Nice! I like the 22/250. Shot a few but never owned one.

What range do you set the LabRadar to pick up the 22/250 bullet?
Using the Doppler beam, I think I set the first yardage marker at like 10 feet. Shooting suppressed subs by the way, I switch it to pistol and it picks up (Doppler), never tried the mic.

Rebel, I have about 15, 22-250 cases that are range pickups, my money is they are once fired. PM me your addy and I will get them in the mail to you.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the bunch of ya'll!
Thanks, will do.

One of my favorite calibers, .22-250 has been part of my life since I was 17yrs young. We have taken critters large and small, a friend has taken a cow Elk every year for most of his life. Head shots at ~ 200 yds with 55 gr SP. My current rifle is a R700, 26" Varmint in the HS Precision stock. Have fun 8)

Not really read up one of those. But really I am jealous :lol:
Yes, I am a Baptist, and yes I carry a gun. You might think I carry a gun because I don't trust God. Well you would be wrong. I have complete faith in my Lord. It is mankind I have no trust in

Couple of observations:

1. Sh!tloads better than a chrony you have to shoot through, especially when others are shooting at the range. I hated making others wait while I aligned the old chrony. Also the data files...nice!

2. Despite spending $500 for this thing, I'm too cheap to buy AA batteries. Since all my flashlights and lanterns use 18650 Li-ion batteries, I picked up a charger/power bank on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WM ... UTF8&psc=1
With that thing and a couple of extra batteries in the truck, I always have power for the flashlights and the LabRadar. And I can take it with me elsewhere to charge my phone.

3. A Pelican 1470 makes the perfect carry case. But damn they're expensive. Keep an eye on ebay and you may be able to pick up a used one for cheap. I got one for ~$35.00.


Regarding #2 above: If you haven't experienced the latest in Chinese LED Li-Ion flashlights, check out something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SK98-CREE-XM-L ... 2749.l2649 or this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tactical-35000 ... 6d41a1fc02. Once you experience these things you'll toss your old mag lights.

I've got a set of 22-250 RCBS dies, free to a good home if anyone can use them, just cover shipping.
I build the #TTFPowderStand for the Lee Turret Press
