Chronograph advice

Hi all you gun nuts out there.

I am looking at buying my first chronograph and was wondering what everyone is using firstly and secondly if any one has done any testing between different brands and types to see how much variation there could be.

Not sure if I can stretch the budget to a magneto but I do like quality gear,buy once cry once right?

Cheers

Iíve used several brands but the Labradar by far is superior. Once set up correctly itís a dream to use. No shooting between wires etc. easy to set up. Only downside is the cost.

X2   You said buy once, cry once. Labradar is so far ahead of a chrono it is not funny. AND you will not have the limitations or frustrations a chrono tends to supply. The downside is cost and there is a caveat. Read and follow the instructions! Do this several times to get it all set up right. Once done, yoh are goox to go at the drop of a hat whenever and whereever you may feel the need.

MagnetoSpeed does a good job just need to check zero with it removed.
Superior to any optical chronographs.
Not as good as LabRadar in various aspects but cheaper.
