Today my new Chronograph was shipped out, I will have it on Tuesday. I’m sure you’re asking, so what, don’t you already have a chronograph? Yes, I do. While it’s a nice one, and it works, it’s not the best fit for what I’m doing. Outdoors it works well, but indoors it’s a problem because I can’t move it past the blast shields on each side of the lanes. So instead of reading 1250fps on a handgun round, it’s reading over 3000 because it’s picking up the muzzle blast.
So what do I have coming that will work better? I’ve got a LabRadar Doppler radar chronograph. This sits behind the firing line, so safer, tracks velocities out to 100 yards and able to provide data from several different distances all at once. And it’s very accurate. I look forward to using this next week.
