Re: .308 good for hunting?
Hey Parlnan, I have a few different rifles in 30 cal with different muzzle brakes. It took me a while to find the one I liked best. I still want to try OTT Fish-gill on a big kicker. I have the Holland Brake on my Rigby, and use Weatherby's accubrake on my 30-378. I almost use exclusively the multi-port brake, cut down to barrel diameter. My 300 with 180's recoils less than my 270 with 140's (no brake). My 15" 308 Encore with it on recoils about like a S&W M19 shooting 357 magnums; not much at all. They are loud and not always recieved well at covered ranges-the 30-378 usually makes people wait between shots. I do have a unbraked Rem 700 SPS in 300 win mag and to me it is brutal, and my 700 in 300 RSAUM kicks about like my '06. I usually pick up one of my 30-338's instead, but they're all fun to wring out.
