muzzle breaks are more than just for comfort even the .300 winchester with moderate use can cause retina separation from the eye ball its about your health also

"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."


I did two years ago. My 338WinMag has the recoil of a 308 as well. I am very happy with my muscle brake.

My Muscle Brake just arrived for my 300 WM and I can't wait to get it put on. While it is true that you don't really notice the recoil in the field, being able to watch your shot is awesome. Also, if you are really hunting LR, you should be practicing shooting like you will in the field, not from a sled.

I have a break on my 300. I didnt like shooting it without. I dont care for the noise of a break though. I just ordered a 7mm to try to get a happy medium. I will hunt without a break from now on, I think. I dont wear ear protection while hunting. I shoot about 20 shots a year hunting.

Re: Muzzle brake on a 300 Win Mag?

I've got a brake on my 300 win and i have brakes on most. Mainly due to the fact that I hunt alone most of the time and I just like to tame the muzzle jump so that I can see bullet impact at distances.
I use two---the vais and the dlask. Both work great.

Re: Muzzle brake on a 300 Win Mag?

I have to laugh when those opposed to brakes call those of us who enjoy the benefits of a better shooting rifle wimps. What do we call a guy whose afraid of a little noise? I don't use a brake because I worry about my shoulder. It is a fact that it is much easier to spot impacts with a brake and the rifle handles better. It is true I used to hate when a guy would show up at the range with one before I got one but I don't buy my guns to impress the guy at the range. As a hunting guide I have had to sit next to a brake while shading the shooters eyes more than once. It doesn't make me mad at all. What bothers me is when they miss or worse wound something. If it helps you shoot better I'm all for it.
