Review: Strike Industries Cookie Cutter Comp .300 Blackout/.308

    A while back Strike Industries introduced their Cookie Cutter Comp in 5.56, I got a chance to take a closer look at one in .300 Blackout/.308. Admittedly the Strike Industries Cookie Cutter Comp has been sitting on my workbench for a while now, I didn’t have a .30 cal gun that had the correct 5/8×24 thread pitch. I guess this was as good of an excuse as any to pick up a .300 Blackout barrel and put together a SBR upper more suited to taking down feral hog here in Texas.

    One of the stock photos from the Strike Industries product page shows how great the brake looks with a carefully chosen handguard. After I dug through my bin of parts I came up with everything else I needed to assemble my test upper, unfortunately the rail I planned on using was 10″ long and the barrel was only 8″, I guess I don’t need a handguard to shoot it as long as I keep my hand clear. 18_5

    Taking a look at the specs from Strike Industries site it covers everything pretty well.

    The Cookie Cutter Comp features a large single chamber design. It also has some small ports to the front of the brake situated between the crenalations. Strike was kind enough to include a crush washer, good thing because I couldn’t find the right size in my bin of parts. P1020105

    The crenalations also make a decent glass breaker, if you are into that sort of thing.  P1020104

    Instead of having users insert a tool into the chamber to tighten the brake on Strike included flats for a wrench. P1020106

    Time to get it out onto the range. My upper looks pretty funny without the rail attached, it still shoots though. I must admit, the Cookie Cutter’s 7.9 ounces are kinda noticeable. cookie

    Taking my first shots with the Cookie Cutter produced quite a noise. Strike warns in the product description “It is NOT a flash suppressor. There will be significant side concussion so the shooter needs to be aware of hand placement and surrounding personnel!!!P1020137

    The Cookie Cutter does a wonderful job at keeping the recoil to a minimum.P1020127

    My only big grip with the Cookie Cutter is it’s considerable weight and bulk. When I tested the Triple Crown Comp from Strike they were able to provide some pretty outstanding results with a lot less bulk and weight. P1020147

    Strike Industries normally hits a home run with their products, I am not sure this is one of them. I am sure that there is some need out there that I am not seeing. It does look pretty cool though, I guess that is a great reason to buy one for your rifle.

    The Cookie Cutter carries a MSRP of $59.95. You can read more about the Cookie Cutter Comp on the Strike Industries website here.
