Default Muzzle brake recommendation

I have a shultz and larson bull barrel 308 that I'm thinking about putting a brake on.
None of my rifles have brakes. Never needed one for hunting no matter what caliber.
But the shultz and larson will be a bench gun and I plan on chucking alot of rounds at a time. 308 isn't a hard recoil caliber but I thought I'd enjoy it even more with it muzzled.
I'm looking for some advice on brakes and what we have here in country that works well for a responsible price. My past experiences importing gun parts just plain sucked.
Thanks 360hunt

I'm in Victoria and have a very well respected gunsmith that lives on my street. He's semi retired now but will inquire about his services once a find a brake.

I just checked some videos on the heathen.
That's exactly what I'm after.
Thanks
