    So with the kidding aside the biggest advantage and the reason I stay with mine is because I can always see if my animal is hit or not.

    I have had muzzle brakes on several rifles. I no longer have those rifles. I don't think I will ever get another one. They do reduce felt recoil substantially, but I think learning to properly deal with recoil is a better way, in the long run. The noise and blast is way more aggravating than recoil ever was for me.

    I think it is a personal preference thing.

    I have the same set up as bigshot and I too take them off during hunting, most of the time. Mine are 243wssm and remington 7mm. The 7mm gets 168 Bergers or for bear this year I will use 177 RWS ID Classic in a Remington 700. The RWS is the most accurate ammo I have ever shot including reloads. There is not a brake on that gun and I seem to get along fine without it but I wont shoot it very many times on paper without giving it a long break. I would want the brake on a new system.

    You can always buy a lead sled from the money you saved by not getting a brake.

    I have one on my 300 ultra. I love it. A few years back I really noticed my hearing going bad so I started to use ear protection. (should have done that from the start but as a kid I thought i was above the advice of the old timers) I use protection no matter what I am shooting so the break was no big deal for me. I love the reduction of recoil.
