    I would recommend Holland's new Radial brake or Kirby's Pain Killer.

    I've have a Holland and have had similar brakes. I now have a Painkiller made by Kirby at APS and there is no comparison. The PK is the best I've ever had at reducing recoil. I have compared the same gun, with and without each brake and the Painkiller makes the 7mm AM just sit there at the shot.

    No I haven't. The PK works so good I don't think I need to look any further. I can launch a 200 gr. 7mm bullet at 3400 fps and the rifle just lays there. Spotting sure is easy now.;);)

    Dick,
    Thanks for the response.
    I know Kirby's works that good.
    I saw the video clip when you first did it.
    I was curious if you had done a comparison with Darrell's new one on your rifle.

    I too have a "baby" pain killer on my 7mmRM. I know, I know, a 7mm RM doesn't really need a brake, but I was suffering from "brake" envy with all the discussions on here about them, so I had Kirby install one on the 7mm he tweaked for me. The difference is night and day. It is more like shooting a swift but what recoil there is , is straight back so it is really easy to spot your shots/animal reactions. Like ss7mm, I need look no farther.
