Re: A new concept in Muzzle Brakes

I've got 4 of the 3 port muzzle brakes and very satisfied with them. I don't have a 338 lupua, but I do have a 5 1/2 pound tc encore rifle in a 35 whelen. This rifle was scary to shoot in fact if you were in tree stand, and had to make an out of position shot you would probably be taking a trip to the ER for some stitches! With the muzzle brake on this rifle, it is now very manageable. I would now take some out of position shots and not worry about getting hit in the nose, or eye.

The real reason I bought this muzzle brake is from the video. It shows it doesn't let the percussion hit you. I can tell a big difference in the percussion level hitting you with this muzzle brake.

Also Jim See gets to thumbs up. He gets you your muzzle brake fast.

Re: A new concept in Muzzle Brakes

My buying experience with Jim was terrific! A few months ago I purchased two three-port Muscle Brakes from Jim and had the two brakes installed on a .308 Win and a .338 Fed barrel for my Savage Striker specialty pistol, pictured immediately below.




I took the gun out today for her 'baptismal' shooting session (with the .308 barrel installed) and the recoil reduction performance of the Muscle Brake was simply superlative!






I would recommend Jim's product in a heart-beat, without hesitation!

Gary, hows the 338 federal doing velocity wise, I'm thinking about a light rifle in that cartrige. Have you shot the 160 barnes or the 180 accubond?

Hello Jim!

Sorry to report, but I've been so very pleased with the SP's performance in .308 that I simply have not gotten around to swapping the barrels to shoot .338 Federal through her.

Sounds like you need another action and stock.

Re: A new concept in Muzzle Brakes

Are you still selling those things Jim LOL
I was just talking with some new shooters at the match I had on Sunday and I was telling them about your/my brake on the 338 WSM. I kind of saw some disbelief in their faces about how well it works. So I'll just have to bring it along next month so they can see in person :-)

Take care,
Mike
