what kind of muzzle brake

i am planning a custom 260 build. I know most of you put brakes on bigger calibers than 260 but i want to be able to see hits through my scope even at 200 yards.
my buddy put one on a 243 and you can watch dogs just explode through his scope which is nice when you are shooting by yourself. i do not have any experience with a muzzle brake at all i have only shot one gun with a muzzle brake. ( the 243). However i do know that the guys on here seem to have a lot of experience so i am asking for some help. My 260 should weigh about 9-11 lbs when finished. also just as a kicker i think i want a 26"+ barrel length but i was told 22" is all you need. not really sure about that.
i will try to shoot paper out to 1000 yards.

thanks guys

    It might be an idea for you to contact Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge, his brakes are awsome, and he also shoots a 260.

    I have a 260 in the works right know and I am haveing it breaked for the same reasons you are. I am using Kirby Allens break.

    But there are about 10 diffrent riflesmiths on here who all offer a break and they are all good. If I were you I would look at my time line and see how long I am willing to be with out my rifle as some of these guys have quite a long waitng list.
