Chronograph Events

Members will have the chance to fire their guns and see an accurate readout of their bullet velocity, as well as other metrics for a string of shots.  This is important information for reloaders testing different rounds, and for long-distance shooters calculating site adjustments.

The device in use will be a LabRadar brand Doppler radar system.  With this type of chronograph, it is not necessary to shoot through hoops or directly over the device, and nothing is attached to the firearm.  All shooting and measuring is done at the firing line, and from the shooting benches. Note: The unit may not always measure .22 LR rounds.

The club will supply the chronograph and a Program Director to operate it.  The amount of time a shooter will have on the unit will depend on attendance and whether or not additional shooters are waiting, in which case we may also use a common target to minimize down time.

Due to the sensitivity of the radar and its wind profile, this is a weather dependent event.  If heavy rain or high winds are forecast please check the club’s website for a cancellation notice before traveling to the range.  These events are for members only.
