How important is seeing the hit

This is another video I had promised.

In this video the effects are clearly evident if the wrong brake is used/chosen for light weight barrels.

I have no evidence of the effects on bedding because this has just been identified and long term effects are not known.

We messed with changing the top port size by plugging all but one and on one we plugged all 4 and the results were not conclusive . The 1 that we plugged all but one still exhibited excessive down force and the one that we plugged all top ports acted normal for one that did not have any top ports in the beginning (No Big Surprise)

It appears that if you want this feature you should start with one very small hole and ream as you test it, enlarging it just enough to hold the muzzle down and No More.

I like everyone else, thought this was the cat's meow, until I started seeing the results in slow
motion. This could also explain the broken stocks .

So hear are the results for everyone to see so they can decide what they want from a brake.

Nothing personal or pointed, just more information.

Dang, that's interesting.

Makes sense, "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"... Be it vertical or linear

Wow - that is an eye opener. Scariest part is that it makes perfect sense. How the heck would you tune a brake with top ports, trial and error?

Re: How important is seeing the hit

Thanks for taking the time to put together an educational video. Would be interesting to see what would happen if you did the same test with a suppressor.

That's pretty much what it would take.

I figured on trying a very small hole and using the camera and keep drilling /reaming it until it was neutral.
(A long slow process for sure) or tap one hole and try different plugs with different size holes in them.

The problem with that , if you wanted to change loads it would change again.

So I just decided to do without top ports and practice follow through on each shot.

On The one 300 that was bending the stock, we discontinued testing in fear of braking the stock.
