Re: Cheap Brake Experience?

I have one on a 300 wtby, it looks like a Ross schuler brake, it works very well for the price. Similar to the holland. You won't be disappointed for the price.

    That is Ross Schuler. I have one on my 7mm WSM and really like it.

    I put a Kick EEZ recoil pad on my wood stocked Rem 700 30-06 last year and LOVE it. May do the same to this once getting a new stock, depending on how well the brake works.
    I would consider buying a new stock from Boyd's.

    They will add a Pachmayr Decelerator for $30 and you will be a LOT happier than you are now.

    Ordered that sucker, but in pepper! The wife wanted to keep it the black/grey color since the stock is black now. I was torn between the nutmeg and the pepper, but the wife swayed me. Thanks!

    I bought a brake from the guy listing them on ebay and put it on my 7mm RUM. He was good to work with on what diameter, hole pattern and thread size I wanted. The first time I shot the rifle at the range I punched out a 3 shot 0.18" 100 yd group with minimal recoil and reasonable muzzle blast. They are an excellent value.

    That's good to hear! I may pick one up after all.
