I am really not a fan of any chrono. It seems we always change the MV in the program so the program will match the drops anyway. So heck, I can make a good guess then correct for it.
By the way phorwath, you still being fooled by thar Swaro Laser guide??
The chronographs I've been around mostly worked well. Oehler 33s. I have a PACT also and it works well in good lighting. But the Oehler is a bit more reliable. I sure wouldn't go to the effort of shooting over them at 1000 yds if I didn't think they'd record a velocity when the bullet passed over the skyscreens. I only really trust a velocity off any chronograph when I'm shooting over two that I'm familiar with at the same time. Then I can usually tell if I'm getting credible data or not.
Ahhh... the Swaro versus the Leica! You for sure had a bad streak of luck with the Swaro LRFs. I probly would have given up on them. I was beginning to wonder if a glitch slipped into the production line on the later model Swaros. I've been fortunate, by comparison. What with your Leica hype, you've got me awaiting the release of the Leica 1600 LRFs.
If their 1600 model will range 1600 yds, provide an accurate station pressure, temperature, and inclination/declination - I want one.
The 7mm - 300 Win Mag is a very appealing cartridge. Impressive MV, and I'm sure much easier on the throats than the 7mm RUMs. Perhaps the ideal 7mm cartridge with the 180 VLDs - all things considered.
