The usual.
-Labradar
-Magnetospeed.

When these came out, my frustration of using a light optic chrono went down, as well as my violent and excessive vulgar outburst on the range.

I guess I don't really have a budget in mind yet. Just want a good unit.

Buy the LabRadar and be done with it. I use it most of the time when shooting.
I do live on a ranch and have my own range. It has given lots of good data about loads and Velocity vs temperature data.
Buy once and cry once. They are on sale right now.

If I had the coin I would go the Lab as I would prefer a unit that does not attach to the barrel but for what I need the Magneto sport does the job.

If you don't want to spend to the extent of the Lab there is also a Steinert Supercrono which is used in a similar way to the Lab

Thanks for the info. I just got my range in at my place so I can shoot right off my back porch now. Making me want to upgrade and expand my equipment.

I got the magnetospeed cuz I'm cheap...problem is most of us shoot for velocity then pull the MS off to shoot for groups. A couple years of that and I will have spent as much on components as I saved by getting the MS instead of the labradar. That's my take on buy once cry once. Not that one is better than the other, but over time the LR is cheaper. But then again I dont own both to do side-by-side testing

MS....goofy POI and group size sometimes but v accurate

LR.....won’t read over 4800fps, sometimes triggering issues. Accurate

Oehler 35.....needs decent daylight
