    Yes, the angled ports do help in muzzle climb and/or recoil but I'm cautious of them. I use the JP Enterprises Recoil Eliminator on large calibers but those with side ports that are angled back just kill my sinuses. They blast toward the shooter and I feel that there are better ways to do this.

      The brake is on my smith m&p performance center AR. It has no recoil to me. It’s scary how fast and well I can shoot it with not much practice. I’m old fashioned I think close in work is done with a pistol lol. Anyways not a fan of brakes. But the one I do have works like a champ. You can’t hold the gun for someone else to help them shoot it like my grandsons. It beats me to death when they shoot it. But I’ll put up with for them.

        Milldawg... I surely understand your perspective. I didn't like and rarely used muzzle brakes until I started long range prairie dog shooting. We found that when we started shooting precision rifles/optics capable of predictable shots in the 500-1000 yard range, we needed spotters to see where we hit or whether we even hit the p-dog. The problem was always finding someone to dedicate a few days to doing nothing but spotting our shots... no one wanted to do that.

        Unlike a 3-9x hunting scope , the high magnification scopes (i.e. 24-60x)carry a very narrow field of view and they come off the target with even a mild mannered .223. I use my .223 AR out to 850 yards and I don't think I've ever seen a bullet hit at that range without a muzzle brake. Partly because they are so far, I can't see the bullet hit without watching through a high magnification optic and partly because the scope moved enough so that I totally lost the target p-dog in my scope. All my muzzle brakes hold the muzzle solid and I can keep the scope right on each small target until I distinctly see the bullet hit. I don't need a spotter with this setup. For closer range hunting and plinking, I can screw the brake off to minimize the noise for other people in the area.
