Hi JP Hunter,
I had the same 300rem ultra magnum rifle, and shoot 200AB round at 3050fps without a muzzle brake, just with a recoilpad limbsaver.
I just got one time scoped by miy mistake, to close to the scope.
I just convert my 300UM in 338edge, and now I have a muzzle brake due to the calliber.
If you are not confident with the recoil, and you are jerking the trigger, then go with muzzlebrake.
On the market are 3 type:
- with holes all around (lots of dust if you are shooting prone)
- with holes on left and right side and top (the best for prone shooting) NO DUST after the blast. (JP muzzlebrake, DE Brake, Holland HQ, 308Nate Vport, are the best with up to 50-60% of recoil reduction)
- JP MuzzleBrake - the most effective brake on the market. Negative parts - bulky looks.
All muzle brakes ARE VERRY LOUDS AND YOU NEED EARS PLUGS to protect yourself)
If you are doing a search on muzzlebrake on this forum you will find a lots of reviews)
