Won't need muzzle brake...unless you are recoil sensitive. 140's will puff like a kitten. Especially that you will be around 9 1/2- 10lb all up.I just bought a 280ai Savage High Country. Going to order a muzzle break for it before shooting it.It's a
little heavy 8.2 pounds unloaded no scope..What is foot pounds of this using a 140gr Norma ? Thanks John
