Let me know how you like that

Let me know how you like that Vais when you get it put on. I've been doing a lot of reading on different breaks, but of course everyone claims there's is the best!

Unbelievable, I got my rifle

Unbelievable, I got my rifle back in a week! The new Vias break looks good. I need to blend the break to the barrel a little more for my standards of finish, nothing I can't handle. Other than that it looks good. We will see if this break turns this lion into a lamb. I've shot this rifle for 21 years and its going on its third reformation from a synthetic skeletal stock ruger m77 all weather. Its since had a boyds laminate stock replacment, fitted with a limbsaver, and was shot like that for the last few years. A few years before moving to colorado I sent the rifle to kdf in seguin tx for a bedding job and trigger work. now that my wife is showing an interest in western hunting I had the vais break installed and will hand her the reins as I'm taking over my late grandfathers kleinguenther titan II 300 wby. Idk....just might shoot it for mulies this year, she may have to wait until next year before I hand over the keys to this ride.

Makes the rifle look mean!

Makes the rifle look mean! Let me know how she shoots. I'm hoping to get my rifle in the next month or so. Muzzle break will be the first thing I add to it!

Have the trigger worked over

Have the trigger worked over whike your smith is instaing your break. The trigger work I had done on my rifle was its greatest upgrade to its accuracy. Its also usually a pretty cheap upgrade as well. I think kdf charged me 40 dollars to work my factory ruger trigger...it went from 7 pounds of crap to a three pound piece of glass, very crisp.

I'm looking at the Remington

I'm looking at the Remington Model 700 with comes with the X-Mark Pro trigger. Supposedly you're able to adjust the trigger without taking it to a gunsmith. We'll have to see how it works once it comes in.

 I have a 700SPS Varmint with the X-Mark Pro trigger and yes you can adjust it yourself with an allen key, but mine would'nt go below 4 LBS so it got switched out pretty quick.

 As for muzzle brakes they have their place and i have had 1 brake on a gun and while i did notice a difference in recoil the noise factor was overwhelming so i decided to put up with the recoil over the noise. I had mine custom made with a threaded sleeve so i could take it off and put the sleeve on to protect the threads on the barrel

That's what I always thought too. But Brownells has a clamp on version

Some are permanently affixed and some are removable it all depends.  I have both, a permanent one on one of my T/C barrels and a removable one on my .340 Weatherby.

That clamp on one looks interesting.
