle ready to go hunting (Scope and all) of 10.5 pounds of recoil.

PM me if you wan't more info.

    JE That's a very interesting video! Thanks for sharing that. I put a muscle brake on my rifle, and like how the first slot is not angled, it makes it so that I don't feel any of the concussion when the rifle is fired, and I enjoy that a lot in comparisson to some of the other brakes I own.

    I have 2 assassin brakes. One on a 7mm RUM and on a 300 RUM. Can't wait to get them on and head to the range. Jerry has done lots of research on brakes. I would purchase a assassin and never look back.
