Good choice. Life has left me with the use of my right arm as well as a 75% loss of hearing in my left ear=Dont be that guy!! A brake(just make sure there are no holes on the bottom) is loud but it takes a lot of weight to make up the differance. Ear protection is a great idea anyway!!

I was shooting my 223 Ruger VT the day this pic was taken. With its long barrel I usually dont ware ear plugs. There was a couple prairie dogs standing tall right at a mile so I got behind the 50bmg but forgot to put my plugs back in my ears=BAD MISTAKE!!

    Is that an Anzio?
    If it is what configuration is it. Any special features on it?

    Mike, The pic does not show it, but this tube has taper. The rifle as is with bipod and no ammo weighs 15 1/2 lbs. Tube is 27 1/2" The colors are Olive, black and gray. I dont remember the percentages but a guess would be 70 olive and 15 , 15 on blk and gray.

    I just took a badger with her @ 632 yards in a farm field. All I can say is, a badger is not very tall and the 300 Berger cleaned his clock. And Mike, it was indeed a complete pass through with a dual blood trail. However it was a short trail.
