Hi
My reloader friend just returned my unit and got exactly similar results and cannot work it out either.
Tight or back bored barrels have similar results.
Hypothesis, guns "bang" not "crack" as rifles. We both have not recorded speeds in excess of the sound barrier even though some cartridge boxes specifies supersonic (>1150fps).
Is it possible that the Magneto Speed is giving the true speed of the shot compared to other chronographic methods as it is a new way to measure speed of multiple projectiles (shot and wad)?
Subsonic 22RF make a "bang" but Supers definitely "crack".
The consistency of velocities obtained from shells out of the one box is very good.
I still have not tried steel shot in case it is the lead not registering correctly.
Thanks in advance.

Still no reply ? Did you attempt to contact them again ?

If they haven't gotten back to you, then people stay clear of them. I have no tolerance for businesses like that.
