Having a light-ish 300 win mag built and it will have a gill style brake. What are ya'll using for hearing protection when hunting? Will use plugs and muffs when practicing, but not sure I want to use muffs.....if I'm hunting in warm/hot weather.

I wear Electronic muffs at the long range match every year. They suck and it is hotter than hell but they work. If hunting I just put the suppressor on it.

I like the surefires with the flange/valve thing.

If youíre hunting, why not a cheap set of muffs? Iíve killed a few deer with a muzzle brake, and always put on muffs. Target deer comes out: grab muffs.

Agree on the surefire. Cheap, effective and fit well.

These. They are cheap and they work. You can find them on sale for $49. I have a 300WM with a brake and itís what I use.

Amen. I'm on my second pair- the first pair I wore so much the earpads wore out. I never shoot anything except a pellet gun anymore without ear protection- even suppressed..

IIíve ignored my ears and now have hearing aids, Iím careful about not losing more of it. I now wear both foam plugs and over priced muffs.

Muffs or foam plugs only when shooting at the range. Part of the joy in hunting, at least for me, is hearing all the sounds that go with being in the woods far away from the city.

I do sometimes enjoy passing the time while sitting in the stand listening to the radio using a single ear bud with the volume turned down low.

I have the non-bluetooth version of THIS. They offer excellent protection, decent sound quality and are quite comfortable in the heat.

I just started using the MSA Sordin Supreme Pro X Electronic Earmuffs. These have the gel cup seals, very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

Same here. If it doesn't take a suppressor, it doesn't come out of the safe.
I keep a set of electronic ear muffs in my backpack at all times just in case I am around others who shoot unsuppressed. I know I have a set Walker's Game Ears and I forget what the other pair is, probably Walker's as well. The second one has bluetooth.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

Suppressor probably isn't in the cards for this rifle, don't need an extra 7-8" hanging off a 25" barrel. Looks like a good set of plugs is enough for hunting and will use plugs and muffs when practicing. Thanks fellas!

+1 for these electronic muffs. I've had a pair for about 8 years now and I really like them. I use them paired with ear plugs at the range and wear just the muffs while I'm out hunting.
