In the last two hours I have sent about 20 round through my Oehler and it is still working perfectly. I am very happy and I am also glad you are happy with your pact, it is obviosly better than the one I had.
As for the 9 cases of beer. Maybe if you left the beer out of the chrono session you would be able to see the errors...
Maybe I'm just lucky, I don't know. The best thing you can do with the Ohler is to throw away all their mounting system, and build something better. Or buy the mounting system from Square Peg. That made a difference with Doug's for sure. But as I said doug and I saw a max of about 7fps difference and which one was right nobody knew. Nobody ever said the Ohler was bad (their mounts are junk), but just a little over priced for what the other guys can also do. I've never used a CED, but have heard nothing but good things about them. Still as I see it right now, I'll be using the Pact till I croak unless they decide to come out with one that uses an SD card
Just a further note: I never take beer to the range, but have been known to take a coolar with soda pop or bottled water. Alcohol is forbiden at the ranges I shoot at for saftey reasons alone.
