Muzzle Break Question

My brother is picking up a Rem 700 in 300 RUM tomorrow it has a light weight 26 inch barrel on it. He was telling me he was going to put a break on it at some point. Now here's my question. I seen an article that had a video attached a while back about putting a break with top ports on thin barrels and the damage that it could potentially cause to the stock and or bedding. Has anyone else seen this or have an opinion on this so I can pass the info on to him so he doesn't end up making a bad choice when he goes to have one installed.

Thanks everyone in advance

Re: Muzzle Break Question

Never saw a brake with top ports on a standard factory contour sporter barrel do damage to the stock or the bedding.... But then again.... If you search the intrurdnet long enough, I suppose you can find some data to support that hypothesis.

Poll some of the custom rifle smith's that are sponsors on this site, and I think you'll find it's not an issue.
Better yet, poll some of the custom stock builders and you'll get a more precise answer, but "no" is still "no".

"Carry on"

I ended up finding the video I was looking for in the video review section on this sight. It was done by J E Custom. My recollection wasn't 100% right. He never said it would do damage but that it has potential. Thanks for the response.

Dang. I just pm'd Jerry and was going to post it in your thread. I have 2 assassin brakes. Jerry has done some very extensive research. He has documented his success. Go to YouTube and type in jecustom101.
