7mm Remington mag brake question

I'm considering having a Holland brake installed on my 7mm rem mag for the purpose of spotting shots. My question is will it be worth the added noise? I hunt alone a lot, so being able to spot my own shots would be nice. So for those of you with a similar setup who have brakes on them, would you do it again?
Thanks, Jon

    Yes, Darrel's brake are certainly worth the money.

    Be smart though and use ear protection when you can and that way when you get to my age you won't be saying "huh" so much or listening to the high pitched whine on quiet nights and bells ringing the rest of the time.

    I agree on both counts.

    And, that's true with or without a brake if at all possible.

    I get the Holland news letter and they just released a new hardened stainless brake. I have las years model on a couple of rifles. I ware plugs and phones for bench rest. I have considered getting the instant off head sets for this years deer season.

    Nathan at www.straightshotgunsmithing.com makes a great brake. I've fired mine many times without hearing protection, it is loud but not like other brakes. Also it reduces recoil alot. It is on a 7mm rem mag pushing a 168 berger at 3065, 26" barrel. Check them out!!
