I know quite a few guys on here like muzzle brakes... here is a video that illustrates why you need a 'balanced' brake.
Notice that barrel flexing is exacerbated with thinner barrel profiles.

Tap the holes in the top of your brake and plug them with allen pipe plugs. You can remove one at a time till you get the desired effect.
For those who are going to build a custom stock, you can reduce muzzle rise by working the line of the bore as close to the center of the recoil pad as you can get. It will cause a straight line recoil into you shoulder.
