I Magna-A-Port my .300's. Probably not as effective as a brake but, it still tames the recoil. Hearing protection still a must .

Re: Muzzle brake on a 300 Win Mag?

Rarely does anyone shoot less or shoot worse after having a good brake properly installed. ...most shoot more and better.

Whether you use a lead sled or remove your brake for hunting, you need to verify your POI under the same conditions as you hunt.

Brake or not, wear hearing protection.

Re: Muzzle brake on a 300 Win Mag?

The brakes alot of times are threaded on. So if you want for hunting, you can just use rifle w/thread protector,and have it both ways. I hunt with a set of those earplugs on a plastic semi circle , I walked up on a bull this year,and took the split second to put them in, hang on my neck

Re: Muzzle brake on a 300 Win Mag?

I agree with Richard brake or not hearing protection is a must. I myself am not a big fan of brakes (except on cars those are a life saver ) I always use a sandbag between my rifle and sholder when at the range. I have been made fun of several times but at then end of the day after shooting up to 100 magnum rifle rounds in different calibers my sholder does not even know that we went to the range. You could also work up a load with a lighter bullet that would help as well.
If you do get a brake and do any prone shooting make sure you get a side discharge or else you might get a face full of dirt.

Check out the Muscle brake at Centershotrifles.com I have one on my 338 Ultra mag and it kicks like a 308, makes it really fun to shoot.
