    "something good not the ones where a i have to shoot beetwen two small spots on the chronny"

    I think you need to shoot between two spots on all chronographs, at least you do for the ones that I have owned or used. I have owned and used Chrony, then upgraded to CED Mellinium II, and I also have an Ohler 35P.

    The CED is a heck of a chonograph, and worth the price.

    If you can tolerate the price, the Ohler is a great chronograph. My 35P functions perfectly under windy conditions that spawn error messages like crazy for both my Chrony and my CED.

    I sold my Oehler and got a CED M2 a few years ago. Simpler to set up and use. Just as accurate as far as I can tell. Much cheaper.

    I like it well enough that I now sell it in the LRH Store.

    have owned a Pact for over 15 years, and can count the shots it's tossed out on one hand. Made in Texas, and come with a very long warranty.

    I will recommend the Oehler 35. It is like having two chronographs in one as it has a 3rd screen and gives you two readings on the same projectile and this will help weed out errors. They are higher in price but they are as good as it gets. So you can buy one right off the bat or dance around the price like I did. I bought to Shooting Chrony's and a Pact before I bought my Oehler. It was not until now that I feel I have one I can trust to be close.

    That said I have never used a CED so I can not say one way or the other on them.

    how do you weed out errors when you don't get errors? <g>!! Seriously I'd shot with the Pact for eons, and also shot the same loads thru a #35P that belonged to a buddy of mine. We saw errors in it, so don't think they're near perfect. But the errors we saw with the Ohler were not in the screens themselves but the rest of the unit. So what was the difference? .0025%, and that's not a quarter of one percent, but 25 thousandths of a percent. That's nine cases of beer for the same accuracey.
