    Thank you Mustang for the information . On my range as I use it alone I move a table to the desired range so only 100 yards is less of a problem then from 300 yards where a large pine trunk is 3 feet from bullet path . My son thinks I should cut that 70 foot tree down I have all the branches off to almost twenty feet and I doubt the bullet path will be effected 3 feet from the trunk.

    I do not shoot anything smaller then .22 caliber and most of those are home swaged and have a flat base . Other swaged bullets like the ones shaped in a .223 die then sized for .351 W.S.L. have a unknown B.C. I could find it with Labradar not that is really matters a lot for the short ranges .

    I read the instructions on the Garmin I like the idea of measurements of speed at distance of the labradar because that will give true B.C. with computer program.
    When I think back on all the **** I learned in high school it's a wonder I can think at all ! And then my lack of education hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall.

    Our berms were 10 ft high and the lanes were approx 20 feet wide. I had zero problems getting readings. Shortest I tried was 10 yds from muzzle with 10 yds increments out to 100 yds. It even picks up my 17 Hornet 20 gr bullets put to 100 yds about 60% of the time.

    Beware of Shooters with Muzzle Breaks or Ultra/Mega Mags on the firing line with you when using the Lab Radar. It will activate from their Muzzle Blasts and give a Failure to Read error. If you are firing at the same time period; your data for that shot will not register. I tend to use mine when Few to No other shooters are at the range.

    I'm waiting on our club Labradar users to start selling theirs to buy the new Garmin's. We had our first a couple of weeks ago - sold for $400 but there are more to come.

    I got the Garmin a couple of weeks ago. Very sweet unit and relays all info to the app flawlessly. First time I used it was in an indoor range shooting CCI Standard Velocity LR and it picked up every shot.

    Glad I didn't get the Labradar as I was in the market for one when the Garmin popped up. I got the Garmin at Cabelas on a 10% off day and had it delivered to Bass Pro in NH which is a short drive away and tax free.
