I just installed one on a 338 ultra mag in the rem xcr, when the costomer gets it shooting I will ask for a report on effectiveness. so far the mini magnum has been selling very well.
I'm in the process of having a 338 RUM built around a #4 Hart barrel as a relatively lightweight long range elk rifle... did you ever hear back from your customer about his 338 RUM xcr?
Has anybody else used a Mini Magnum on a relatively light weight 338 RUM? Probably not going to have the efficiency of the original 3-port or the bigger 4-port muscle brake, but I'm thinking it's still going to be more efficient than just about anything else you could install on a #4 or smaller barrel... ?
