Magnetospeed

I come home yesterday to a box full of goodies from my good buddy Brian over at Shoot-Long | Long Range Rifles, Long Range Shooting and the most exciting part was this!


It looks like its going to be a nice little addition to the family. there were also a bunch of bullets, solvent, a custom gun case etc.. I will post results once I get around to trying the new Chronograph out.

Re: Magnetospeed

I hope you like it as much as I do mine Mike. I just used it this morning on a 6.5 x 284 I was dialing in. At 700 yards I was hitting the 3/4 moa target. I removed the MS and still was on. I could not tell the difference. This barrel is braked and is .700 at the muzzle. I am sure some light tubed rifles would be effected, but none of my long range rigs have been. Sure is nice to toss that small box in the back seat when going to shoot. Then have the ability to be checking velocities in just a minute or two. Not to mention the reading not being effected by light angles.

Good luck and enjoy.

Jeff

the fact that light angles doesnt affect it is what sold me. I dont mind the set up of my other chrono's but this one will for sure be nice in ease of use. I look forward to comparing it to my other chronos to see how the numbers jive

Re: Magnetospeed

Mike, Jeff,

Have either of you experienced a 'lean in' condition when the MagnetoSpeed is mounted on the barrel? If so, how did you adjust the MS to get the sensor deck parallel to the bore line?

I tried to shim with some card stock (file folder) and succeeded in getting everything parallel. Unfortunately, the loss of V-block surface contact friction means re-setting up after each shot.

Never had a problem. I just use the alignment bar to adjust to the bottom of bore, (or close) and go. Mine has worked very well.

Re: Magnetospeed

I keep a piece of paper with the instructions for notes of what stacks of spacers are used with each rifle. Makes for even faster set up.
