Re: Oehler Model 43
Thanks Ian, but I already bought the thing. I got jumpy, couldn't wait no longer. It came with the three accoustic sensors, what looks like a box to plug them and the phone line into down range, the main box to plug the laptop and everything into. There are two large reels of telephone wire, a toolbox with solder iron, wire strippers, crimper for telephone connectors, glues, sandpaper, 2 boxes of strain gages, a bag of premade telephone wire leads.
There is no stands or anything to hold the accoustic microphones or skyscreens though. I have two floppy disks with the software, one is version 1.07, the other is a version 1.09 update disk. I have the manual which is 50 pages total. I also have a manual for the Oehler Ballistic Explorer program which is about 70 pages total, but don't have the disk unless the 43 software comes with it on the same disk.
I have data for many cartridges up to 600 NE and alot for what appeared to be a favorite, the 30/378. The original owner was killed in a car crash a couple years back, his name was Dana Campbell, he owned Mountain rifles Inc. Any way I ended up with quite a bit of his equipment and data for what seems to be a good price.
I might need some help figuring this thing out, I'm not much with computers and the skyscreens and accoustic target setup without specs and pictures could be a challenge, I'm guessing the spacing is dowright critical to accurate velocities and BC figures. I have to finish reading the manual first. Definitly not as quick to set up as the 35P would have been, but I always wanted one of these 43's.
