Thanks to an Independent Research Group (IRG) we are able to share some definitive data on how the BULLETSEEKER has been performing.
This testing was performed in the USA several weeks ago and was just released. It was a completely independent testing group that was not paid in any way by LONGSEEKER sro. We agreed to publish regardless of the results since we feel that even when some challenges or errors are found, they can help to improve the product in the future.
Here are some direct quotes:
The BULLETSEEKER chronograph was tested on a couple different rifles and found to be very accurate. This product is in its early stages, there’s still a lot of refinement to do with the Apple and Android apps but the unit itself shows promise in terms of minimal error compared to the big Infinition radar.
In case you missed it, the iOS APP was recently made public on the APP Store so you can download it at your leisure.
Average error of the BULLETSEEKER was only -1 fps in two 10-shot tests using the 260 Remington with relatively slow bullets ~2660 fps. The error was greater with the 223 (AR-15). This is expected due to the bullet being smaller and faster as well as the bullet having a greater rate of slowing down right out of the muzzle, so the mounting position of the chrono along the forearm becomes very critical. We noted in our tests that when mounted near the muzzle (5” back from suppressor) there was an average of -7 fps error in MV. However when mounted 12.75” back the error fell to -3 fps. For fast bullets with low BC’s, they slow down very rapidly so there is likely to be more sensitivity to rail position than with higher BC slower bullets.
Here are the test results for those of you that love to read and analyze data.
You can see here that the comparisons are made across the line.
Note that the speeds are compared based on where the BULLETSEEKER is positioned on the rifle.
Also note that different ammunition is tested.
Generally speaking, the results were impressive. We often hear from customers that "this is exactly the product that I have been waiting for". We are pleased that testing experts are happy with the results of what the BULLETSEEKER can do. It is also a perfect storm for what else we can do in the future with radar chronograph technology.
In fact, our favourite comment from the IRG is this;
Overall, I’m very impressed with the Bulletseeker’s proven ability to measure velocity and I’m even more impressed with your approach to making your product better. I expect it will improve vastly over the next few years.
We hope that you enjoy reading this report as much as we did. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to ask us. Also, don't hesitate on sharing this date with your fellow precision enthusiasts. We have added the PDF report to our website and you can download it HERE.
Oh and in case you want to see how they did. Below is a photo of their testing setup. They even did some testing with two BULLETSEEKER mounted for comparisons.
