I'm thinking more like a pressure sensing device against the recoil pad, or better yet without a recoil pad.

Sweet vids Nate, thanks for sharing.

My analysis --

To my eye anyway, the Xtreme seems to have slightly more recoil reduction, however the angled port brake seemed to reduce more muzzle flip.

Any chance of a hybrid of the two concepts? Basically an Xtreme with the ports angled like the second brake?

These are impressive videos. Glad your site now supports these Len.

I've never shot a braked rifle before. But I've got two on order and having seen these videos, I'm really glad I decided to go with the brakes.

Nate... Isn't that hard on the ears to be off to the side when you touch off those rounds? Hope you had more than that rabbit fur hat covering your ears Thanks for the videos and I can't think of a better way to market a muzzle brake to those who haven't used them before.

No probelm. I sent you an e-mail with the three links. If they don't work let me know.

Yes, I agree on the handgun. I'm in the process of building myself a 6.5 WSM
on an XP100R. but it is on hold as I've been doing a whole bunch of upgardes to make my shop more efficient.

P.S thanks again for the new software. I just thought I would try it and it worked! I very much appreciate all the upgrades.

I love the way our new software plugin enables automatic embedding of the video clips. This is the first time I've seen Photobucket clips shown. It works with about 15 different hosting sites.

But...now I screwed it up and only 2 of the 3 are functioning as embedded. I don't know why.

I ended up letting several guys shoot it and handing out all the cards I had of yours.

Your shop looks great , I'll have that packaged up and mailed out this week , had to find a box worthy of the material inside
