break on a 338 rum sendero?

unfortunatly i don't have enough money to build my lr gun all at once but if i buy a sendero in 338 rum, put a scope on it and a good muzzle break how much do u guys think recoil would be reduced by? gun would weigh about 10 lbs i guess. maybe a year or 2 down the road i'll change the barrel, have it rechambered to a rum imp design and put a mcmillen stock on it. right now i would just buy an of the shelf sendero, a long range leupold scope and a muzzle break.

Re: break on a 338 rum sendero?

The brake will reduce the felt recoil by at least half.

When you get ready to have another barrel put on (in the same caliber) the Muzzle brake on the Sendarow can be used on the new barrel. All you will need is the new barrel and the stock of choice.

With the 338 RUM and heavier bullets you WILL need a brake.

Call Ray Romain---814-265-1948 he will put a real nice KDF brake on for you.

HH 338:

I have listed a link to a website that has a recoil calculator so you can dump in the data of the 338 Rum and get a baseline of felt recoil, cut that figure in half and compare it to other rifles/cartridges combos (such as a 8lb .243) for a comparasion. Works for me..

C'mon Darryl, my .338 RUM weighs 11# with scope and doesn't kick hard at all with the 250 Noslers... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Chris

Put the 300 grainers in and go to the bench and fire 30 rounds.

Check out you shoulder after your done. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
After that, put a break on fire 30 more and watch how much tighter your groups are.

Re: break on a 338 rum sendero?

thanks for the feedback guys!

anyone have any thoughs on a Vari-X III 8.5-25x50mm Long Range M1 scope? that's the one i kinda picked for this rig.

doesn't kick hard you say? how fast are you shooting those 250gr noslers? i shot a 338 rum at the range using normal 250gr remington ammo and they gave my shoulder quite a work out [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: break on a 338 rum sendero?

Just kidding about the recoil, guys... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I traded into this gun --already built by John Ricks. It does wallop you pretty good, but it is a carry rifle I plan to hunt with and *may* not have my muffs on, hence my reluctance to install a brake. If it was a heavy bench gun, there would be no question. It would have already been to Mr. Romain for a KDF...
I can speak for Darryl and myself on the Leupold LR 8.5-25x50-- great choice for a LR Hunting rig...I have 2 and I know Darryl has several.
