KYODE as soon as the barrel comes in I will have it threaded, and the HLR Brake fitted. I have not picked the brake up yet. I am considering the 4 Gill version like I had installed on my 7.62X53R. I had a 3 Gill installed on my 35 Bullberry barrel. It really helped, but the 4 gill seemed to work better.

I may have Brakes installed on my Scout 357 Maximum, and my 6.5X30JDJ barrels at the same time.
I am not going to shoot any of them without hearing protection, so the added noise is not a factor. It is really nice to be able to have one hand on the grip, and the other hand on the rear bag without worry about the gun getting away from you.
My first Brake was on a 375JDJ barrel twenty some years ago. I was not all that impressed with it. The gun still recoiled hard, and the brake just made it loud.

I got all seventy some rounds of fire form ammo fired this afternoon at the range. I fired a couple at 100 then moved back to 200. Then I used the Heavy Plex Transition Point of the reticle held on the top of the plate at 250 with the light bullet loads. When I got to the last 51 rounds loaded with the 170 FP bullets I had to hold about 6 inches higher. The plate had a big gray elongated ball in the center when done. I was stringing them up and down a little.
I now have 96 rounds of formed brass to work with. The remaining 5 rounds are no doubt in my brothers hunting gear in an ammo wallet from his last season hunting with a rifle. I have had him handgun hunting for four years now. I will probably run across them in the shop sooner or later.

I am looking forward to seeing what the Hornady 135 FTX bullets will do. I may need to build another Fackler Water Box to check bullet penetration depth and expansion.

RE MOUNTING MUZZLE BRAKES ON 30-30 AND 357 MAX CONTENDER BARRELS, A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE IS A GEORGE FAERBER TYPE "QUAD PORT" BY MAGNA-NA-PORT. I DID A QUAD-PORT ON A 12 INCH 357 MAX CONTENDER BARREL AND A 15 INCH .308 ENCORE BARREL AND IT WAS ALL I NEEDED, AND I AM VERY RECOIL SENSITIVE WITH CONTENDERS AND ENCORES.

45MAN I have a good friend who is a gunsmith. I am getting the 3 and 4 Gill HLR Breaks installed much cheaper than the normal customer cost.

I got the barrel in from MGM. As normal it looks great.
I will have to wait a few days to get the brake installed. Inventory at the hardware store is cutting into my free time for a few days.
I should be able to get the brakes picked up next week.
