Re: .338 rum reloads
Find someone with an Oehler 35 and compare the difference in speed, you'll find your Crony brand crony will be the obvious next target to shoot at. I learned the hard way too. I had two of their models and they were always at odds with each other and the manuals too, by ALOT not just a little either. Very frustrating to say the least!!
I still remember the guy that first rented the one Crony (Alpha) I traded to the local shooting range for the Oehler 35p I now have. He rented it imeediatly after the trade and sat down next to my brother and I at the 300yd range as we were setting up the Oehler for the first time getting ready to shoot. We looked over just as he fired his first shot from his 7mm RUM, he had the crony ON the bench at the muzzle and it blew the damn thing about ten feet off the bench in front of him. We laughed our asses off over that for awhile. The guy that runs the range was right it would be wasted the first day out anyway. The only reason the Oehler was in great shape was that nobody knew how to setup and use it, so it never got rented. They're good for letting the local yocal know that his bullets are moving but beyond that they don't have much value for me. I think they waste a lot of peoples time and money, and is downright criminal. FWIW
