The main gain was in the signature of the shock wave/pressure wave. It was practically gone
making the 50 very pleasant to shoot, and almost no muzzle flash.
We tested the rifle In the worst possible position, Prone and as close to the ground as we could
get to try and measure the recoil and the footprint of muzzle gases.
Unfortunately I tightened the brake only hand tight so I could change breaks for different ammo
and it wanted to unscrew (Cant imagine why).but if you notice even out of time the shooter was
still in the clear and well away from the pressure wave.
You cant see the how bad the factory brake covered us up with dirt and grass while shooting it
and how close the pressure wave came by us (Within 1 foot of each ear) Because we were trying
to look for muzzle flash and pressure wave and didn't have the camera on the shooters.
Another Plus, was the ability to keep the target in site 100% of the time while firing. this was a
new experance with the big bores and especally the 50 BMG and a 750 grain bullet traveling at
2820 ft/sec and 13,241 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.
My next test will be at dusk so we can see the extent of the efficiency of each port.
