I put the hollands brake on a 7RUM and it took recoil down to that of a .243.
I would not hesitate buying one of these again

Well you would be wrong. The ports that angle up are very effective at reducing muzzle flip and the ports are not angled 70 degrees forward, they have a forward angle of only 7 degrees.

I can see my impacts from 100yds on out with it.

It's not as effective at reducing felt recoil as some on the market but it does a good job on muzzle flip and is very easy on the ears/blast because the blast and sound are directed away from the shooter and slightly forward.

Because it's a side discharge you also have no problems with dust blinding and there are no issues with the muzzle flash when shooting in low light.
