Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Caldwell unveiled the VelociRadar Chronograph at SHOT Show 2024. Priced at $549.99, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill chronograph. While most devices in the market cap out at measuring muzzle velocity, the VelociRadar takes it up a notch. It’s all about giving shooters and hunters a complete view of their bullet’s performance, tracking it downrange.

What sets the VelociRadar apart is its use of Chirp radar technology. This nifty feature allows it to calculate not just the true muzzle velocity but also the bullet’s ballistic coefficient and its energy downrange. For long-range shooters and hunters, this means more accurate shots and a clear understanding of their firearm’s effective range.

The device also has several advantages over traditional light sensor chronographs. One of the most significant benefits is its placement – right next to the shooter. This means no more setting up downrange and no more waiting for a cease-fire to make adjustments.

Poor lighting conditions? No problem. The VelociRadar thrives where light sensor chronographs falter, reliably tracking velocities in any lighting situation. Its 2.8” color screen is a easy to read, displaying shot information and settings with clarity.

Caldwell hasn’t skimped on accessories either. The VelociRadar comes with a premium ball head tripod, great for bench or prone shooting. Its pivoting head makes target alignment quick and hassle-free. There’s also a recoil-activated trigger for enhanced reliability, especially useful with suppressed firearms or in indoor ranges where the standard acoustic trigger might falter.

Battery life is another plus. The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery lasts longer, saving you from the constant hassle of replacing disposable batteries.

And for those who love tech integration, the VelociRadar syncs with the free Caldwell app. This feature lets users remotely control the chronograph, create and store shot strings, name shot data, and tweak settings on the go.

Caldwell’s VelociRadar isn’t just for bullets whizzing over 4,000 feet per second; it’s equally adept at measuring arrows with precision. For those keen on getting the full ballistic picture, the Caldwell VelociRadar Chronograph appears to be a solid choice.

We’re looking forward to getting one in for review.

    A little late to the game! Now with Garmin in the game and Labradar coming out with their new Chrono, these won’t survive
