    Whats not to like about the DE break? It looks pretty good in the pic, though I can see the transition from the barrel to break a little (sometimes it cant be helped). Did DE put the gun together?

    Either way it looks like a nice rig. Im looking at rebarreling my .338 RUM to an Edge soon.

    The reason your brake isn't working very well is because it is turned down too small to adequately handle a 300grain bullet. Change to a larger brake and it will tame the recoil down.

    I use one of Ross Schuler's one inch diameter (round), three port and it is great on the edge. I have never understood why folks turn them down to match a small barrel. In any of the baffle design brakes: the more surface area or diameter for gasses to impact on the better. How big around is that brake?

    I see you have my favorite rings.... Warne Maxima. A real PITA to lap but once lapped and aligned, the best gripping rings made.

    Nice rug too. I collect Kerman designs in hand made Persian.

    After doing some research a lot of people told me that with this particular break in this caliber, I should expect a recoil like a 30-06sprg or similar, but this damn thing kicks like a mule. It's not like i'm getting rid of it because of that. I'm just a little disappointed.

    I had my gunsmith to install a Wyatt's extended magazine box, but can`t fit ammo larger than 3.700" Maybe the wyatt's detachable magazine will allow a little larger bullets.
    I'm only complaining about the looks of the ammo, looks a little odd with the bullets seating so deep, but the groups are amazing (3/4" @ 325yds). This was with the first load we tried. Hopefully we can get a tighter groups with more press work.

    All the work was made by my gunsmith back here!!

    It`s around .680" I bought it with the barrel to a buddy here @ LRH. He gave me the barrel with the brake already turned and installed. I personally like the break to be bigger than the barrel, specially the ones that are a little squared.
    Between the Defensive Edge and the Muscle Break which one do you guys think would be better??
