I can't speak to the results on longer barrels, but the SEI USCG muzzle brake did wonders on my SAI Scout with 18.5" barrel.
I shoot it scoped off the bench, and even with the factory Boyds walnut stock, there is less bounce and jump from the reduced muzzle flip, and less "perceived" recoil overall, due to the stubby SEI USCG brake. Post-shot adjustments on the rifle rest between rounds are less substantial and less annoying. A rubber pad on the buttstock in place of the metal stock base also helps to keep things in place during recoil.
My SEI USCG brake is the shorter version, and it is noticeably more effective than the stock SAI brake that came on that Scout from the factory. I also now have a longer "SEI national match" version of the SEI USCG brake which I just picked up, but I have not had a chance to try it yet on the Scout, for purposes of accuracy and muzzle-rise reduction effectiveness vs the shorter SEI USCG brake I have on there now....I can't wait to shoot the longer NM version out against the stubby variant, next weekend!
