Default Muzzle Break for .300 win mag

I have a Ruger M77 skeleton synthetic stock and stock stainless barrel. I am wanting to put a muzzle break on it help with the recoil, I've gone to a couple different gunsmiths and one has talked about porting the end of the barrel and building a muzzle break into it, and the other is talking about threading the end of the barrel and adding a muzzle break. I would like some input on advantages or disadvantages of one over the other. Thanks Mike

Have it threaded. You will probably want to remove the brake for hunting or if you don't have the range to yourself. Most guides won't let you hunt with a ported barrel.

muzzle brakes are loud. i have seen rifles that had the barrel ported. if done correctly they work. but if the guy drilling the ports doesn't know what he's doing, it could end up damaging the barrel or even affecting accuracy. down side as mentioned, it's always going to be louder than it originally was.

threaded muzzle brakes work too. but again, better make sure the guy doing the work knows his business, or it too can cause problems as well. it has to be concentric to the bore exactly perfect to work correctly. plus side to a threaded brake, is you can remove it and put a thread protector on if needed.

The Savage Hog Hunter with Heavy Barrel comes that way. I put the Witt directly on the Savage and just screwed it down tight. It did come with a special o-ring going toward the barrel but it copletely changed the recoil on it ..didn't seem to much louder and did not change POI at all...

Your brake must have side ports that direct the gas and noise to the sides. At the range, everyone beside you will be giving you the finger.

I know...They all loved it when I shot the .308 with Muzzle then the .338 Lapua with muzzle and then topped the day off with the 460S&W XVR with compensator.....

I run this on my .300 WM 1000 yd. target rifle and it works extremely good.

Tremendous decrease in hop and felt recoil.

I use VAIS brakes on the .300 Mags. The VAIS claims to reduce recoil about 50%. You take a hard kicker like the Ruger 300 Mag, install a VAIS brake on it and it'll drop the bite down to about that of a .308.

I have not had one complaint about it. I have had many calls praising them.

You can get them from Midway USA. Its well worth the money.
