OK....talk to me people. Interested in hearing from those that hunt with muzzle brakes. I wore out my heavy barrel on my 7mm Rem Mag. I ended up putting a #3 bartlein on it because I was tired of lugging a 15lb rifle into the backcountry. I’m not recoil sensitive in the least, but with the missing weight in the barrel I’m fighting some muzzle jump that I’ve never had to deal with before. I’m thinking about putting a brake on her to help manage the recoil and get the gun to track better. My question is: Have any of you regretted doing it? What kind of hearing protection are you using while hunting? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, advice and opinions. I’ve never had a braked rifle before and I keep going back and forth on the idea.
