Very likely i'd say.

Anyway, found a flaw with the LabRadar which means it probably won't be seen as a competition chrono. It's fine if it detects the shot, but on very quiet rifles even with the mic really close to the muzzle it won't always do it. We've got one which it missed about 90% of the shots and seeing as the action & silencer is largely standard it would mean we'd probably have a problem in any given competition.

Ive not played with the radar jobbie myself,just used it when its there. My only concern with it is what ia the minimiuim range it will pick a pellet.up at?

 

Legal limit is 12ftlb muzzle energy, so if it needs say 3ft downrange to track its not measuring muzzle energy.

 

Just wondering

Jon they haven't. They use the LMBR R2. The chronos come in the BFTA kit box and are passed on to every region hosting an event. I've not only been part of the CSFTA crew organising their grand prix i've also taken then boxes to and from other GP's as well. 

They do not use the Air Chrony. The only time I've ever seen it in use was at the WAFTA Quarry GP.

I've got several photos over the years of the R2's being used at BFTA events.
