    I didn't have good results with the magnetospeed when using muzzle brakes. The Lab Radar has proven itself to be reliable and accurate

    A firearms dealer I know locally here in the UK told me a Magnetospeed chronograph wouldn't fit over a JET-Z sound moderator / suppressor, so I repeated it. The ones I've seen look too small to fit over anything other than a rimfire moderator. Personally I've never bothered with a chronograph. I simply take an educated guess at velocity by running it through STEROK PRO, check drop from 100 yards to a far greater distance be very precise with temperature,, elevation etc, and true the velocity that way.
    It's all very well having a chronograph that clamps over the barrel, but I really can't imagine the barrel harmonics aren't vastly altered so what's the point anyway

    Agree with you that's why the Lab Radar is such an improvement

    Both need consideration, as some manufacturers, such as Hornady and Nosler, allegedly exaggerate their figures.
