I hunt alone, so I don't have
I hunt alone, so I don't have a problem. However, does that happen? I would think if you were close enough to get hearing damage you'd be aware that a shot was about to go off. No?

Sometimes yes and sometimes
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Also the muzzle brake will direct the blast sideways and not just in one direction that if you were off to the side you may get the blast.
I remember the first time that I shot my .340 Weatherby with the brake on. We were in field with grass all around us. Each time that I fired the rifle you could see just where the blast was going. It was quite interesting to watch it.

I know. At the range I hate
I know. At the range I hate it when someone shows up with a big magnum, and a brake.
I shoot nothing but muzzleloaders with real black powder. Very easy on the ears. More of a boom than a crack that hurts the ears like smokeless.

Did you guys have someone
Did you guys have someone local put on the muzzle brake or did you send your gun off to have it installed?

Lol! The first time I shot
The first time I shot my .340 while hunting I learned! My ears rang for days!
I have only forgot ear plugs once since, but was lucky enough to have on a hoodie and use the draw strings!....I try to put the one with a string on my hat, but that time I had removed my hat and had a beanie on!
Mine too is factory

my kleinguenther 300 wby will untie your shoes for you when you shoot it. the muzzle blast is bordering on obnoxious when shooting from a covered bench, but man is it a creampuff to shoot. im having a vais put on my ruger m77 7mag for my wife to shoot at mulies and elk. i had my uncle that lives in hondo go over to ron bartletts and check em out first hand. his impression after test firing was that they were a bit quieter and maybe a touch better recoil wise than the KDF break which is the standard where im from.
