*new* magnetospeed v2 chronographs

A new order of Magnetospeed V2 chronographs have just arrived at 1ShotGear! This unique design of chronographs where the mangetic field senor "bayonet" attaches to the end of your barrel enables shooters to me more precise with their bullet velocities in any conditions. Instead of relying on light the bullet speed is measured by the disturbance of two magnetic fields on the bayonet. This takes all variabilities out from poor light conditions to florecent light problems. Easy to use on any rifle the display unit helps you collect and store your bullet data for you. Check out more through the link below!

Re: *new* magnetospeed v2 chronographs

This is a great idea for a chrono. I built one very similar to this a few years ago. (I am a circuit design engineer by trade.) This barrel mounted design has a significant advantage that wasnít even mentioned, namely it eliminates misalignment of the bullet path to the sensors. With anything other than perfect alignment a conventional chrono will always read slow. To quantify this, a 10 degree misalignment in yaw will result in a reading of about 2,950 fps when the actual velocity is 3,000 fps. A 10 degree error is pretty big and would be visible but it illustrates the point. Other advantages, it eliminates the problem of hitting your chrono and you donít have to have the range go cold to set it up.

Anyway, it was a fun project but I donít use it due to one small limitation that was important to me but may not be to others. When you hang a weight on your barrel it will change the point of impact of the bullet. I was seeing a 10Ē change at 100 yards! That was a complication I didnít want to deal with since I am usually shooting to check not only the velocity but also the accuracy of various loads I am developing. If you just want to check the velocity of ammo that is already developed this is a nice way to go.

Re: *new* magnetospeed v2 chronographs

Just got the V1 Magnetospeed a couple weeks ago. The thing is amazing. I didn't see much of a change shooting with the bayo attached. On two different guns it might have made them shoot about 1/2 MOA low...maybe. These things are totally worth the money. I doubt I'll ever use another chrony.

I borrowed a Magnetospeed v2 for evaluation. At the end I got one too
Easy to set up and follows the muzzle. It is a chrono that is easy to use outside the shooting range.

Here's a video I made using it:

Re: *new* magnetospeed v2 chronographs

What about the effects of a muzzle break? Any feedback. Would like to purchase one but the 338 throws some blast. Thanks.
