    if you can handle a sporter weight .458, you can handle an 18 lbs .338 Lapua. You should even be able to spot your own shots.
    That said I sometimes shoot my 8.5lbs .338 rum without a brake, but I REALLY like to have it on (only take it of backpacking because my old pack was a little short).
