Concerning chronographs

Is there anything that makes the Ohler 35p worth the extra money over the Pact Professional? I just want to accurately measure bullet speed. Are any less likely to be effected by sunlight and therefore more convenient?

Re: Concerning chronographs

Frank,

I'm a contrarian here, I like the CED Millenium. I bought it over the Oehler to replace my PACT1, which sucked. Dillon sells the CED, and they don't sell junk because they have a great return/service policy. The CED can be fitted with an infrared system (I do not have this add on so I cannot speak to it's functionality) that works in total darkness or any low light situation. As a "regular" chronograph, I love it. Low batt. indicator, nice big screen, very sturdy screen setup, large display, separate buttons for all functions, can download to PC with included cable, etc. etc. etc.

I bought mine from a great guy named Jim Ristow at www.shootingsoftware.com/chronographs.htm

Check out his bench tips. Very interesting stuff.

Roger
