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?
I have the Magnetospeed V2. Although I don't use a muzzle brake, the instructions clearly cover how to set up the chrony if your rifle does have one. It's simply a matter of arranging the muzzle position far enough ahead of the V- block and into the blast zone so your blast clears the mounting mechanics.
I like my Magnetospeed very much. Best and easiest to use I've ever had experience with. The only issue I've had with it is that the tension strap that holds the V-block in place at the muzzle is a bit troublesome and sometimes, especially with more powerful rifles, the V-block slips forward and becomes a nuisance. The V-block at the muzzle is held in place with a narrow belt. This tensioning belt is, IMO, awkward to use and getting it tight enough during initial installation so that the mechanism used to take up the final slack secures it sufficiently in the final set up stage doesn't always produce satisfying results.
I have a great woman, fantastic kids, a warm place to sleep and an accurate rifle. Life is good ..............
