Joe , when you get it going see if you can run it concurrent with a laptop. Supposedly it will track the bullet and you can see the velocities from muzzle to about 100 m . at any point. not sure if this is bs .

F#@% buying it in Australia!

Bought mine from buymylabradar.com
They are $560 US with $100 US postage for a grand total of $813 AUD.
When it arrives I'll sell my Magnetospeed and my traditional chronograph......and hopefully recoup some coin.

Buying one in Australia they start at $995 and then you add postage!

Well - ordered it last Sunday from the USA and it arrived at my door in Australia on Friday......
Can't fault that service and DHL..... :D

You won't regret that purchase Joe. :clap:

DHL obviously didn’t know what it was or would be used for. DHL Australia sent a scope of mine back to the US last year proclaiming that they have an agreement with the Attorney Generals department not to transport gun parts or accessories in Australia, even if no licence/ import permit is necessary :roll:

That is quite concerning. I'll need to remember that if I make any gun related purchases. Was the scope reshipped using Fedex or did that whole purchase go to S#%t? :shock:

It was from EuroOptic who were understandably annoyed at DHL Australia being abject dicks, and when it was returned to them they reshipped it via USPS which takes longer but it made it to Australia so Border Farce could demand GST via their unreliable online payment system. I then had an argument with them about supposedly being undercharged the credit card surcharge before they finally released the package in to Australia Post who were reliable for a change :doh: :roll:

Let’s just say I really, really hope I don’t have to send the scope back for repairs any time soon :pray: trouble is it did cop some abuse on a recent hunt and I’m starting to have doubts about it....

Anyway, apologies for the hi jack, I’m keen to hear how labradar goes in Australian conditions
