Re: VELOCITY at Muzzle / at 10 Feet?
Agreed...the difference is beyond negligible to the VAST majority of those using a Chrony.
Another really important use of a chrony is to check pressure of your loads. Yes, you can "read tea leaves" by looking at primers and such, but the true measure is speed. There is no black magic, and no free lunch. If speed is running where it would equal high pressure, you have high pressure. There's no way around it.
I would very much enjoy one of the new LabRadar chrony's, but I can't justify the cost at this point.
I've heard good reports on the Magneto Speed, I just worry about it affecting groups, since it would in theory affect barrel harmonics. I tend to chrony as much as I can, even when developing loads, for the reasons above. Pressure can be identified through speed. Every time.
