Re: Rifle Chronographs

thanks for the POI info. I always cold bore zero. My 300wsw hits a postage stamp at 200yds. I will have to see what the 270 will bring. I first have to learn the trigger pull on the 270. My 300 is set for 3lbs while the 270 is 5.3lbs big difference.

Re: Rifle Chronographs

Will the magnetospeed chronograph work with bullets of non-megnetic metals such as the copper Barnes types?

Yes, i've used it with both the Cutting Edge Bullets out of my 6.5 WSM & Barnes out of a 300Win, both worked just fine. I did not have to use a different setting but they are there just in case.

Here's the one i have:

The World

I particularly like its compact size and the fact that i can set it up near the target without fear of false readings. Thereby i can confirm bullet speeds out to extended ranges and compare against ballistic calculators.

Here's a U-tube of it in use:

Is there a place to look at this thing in American speak and dollars?
