Brake effectiveness?

Ernie BishopErnie Bishop Senior MemberPosts: 7,044 Senior Member
I was able to video my son at a LR shooting clinic this past spring right before he turned 17 years old.
He is shooting at 550 yards, with a center-grip Remington XP-100, chambered in 7mm SAUM (Short Action Ultra Magnum).
Federal 210M primer, H-1000, Federal Brass, slightly cleaned up in the neck, with other case prep done. 162 A-Max at 2759 fps
The brake here is a 1st Generation Holland Radial brake. Holland's has since improved it to like what BP is using.
His spotter is new at this this and they are learning to communicate with each other effectively.
My voice is heard as well dealing with form issues primarily.
He is holding the XP quite lightly, and he is shooting RH, while it is a LH H-S stock-Not an issue with the effectiveness of the brake.

    That dude do bark. But the brake is working very well in my opinion.

    That was their first time to work together.
    I think you just want me to send you my son, period:wink:

    Yea I know!
    If he ever decides in that direction, I would put him in your care.

    Well, yes. I'll take good care of him. He can shoot already. We'll turn him into a HOG.

    What is the actual difference between a compensator and a brake?
  • Ernie BishopErnie Bishop Senior Member Posts: 7,044 Senior Member
    I don't know if I have a good definition for you.
    They are used interchangeably by some.

    That brake is doing a very good job on that pistol.
