It’s the standard deviation that I would find compelling if it were possible to record strings longer than 10 shots. While you could write a formula in excel for that (well, someone with a brain better than mine could), you have to enter absolutely every shot in to the spreadsheet.

The SD just seems as though it could be of value if you could really give it some meat to digest. 10 shots simply isn’t it.

Magnetospeed is no bueno for handguns so I also wouldn’t consider one.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.

I made an oopsie the other day. 223 55g sp at 2988fps. thankfully it was a tad high and by some miracle it still seems to work fine.

I decided on using a laser bore sighter after the near death of my chrony, made life so much easier. line the rifle up. use the bore sighter and a 3x5 card to make sure its the same height front and rear.

Labradar. The OP is getting one, end of story. He’ll be very happy, I used an Oehler for 30 years, splurged to get a Labradar. Will never go back, worth every penny due to simplicity, data amount, manipulation and storage. Plus down range ballistics. Love mine, but you do have to be smart enough to read and follow directions....

.22LR - .223 - .22-250 - .243 - 6mm REM - .25-20 - .25-35 - .25 BB - .250/3000 - .257 WBY - .260 - .30 M1 - .300 Savage - .32 H&R - .303 - .338-06 - .338 WM - .38 S&W - .35 REM - .38-55 - .45 LC - .45-70 - .50-70

Been there, done that. Shot mine with a 87gr 6mm Remington. Needless to say, not much was left.

Now using a Magnetospeed. So far so good

Does anyone use the magnetospeed?
Yes. People who don’t shoot pistols or shoot for accuracy when measuring velocity. Not me.
