  1. My only complaint about the magneto speed comes from observing the obvious: The only information you can get is velocity at the muzzle. Even a Chrony can be fired over at different ranges to extract a set of numbers for calculating actual BC. The Lab Radar reads the velocities down range automatically so the process of obtaining on-site BC is much simplified. (If you care about such things) ~Andrew
  2. I'd do the Imperial model if you are looking to nick the US market. We shoot in all weather and wind, out to 1865 yards in MOA and MIL. Importantly, all of our spotting scopes are in MIL, which would suit this unit nicely. Might cost you a little more in postage, though...🙂~Andrew
  3. I have a Tikka CTR Creedmoor and use a Vortex Viper Gen II 5-25X. As soon as i got the rifle I installed a 20 MOA base just to negate any potential elevation problems. It worked. I can pound paint on a 1 MOA gong at 1000 using the Nosler 130 grain RDF. ~Andrew
  4. I have a couple that I keep around for people to use for prairiedog shooting in conjunction with a folding chair but for big game shooting, I'd rather not be saddled with that much gear.~Andrew
  5. What do you shoot and where?~Andrew
  6. I must have a zombie phone for work, and I have downloaded the app, but have no idea how to hook up to blue tooth.🙁 I just set it manually. My tripod is a camera tripod with the single stud draw-down attachment point. It will extend to about an 8 ft radius and lie flat on the grounds with the legs extended if the situation warrants. Your tube looks like mine but much larger and refined. Does it have a reticle in it?? The small tube I affix does allow fairly precise alignment at 100 yards.~ Andrew
  7. If touching the unit sets it out of alignment then connect with blue tooth and set it remotely. The APP is free and you don't need to touch the unit once aligned. Or stiffen up the mount. I do not use any of the LabRadar-marketed mounting units. Instead I have a very secure tripod arrangement. The entire tripod would need to move if the LabRadar was nudged so once set, barring an idiot smacking into it, It does not move. If I have one biich about the unit it's the lack of an adequate aiming device. I use a 4" long x .25" bore thick walled plastic tube set in the V-notch. This allows me to sight on a target 100 yards distant and collect my data with no fuss. Paying attention to the option parameters is the first step in getting every shot to record.~Andrew
  8. Why blame the LabRadar on operator error? ~Andrew
  9. The more I use mine, the better I like it. I have shot it using both triggering modes; both doppler pick up and accoustic, and both methods have been quite accurate. In the US we get a more powerful version so I have been able to track rounds past 100 yards. When that data is put to practical field use it has been spot on.~Andrew

    Magtech primers

    I use the Magtech 7.5's. I bought several thousand on sale at one of the local retailers. They have been very good.~Andrew

    mag length

    Hi Andy, I"ll need to get my notes out this evening but I believe I'm using a stout charge of (sorry) Varget. I FL size my cases, trim to uniform length, seat deep and crimp the result. I get half MOA using a "Scout" scope.~Andrew

    mag length

    I would seat it deep and forget about the lands. I mean, you spent the money on the dies, right? Might as well use the alignment they can/will hopefully afford. To seat them shallow you could just squeeze the neck mouth with a pair of pliers. I shoot Nosler 125's in my Steyr Scout and they are the most accurate bullet I have in that rifle -seated to Nosler's recommended OAL. Which is nowhere near the lands I'm certain.~Andrew
  13. Great cartridge but lack of target bullets would give me pause.~Andrew

    Howa 6.5 grendel

    Powder residue and bullets are the best polish! Good job on the load. I can't even get the light weight bullets off the shelf in these parts.~Andrew
