Muzzle brakes

Zak,

What are your opinions of muzzle brakes on rifles such as 308? The gunsmith is going to give me a threadon one that I can remove and put on a thread protector. It will reduce MUZZLE FLIP, he says so I can see my shot hit the paper. That intrigues me. He says it will reduce recoil (always a good thing). No change in accuracy though I might have to rework my reloads a bit. Only downside is it increases noise. Of course I wear ear protection (usually both plugs and headset), as does everyone else at the range.

Opinion?
