I've still got to try the 180 E-Tip and Accubond in my .300 RUM. If it shoots them well enough, I may not change calibers.

Re: 300 RUM or 338 RUM?? Which and why???

There are a couple of reasons I dont like brakes, the biggest being the greatly increased noise factor. My rifle are carry rifles and my preferred method of hunting is spot and stalk. I carry ear plugs with me when I'm hunting and if I have time, I'll put them in before taking a shot. But I have had a lot of situations where I haven't had time to put them in and keeping earplugs in while spot and stalk hunting just doesn't cut it. It's really not an option for my style of hunting. Another less important reason is the added weight and length, mostly the length. I like my barrels to be as long as practicle for velocity and carrying which would be about 27" maybe 28" for me. So using a brake is a tradeoff in velocity for my type of hunitng. They aslo come with a price $$$

Please, somebody, donate some of those 177's to the Nevada test so we can get some real numbers on them.
