Muzzle brakes

Which muzzle break gives maximum recoil reduction? I have a 338 Ultra that weighs in at 7 lbs and was wanting to give one a try.
Thanks

    The JP probably is the most effective (clamshell type) but a lot of people dont like the looks.

    Look under compensators for the JP model and you can click on videos for thier video on the JP model.

    Then theres me wich I'm odd so that probablly explains why I like the looks of the Jp brake. I have one on a 300rum and I could shoot it all day long given good ear protection.

    Your not alone screech,I like the JP and will be having Kirby install them on a couple projects.
    It wouldnt be my first choice on a carry gun though.I think for carry,I'd give Holland a try.

    Cool Now I now that I'm not the only one. They do bring lots of attention to your gun when hunting though.

    I have not used the JP, but have used the Holland QD brake. I highly reccomend the Holland. It is a good looking brake as well as being very effective at reducing recoil. With large slots on the sides and no holes on the bottom it does not kick up dirt when shooting prone.

    I have 2@ 300 RUM (one custom by Kirby), a Kirby/lilja custom 338 & 375 RUM. After shooting my 375 RUM at the range one day, I switched to my factory original a-bolt stainless stalker 270 WSM and quickly got "magnum eye" and shoulder. I sent the 270, my other 300 RUM to Kirby for a Holland QD brake. All I can say is my 375 RUM kicks about the same as my .243 Win (it is heavier, sporting a 30 Lilja #8 contour)
