Thanks Len.

Rifle weighs just over 14lbs. with scope, bipod and sling.

7-300wsm pushing 180 Berger's at 3,030fps.
The only rifle I had to do a quick test. I wanted to make sure I didn't have too much porting out the top, but it seems to move real straight and doesn't seem to kick down. I would much rather see a little rise than kick down. Should be testing this shortly on a new 30 cal. (308nate) I'm designing. This brake should work perfect for my new cartridge.

308nate

Re: New mini X-tream brake by SSG

Very nice , that is about the same weight as my 308 and it certainly looks like it kicks less running those 180 Bergers out at 3000+fps than my 308 does shooting a 168gr at 2700fps , very impressive.

so what about this 30 cal , I'm thinking that my next rig will be a lighter weight longer range hunting gun , I'd like to shoot some of the new Henson 180gr bullets out in the 3200+ range , that combined with a BC in the .700 range should be able to get me to a mile on deer?
Was origionaly thinking a 30-338 Lapua improved but I'll wait and see what your cooking up

James,
It's not a 30-338 Lapua improved, but itshould have about the same performance with a little less powder. I'm thinking 180's will go over 33 in a 26" tube.Will be testing shortly.
