What kind of break is that?

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Which has more Recoil 300 RUM Vs 338 EDGE?

I actually find the recoil in my 300 RUM to be more harsh with 180g than 200g bullets. The recoil with the 180s is 'snappier'...harder on my shoulder. I'm about 190 lbs and my RUM doesn't have a brake on it. I shot 14 rounds at the range last night off of the bench and I'm slightly sore today. On days when I go through 20+ rounds, I can definitely feel it the next day (or two).

I've thought about putting on a brake, but I'm concerned about ruining my hunting partners' hearing. So, I suck it up at the range. Never shoot more than a couple of rounds when out hunting, so the recoil is never an issue out there.

My 300 rum started out as a factory sendero which had the heavy fluted barrel I once shot several rounds from the prone position (no break) and I could definately feel it on the top of my sholder. I now have a DE brake on it and it kicks like a .308 or .243 . I could shoot round after round prone or from a bench.
