I made up some 2 piece self timing brakes for those that have pre-threaded barrels.

I bought a .750 diameter 4 port brake , for my 300 wby , from Nathan . it arrived yesterday . his turn around was so quick I was surprised . it was pouring rain yesterday , so I shot the rifle today . I was well pleased when I was looking at his machine work . now that I've shot it , I'm very satisfied . I've struggled with this rifle . sometimes I shoot it pretty good , other times not so much . the muzzle jump was ridiculous before with a radial brake . this 4 port seems to have calmed it down quite nicely . my computer won't load pics from my camera chip , so I can't show you how nice this brake looks . I did scan my target though . it was shot at 100 yards off a bipod in my field . I only had 2 of this load but they about went in the same hole . I need to load some more ammo to see how it keeps shooting this load . after I play a little more , I'll get the scope sent back to Leupold for a reticle change . the 7-08 was one shot off my elbows , just to check my zero for hunting . thanks again Nathan , your brake works as good as it looks .

I just want to say again how well Nathans 4 port brake has tamed down my 300 weatherby . I shot it more this morning . it's like shooting a completely different rifle .

Fotis,

I have some .765" 9/16x24 41L40 brakes that can be used on your rifle. I'd be careful about over tightening them because the barrel wall thickness will be pretty thin.

Also I'm doing a sale on all my 2 piece brakes until they are gone. I'm redesigning them so I'm getting rid of some the old stock. I have about 8- 5/8x24 and 30- 3/4x24 brakes. They are 60.00.

Here is my newest addition. It's called the Beast. A 3 port version reduces more recoil then my older 4 port brakes. They are pretty phenomenal at reducing recoil. My 7-300wm barely moves with the 4 port version on it.

I was playing with some finishes. One is just polished, the next has the ports and crown blasted and then polished, and the last one is just bead blasted.

I shot 3 shots out of my 338 Lapua today . I used a 300 grain accubond , with 100.0 grains of RL33 powder . this should give 2845 FPS according to quickload . all I can say is Nathan makes a great brake , it works . very nice recoil ,no noticeable muzzle jump at all . Thanks again Nathan .

Good to hear Jim. I'm glad you like it.

I did a test on my 458 Lott today too. This give a person a good idea of how much recoil they really reduce. This was a load with 300gr Barnes X bullets I had left over from shooting a bear 4 or 5 years ago (I thought they were 350's until I got home and checked the bullet box). I think I posted a video of the bear getting shot with it too.

Definitely a serious reduction in recoil energy. Pretty dramatic presentation.
