    They work very well as long as your not shooting prone. The radial style brakes will kick up a lot of dirt and dust and blow it all back on you. From the bench or for a carry rifle they work great.

    I don't own one, but have shot them. They are effective in recoil reduction, but as stated above they kick up a lot of dust

    I have one on a rem700 300wm, came with the rifle. Bought it used.
    It really tames the recoil, first rifle I ever had with one and it makes the 300 a puppy dog to shoot. As mentioned by other posters it can throw up debris, part of that depends on how low you have it on bipod.
    With the experience from this brake , when I had my 338rum built, gunsmith talked me into a tactical brake(holes only on the sides) helps with recoil and doesn't kick up a bunch of stuff when shooting prone.

    I think the VAIS will be fine for what your doing.

    Some breaks reduce recoil better than the Vais but it works great especially on hunting rifles
    for all round shooting.

    The large port breaks work a little better for recoil reduction,but I find that they still kick up
    some dirt just not as much.

    I have installed just about every GOOD break made and find that it is mostly a matter of
    what looks good on a particular rifle and what you like.

    The Vais is a good looking break when turned to the same diameter as the barrel and dealing
    with Ron Bartlet At Vais is always a pleasure.

    I have had good dealings with most of the guys that build breaks and they have also been good
    to deal with, So pick the one you like but have a competent gunsmith install it for maximum
    performance.
