I'm considering having my Weatherby .300 barrel ported to reduce recoil. What issues should I be aware of? What can I expect to pay?
................There are other ways to solve recoil problems. On rifles barrels, I`m not a fan of any porting or a fan of any muzzle brakes. For the most part, if I can`t handle a rifle`s recoil as is from the factory, I don`t buy it!
For bench shooting, there are cushy lined shoulder protective shooting vests and strap ons available. There are also better than factory recoil pads from Limbsaver and others which can be used.
When shooting my 375, I have my left elbow on the bench, while the palm of my left hand rests on top of the scope with some downward pressure. It works for me and that technique reduces barrel lift, rifle kickbackon the shoulder, without affecting accuracy.
