Default kahntrol muzzle brake help with size

So I really like this brake. I have a couple questions if anyone can help. I have a Remington 700 in. 30-06 and this is the style brake I would like to put on it. My barrel is as best I can measure with a tape measure 5/8". However when I'm looking at the brakes I guess my math conversion skills are a little less then par because I have no idea what one to order. My barrel is 22" in length if that info is needed. This brake is $150, does anyone know of where I can find a cheaper one in this style? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

You need a threaded barrel to instal that muzzle brake.

Find a local gunsmith you trust.

This is NOT a job you want to take on as a DIY project!

It will be the best investment you will make!

Trust this old man on this one.

Its a clamp on muzzle brake.....why would I need the barrel threaded? On top of that I threaded my saiga barrel myself, what would be different?

.925", .850" or. 820" are the available sizes. My barrel width is 5/8" measured with a standard measuring tape. Not sure which one would I would need.

A muzzle brake for a .30.06? Using a measuring tape I need to ask Why!! That is similar to putting a fart bomb muffler on a 1989 Honda Civic. Does nothing period! 5/8th is .625. Your barrel seems to be a hunting contour, not a HB rifle. You would be better served using the $$ to buy a 24..26" barrel that is intended to target shoot and skip the Muzzle brake. JMHO

Thanks for your opinion. Unfortunately I cannot afford a new barrel or the gunsmith fees to install it. As far as why I want it is my own reasons, I don't tell other people what to do to "their" guns and I don't need people to tell me what to do to "my" guns. Thank you for help with the mathematical conversion, that's all I was looking for.

My point is you would be better served in saving up and having a true longer range rifle then slapping some useless piece of crap that will in no way improve your rifle and tossing $$ in the dumper. Your correct, You can do with your rifle as you please. Not being able to google the info and tossing hard earned cash on your side tells me you need some direction. If your bolt on brake does not align correctly, it will be very ugly. But it is your rifle. Cheaping out is not worth it. Wish you all the best, JP
