Re: Best Muzzle Break for my gun?
We have 3 300 RUMS in our group, all have 3/4 inch dia Gentry brakes on them.
Gentry brakes are ported all the way around but 11 degrees foreward therefore no back blast, less noise than most brakes, and I have never had a problem with dirt in my eyes. We shoot 210 vlds at 3150fps in sporter weight rifles(8-1/2 lbs ready to hunt), and these brakes make it comfortable enough for my friends 7 year old boy to shoot in a t-shirt. That being said, brakes like Kirby,s painkiller, Jim,s muscle brake,or Hollands brake will further reduce recoil but make a lot more noise doing it. I personally think that the Gentry Quiet brake is the best compromise for a hunting rifle.
We put them on everything from 6.5 WSM's to 30-378's and have never regretted it.
