Strap. Connect. Shoot. The MagnetoSpeed Ballistic Chronograph is extremely simple to use and is not affected by light related problems so common with traditional chronographs (low sun, bright sun, etc.). The MagnetoSpeed Chronograph attaches to the barrel of your gun eliminating the tripod, long wires and large readout boxes of traditional chronographs. It also means there is no need to go down range for any reason. 

When we began selling MagnetoSpeed's V1 and V2 models in 2013 we knew they would be extremely popular, but we were consistently surprised to find that each time we placed an order for new inventory we wished we had ordered twice as much. We simply could not keep them in stock. That is because the MagnetoSpeed Chronograph really is the "better moustrap". Take some time to read all the positive reviews of the V1 and V2 models on their respective pages to understand why guys like them so much. 

The V3 is the new and improved version of the popular V2. The V1 and V2 are no longer being manufactured. The V3 has all the capabilities of the original V2 model, plus a few new ones. V3 fits barrels from ½" up to 2" O.D. to accommodate extra-large bull barrels, with clearance for a muzzle brake up to 3" O.D. Shot information displayed includes minimum and maximum velocity, average velocity, standard deviation, extreme spread, shot number, and string number. Data is stored on an included SD card making it extremely easy to download to your computer. 

The V3 MagnetoSpeed now has: 

● Improved Display 

○ A three-button menu system (replaces old toggle switch) 

○ Battery options are; (1) 9-Volt or (2) CR123s (replaces 4 AAA batteries) 

○ Easy access battery compartment, no need for screwdriver to swap batteries 

○ Improved shooting modes, with the ability to now operate with air guns 

○ Downloadable firmware updates 

○ Advanced data logging and troubleshooting capabilities 

○ More compact and rugged display housing 

○ Rapid-fire mode with rate-of-fire 

 

● Re-designed Bayonet 

○ Ruggedized strapping system; with metal buckle and triad thumb nut 

○ Same proven MagnetoSpeed technology, but with updated sensor design 

○ Sleek new profile and color scheme 

○ New strap bracket to allow for future alternative attachment options 

○ Added dual/redundant data connection points

Love it. Does everything as advertised.

A+ for function. No need for sun, lights or screens...will work in the dark. Serves all of my chrony needs except one: being attached to the barrel you can't use the shot for accurate sight in as results will be different when it is off the barrel. Also the barrel tie down system leaves a little to be desired. The unit slides forward a little with each shot even when it is tightened very tight {may need a softer/stickier rubber on the spacer to resolve the problem} Apart from these minor issues I am satisfied with it to the extent that I have given all of my other chronies to my cronies. I use this product daily and am totally satisfied with it function and ease of use!

I have an Ohler 35 which is an excellent chronograph. I purchased the V3 because of reports I have read. I was looking for ease of operations at different shooting ranges. I was not disappointed. It gave me them same readings as the Ohler. Actually they were 2 to 4 fps higher and I attribute that to the fact the sky screens of the Ohler are 10 feet further from the muzzle. Good purchase and LRH are good people to work with!h

I received mine in August and have used it twice at a public range where I do most of my shooting. With my old Shooting Chrony I'd have to wait for a target change to adjust it when it would invariably move or lose a skyscreen. With this, I can install and remove it in seconds. It's failed to read a shot only once and that was because it had loosened from the barrel after about the 12th shot. I should have checked that after each shot.

It's consistently reading the same velocities that my Chrony reported. The interface is very easy to understand. Well worth the money even with the little use it will see.

Received my Magneto Speed V3 in quickly from LRH in ready go to condition. Read the instructions, selected to correct spacers using the enclosed alignment rod and was recording shots in just a few minutes. Love the functionality and being able to record several strings of shots in different groups on the device itself. Very satisfied, many thanks.

Spent a few moments figuring proper distance from muzzle then all worked great. Fast set up. No more tripods and sunscreen isdued. Great item.

I bought the V3 from longrangehunting.com about a month ago. I really hesitated because of the price, but after reading many positive reviews on the system, I broke down and put in my order. I'm so glad that I did. The unit is very easy to setup, and has given me readings on everything that's come outta my barrels since. It's been a huge help in working up my loads and doping long distance shots. I've even used it to compare high end factory ammo (from Nosler match, to winchester silvertips) to my own loadings which come out more consistent than the factory issued cartridges. Now when I'm testing loads at 100 yards, I can tell if a load and the workup I did will correlate to good long distance groupings. Very pleased and don't know how I got by so long without it. A+++ product.

Thanks longrangehunting.com. You guys rock.

I already owned the V2 versión. It is such a great instrument, that I also bought the V3 release. I just could not help having the improved version which is as fine as the first plus more comfortable to operate.
A word aside: I had some technical problems with my V2 display and the people at Magnetto Speed very kindly and promptly solved the situation and, considering the nature of it, replaced it with a new one. So, great people, great support.
And thanks to LRH, for helping me in teh purchase of this present unit!

I tested this new device yesterday and shot (34) 458 Socom rounds across the sensor deck. It read every one of them perfectly. The ease of the range setup is awesome and fast. Now switching between weapons takes arranging the spacers to space the sensor deck correctly for each weapon but if the same one is used it is a fast slide it on, cinching it down, tighten the knob and after plugging in the cable to the bayo and the head unit, it is ready to read shots. It works great for me and LRH did their part very well by keepign me informed of the status and even asked me and offered to refund my money due to the back order. I chose to just wait on them to get stock due to the excellent customer service. Very satisfied with the product and the service.
