New chronograph suggestions

Was shooting today with the old chronograph working up a new load, the wind and light were giving that old pact fits. The sad realization that my old pact has given me many a good day, but its the chronograph equivalent of a 1971 Silverado, goodie in its day but........

So, what's worth looking at, is there a price point that's worth saving for?

I'd like something with skyscreens that don't catch wind like the pact, and maybe one that does a little better on the weird sunlight days.

The old thing works so good, but there has to be some better technology out there.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Magnetospeed or this.

When you saw it at the shot show did you happen to ask them or find out if it will work downrange. For example set it at 850 yards and shoot past it.

Re: New chronograph suggestions

Magneto speed looks like a neat idea, couple of questions for the guys who have them.

I have a couple oddball rifles, a few short barreled mags, and a radially ported bake. Both have massive amounts of muzzle blast, how does that effect the stability and reliability of the chronograph.

I like to shoot at various yardages to reverse extrapolate bc, I'm assuming there is no way to do this with the magneto speed.

On the radar, what was the projected price?

Re: New chronograph suggestions

We were impressed with the Lab at SHOT and will be selling them, too.

Anxious to try one out.
