    I shot at the OKC gun club rifle bay once that has the concrete benches. The top skin is sheet metal and they sprayed insulation underneath. Above each bench there is no insulation in a circle. I was told that was because of brakes jetting the gas upwards and blowing it out. Some jet the gas sideways and some up evidently although I've never seen one that jets the gas up other than small ports to mitigate muzzle rise.

    Brakes are very effective in what they are designed for, but detrimental to maintaining normal hearing.

    I picked up my first 300WM a few months ago and will be deer hunting with it this season some.
    The recoil is definitely there but gotta have plenty of knockdown for these mammoth SE OK whitetail. Lol
    I’ve never shot a 6.5 Creedmore but I’m diggin’ the 300.

    I like the 300 the recoil never bothered me other than sighting in

    Man, those are 2 totally different rounds. If you are deer hunting in Oklahoma the 6.5 should work just about anywhere. There are places out West if your willing to shoot a long distance you may prefer the larger 300.
