Muzzle Device Knowledge

Muzzle Devices offer numerous benefits to the shooter including allowing for more accuracy and quicker follow up shots.   Reducing Recoil is often the primary goal and while low recoil reduces muzzle rise it does not totally eliminate it.   A well-designed Muzzle Device will incorporate features to address Muzzle Rise as well.   Reduced Recoil and Muzzle Rise are both accomplished by redirecting expanding gases.   It is important for the shooter to understand that redirecting gas has consequences.   Redirected gas away from the bullet path helps accuracy and speed for the shooter but also creates more sound, concussion, and unburnt gas particles to contend with.   It is vital that the shooter understand the Redirected Gas Path (RGP) for the Muzzle Device they choose.

 

RGP direction and volume are determined by the Muzzle Device ports.    The more gas volume that is redirected the higher the performance of the Muzzle Device.   Many high performance Muzzle Devices can turn gas at an extreme angle rearward and the shooter must be comfortable that body parts are positioned on the firearm so not to be negatively impacted.   It is important to understand that RGP is not accurately definable as different ammunition using the exact same firearm/Muzzle Device combination will vary.   Atmospheric pressure, temperature and elevation also effect powder burn and expanding gas effects in the RGP.

 

Ultradyne offers different Muzzle Devices that redirect gases at varying angles to provide a muzzle device option for every shooter.  With this being said, it is important for the shooter to understand their proximity to the Muzzle Device itself and determine if the RGP will cause problems.   For example, the RGP on a traditional M4 16” barrel with a combat forearm equipped with an Apollo Max will bypass a 5’9” shooter totally, however the RGP on a gun that is equipped with a fully extended hand guard and 20” barrel could possibly impact the arm of a 6’6” shooter that uses a fully extended arm style grip.   It is truly up to the shooter to determine the ideal set up for an acceptable Redirected Gas Path (RGP) for the ammo, firearm and individual shooting style to be used.

    Got just in time for my next match. Timed it and chronod. Worked perfect on the bench. Using this in a PRS match worked flawless. Did not have massive gas hitting me in the face. Did have a huge amount of recoil gone. Much faster on my follow ups. And easier to view misses for wind correction. Will be getting more for my other rifles.

  2. Drew

    Works amazingly well, helps keep sight picture Is very loud on a 22″ barrel but I love it.

  3. Bill

    Works better than I thought it would on 6.5 creedmoor, now kicks like 22mag.

  4. DAREN

    Placed on my 6.5 Grendel mini action and now it purrs like a kitten, as far as recoil. Roars like a lion with the report. Just don’t have a seat to either side of the loud end. Only issue I had, is in watching the tutorial, the wrenchs recommended to tighten on my rifle, the sizes were incorrect. Mine took a 7/8 for the brake and 15/16 for the nut.

    Put the Apollo Max on my Savage MSR Long Range 6.5 Creedmoor and this is by far the most effective comp I have had on this gun. I have had other comps on this gun, but the Apollo hands down works the best for reducing recoil and the ability to see your bullet impacts. It’s easy to install and the fit and finish is top notch. Good job Ultradyne, great product.

    First things first I just want to say the Ultradyne Customer service team is the best there is. I placed an order for this muzzle brake and contacted them to expedite the order so I could receive and use it for the weekend at the range. They expedited shipping super quick and I couldn’t have been happier.

    As far as the muzzle brake itself, I was absolutely shocked at how much the recoil was reduced on my rifle. It made my rifle stay on target unlike anything I’ve tried before shot after shot. One word of caution, is just that the angle is so rearward, the gases from each blast may be slightly uncomfortable on your arm. Other than that, the quality and finish of the product is worth it especially for competition purposes.

  7. Sean

    Absolutely amazing. It seems like my 308 had almost no recoil. Great product. I’m not a big review person but I was so thrilled with your product that I had to take time to give you credit

  8. Jody (verified owner)

    I use the Apollo Max on my 6.5 Creedmoor PRS rifle and it works extremely well. Being able to stay on target after a shot for your follow up shots is critical. I would definitely recommend to a friend. In fact I am building a 6.5 hunting rifle for my father in law and am going to put the Apollo Max on his rifle. As a side note, Ultradyne does not sponsor me or give me any free stuff to say this…but it would sure be nice if they did!! hint hint LOL
