Re: muzzle brakes for 300 win mag
There are lots of breaks to choose from, and they all reduce felt recoil by 30% to 50% depending
on there design.
Looks are important also and you need to decide what you like the best on your rifle.
The more effective the brake the is , the more noise and shock wave it produces. And the quieter
the break the less effective it is at reducing recoil.
The most effective style of breaks is the "Fish gill" (Like the big 50s have) with the baffles angling
backwards, but they are the loudest and produce the biggest shock wave.
Next is the large ported brakes with baffles (Like the Holland,DE,Pain killer,Muscle ETC) and are
very popular with the long range crowd with the larger magnum rifles.
Smaller breaks with drilled holes make up the rest and depending on there design(Baffled or not)
are the least effective but are considered the best looking by some.
I have and use all types depending on the application and looks on certain rifles.
For hunting rifles I recommend the quieter style of breaks, and for prone shooting the large ported
breaks with no holes on the bottom and maximum effectiveness.
If you don't like to were hearing protection (Not recommended with any shooting) then no break
