Basically, the large ported brakes reduce recoil the best. Some claim 50%or more.
The brakes with round holes and chambers are in the middle.
And the ones with a straight bore and round holes are the least effective.
The total difference is from 30% (The least) to 50%+ (max) so depending on the caliber
and bullet weight they are all effective.
If you want to tame a 308 any break will work, But if you have a beast you may want to
consider one of the ported breaks.
PS: Flash hiders offer very little reduction in recoil.
So a lot of the selection depends on likes and dislikes and installation.(Some breaks have to
be timed driving the cost up.
I would recomend one best if there was one, but there are 5 or 6 made by sponsors on this
web site that are excellent.
