So, I plan to buy an Oehler, and I appreciate you letting me know about the set up.
If I were to but a new chronograph today, it would be a Pact without hesitation. The second one might be a CED, but honestly the Ohler would be number three at the highest. Their mounting system leads to nothing but problems, and I'm not in the mood to hunt up a bunch of extruded aluminum again to fix it. The screens must be strait and in line with each other to produce accurate readings, and unless you can leave the whole unit assembled all the time you have work to do. Electricley, it's an excellent piece of equipment, but it looks like they went down to some construction site and picked thru the dumpster for the mount. Accuracey wise there is no difference to speak of between the Pact and the Ohler, and I found that if one tossed out a shot the other did as well. One fellow shooter on this board ran some extensive tests (he's got a lot of hours involved in his tests), and found exactly one foot per second difference between the two (I found five to six). I can't see $100+ dollars difference between the two brands
