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

I have a Ruger American Predator rifle and its factory threaded with a a cap at 5/8-24 - its a 6.5 Creedmoor - would you have a 2 piece brake to fit it ? Thks RJ

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.

Black rifle is my 300 wby , the brown rifle is my 338 Lapua .

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.

Here are some more I did with a 308 and 300 Weatherby.
