muzzle brake port angles

i see all kinds of brakes on the market and was just curious as to what angle should the ports be drill on the brake with just holes and at what diameter.

with all the experience around here, someone must know what's the most effective design and what the angles and holes sizes are.

alot of brakes are added right into the barrel and some are screwed on that are almost invisible to the barrel diameter with just holes, so i was wondering why there are so many that basically look alike but what makes them different ??

hope i asked this correctely ??

    there is the vias type which ar the ones with holes all the way around. Then you have the Holland type with the fish gills. nice thing about these kinds is that they dont kick up as much dust as the vias type. then you got the clam type such as the jp. Very effective brake but they look dorky to some people. as for hole angle on the vias type I dont know which angle is best.

    Re: muzzle brake port angles

    Brakes with holes in them 360 degrees are not as effective as baffle designed brakes. The hole angle means so little in this type of design, hole size and or total volume of disipation is the key to this type being effective at all. If you are looking for a brake that really works get a baffle brake. Most baffle brakes are at least slightly larger than the barrel diameter. The good designs don't have porting on the bottom. Some have top porting some do not. I prefer the ones with no porting on TDC.
