Why a Bulletseeker/Speedtracker should be your next purchase

Serious shooters across the globe understand that tiny margins can make the difference between deadeye shooting and inconsistent, uninspiring hits – or even worse, misses.

You may have a top-of-the line ELR rifle, ultra-clear high definition scope, and custom-made ammunition of the highest calibre, but how do you know these are all working in perfect harmony?

The importance of muzzle velocity cannot be understated, which is why we have put together our top three reasons why every serious shooter needs a Bulletseeker/Speedtracker in their bag.


1. Inconsistent velocity = inconsistent shots

You fire off a round and it hits 50m short of the target. You adjust your zeroing to compensate, fire again and this time it soars straight over the target. Are you doing something wrong, or is your muzzle velocity completely inconsistent?

Muzzle velocity directly correlates to the flight of a round across the range, with specific levels of velocity providing a much more stable and flat flight path. Deviate from this velocity and your round will carry differently – whether too high, or too low.

A lower muzzle velocity may be suitable for shorter distances, but when tested at extended range this can result in excessive bullet drop and some rather embarrassing misses. Shoot at too high a velocity and you’ll fire straight over your target – it has to be perfect.

To put it simply, you could spot, line up and release your shot in the absolute perfect manner, but if your bullet velocity is even just a touch off, you’re not hitting where you should be.

Don’t make that mistake.


2. Get with the times

Now, a Bulletseeker/Speedtracker is not the only way to test your muzzle velocity – but it just might be the best. In years past, professional shooters have put their trust in chronographs and, more recently, the LabRadar, but these devices come with a few significant shortfalls.

First and foremost, traditional chronographs require the user to shoot through multiple ‘windows’ in order to track the bullet’s velocity. If you hadn’t guessed already, the problem here lies with potential disruption to your bullet’s flight path as it heads through the windows. And that’s assuming the device has in fact registered your shot!

Furthermore, setting these devices up is by no means a non-intrusive exercise. Unless you are lucky enough to secure a wide, unobstructed shooting area on your range, you may struggle to find suitable placement.

Designed to tackle these problems, the Bulletseeker/Speedtracker attaches directly to a rifle’s picatinny rail, allowing the user to take advantage of the benefits of velocity tracking with ease.

The bulletseeker/speedtracker also features a supported phone app, enabling you to view your shot readings in seconds and make the necessary adjustments to shoot straight.

Eliminating yet another problem, the bulletseeker/speedtracker’s on-rifle deployment means that if your rifle moves, so does the tracker. Gone are the days of constant re-adjustment or untracked shots due to slight deviations in the rifle’s positioning. If you move, so does the bulletseeker/speedtracker.

Don’t get left behind.


3. Experiment with ease

As any professional shooter will tell you, it’s not just about staying with the times – it’s about getting ahead of them.

If you’re a competition winning marksman, there is always someone gunning for your position. Whether it’s testing new rifles as they are released to market, fine tuning your ammunition or modifying your barrel, there is always room for improvement.

However, making these changes and testing their efficacy is quite a laborious process. With the BULLETSEEKER/SPEEDTRACKER’s ability to attach directly to the rifle and record velocity with immense accuracy, it has never been easier to make alterations and test their worth.

After all, the proof is in the pudding – let’s grab a bowl.

Top 5 tips from some of KO2M-KO1M’s finest shooters

Top 5 tips from some of KO2M-KO1M’s finest shooters

The King of 2 Mile and the King of 1 Mile, or KO2M-KO1M, is one of the world’s most prestigious long-range shooting competitions – and for good reason. Hitting a target at range is challenging at the best of times, but when that range is a full mile (1,600m), it’s a whole different ball game.

To get an insight into what it takes to shoot at an elite level, we spoke to Stefan and Harry, the ultra-long range team duo who claimed 2nd place at the 2022 KO1M in France.

Read on to discover their top five tips for long-range mastery.

  1. Get the right tool for the job

Many rifles are capable of engaging targets at extended range, but not every rifle is right for every shooter.

