I will second Nathan Dagley's v port 2 of my shooten buddys and i have sent our barrels to him all in 300RUM a huge difference in recoil and the v port on top helps alot with muzzle rise. We didnt notice and change our groups. Good guy too..

I use Nathan Dagley's V-port brakes and highly recommend them , they work great are installed properly and perfectly and have a very destinctive desgine , all for about half what your smith charges.

here is Nate's site Welcome To My Website
This is Australia, land of the huge mark ups :mad: QRW rings for you $55 us $145, Barrel for you guys $300 us $750 it sucks when you see how much stuff is in the states compared to over here, especially with our dollar so close now.

Hey James,
Thanks for that mate, what a coincedence. Nates brake is the one I got quoted for and got sent a pic so tried googleing the name but no hits. Just another example of our mark ups $75 for brake and $65 to fit = $140. Special ozzie price $300US.:eek:

Ihave an idea of how I'd do it but wanted to see if there was an easier/better way.
Get one of Shawns and you will be plenty happy my friend. Take it from me... I own one and it turns my edge into a pussy cat to shoot ! Just make sure you get the right profile to suit because Shawn makes several.


With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.
