I wasn't going to weigh in on this but, I'd feel better about someone who advocates muzzle brakes who could actually spell it. They reduce recoil for sure. I have several. The claims made here are somewhat inflated. It's a personal preference.

Oops.  :-\ :-\  Iím guilty as well. Suppose I just looked at the video and went with it...

I'm with the guys that don't care for them. While anybody can appreciate reduced recoil, to me, the tradeoff is not worth it. The noise is insane and if anybody is standing to your side - poor them - a blast of crap in the face on top of the noise. I'd rather have the recoil. Most any rifle is tolerable on recoil for the one or two shots fired in a short time on a hunt.
Some like cologne, I like the smell of gunpowder.

I catch my brass from my AR's!  The only range mate that concerns most is a "braked" 50BMG rifle. I do advise the range master when I am shooting my non removable brake on my Savage 338 Lapua to keep a few lanes between me and the 22LR shooters for all their crybaby complaints that I can't hear anyway, if possible. LOL!

I'm not a fan of muzzle brakes and have two rifles with them, my .338-378 and .460 Weatherby Magnums, both of which came with them from the factory.  The nice thing is I have the option of taking them off and putting on the thread protector. Yeah the recoil is stout and will quickly get your attention but at least for me it's not unbearable.  Also I don't shoot three or four boxed of bullets at a time which also helps not getting beaten to a pulp.  Maybe when I get older I'll appreciate the brakes more but for now I prefer to go without one and not have to deal with the loud report or subjecting people near me to it. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

  LOL! The older I get, the less recoil is a concern! Late 60s!   ;D
