Delta Brake FAQ
Q: How does the Delta Brake affect accuracy?
A: The brake will not negatively affect accuracy. It will reduce or eliminate barrel jump, thereby improving accuracy.
Q: Is the Delta Brake caliber-specific?
A: The brake is designed for any magnum caliber from .270 to .300, and for non-magnum .300-class calibers (e.g. .30-06, .308, etc.).
Q: What is the average percentage of recoil reduction?
A: For magnums, it will be more than 75% reduction, and in the non-magnum .300 class you will get about 50% reduction.
Q: What magnum loads is the Delta Brake most effective with?
A: It is most effective with the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum (a.k.a RUM or Rem. Ultra Mag), .30-378 Weatherby Magnum, .300 Weatherby Magnum, and .300 Winchester Magnum (Win. Mag).
Q: How is the Delta Brake different from a standard cylindrical muzzlebrake?
A: The Delta Brake is designed to use the gases that propel the bullet down the barrel more efficiently. It uses turbine blades that redirect the flow of gases backward and up. Cylindrical brakes with holes around the body redirect only a small amount of gas sideways, so they are not as efficient. They also result in an unfavorable dust signature.
Q: What is the dust signature of the Delta Brake?
In other words, how are the gases directed in relation to the shooter? A: The dust signature of the Delta Brake is minimal, because the gases are redirected upward and sideways. Therefore, shooters can use it in the prone position and still have a clear line of sight for a faster follow-up shot.
Q: What is the benefit of using more than three ports on the Delta Brake?
A: Through extensive testing, we found that our brake is a lot more efficient with more than three ports. Also, the blast decibel increase versus a gun with no brake is less than what you would experience with a brake having three ports or fewer.
Q: What materials are available for the Delta Brake?
A: Delta Brakes are currently available in steel (black oxide finish), stainless steel (light gray matte finish) and titanium (light gray finish).
Q: What thread patterns are currently available on the Delta Brake?
A: The standard is 5/8-24. Special requests can be accommodated at an additional cost.
Q: Why are two set screws used on the Delta Brake instead of a flush barrel-mount attachment?
A: The Delta Brake is position-sensitive, and has to be oriented horizontally relative to the gun. The two screws lock it in place.
Q: What type of warranty does Delta Brake offer?
A: We offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
Q: Can I purchase the Delta Brake from your website?
A: Yes, you can use PayPal to purchase directly from the on-line store.
