Howdy: I need some advice and/or recommendations from you fellas who have experience with the use of muzzle brakes. I came into a midweight 'glass stocked rifle chambered in .300 Weatherby. I haven't been around muzzle brakes very much but I have an idea this rifle may be a candidate for something to reduce the recoil. I've done a bit of research on the internet and I understand the noise to the shooter is an issue. I'm asking from those who have a brake what is your observations as far as recoil reduction and the increase in muzzle blast. Any recommendations for a particular brake would be excellent. Finally, if you were to do it over again would you go the brake route or leave the barrel as is? Thanks guys.
