Good Side Port Brake for .670 Barrel?

My barrel is .670 at the muzzle and was wondering what a good side port brake for that would be. Would like it to match the contour. Any ideas? Thanks

Holland offers some good options for the smaller contours.

Muscle Brake and the CSR brake from center shot rifles

Anything less than overkill is underachievement!

.670 diameter does not leave much room for ports, the bigger the braking surface the more effective the brake is. If your rifle is a larger caliber you might want to give a little on looks and get one that workd really well. Here's a picture of a brake If I remember right the barrel was about .650
