LabRadars are nice. You should be able to get .30
velocities out to 100yds.

Labradars are fantastic tools. Wonderful to get accurate data no matter what the weather conditions.

Like your wind flag Art. Last time I went to the 1,000 yard range I use they have flags every 100 yards. Every other flag was blowing opposite direction due to some down draft or circular wind pattern in the valley. Was super odd and almost wished had not had flags to worry about that day. One at bench and target usually is enough for me with one mid range if shooting long.

Thanks. I have my surveyor tape flags at my fancy 3 legged bench, 100 yds and 150 yds. Not usually much wind here because my range and property back up to about a 300 ft steep hill, almost vertical.

The LabRadar did track the 10MM out to 100 yards.

When I was playing with one, I noticed the bigger the
bullet, the easier it was to track.

.223 only tracked to 50yds, IIRC.

And what the hell is that 10mm load.

9.5 of Longshot under a Hornady 180 jacket bullet. Safe enough load to trust the powder dispenser on my 550.

I guess it's not faking the funk then. I was wondering if it was BS or not.

How often does free and good go in same sentence. Will say some of the free shooting Apps are decent compared to paid versions such as Strelock but the Pro version is so much better. Going to have to look more closely at QuickLoad.

if Quickload would run on a iMac ios w/o a windoz simulator program I would already own a copy, but they are not smart enough to write code for it

would like to have it to run, a real time saver for load development from everything I have read on the program
