Len you could certainly help break us up with a new single shot rifle board (like Ruger #1's and 1885's).

By the way for all you weaklings, I'm going fishing in the rain and with temps that are about 38 degrees.

Did so, poor soul. Let me know if you need a lift off the low chair. Upwards that is.

Re: Cronograph's ??

I hate to interrupt the lively conversation here but I've been wondering if anyone has tried running one of the new magnetospeeds along with an oehler 35p? I have a 35p currently and I love it, but it's a PITA to set up and get right and when the wind is blowing the printer paper tends to get blown all over the place. I've been thinking about getting one of the magneto chronos and using it in conjuntion with the 35p. I know that the fps will be different, but the ES and SD should be the same. I think it would be interesting to see how close they were regarding these measurements. I've heard nothing but good things about the magnetos and I think if I eventually felt comfortable that the magnetospeed was accurate I would consider selling the 35p. Has anyone out there tried this?

No thanks, unlike you, I don't have very far to fall.

Velocity and BC is that all the info you need to come up with the figures...........I dont know. However it would be nice to know what my loads are doing..........Anyone live in Reno, Nevada, or close to it...........that owns a cronograph?

I live in Dayton and work in Carson. I have a Magnetospeed that you could use.
