Re: Noise Level from a Braked 338 RUM

I have a unbraked 338RUM myself, and have used it in the field and shot several animals without any damage to my ears.
I already have a reduced hearing, because of damage during my growing up. (Music, and bang!!)
And for that reason I choose to have no brake on my firearms, and use electronic earmuffs as often as possible.
I've heard a 338 Lapua with brake!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    It is possible POI will change when the brake is off. The only way to tell is to range test with and without, and record data. In the perfect world it should be the same, but I would check it first. My rifles with brakes are only fired with the brakes on.

    Why would you ruin your hearing shooting a braked .300 or .338. Get some plugs man.
