The Labradar Ballistic Chronograph is your own personal Doppler Radar.
No more need to lug around a chronograph, be limited by small shooting windows, or even light levels. Lab Radar can store an infinite amount of shots and strings on an SD card for later, or even download your data straight to your PC! This unit is almost the definition of “set-and-forget”, simply set up you Labradar Unit on a tripod of your choice, set your unit to the mode that you want, make sure that the muzzle of your weapon is close enough to the unit to trigger it with the muzzle blast, and you’re all set to get load developing!
Contrary to other chronographs which are set up downrange, the Labradar Ballistic Chronograph is positioned to the side of the firearm so it’s never at risk of taking damage. This means a longer life, and greater accessibility between shots. Furthermore, the Labradar can measure bullets continuously from the muzzle out to 100 yards, with 1 muzzle point and 5 additional points which can be set at whatever position along the trajectory. All of these points have individual Hi, Low, Average, ES, and SD data. Each point will also display velocity and kinetic energy.

Believe it or not, this is my SECOND Lab Radar! I use them, along with my Magneto Speed on a regular basis. I use both systems when load testing, or verifying velocities. I find the Lab Radar a more universal tool than the Magneto Speed, simply because all I do is set it up, turn it on with the appropriate sensitivity settings, and shoot! The Magneto speed can be somewhat cumbersome for attaching, and can affect barrel harmonics and POI vs POA. The velocity readings are quite similar, so oftentimes I will use both when determining velocities on a ladder test for a precision rifle. The only drawback to the Lab Radar is its sensitivity to aiming. You can buy an aftermarket sight for it, or I found that if I cut a straw and tape it to the top, it works just as good.
