I'm looking for a little advise from those with experience. I just was lucky to purchase a 300 Rum Sendero. It's an early 2000 model that was purchased, new HS Precision stock put on by a good smith that pillar bedded with complete glass action, adjusted the trigger. It's been sitting in a gun safe 10 years and was never shot except to zero. I have a great custom RUM but don't want to shoot it out so I bought the Sendero for a shooter. I was going to put a brake on it because it kicks the snot out of me but I was told that if I put a brake on it it becomes worthless. My questions are 1. does a brake kill the value? 2. if I put a brake on it what brake is the best for this big cannon? Darrel Holland put the brake on my other Rum and while it works well it looks like an ugly wart in the end of the barrel. Any advise would-be appreciated. I've only shot 10 rounds through it so far and the third load shot 4 rounds .314inches @ 100 yards.
