this is exactly where I stand !
years back when they first came out, I picked up a Win M70 in 300 Win Mag with the BOSS muzzle brake, it worked as advertised, reduced recoil and you could actually tune your bbl to your load !
the drawback was that thing was extremely loud and made a small tornado of dust and crap after every shot .... I really didn't care for brakes until my brother got a side ported brake installed on his 7.82 Warbird in 2002, it was night and day difference between the two brakes, a big WIN for the side port brake !
I have the Defensive Edge style of brake machined into the extra inch of all my barrels now and since have discovered the Muscle Brake made by Benchmark Barrels !
I have it on my 375 Mjolnir and my 90 lb 14 yr old daughter can shoot it all day long !
This brake is also removable via the set screw on the side and can be thrown back on quick as needed!
