Has anyone had recent experience with the Magnetospeed chronograph for measuring shotgun velocities?
I have one and I really haven't given it a fair trial, but it seems to be reasonably accurate. The Magnetospeed guys say it works better if you use Number 6 lead pellets. For some reason smaller pellets don't generate enough of a signal.Has anyone had recent experience with the Magnetospeed chronograph for measuring shotgun velocities?
No. It's an induction chronograph which has two sensors in the bayonet. Any metal works (some way better than others. Lead isn't very good.) Plastic is non-conductive and non-magnetic so it won't interfere with how it works.plastic wad is interfering with the ability of the sensor to pick up the smaller size lead shot thru the plastic
