Montana 300 WSM

I recently purchased a Kimber Montana 300 WSM to shoot hogs at fairly long range.
With the number of those long tooth bas###ds we have, I will be shooting a fair amount in each day.
I have been looking at installing a muzzle brake due to the number of shots I will be shooting. (Before everyone spouts off about "too much gun", I have heard that before.) I will not be using the brake during deer hunting, so I would like it to be removable.
Any suggestions.
Also, what loads does you Kimber like?

At long distance you could also wear a shoulder pad. Brakes make for a lot of noise. Time spent putting on a pad or inserting ear plugs.

On a hunting gun brakes also cut down on muzzle rise making a follow up shot (if necessary) quicker. I had the barrels mag-na ported on my elk and moose guns (8mm Rem mag and 338 Win mag) and never really noticed an increase in noise, but then again I never feel any recoil when shooting at game either.

Post a pic of your new rifle when you can.
I don't own a Kimber rifle (I want one) and don't know a lot about them or muzzle brakes for that matter so can't help with that.
What I do know is I like them and the one I want is very expensive.

Most importantly you will NEVER hear me tell anyone "that is to much gun" for any job. The bigger the better in my book! I think a lot of members will agree with me on that subject.

I think shooting hogs would be fun! I bet a .50cal would really blow one up!

Must depend on the brake. My 30-378 will blow out a shoulder or your ears. I'll never shoot it without plugs, and the brake on. My buddy shot it twice, one each both ways without. Ears rang for hours, and his near 300 lbs was thrown back from the resting position out the back of his truck, and he was rubbing his shoulder and said, Wow!

We may have shots at 20-25 hogs in a morning. That's a lot of wear and tear on the shoulder. Ear plugs are cheap.

Ranges will vary from 200-800 yards. They are a nuisance.

My 300 wsm Montana has taken many West Texas hogs at up to 300 yards with ease. I use handloaded 150 Grain Hornady SST behind 70 Gr. Reloder 19 and CCI Large Rifle magnum Primer at 2.83". My Winchester and Kimber both love this round and many hogs have gone to serve the Muslims elsewhere. Good Luck Hunting!!
