    No way I would hunt with any magnum without a B.O.S.S.....makes you a much better shooter.

    That would kinda limit your rifle choices to Browning and Winchester!!

    If you want to go faster and heavier, you should be shooting a .338.

    This is a good point, and why I feel the 300 win with a 215 works so well for me. I can, and do, take elk to 1000 probably farther and have taken antelope to close to 1300 yards. If I plan to go much farther than that it is time to get out the 338.

    All my magnums will be braked. The added accuracy and being able to spot my own hits is a critical element in long range shooting or hunting. I would never give that up and go back to a non-braked rifle again.

    What is any better action than a model 70? Even Dakota uses a similar type of the'70. I am talking about the classic action.

    Looking at your responces I think you need at LEAST a 300RUM! an Allen or a Lazzeroni may be more what your looking for.
    You can push the 215's up to 3300fps with the RUM (i have done it lol) that is a lot of power. I feel unless your going to be shooting over 1400 yards that the RUM is about the best combo for big game. over 1400 the .338 in the bigger mags takes over.

    Have a gunsmith thread the barrel and install a VIAS brake then you can take it of and have a thread cap and the vias while taking away a good amount of recoil also isn't as loud as some others.

    Although I can't/won't recommend the VIAS to anyone. The threaded brake is most definitely the way to go. Magna-Porting is ok but I don't believe that style is efficient as the larger screw on styles. Plus you can't take it off to clean your rifle, you end up with bunch of crap to clean out of the brake then...:rolleyes: PITA.

    The PainKiller & Muscle Brake are made by our sponsors (as well as others I can't think of). Start with those guys, they make their living AND their reputation on their products. They won't give you the run-around.

    CenterShot Rifles--
    Allen Precision--
    JE Custom--
    DeadlyPrecision--

    etc.

    If it is not screwed to the barrel it is actually magnaporting and I would not recommend that.

    Go with a JP like this. I use them all the time.

    JP - Compensators - Bennie Cooley Signature Series

    A good smith will contour it to your barrel and you will never know it is not part of the tube.

    Great recoil reduction adding accuracy and allowing you to spot your own shots. Side discharge so it does not blow crap all over you and fill your scope with dirt when shooting prone. Open design that allows cleaning of the muzzle and crown without removing the brake. Top ports to reduce muzzle jump.

    Just realize some of the chamberings you are choosing will have a relatively short barrel life. The RUM will be going south about 700 rounds and groups will be unacceptable by 1000 rounds in most cases. Several of us have been there. Great velocity, but at a price. As much as I shoot I would have to rebarrel about once every 12 to 18 months.

    Dragman, we kinda know each other so I have to ask. Why that rude Vias brake? They are the worst brakes I ever crawled behind in my opinion. By the way the 300 win I bought from you was a tac driver well past 1000 yards with 210 Bergers. But I replaced that nasty dirt tossing radial brake.:D

    Thanks
