Your not over thinking, that was the point of the design, and from the feedback I get it is working as designed.
First to last == relative to the direction the bullet is travelling???

Those were the numbers I was thinking of cutting on a three port to give it a try. Thanks for the info, I need to get a few more brakes soon, now that me and everyone I shoot with are spoiled
