Thanks for your responses in advance it is appreciated.
It is mostly a question you will have to answer because everyone has a different level
of tolerance to recoil.
Just because you have a high level does not make you tough ,it is just your tolerance
and a low level does not make you a wuss. just a more active nervous system.
Mine is about 85 to 90 ft/lbs (My 416 has no break but it is not fun after about 30 to
40 shots).Because it weighs 12 lbs I can shoot it without a break.
I personally don't like breaks but if the rifle is light and recoil is heavy then one should
install a break to help with accuracy and fun because if you have to think about how
hard it's going to kick then it will effect your accuracy.
And to answer your quertion from my perspective a 300 RUM that weighs 9 to 11lbs
does not need a break. If it weighed 6lbs it probably would .
It is not something that can't be added later so try it without one first and add it later
