Default question on muzzle brakes

I know how they work. But what I want to know. if I mill the end of my barrel to make a "muzzle brake" well it miss up acc of the rifle .all I am trying to do is get the muzzle jump down to a min on my step son's 243.

Just for fun of it if it can be done I am going to.do it to much 22lr as well

I would not do it directly to the barrel.
Look at getting an aftermarket that screws on.

Will it mess up the accuracy of your rifle? I can give you an absolute, positive maybe.

Depends on how the ports are cut into the bbl, and the effects on barrel harmonics you create. How are you planning to make the cuts? Drill press, end mill, EDC machine? Brace and bit?

Don't know if I'm saying this right but it would be on a milling drill press. Was looking around and a 3 slots on each side looks clean and simple to do.

The gun Smith that I go to is a good friend and well let do just about anything unless he feels it is unsafe.

Well if you're going to do this yourself I would recommend knowing what tools you are actually using first of all. Second how do you plan to fixture this barrel? Deburr the inside of said slot? IMO do yourself a favor and pay a professional to do it correctly or leave it alone.
