The one I have on my 338 RUM looks like an extended part of the barrel with holes in it. It is not bigger then my barrel. I can screw it off also for hunting.

Re: 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.

How could you even shoot that sucker with no recoil reduction? Ouch! There is also a risk of a detached retina in the eye from fierce recoil. A friend of mine suffered this from shooting his 338WM. My 338RUM got ported before I ever shot it. I know what a sporter weight 338WM kicks like from the bench, didn't want to know what the RUM would do!
Good luck in your search! ---Sam

I don't know if the VAIS brakes give max recoil reduction but the combination of recoil reduction and minimal increase in noise makes it the brake of choice for me. I also like the fact that there isn't any blast of gas back into my face (and scope lens) at each shot.

Re: Muzzle brakes

one bad thing about vais is that it has holes all the way around, which on big guns, when you shoot prone, kicks up a lot of dust, dirt, or little rocks. can damage your nice 1000 dollar scope lens. you should wear hearing protection anyways when using any kind of brake. I used the type that had 3 holes on top, and the sides, for a total of 9 holes, it was a score hi version, i think its comparable to the qd holland type. i'll be getting the qd holland type on my 300 rum for my long range rifle. my current 300 rum has no brake, and I shoot it fine. but i live in a sandy environment where the vais is not the choice for where i live, and i prefer to shoot prone over any other position.
