muzzle brakes

I am looking into putting a muzzle brake on my new Encore 300 win mag. (it knocked my girlfriend pretty bad the other day) and was looking for some opinions. I have narrowed it down to these three from Brownells:
1: Vais
2: Ops-R3E26 (supplied to military special ops)
3: QUE adjustable brake (like Browning BOSS)

I like the reduced noise and concussion of the vias and OPS, but i have always liked to be able to dial in my hunting load.

Have any of you had any experience with any of these and which would you go with.
Thanks, so far this forum has been great and very helpful, i am hooked.

    I have experience with the Vais and the Que. Both are good. The load tuning capability of the Que Industries is very easy to use and the unit is very easy to install. However, as you maybe know, most shooters who reload would consider the tuning feature to be unnecessary since you can tune the load with powder quantity and seating depth changes.

    I have had good luck with Kevin Knights slimline brakes. He custom fits them and will make about anything to fit your needs.

    Just put an Ops Inc on my Sendero 300 WM. I'm very impressed with it. Recoil is the same or slightly less than my Rem 308 VS shooting 168's. I took both to the range last weekend and I didn't notice a big jump in noise as the shooter. I did notice an increase in noise when I had my Dad shoot it and I stood to the side. In fact I felt the blast too.

    The brake works great though and I was pleasantly surprised that there wasn't much extra noise to the shooter.

    Give Answer Products a call. They make a very nice brake.
