Oehler 35 P
Probably ought to entitle this " first impression "
It seems that many things are the same no matter how old we get . The days immediately following christmas for example.........boys playing with their toys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
I had decided to hold of on buying a 35P even though they were about to go the way of the wooly mammoth. Reason being was I could'nt buy the things I wanted to give to my family for Christs birthday celebration. Also in my twisted mind that was just an incentive to start plotting and planning on a Oehler 43 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Well , I have a 35P anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. A friend of mine had heard me speak of the impending demise of the 35 and a coupla of days or so before Christmas he showed up at my house . " here , I know you've been wanting one of these " he said as he handed me the case that held the works plus some extras .
I haven't had time to do much other than familiarize myself with it and read alll ! the destructions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Upon doing so I found that Dr. Oehler had placed a number to call in the very end orf the instructions that when I called it I was awarded a certificate for $200.00 toward the purchase of a 43 !!!!!
Just kidding [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] They do , however place emphasis on reading the entire booklet . I found it to be well written , a refreshing thing in these days on " instruction manuals " that are obviously written by someone with only a rudimentary grasp of the language .

Yes , it worked , shot some weighed .22 rimfire bullets through it and compared them to a handful of unweighed ones , Eyeopening for sure .
I have an ancient Chrony so I will be looking at the results I recorded with it on current handloads in comparison readings with the 35p , as well as reporting on the performance .
