I have been using electronic hearing protection for quite a few years. I have owned a few cheapie models tagged with Champion or Winchester labels, up to a mid-range set marketed by Dillon Precision. All of them perform adequately. Obviously, the Dillon model was better (was, because they were a fire casualty a few years ago) but not six times better as the price would indicate.
My problem is that none of them work very well for rifle shooting. The size, shape, or both prevent a good cheek weld. That leaves me with passive earplugs as the only option. Noise reduction runs from less than twenty to middle-upper twenties. That will save me from immediate deafness, but prevents comfortable conversation on the line, and only offers a minimal level of protection from the .338.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
