cache busting via params


cache busting via params  using -'javascript,html,css,caching'

We want to cache bust on production deploys, but not waste a bunch of time off the bat figuring out a system for doing so.  My thought was to apply a param to the end of css and js files with the current version number:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="base_url.com/file.css?v=1.123"/>


Two questions:  Will this effectively break the cache?  Will the param cause the browser to then never cache the response from that url since the param indicates that this is dynamic content?
