    I wasn't happy with the way it was shooting 1.25" -1.5" at 100 yards with a bunch of different factory ammo.
    I had Jerry (J E Custom) tune it up for me. I also had him install on of his muzzle brakes as the factory one didn't seem to help the pounding much.

    What a difference in how it shoots and on the recoil now.

    I took it out while I was sighting in my muzzleloader for an upcoming hunt and tried the same WBY factory 180 grain X-Bullet ammo that shot 1.5" before and shot less than 1/2 MOA on 3 3 shot groups in a row.

    I cant wait to try some handloads through it and see what I can get it to do at long range now.

    Thanks again Jerry for the great job, fast turnaround and great advice.

    Thanks Rich.

    I love it when a plan comes together. After tuning your brake it went from 37.8 Ft/lbs of
    recoil to 11. 3 Ft/lbs of Recoil with the 210 Berger's loaded to max.

    The big 30s respond well to the tuning The brake for a specific load.

    +1! You're too modest ... and following the rules of engagement :cool:

    Folks, that's some serious recoil reduction there ... just saying! lightbulb

    Thank you also ED.

    Just to let you and some of the folks on this website know, I will be posting the latest video
    that will confirm those numbers in about a week.

    I have tested some other brakes to see if they could be improved buy tuning and only found one that showed any improvement (Less than 5 %) because of it's design).

    There are some downsides to tuning (No free ride) and I will address/clarify those on the video.

    Thanks again
