Muzzle Brakes

Dear Gentlemen: I recently purchased a 338 RUM LSS and am thinking of putting a muzzle brake on it for practice purposes (the recoil is not terrible but is sufficiently distracting if firing more than 10 rounds or so). I would appreciate any info as to the names of what this group considers the best muzzle brakes for this type of caliber.
Regards,
Rudy

find the post by 308nate. he has a video post of the different ones that he makes. as we speak he has my hunting rifle and installing a break to it. all of the ones that ive seen done by him are unbeleivable you cant even see the seam where they screw on. he is also building me a thread protector. if you are looking for a titanium to save weigh he has those too. you wont be disipointed. pm if you want his info...

I have one of 308nate's brakes, but don't have my barrel threaded yet. I will say it looks very nice, I think I will be happy with it.

My 30-378 Weatherby Accumark came with a factory installed Accubrake. I would never change it out, but am looking to replace my flash suppresor with a muzzzle brake on my AR. Guess I'l have to contact 308Nate.
