I have the utmost confidence that it will be a realy good brake but your idea of letting other people
test it is a good one.

I will let you know when I get them and we can get one to you.

Sir, you have a deal.

Re: Prototype Muzzle break

Great video and good idea. I would be interested to see the brake in action with a wet sock over the brake. Also are you considering adding set screws and index marks, would make it nice for using a suppressor?

Re: Prototype Muzzle break

Anything cloth near a muzzle break will be shredded, that goes for skin too.
I shoot over the hood of my truck with a vias type break and put a towel down to keep the blast from burning and pitting the paint, if you got withing 6 inches of the towel it would rip big holes in it. A lotta hot gasses coming out of those things.

When I do the night/dark test it may answer your questions.

I have/am considering using a set screw with belleville washers for those that don't have a
Gunsmith handy, But I prefer the shoulder to shoulder make up and timed (I think it looks better).

If you look at the video there is little or no disturbance under the break (Fresh cut grass with
lots of clippings with the prototype but the factory brake will cover you up.

Index marks are easy to add after the brake is installed.

Re: Prototype Muzzle break

How well would you think this brake would tame a 7-7.5 lb 300 RUM shooting 180 grain bullets? 30-06 level?

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

One of the objects of this break was to direct the gas as far as possible away from the shooter.

There is no down or up gases, only horizontal to lower the signature of the flash and pressure
the wave and move it away from the shooter.

I would caution against shooting over the hood of your truck unless you want to drive home
without a windshield (On the high intensity cartriges the shock wave will/may blow out the
windshield) also tail lights can suffer the same results while shooting off the tail gate.

Re: Prototype Muzzle break

I always wondered what a side discharge break would do to a windshield on an aggressive caliber, guess I will pass on trying to find that one out.
I know the circular breaks do not function well from prone, only took me one time to figure that one out in the dirt