From the barrel and stock to the bipod and scope, each component of a rifle should be tailored to your specific preferences as a shooter. Think of it this way, you could probably run a 10k in someone else’s shoes, but wouldn’t it be more comfortable to wear your own?

A surgeon by trade, Stefan is built for precision, so it’s only right his rifle is too.

The gun of choice for the 2022 KO2M was the Desert Tech ELR rifle in 375 Cheytac, a custom ULR rifle designed and produced exclusively by Solid Solution Designs in the Netherlands. Checkout the below specifications for Stephan’s KO1M Custom rifle.

  1. Spot with confidence

Pulling the trigger and sending a round ripping through the air is only one minute detail in the KO1M shooting process. Without effective spotting, you might as well be shooting in the dark.

The importance of a quality spotting scope cannot be overstated, especially when shooting at ranges of a mile or more. From the level of variable zoom to the way it feels in your hand, small details make enormous differences when the margin of error is so small. Stefan and Harry opted for the Hensoldt Spotter 45 with a H-32 reticle, combining ease of use with durability and clarity at extreme range.

Take the time to consider your options when finding your next spotting scope – it might just be the difference between success and failure.


  1. Not all rounds are created equal

To the layman, a bullet is a bullet. But to experienced shooters and gun enthusiasts like Stefan and Harry, the hardware you choose can make all the difference.

Loading their custom SSD rifle with 300 Remington Ultra Magnum rounds, the duo maintained an extreme spread of 2-3m/s with their handloaded ammunition. Stefan takes the art of reloading extremely seriously – weight sorting each bullet after meplat trimming and painstakingly pointing each round with expert precision.

Arguably the most important part in the process is practice. The most consistent, beautifully formed rounds can cause even the best shooters some grief, if they’re not accustomed to their flight.

Your rifle deserves only the very best in custom ammunition – and so do you.

Brass: Norma

Bullet: Berger Target Hybrids 230 grain

Primer: CCI magnum large rifle primers

  1. Communication and teamwork

Harry and Stefan have known each other and shot together for years, but many competition shooters may not have that luxury.

Whether you know your spotter well or you’ve just met, it’s absolutely crucial to develop an understanding with each other. Jumping straight into the shoot without effective pre-planning can result in frustration, confusion and, most importantly, inaccurate shots.

Stefan made two things very clear:

  1. Read back every line of communication to your spotter
  2. Define and KNOW your terminology

These two tips will set you in good stead, helping your spotter ensure you have understood their directions, and giving you the confidence to quickly make adjustments without repetition or confusion.

Stefan and Harry chose to dial in for wind throughout the shoot, which was made effortless thanks to their shorthand and confidence in each other.


  1. Practice makes perfect

Shooting at ultra-long range is an artform – one which takes years of diligent practice to master. You could be the greatest shooter at the range, but hitting steel from over a mile away is a different animal entirely.

It goes without saying, but shooting at these distances is not an easy thing to arrange. Unfortunately, but perhaps fortunately for the general public, setting up your rifle and firing a few rounds two miles across the countryside tends to be frowned upon.

Thankfully, there are organisations across Europe which specialise in EXLRS – Extended Long-Range Shooting. These organisations host events specifically designed to allow shooting enthusiasts to test and hone their skills at extreme distance.

The One Mile Club is Europe’s largest international EXLRS group, with upcoming events in Europe now open for registration.

If you want to take your prowess as a marksman to new heights and try your luck at earning the coveted One Mile Patch, you can find out more here.


So, let’s summarise:

  1. Get the right tool for the job – your gun, your way
  2. Spot with confidence – seeing is half the battle
  3. Not all rounds are created equal – custom handloaded rounds can transform your rifle’s performance
  4. Communication and teamwork – spotter and shooter. Without one, the other cannot succeed
  5. Practice makes perfect test yourself and learn from some of Europe’s greatest shooters before hitting the field of competition


Good luck – shoot straight.
