Re: Chrony

Shot over 25 shots over my CED today and it never missed a beat. This was all w/out the infrared.

Re: Chrony

have you ever compared it to a 35? i guess one of the main things I'm worried about is the accuracy of the readings. Say actual velocity was 2500, and the 35 read 2500, 2505, 2495 on 3 shots, and the ced read 2450, 2455, 2450. The ced will tell me the SD's and so on, but would not be able to base drop charts off of it..

I guess what I'm saying is that I want to able to trust my chrono, and not second guess it. Believe me, I would rather buy a CED than an Oehler if they are indeed an accurate chrono.

How does your ced corrispond with your drop charts, or do you jsut shoot at all distances?

thanks, jon

Re: Chrony

Never set it up side by side w/an Oehler but can tell you that I have chronographed the same load out of the same gun on both an Oehler 35 and the CED. Of course the condidtions were different but I there was about 10-15 fps difference in the two averages w/the CED being faster.

As far as shooting @ all distances, yes I do. I just look @ the chrono and computer program as a way to get close. Then I tweak the program to match my actual drops as closely as possible.

While ballistics programs are a great tool, it is important to remember that they are just that. I guarantee if you hand a guy a rifle, some shells, a palm, a chrono and a BC of the bullet he won't get a one shot hit on a 10" cirle @ 1000 yds and the brand of chrono won't make one bit of difference. Unless, of course, he's as lucky as Lerch [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!!

With all that said, the CED as gotten me very close when shooting blind. I've had to tweak it some but no more than you would w/any other chrono, IMO. I'm not telling the Oehler is not a fine machine, it is. In fact, it's probably the best. I'm just telling you I'm happy w/my CED [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img].

Re: Pact 1 vs. CED Millenium???

My wife bought me Beta Chrony for my birthday a few years back and I wasn't happy with it. Sold it and bought me a Pact Professional. Been using it for 3 years and work like a charm.
