Pact 1 vs. CED Millenium???

I've read a bunch of posts, and can't decide. There are some cheap pacts on ebay, but I almost ordered a CED Millenium with IR screens...just can't decide.

I would like the Ohler 35, but can't justifying spending the money on those.

your input would be appreciated....so either pact vs, CED with IR screen...?

thanks

I've got the CED and have been happy. I haven't had a bit of trouble w/it. The IR screens will ensure that it never lets you down.

Re: Chrony

I have Chrony F1 master. WHats the kind of acceptable variation between loads? I load 25-06 for hunting and can get variances of 50-100 fps across shots. I weigh each powder charge , trim cases, do primer pockets and flash holes. I don't wiegh bullets, just use Nosler Ballistic tips and match primers.I get 3000, 3050, 3100 sort of fps readings across my ammo. IS this ok?

Re: Chrony

kb,i have a chrony too.i had the same problem you have.i was setting the unit too close to the gun's muzzle.i now set it about 10 feet out.made a big difference in velocity spread. jason [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Chrony

I have a crony as well. Has beeen working for me ok for 3 years. Does all I need it to do, show me velocities. My crony seems to work just fine. Set it out 8-10 feet, according to how big of a gun your shooting that day, and make sure your shooting in good light conditions. My crony showed me 2962, 2962, 2964, and 2668 for 4 shots with my dads 7 mag the other day. My 222 has a maximum spread of 10 fps, the good loads out of my 25-06 show me 15 for a maximum deviation. I dont know about most, but my crony has worked for me over the years. I'm happy with it considering I paid $70 for it. You just need to find the real sweet spot to see your deviations go down, or try different powders, sometimes that makes all the difference in the world as well. example being, in my 270 I was using imr-4350 for most my loads at first, but found my deviation was as much as 80fps. I then switched to h4831sc and my deviation was down to 25fps. You can have an accurate load with 50-75 fps, but it will not be as accurate at long range. Usually, low deviation loads are the ones you want to look for in long range shooting.

Re: Chrony

thanks for the replys, sounds like rem 06 might have the only working chrony out there [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], saying that not from personal experiance but from stuff I've read. I'm not considering the chrony in my choice only because of all the neg feedback I've heard.

All I keep hearing is suck it up and buy the oehler 35, and I can say it's starting to stick in my head. I still like the idea of the CED with the IR....

thanks
