    I'm thinking of putting a brake on my 300 WM and was wondering what other people have or have used. I've looked at a few....

    JP Tactical Compensator Stainless .308 cal .875 barrel

    Holland's Gunsmithing & Shooters Supply

    RAT WORX USA
    BIG CHUBBY Muzzle Brake Available at RAT WORX www.ratworxusa.com - YouTube
    Obviously, I'm not this guy, not that accomplished and he's shooting more of a 308 sized round, so would this one work on a 300 WM?

    Does anyone have any experience with these? My barrel is 0.820 at the muzzle. I'm also interested in what thread/pitch would be best.
    I'm kinda turned off by the "tactical" names on some of them, but that is the style I want, with the side and top discharge, not all the way around and to the front, like the Vais style. I really like the ones that are angled to the rear, like Holland's Radial Baffle and the big ones that they put on the Barrett M107.

    Thanks guys, I'm kinda lost on this :paranoid:

    I have the Holland's brake on my 7mmRM, 300WM, 308Win.. I plan on using it on my 338LM i'm building.
    I think you will like this comp/brake.
    Do you have a smith to install it?
    I now of a great smith in ridgefield.
