    MAgmaniac..

    I actually like the Badger break.. I caught a bunch of $hit for the break on a .308 but my reasoning is that here where I live the dirt is a sandy, powder like dirt and shooting prone can be almost like sand blasting.. and I do alot of shooting by myself if not all. so I need to be able to see my hits...

    The break works exceptionally well in recoil reduction and side venting the gases!
    I am more than pleased!

    WhoWhisper, What is the color scheme of your stock? Looks like something I might be interested in copying in the near future.

    Thanks
