    I had Kirby send me a Painkiller, Just had to get a smith to mount it for me. The plus side to it is a HUGE reduction in recoil, my 358 Norma mag now kicks less than my 270 win. No exagerating here, I shot 68 rounds in an afternoon as fast as the barrel cooing would let me in a t-shirt. Not too bad for a 9 1/4 lbs gun. Previously I could only shoot 6 or so before I started to flinch. After 10 I usually just gave up. Now the downside to it is it is loud, even in the field. I shot a whitetail doe this fall with it without any hearing protection and I kind of wish I hadn't. My ear is still ringing 3 weeks later, won't be doing that again thats for sure. If you want a great brake for range use I would definately recommend the painkiller, but either get a thread cap made for it and take it off for hunting or make sure that you and anyone near you have ear protection on when you shoot

    I have several brakes from various mfgs.

    Holland is hard to beat. They are very effective and minimal dust.

    They are usually in stock at Midway.

    No brake produces less noise for the shooter than the un-braked rifle itself.

    If you want quiet, get a suppressor. Otherwise, you should wear hearing protection with or without a brake.
