The best tip for getting them indexed correctly is to use a smith that knows what he's doing, and cares about his work.

This was discussed recently in a thread and the general concensus is that it won't hurt anything if it's off slightly, and it will still work. To me, if it was not done right, I'd question the smith's work on anything else and his concern for the quality of his work and what he sends out the door to his customers.

If it was me, I'd use a baffle style brake. I believe they provide the best possible recoil reduction. Beware of any brake that has holes all the way around as it will really become apparent why you don't want this the first time you shoot it prone in the dirt. It will really kick up a dust cloud.;)

ss7mm,
I'm a machinist by trade and have a hobby lathe in my shed but don't do it full time anymore. The smith who is building the gun wants $320 for one fitted. I can get one through defensive edge for $89 delivered, so saving $230 is more to spend on a scope. Just chasing any tips to line it up from guys that do it all the time. Ihave an idea of how I'd do it but wanted to see if there was an easier/better way.

$320 for a fitted brake ?? what the hell does he charge to buleprint and action?

I use Nathan Dagley's V-port brakes and highly recommend them , they work great are installed properly and perfectly and have a very destinctive desgine , all for about half what your smith charges.

here is Nate's site Welcome To My Website
