I am trying to decide on which muzzle brake to go with on my build and would love your suggestions!
Here are what I have thought about in no certain order.
Dust kick up in consideration due to prone shooting. Recoil reduction and rise reduction being considered. Annoyance to other shooters not worried about. No crush washers, etc. All Brakes will be timed with threading.

3 way tie so far, 2 of them being my favorite choices. The m11 or JP
Muzzle Brake: Summary of Field Test Results - PrecisionRifleBlog.com
The guy at PRB did a 3 part series evaluating almost all your criteria. This is the summary. You should be able to find the other parts if you wanted to. I'd personally choose the one that functions best, and worry about how it looks second.
I think the APA fat bastard gen 2 looks best. Especially when it's blended in with a heavy barrel.
Never tried it though it's supposed be quite effective at reducing recoil.
One thing about PA brakes. While it's a great brake that will reduce high % of the recoil, because of it's design, you will get gas blow back to you. Depends on the shooter, some feel very uncomfortable.
I would go with a thunderbeast ultra 9. It will greatly reduce recoil and sound. They are expensive, but you won't be sorry.
Desert Tech SRS with TS 308 conversion
TacOps Tac 51 .260 on Surgeon action
This will be my next purchase for my WM.
THUNDERBEAST Ultra 9
JP Recoil Eliminator looks good in those tests. Too bad they didn't test the m11
