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.

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

Product Spec 300BLK / .308
– O.D.: 2.14”
– Weight: 7.90 oz
– Thread: ⅝” x 24
– Materials: Steel
– Color: Matte Black

Package include
– 1 x .223 Cookie Cutter Comp.
– 1 x .300BKL / 308 Cookie Cutter Comp.

-Large Single Gas Port expels gas on both right and left sides.
-Heavy-duty parkerized finished steel construction
-Unique functional design.

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.

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

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

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.

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!!!

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

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.

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.

    I keep looking at this comp for my 300 BLK pistol because, with a 10" barrel the overall length comes in at 25.5". I'd rather have an A2 or something else, but it's not easy finding a muzzle device as short as this cookie cutter comp. I'm open to suggestions if anyone has one.

      @rumblestrip If you want a small brake, look at the Rainier Arms RMC. They used to make a 30 cal version, maybe you can still find one.
