Which brake for a .300RUM

I want to try a muscle brake on my new .300RUM build. Should I get the 4 port or 4 port magnum? CSR site says that the 4 port will work for the Ultra's, but would the 4 port magnum be a little better at recoil reduction?

My personal preference would be the 4 port in slab. You can also call Jim for advice.

I have a SSG extreme brake on my 7 ultra and it works great.

Re: Which brake for a .300RUM

Don't have one on my 300 rum and won't go there... It took me a couple of days after using my factory braked 300 win to get my hearing back after shooting my deer on an into the wind shot this year. I'm thinking of getting rid of that brake; it's my only one.

Try the Gentry Quiet Brake or Shrewd Varmint brake.

I have both and they both make the sound of the shot far less piercing on the shooter's ears than any other brake I've tried or seen, and it is considerably more pleasant shooting with either than with an unbraked rifle.

The Shrewd is not as good with recoil reduction but if you are shooting prone it eliminates dust and debris blowing back in your face since it's a side discharge only. The Gentry is a 360 discharge.

Both however throw the sound forward and out yet are still very good and reducing recoil and muzzle flip.
