i was wondering if adding a muzzle brake to a tikka t3 300wsm would be a good idea to help out with recoil, or does it hurt velocity to much to not be worth it?

The effect on ballistics should not be a worry...

% of help in recoil reduction from a flash supressor while there is much less of a contribution than a muzzle brake. Did you mean a brake?

I put a brake on my T3 Lite 300WM, it worked great (except for people or objects off to the side.)  Be sure to take hearing protection when you shoot, it is deafening. Literally.

A good brake will drop perceived recoil by 50% or more.

RC is right. The effect on your ears will be much more noticable than effect on ballistics. Shot with a buddy who has an a-bolt with a boss on it. It's loud with my earplugs in.

  Have a friend who HAD a M70 SS Classic w/BOSS.  Forgot to put his ear protection back on once when at the range.  Only once though.   Whacko

I have a vias muzzle brake and a recoil reduction pad on my rem 700 300 wm.  Its somewhere around 70% reduction in recoil.  If the barrel did not heat up, I could shoot it non stop for hours and never get a sore shoulder.  That being said, the people around you at the range are going to hate you.  You can't hear them complain if you leave your hearing protection on.Big Smile  Thats what I do.

I have a VIAS too, they clean out the sinuses nicely.

I would recommend a brake with ports only on the sides, not top and bottom.  This prevents debris in the optics and minimizes dust storms while shooting in the prone.

+2. I have a J P howitzer on a 300Win mag and my 12yr old son can shoot it all day long with nothing hurting after. it is LOUD but works great. I just got one from another site don't know the name of it but going to give it a try. the right brake will work good.

If you have a real military need for a muzzle brake, then double up with plugs and muffs.

Bigdaddy0381,
 
The guys I know who hunt with a rifle all use electronic muffs.  Not only do they reduce the blast, they definately increase the sounds of the woods.  Win.  Win.
 
I can fire my .375 all day long because it has a very good brake and a good kickpad.

 pyro6999,
 
I am very happyy for you.  What does your rifle weigh?  What kind of recoil reduction system to you have?   What load?
 
One day my son-in-law and I went to the range for a couple hours of shooting.  We both fired thirty rounds.  The averaged velocity for .375 was 2,950 feet per second with 270 grainers.  He fired a 7mm Mag with 140 grainers at 3,200.
 
At the end of the day he had a severe bruise with litterally a blood blister in the middle of the bruise.  My shoulder wasn't even read.
