Labradar

(8 customer reviews)

Labradar performance exceeds any consumer level velocity acquisition system. It continually measures velocities of your rifle, pistol, shotgun (slugs), arrows or pellets up to 100 yards depending upon the size of the bullet. Smaller bullets do not track as far as large bullets. Multiple distances for velocity display are user definable on the unit. LabRadar measures velocities up to 3,900 f.p.s. with 0.1% accuracy using six AA batteries. Labradar is not dependent on any light source and can be used indoors/outdoors in all weather conditions. It is positioned to the side of the weapon, not downrange where other systems are prone to damage. Each shot series provides Hi, Low, Average, ES, SD.  Individual shots display velocities at the muzzle and up to five additional distances along with Kinetic Energy at each distance. The data is downloadable via USB or SD card.  Built in IPSC / IDPA Power Factor Calculator.  Mounts on standard ¼ x 20 tripod thread. (tripod not included).

    All Expectations Exceeded

    Having owned an Oehler 35P for years, I was already well versed with precision chronography. But traditional chronographs have one MAJOR drawback: The hassle of setup. Tripods here, windscreens there, cords wrapped around the bench…time to change the printer paper again! I found myself using my Oehler less and less because of the setup at a public range. The Labradar gave me hope that using a chrono could be easier, and I’ve NOT been disappointed. It has ALL the precision of my Oehler, and it takes about 2 minutes to setup. Here’s the big thing: Because it goes right up, I USE it a LOT more, so my load development is far more precise. I actually don’t shoot without it.

    If you like to shoot super high-velocity cartridges (>4,000 fps), or you shoot a lot of very small caliber bullets (e.g. .204, .17 HMR), you might have issues with bullet tracking–the majority of us won’t notice. Take the plunge, and you’ll soon find your old chrono relegated to a shelf in the garage

    A great chrono with awesome features to include the ability to download your data into EXCEL and if you enter projectile weight, you get your ft-lbs; I can’t wait for Bluetooth. I had 30 tracking errors in over 600 rounds. I tried re-aligning, moving closer and farther from the muzzle, switching to pistol for slower rifle projectiles (best results), & restarting the radar.

    I had three anomalies of over 5,000 to 7500 FPS, I am attributing to muzzle blast/debris. I also had the LabRadar restart itself after a few shots from my 458 SOCOM. I moved it farther away and adjusted the settings to reduce this from happening.

    Overall I am very happy. I no longer worry about aiming between rods and over a beam at the right height. I kill two birds with one stone on everything, track velocities and verify accuracy on paper. Previously I focused on not shooting my chronograph.

    I tested 458 SOCOM, 5.56mm, 45 ACP, 357 SIG, 9mm, and 44 MAG. Muzzle brakes had the most difficulty. Buy one !

    Best Chrono EVER !!!

    Thanks for making this. I have had several expensive and several cheap chronos and all led me to be frustrated with changing light conditions, wires, straps and shims, change of POI, etc. Now I am set up and getting all my velocities within minutes. I love the data that I can download from the SD card, works great in Excel. I use it for 223, 9mm and 308. Suppressed and standard. It works as advertised, no gimmick

    I held off on buying for a while to get others feedback and opinions on how great it works.. But after all the good & bad reviews.. I’m here to say I LOVE IT.. works totally as described.. Read the manual.. Set it up and it works great.. If ya have any questions.. Richard will help any way he can.. Great customer service.. Totally appreciated.. Wasn’t nearly as hard to use as alot of reviews or videos claim.. Use the sight notch.. Program it and shoot.. Thanks for a GREAT PRODUCT..

    Got this mine a while back and just now sending a review. The Labradar is an exceptionally well designed unit that works with incredible accuracy. The data it captures is enough to keep any geek more than happy while also providing data in a way that it is very easy to review for people who just want the basic info. This is one of the few products I can recommend 100% with no reservations!

    I would offer that there are a few opportunities for continued improvement:
    1. Integrate a sighting device (like some of the third party people have developed) on the top to make setting up significantly easier. This is so important because getting the device aimed correctly at the target is crucial to having a great experience.
    2. Integrate a mounting system for the external battery pack since that is the primary way virtually everyone uses the device. I don’t think I’ve ever even put AA batteries into the built in compartment.
    3. My only negative comment – The optional app that connects via Bluetooth is quite disappointing. I won’t go into details here because this review is about the Labradar itself. But if you are getting this unit with a high expectation to remote operate it from a phone or ipad, be warned that the app is pretty unreliable and buggy.

    I fully agree with “Jim – June 27, 2019 “.

    Just used it today, by far the best and most simple device to use. Everyone at the range was also impressed.

    I’ve used my Labradar now in two shooting sessions and cannot be happier. The menu takes a bit getting used to, but I’m sure it will quickly become routine. In 40 shots there was just one failure to record a velocity, and that might have been my fault. I’ve had an Oehler 35 for 25 years. It’s still working fine, but the Labradar is far easier to set up, and there is no need to wait for a cease-fire on the range to step out with the sky screens.
