Word ?
OPS Tactical/Varmint Muzzle Brake
Maximum Recoil Reduction with Reduced Muzzle Blast
A large expansion chamber followed by a baffle traps and redirects gases to eliminate dust printing, muzzle rise, and back blast... you can watch your shots hit the target. Up to 70% Recoil Reduction. All stainless steel construction... a very effective and comfortable brake. Choose this brake for fast .224-.358 caliber cartridges.

Your opinion or better, if you have used one. Does it live up to the above advertisement?

About the OPS Tactical/Varmint Muzzle Brake should work just fine. I have never used this brake but the one I have on my AR work just fine. The muzzle brakes do a good job with felt recoil and muzzle jump.

I have different types of muzzle brakes or flash suppressors on several types of firearms. I have never seen the OPS Tactical in use or read anything about its effectiveness. EA Brown (EABCO) has sold and fitted the OPS for years. I'm thinking about another T/C Encore barrel in (one of my favorites) .280 Rem. and ask EABCO to fit one or just go w/ a VAIS. You certainly don't need a muzzle brake for a .280, but it would make it more comfortable for a long session.

Yes, it would for a long session. The .280 is that close to the .260 Remington round?

nope, I think the only relationship is that they both seem to excel w/ a 140gr bullet. The .280Rem in Hornady Light mag 140 gr. challenges the 7MM mag. in the same weight bullet. It's also a lot more comfortable to shoot.
My favorite .260 challenger is a 7MM-08. Lot of discussion about the merits of both. I prefer 7MM.
