    If it was me, I would run to check to see if my picnic basket was also missing! 😁

    all styles of porting aren't equal .... the only style that we have found to work for us is done by Mag-na-port .... their process most certainly makes a difference in barrel jump and offers a secondary reduction of felt recoil .... what it doesn't do is redirect a portion of the muzzle blast back into the face of the shooter .... it will increase the sound from the muzzle blast to the side, example when firing from a bench there will be an increase directed at shooting stations on each side .... once again, not back at the person pulling the trigger .... in our collection we have a Ruger Redhawk 44 mag, a Remington 700 BDL chambered in 300 WBY Mag, and a Remington stainless 30-06 that have been Mag-na-ported .... the recoil from a 300 WBY cartridge is brutal and the muzzle jump is considerable .... since having ours Mag-na-ported, when shooting from sandbags, you can take your hand off of the fore-end and the barrel will not jump off of the bag .... I have seen the bullet impact on each of the last 3 deer that I've taken with that rifle .... we will be ordering a 45-70 within the next few months .... if, after firing it, we believe that muzzle jump is an issue, we will not hesitate to have it Mag-na-ported .... dealing with felt recoil is a different matter .... while Mag-na-porting does help, we have found that done in combination with having mercury recoil suppressor and a Kick-eez Modified Trap Recoil Pad professionally installed does wonders .... just to make it clear, our only connection to any of these product is that of a customer who has put them to extensive use, over time, and found them to work

    I prefer an unported bbl, but what works well for me may not work well for others.
