    T3 Terminator Muzzle Brakes

    Here is a picture of the T3 Terminator brakes.



    Beside them is 338 Norma Mag, 338 Edge, 7mmRum, 338 Lapua improved & 338 Lapua.

    I have tested this brake extensively against many others & it clearly comes out on top, firing well over 200 rounds in the process, mainly in 338 Lapua.

    This brake works exceptionally well with these & similar sized cartridges with 80-110+ grains of powder capacity.

    I will be making other brakes along the similar lines for other sized cases, 40-60 grains, 60-80 grains & 110+ grains

    I still have to complete testing on these other brakes to ensure I get as much recoil reduction from them as possible.

    Being a rearward ported brake they disturb the ground directly infront of the shooter a lot less than other types of brakes.

    This pushs the array of debris disturbed from the muzzle blast away from the shooter, scope & action, while shooting from the prone position.

    These are CNC machined from 420 or 316 stainless steel & are avaliable with various thread sizes from 9/16 to 20mm.

    As you can see from previous videos they reduce recoil extremely efficiently making the current trend toward lighter & lighter rifles very comfortable to shoot.

    Even my 12 year old city girl cope with the recoil developed from 300 grains at 2850+

    More pictures to follow when I have them fitted to a couple of rifles, Cheers.

    Nice looking bits of kit Greg.

    Can they be fitted to existing suppressor threads ?

    Yep no worries, depending on the size, I can make to order but that will take a bit of time or $$$.

    The thread can be made bigger by a competent gunsmith.

    I do have various threads on the big ones aready made.

    The smaller ones will have two standard threads so will be able to be opened up.

    Contemplating a dedicated LR rifle - either 7mm mag or 300wsm I'm thinking.... one of these would be the business on it!

    Yep I will make sure I have, I have been asked to bring the Barrett

    You will probably be better off with the smaller ones I have yet to finalise, time will tell.

    I have put one of Greg's T3 Brakes on my new Sendaro 300 - works amazingly well.
    1st shot i went bloody hell and the two people behind me went bloody hell - no recoil and LOUD
    1st muzzle brake that i have had - very impressed - able to see bullet strike on a wallaby on the weekend at 347 metres with 190 bergers.
    Spanners, 7mmsaum and cambo like this.

    Here is a line up of muzzle brakes I have tested with 338 Lapua magnum.

    From left to right least to most effective in reducing recoil.
    The two on the far left are in a dead heat for that position.



    The T2 did remarkably well, so will still be very acceptable on the bigger magnums with thin barrels, Rem LSS/SPSS in Rum etc.
    Thats if the T3 is not your cup of tea on a thin barrel.

    I had a go with gregs 7mm mag down the range yesterday with his 7mm brakes which I think he is in the final stages of perfecting and it certainly made the sps rem mag a walk in the park when we screwed the brake on. One of these will certainly be on my shopping list shortly for my 7 pound all up 280 AI.
    My shoulder highly recommends them
    I never think of the future
    - it comes soon enough

    What methodology/equipment did you use to objectively test your muzzle brakes against the other brands tested?

    I have fired several rounds through each of them, most of them on many occasions over the last year or so & recorded their average recoil movement in relation to each other.
    There is a small difference between some of the measurements, but it takes little movement for your shoulder to be able to notice.
    I can tell you from my testing that seemingly subtle changes to the brake can make a big impact to how efficently they work.
    Having fired over 250 rounds of 338 Lapua magnum & plenty of 338 Imp, 338 Edge, 7mm Rum, 7mmRm, 308 & 708, you can understand the cost in ammo & time is considerable, let alone wear & tear on barrels.

    I may do some suppressor comparisons, but initial tests have shown they reduce recoil less than a muzzle brake.


    I didn't just pluck numbers out of thin air like I see all the time, like reduces recoil by over 60% or another classic on TM by over 90%
