I use the model just below and get along just fine. They aren't perfect but are a decent tool.

I'd get the model you mention but the name gets on my nerves.

Price wise you are so close to get one awesome chronograph which is the CED M2. If you read the manual and use a solid platform like a good tripod you'll be happy you got it. That's what I "would" do. I got mine for $195.99 but they usually run $199.99.

I believe they're worth much more than that. I've had two of the former generation and the newest M2; 3 all together. I would buy another one just to have them in tandem if I could afford it. For now, one is enough!

Did I mention to read the manual? Many folks get in trouble and blame it on the chronograph just out of laziness...

That is the one I have, it works for me.

Nothing against any of the chronys mentioned, heard lots of good reviews from others on them. It may be way more than you want to spend but, didn't know if your aware of the Oehler 35p. There making a limited run of them with deliveries set for around the end of August. Lots of good reviews on them as well.

Re: Shooting Chrony's Beta Master

Yea chase that one is abit more than I was looking for
Im noteven sure I need one
Sometimes I really would like the data from one but Im not convinced I would use one enough to justify the cost.
Im on the fence

Re: Shooting Chrony's Beta Master

Sounds like maybe you just need to use one just once in a while...any shooting buddies near you that wouldn't mind loaning you theirs from time to time? Heck if we were closer I'd loan you mine once in a while.

Either way it doesn't sound like you need to spend alot of $ when there are less expensive ones that folks seem pretty happy with and will probably serve you well. Let us know which one you choose and how it works for you.
