What diameter is your barrel at the muzzle? Looking for a self timing brake or one that has to be timed in a lathe?

Yep.....what ‘Wedgy’ said.
Also, might wanna check out the PVA ‘Jetblast’ series. I have one on a 6.5 “You-Know-What” and it does great! 😉

Just another brake question. I have some brakes with top smaller ports. even one with threads so you can install allen screws to block all three little ports or just one making it adjustable.

What is the consensus on top ports, none of the rifles have small diameter barrels to induce whip? Are they good or bad?

Based on some slow motion video I saw, brakes with top holes can definitely bend even heavy barrels and might even adversely affect bedding. However, I've got a few of Kirby Allen PK (PainKiller) brakes that have 3 holes on top. All of my rifles shoot very well with them. "If" my barrels are bending or whiping downward it hasn't presented any negative effects that I've detected.

APA's gen 3 MBs (https://www.americanprecisionarms.com/collections/gen-3-muzzle-brakes) is similar to what you are describing. IMHO, if you have the ability to tune muzzle rise/fall, it is a good idea.
