I just ordered a Remington 700 AAC-SD (which has the threaded barrel for a silencing device/muzzle brake). I will probably want to purchase a muzzle brake and the only one that I've looked at right now is the "Big Chubby" that costs about $135. Has anyone had any experience with this one or any recommendations for others? Thanks!

I just had a Badger Thruster installed on my Savage 300 WSM, And I cannot imagine a more effective brake. Especially since it only cost $65, and can be turned down to match the profile of your barrel. Also you might look at APA. Both the Fat Bastard and the Little Bastard get very positive reviews.

Old thread but figured I'd chime in.  Have the same rifle ended up going with a Dynacomp Extreme 308.  Battlecomp was another option I was considering and around the price point you are considering for the Big Chubby.
 
Dynacomp was a little more of a pain to index/tune to get the venting right, but pleased with the results.
 
Break is light and effective on reducing muzzle flip.  It is loud, but not as bad as the Miculek break I had on my LR308.

Thanks for the input Marine24.  I have not heard of either of those brakes but will definately look into them.  I am currently leaning toward getting a "Little Bastard" brake from American Precision Arms (I've kinda given up on the Big Chubby do to it's size and that it's a thread and clamp on type).  After talking to APA, they make it sound very scientific to install/tune a brake.  I figured I could thread it on my barrel and the turn it on a lathe according to how many +/- thousands to get the ports to line up to the sides.  APA acted like there was lots more to it than that.  Any input on this from anyone???  I am not a big machinist but initially thought I could handle something like this with a little help from others.  My other option would be to ship my gun to APA and have them do it, but of course that's more $, but I'm willing to do that to get it done right, if need be.  Thanks!

Have you considered a JP muzzle brake? I am pleased with mine and looking at purchasing at least two more.

Just about any muzzle device designed for the AR-10/LR-308 that has the correct thread pattern can be used with your Remington.  Sparky's recommendation on the JP rifles brakes is another good one.
 
Installing a brake can be very easy to a huge pain in the butt.  All relates to how the ports line up, ensuring they are vented up and sideways and not down.  The Dynacomp brake I use comes with a crush washer to help with the installation.

Those Howitzer style brakes like the JP Enterprises are amazing on reducing recoil and muzzle flip.
 
I had one on a 375 Win, which shot like a 22.  It would also blow birthday candles out at  20 yards.
 
Nice fit on the brakes.  One downside to the installation of the Dynamcomp on my Rem 700 is that it is using the crush washer.  Functionally it is excellent, but not as pleasing to the eye

The one on my 300wm make it very nice for a 6yr old to shoot many many times with no flinch or bruis after.

true but if you dip or paint the rifle it will ALL blend nice and look as if it is one piece.


This has a washer and it dura coated.you can see a faint line. This was done before I perfected my skills at installing brakes, still not the best but not the worst ether I just figured how much to take off enough barrel and clock them to the barrel rather than a washer.

I can still see the line but wouldn't have thought you had a washer in there.  I'll get some pics up of my rifle with the Dynacomp set up.  It will be a good picture of what "dog ugly" looks like compared to yours.
