This vid is from 2-3yrs ago, of me shooting my 300wm in slow motion.

I was testing heavy bullets and looking for speed. Got the speed I wanted and more from Retumbo.

A few guys commented at the time about the recoil, a few suggested a muzzle brake.

Fast forward a few yrs, I finally am getting around to installing a brake on this rifle. I will be installing the brake tomorrow when I get my rifle back from local shop.(Anyone interested in having their rifle muzzles threaded and are in C. Fl area, send me an PM and I will give #).

I am having the muzzle done with 5/8-24 threads. Brake will be a Surefire Pro Comp.

This is to make it easier to keep on target when shooting long distance. I intend to try this rifle at 1 mile(1760yds) on a steel target.

Will try to get a vid showing difference in recoil with same load.

Here is promised vid of rifle with muzzle brake installed.

Another slow motion vid. This was shot from bench, so the apparent recoil is more pronounced, but in actuality, I could probably shoot this all day long.

Vid also shows the disturbance around the shooter caused by a muzzle brake, pay attn to the paper and bottle of Off on bench top.

I took this shot kinda unprepared because the other shooters on range wanted to go cold, but I wanted to get the shot done, so was kind of rushed.

215grain bullet going 2940fps. I would say the brake reduced the recoil pulse by maybe 50%.

Btw, rifle did not like this bullet at all, shoots the 208 grainers much better.
