what chrony

I am looking at getting a chrono for load testing and am wondering which one to get. I was looking at the beta master at cabelas does any one have experience with it.

I use a Shooting Chrony less and less all the time. At least the older models change velocity as much as 100fps when the sun goes behind a cloud or as the light dims as sunset approaches.

I use the CED Millennium 2 with the IR screens. It works great but in freezing weather you need to keep the screen portion warm. I built a small cardboard box that I insulated and put a couple handwarmers in. Then it works great even in VERY cold temperatures.

I wish I could tell you what chronograph to get, mine is an Oehler 35 that is not made any more . so all I can tell you is what not to get.
DO NOT GET anything that is Shooters Chrony, I had one then I shot it then I shot it again then I smashed it with a large rock and profaned loudly, then attended anger management and I am still pissed that I wasted my money.

p.s. I am a glass is half full kind of guy if I was glass is half empty the review might not have been so positive !!!!!!!!!!

Your report on the CED is the first I have heard or read that was anything but positive. Can you tell us what problems you have had.
Since the 35P is no longer available I had figured the CED millennium was absolutely the best choice, especially with the IR option.

YOU'RE RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

MY OPINION, THE CED Millennium 2 IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE 35P.
Technology has just gotten ahead of it! No offense ment to 35p users. ;)

I've used most of the ones out there over the past 20 years with mixed emotions about them all. Last one was the 35P.

Been using the PVM-21 for the past six months with great satisfaction.

Expect to pay about $800.00, but in today's world...quality doesn't come cheap.
