Muzzle brakes (MB) only affect the gun after the bullet has exited the barrel.

WHile this is true, there is also compressed air that gets pushed ahead of the bullet that vents out the brake as well but more importantly, there is less overall motion to the gun when the MB is installed and what motion is there comes straight back instead of causing the muzzle to rise thereby avoiding the magnum effect.
All the rifles that I have fired past 1000 yards (which are a few more than a few) have exhibited much fewer vertical flyers if they had a muzzlebrake.
This is just my experience based on my own intrepretations of the shooting game.
After the Moag rest was built, it harnesed the Moag so much better by sheer weight counteraction that the vertical stringing was drastically reduced similiarly to what adding a MB would have done because it limited the amount of movement before and after the bullet left the barrel.
If it's not far, it's boring.
