  • Sidewinder vs APAs bastards

    Have a couple proof barrels on the way for my AXMC and need a couple new brakes. I have always used the LB on my 6&6.5ís and FBís on my 30ís and up. Anyone try the 338 Sidewinder Magnum brake yet? And if so how does it compare with recoil reduction of a Gen 2 Fat Bastard?

    I like the pva brakes better than the two you have mentioned. I have 2 mad scientist and 1 jet blast.

      Yes, I have tried the SW 338. By far the best brake you can buy.

        Area 419 brakes are hard to beat. His machining is outstanding.

            Went Sidewinder, I had a FB on the steel barrel so I figured Iíd try something else. If I donít like it Iíll just replace it. I have it in hand though and it seems tits!

                    I have an APA Gen 2, it performs quite well.

                    I wish the bulky lock nut was a low profile knurled nut, I use a strap wrench to tighten it anyway, and it'd look a lot more sleek against my Rem varmint contour barrel.

                      +1 on the Sidewinder by AREA419. Run it on my 300 winmag, and it is wonderful for recoil management. No issues thus far.
