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.

Well Gary as you should know errors can be caused by many things with any unit. From a fly to muzzle vibration to wind on the screens as well as ones we cant explain. I find it nice to get two readings to compare on the same bullet. Now my Pact you are so fond of never read a single bullet in a whole wasted afternoon of screwing with a chrono instead of tuning my ES. It went back and I ordered a Oehler. 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.

I like it well enough that I now sell it in the LRH Store.
Yes but why?

If no dealer pricing on the Oehler, not much choice in which one you would sell!

I will take the Oehler hands down over anything else and yes I have shot over the CED.

Re: chronny recommendation

AKKILL,

I am with the others who recommend the CED M2 or the 35p. I don't have any experience with the 35p as I hear it's top of the line but I do have a CED M2 and like it. I only have used it for one whole day, but I like it so far and it is reasonably priced. So the CED M2 is very good as others have said.
