    Measuring MV

    Hi Roy, yes I do put it close to the muzzle, one of the unit settings is distance from muzzle - these are 0-6, 6-12, and 12-18. I use the 0-6 setting. So, you say that the output is not a beam, but a wave spreading in all directions like the ripples from a stone dropped in a pond? If that is correct, then I can see straight away that it will measure true MV. Obviously I had the wrong idea of the science - Thanks for the clarification! M snoozin' in Monmouthshire

    Measuring MV

    Hi, bought myself a Labradar for Xmas, and having some difficulty understanding how it measures MV. I get the measurements down range and the science behind it, but how does it measure MV when the unit is anything up to 18 inches from the side of the muzzle and level with said muzzle. Surely the first measurement is when the bullet first breaks the beam, which can be several feet from the muzzle - so is that what it calls MV, or does it extrapolate back to the muzzle? Enquiring minds need to know M scratching his head in sunny(for once) Monmouthshire

    replicating the 22 hornet with .223

    Hi, I assume that by 13g you mean grains(gr) not grams(g)? Getting off the pedants pedastle and assuming I have read your post correctly, Modern Reloading gives velocities around to 2500 to 2800 for the maximum recommended loads in 22 hornet. In 223, 28gr of H335 would push a 40gr bullet to 3800 fps, again according to Modern Reloading. Personally, I use 25.8gr of H335 under a 53gr Vmax for 3250 fps, which does everything I need from my 223 M
