300 rem Ultra mag

I have just purchased one and want to make some changes , I have all ready have a new stock and wanted to know what is the best , to have the gun ported or install a muzzel brake , I have been told not to have the barrel cut which I agree , this will be a hunting rifle , also the barrel is 26" right now . thanks

ports releave pressure before the bullet leaves the barrel. most are designed to push down. some say they increase harmonics.
breaks work both by releaving pressure and by pulling the rifle forwards. if you look at them they are like a hollow chamber not just ports. i prefer breaks

In my experience, porting does not reduce recoil, only muzzle jump. I use a Vaise break on my 300 RUM
