Re: A new concept in Muzzle Brakes

Morning Mike

I might find a heavy hitter to try it on. The 6 pound striker project with the ultra pencil thin hunting barrels is where its at for me right now.

Scott Null has one of those 17" barrels in 300Win Mag and has four brakes including Kirby Allens PainKiller brake, Nat Dagley's, Vais and Jim's original he is currently testing on his rifle action.

I am waiting for Scott to get finished and ship my barrel and brakes back to me. I will install on the rear grip handgun stocks and test those four plus I have four more to test.

As you know I hunt exclusively with the 338 Calibers, 338 WSM,338 Win Mag, 338 rimmed. The real test for this new brake is my 338 X 378 Improved on a rear grip handgun. The back blast concussion currently with calibers using the big Weatherby case and those short barrels is enough to ring my ears while using earplugs and ear muff protectors over the ears.

Dang, so much to shoot and so little time before Moose season.

Neal

    Jim- I got a brake that may not end up suiting my needs. If it doesn't your new brake sounds like perfect medicine. Can you post an image of what it "might" look like. I assume the next one to come is intended for rifles?

    jmason, The larger brake has not been finalized yet but will have the same internal apperance as the Muscle Brake with the addition of another angled baffle. The dia. will be increased to 1.5" and may be offered round or slabbed off. It leaves options for those that are using large dia. barrels to keep the same profile on the brake.

    The Muscle brake will replace the current brake on my 300 Rum, for rifle testing. I suspect it will perform better than the current brake on that rifle. I'm waiting on a barrel but when ready I will be using is on a 338 lapua and a 7mm Rum. The features that make it a great pistol brake will also due well for rifles.

    Jim

    Got a barreled action and a barrel headed your way tomorrow. Barrel has been marked TDC For the Savage.

    A third in 338 Breakopen is also coming in the box. Want them all flat Jim. No holes in the top yet.

    Add 2 more for the big break Jim!
