I picked up my LR a few months back. I never setup without it now. I can't imagine shooting without it.Thanks, I made a call a couple weeks ago. I’ll prob have to just show up one day and see if I can befriend anyone. I may just go adead an pick up a Labradar, At 500 bucks, I can think of a many number of things I need more right now.
I read somewhere that it was hard to get group information with a Magneto attached to a barrel. Any opinions here?Consider the inexpensive Magnetospeed. Simplifies load development, I bought a V3 3-4 years ago, wish I had one 25yrs ago when I first started reloading. Hard to get good groups with a high SD/ES. Wasted time, powder, and bullets prior to owning one.
Indeed it will. Alters barrel harmonics when attached.
Disagree somewhat. The effects of the Magnetospeed are repeatable, you can still shoot groups with a magnetospeed on you’ll just notice a slight poi shift when it’s removed. I’m not saying it has no impact on barrel harmonics, it’s just not that big of a deal. Takes less a minute to take it on/off if you already have it pre-adjusted with the right spacers in.
Not at all. Case in point:
This is why I like this forum, good information!A handful of guys not seeing a POI difference does not make a consensus. Every barrel is different and will behave differently.
The simple truth is that yes, it does make a difference - how small or large that may turn out to be. It is a temporary variable that is present only while testing (bayonet attached). If you opt to selectively ignore whatever variables you deem fit then that is a truly shitty way to gather - and even worse, DISTRIBUTE - false information on the Internet.
There are multiple examples of the Magnetospeed changing POI randomly over various sites out there, along with my experience supporting the same conclusion. This is the very reason that David Tubb developed his product!
