I use a PACT PC2, and couldn't ask for more. Extremely accurate and extremely reliable

Not trying to be qute but I want to ask. I am in the market for an "accurate" chronograph. How does one tell it is accurate? Do you have a way of testing them to be sure the given velocity is correct?

Thanks!

Jeff

Bros,

I know this has been hashed over and over on this forum. As serious as you are with your shooting, you really need to buy the Oehler! With the proof channel you get two readings. I do not think there is anything more accurate than having one of these for the average guy anyway.

I would be willing to bet that if you get an Oehler, you would like it about as much as your rangefinder and Bergers . Ok, maybe not that much but you know what I mean.

a buddy of mine has one, and we often had both chronographs setup side by side. The difference was virtually nil. (usually about 5 or 6 fps at 3500fps) If one threw out a round the other did as well. Which one was right with the 5 or 6 fps difference? One wouldn't know. The real hassel with the Ohler is in the setup. Their mounting system sucks on a good day, but there is a solution for that. You can buy the Square Peg mounting system, and be setup in ten minutes like the Pact. Of course it'll set you back about $300. I got tired of constantly waiting on Doug to get everything lined up, and talked him into a better setup. I built it for about $75, and it works a hundred times better than the factory mount. I used the optional factory light bar that Pact sells ($25), and carried two torpedo levels in my bag.

Re: Oehler 35 $$$$$

Thanks Gary. I have two shooting chrony's and shoot with them in line too. Problem is they are 25 to 40 fps different. So I bought a Pact about a year ago and messed with it for a day and it never read one shot out of about 30 rounds. I sent it back. So, I plan to buy an Oehler, and I appreciate you letting me know about the set up.

Thanks
Jeff
