Bonus points for the Lyman manuals and handloads
I went with this one here, it's really made a difference for me.

To give you an example of how good that brake works. I have a 44 Ruger carbine that I shoot sometimes. I haven't shot it in a few years, so the other day when I went to shoot, I had been used to the 308 which has a pretty much non existant kick. I go to shoot the 44 an when I shot it, I wasn't holding it like I should an almost got scoped
So....Ok I didn't purchase mine with a threaded barrel and would like to put either a brake or a compensator on...what are my options?? and are any of them "GOOD" options...

As far as the threading the barrel, you'll need to talk to a gunsmith or someone who has gunsmithing ability. In the latest ITAR edict, paying someone to thread a barrel may be.................... problematic.
There is a lot of discussion going on about that very subject at the moment. I have a similar problem but much less needed. My 5.56 (which really doesn't NEED a brake) came with a non-threaded barrel. I would like one, but might not be able to now unless I can make friends with someone who has a lathe and the ability to cut straight threads on the end of the barrel.
Thank You, Witt Machine makes a clamp on (reasonably priced) That has excellent reviews And I am gonna try it out.
Interesting. I've seen clamp on flash hiders but not muzzle brakes. Let us know how it performs when you get.
I sure will, Thank you again.
I received my Brake yesterday, and installed it a few minutes ago. I have to say I am really impressed with the quality of the machining, and the fit and finish....Went on like a pair of socks, nice and snug with no tugging or tapping to get it seated. I coated the barrel area it clamps to and the clamping screws with blue loctite (as specified) then I leveled the rifle, leveled the brake and tightened the screws, easy peasy! I really like the fact that it's not HUGE like a lot of the brakes I have seen, it looks like it belongs there instead of looking like a "DIG ME" statement of coolness.... Witt machine claims "Our Muzzle Brakes provide approximately a 60% reduction in recoil and slightly more than that in Muzzle rise reduction. This varies depending on caliber- more effective on larger calibers- The length of the barrel, the overall weight of the firearm and each shooters individual technique."
Now to go shoot it.
It looks better with something to scale it with compared to just the stock photo. Let us know what you think as far as how it performs.
Took it to the range today and Witt is as good as their word....Rifle shoots like a dream, whatever little amount of muzzle rise there is, is more due to my poor skill than it is due to the brake, and a great BIG reduction in recoil! Forgot my camera at home ( ) so no pics though.... So even though the groups were great..I know there is no proof without a pic soo until next time...
Once again thanks to all of you and this forum.
You Guys are GR8!
Photos fixed for you
Hey Downs. Who is CHP that makes the extended mag release?

Sorry but I suck at taking pictures and this phone isn't the best....
With this 'Tanker Style Brake' on her I can KEEP my Sight Picture while working the Bolt and see where the Bullets Hit. The Gun Stays put & doesn't move at all.
People next to you at the Range WILL FEEL the Concussion! This ROCKS...
When I get a better Picture, I'll post it.
I actually went with this...
