Beast 1 Piece Brakes

 My stainless brake prices are going up starting tomorrow March 1st. The combination of increased shipping cost, increased material cost and increased tooling cost means it's time to raise prices. The 1 piece brakes up to the Beast brakes will be 85, 90, and 95 for the 3, 4, and 5 ports respectively. The 2 piece brakes will be 110, 115, and 120 for the 3, 4, and 5 ports. Those are shipped prices with credit card/Paypal fees included. The Super Beast 5 ports will be 115.00 and the 6 ports will be 130.00. If I have decent tool life through this run of titanium I won't raise the prices on them. 


As a general rule, cartridges up to 45-50grains of powder burned (not capacity) are best with a 3 port brake. 4 ports are good from 50 to about 65-70 and 5 ports are the most effective above 70 grains. This doesn't mean you can't run a 3 port on a magnum, but you will lose effectiveness, or it won't reduce as much recoil as a brake with more ports. As you go really small, .750" and smaller, the 4 ports work better on the calibers with powder charges in the 40-50gr range because the port sizes get small enough where they can't vent off enough gases with only 3.


Examples of 3 port calibers are: .308 win, 7-08, 6.5 Creedmoor, .243 win, 22-250, etc

Examples of 4 port calibers are: .25-06, .270 win, 30-06, 6.5 SAUM, 7 SAUM, 7 Rem mag

Examples of 5 port calibers are: 7 RUM, 300 win. mag, 300 RUM, 338 RUM, 338 Lapua, etc.


These are the thread sizes I recommend on barrel sizes in these ranges:

Below .540" is 7/16x28

Between .540 and .630 is 1/2x28 unless you want to turn it flush and then it's .670" and up

Between .630 and .700 is 9/16x24 unless you want to turn it flush and then it's .750 and up

Between .700 and .850 is 5/8x24 unless you want to turn it flush and then it's .800" and up

Over .850" is 3/4x24 unless you want to turn it flush and then it's .950" and u

Baby Beast

If you look at the picture you can see the difference in a 4 port Lil Beast, 4 port Baby Beast max port 5/8x24, 3 port Baby Beast max port 5/8x24, and Baby Beast 1/2x28 regular port. In testing on a 6.5 Creedmoor there is very little difference in the max port Baby Beast and the Lil Beast brakes. I will get the test video up soon. The Max port 1/2x28 brakes have the larger ports like the 9/16x24 and 5/8x24 versions and can't be turned down.


The 3 ports are 2.22" long, .750" OD, and are available in 1/2x28, 9/16x24, and 5/8x24. The 1/2x28 max port, 9/16x24 and 5/8x24 are no turn brakes and the 5/8x24 are .100" longer then the others. They can be tapered just not turned down. They weigh 2.5 oz and are $85.00 shipped


The 4 ports are 2.67" long, .750" OD, and are available in 1/2x28, 9/16x24, and 5/8x24. The 1/2x28 max port, 9/16x24 and 5/8x24 are no turn brakes and the 5/8x24 are .100" longer then the others. They can be tapered just not turned down. They weigh 3.0 oz and are $90.00 shipped

TAC Beast

These are only available in 3 ports and were made for AR-10's and RPR rifles. They started out as .825" OD brakes and tapered to .750" but I'm in the process of changing that to .800" OD tapering to .750". The length was 2.22" but it will most likely increase a small amount when I run the newest version. I'm currently out of these and will run more soon when I do the Super Baby Beast brakes.


These are out of stock until I do the Super Baby Beast this spring.

SUPER BEAST

 I redesigned the 5 ports a bit to give better performance on the smaller magnums like the 300wm and 338 Lapua. If you look at the picture you can see the 3 and 5 ports have smaller ports then the 6 port. The 6 port is geared strickly towards the big boomers like the 375 Cheytac and similar. All of them are 1.235" OD. The 3 ports are 2.35" long, 5 ports are 3.52", and the 6 ports are 3.94".  I only have a handful of the 3 ports in 3/4x24 done. I have about 40 blanks for 5/8x24 that I will make after the holidays. They are 87.00 shipped. I have the 5 ports in 5/8x24 and 3/4x24 in stock. They are 115.00 shipped. The 6 ports are available in 3/4x24 and 7/8x20. They are 130.00 shipped.

Lil Ti Beast

These are coming soon. I will do 3, 4, and 5 ports. The OD will be .860-.865. The material size is .875". Until they are made I won't know how much I need to turn in order to clean up the material. Most likely it will be .865". I will make some in 1/2x28 and 9/16x24 for people that want to use them on steel barrels but most will be 5/8x24 for use on the smaller Sendero Lite type of contour carbon barrels.

The 3 port .935" Ti Beast are only available in 5/8x24 and are 1.9oz. The 1.01" Ti Beast are 2.5oz and available in 5/8x24 and 3/4x24.

Slab Beast

I had some blanks so I made the smaller 4 port version first. The rest are still a few months out. These are 1.1" wide and about .873" tall. They weigh 5.1oz and the port height is almost the same as the 4 port Beast. It's actually .025" shorter but .112" wider. In testing they performed basically identical to a 4 port Beast on a 300wm. These are 97.00 and are available in 5/8x24 threads.
