    Oehler is making the 35p and it is considered the benchmark that all chronographs are
    measured by and there service is second to none.

    I know that is a lot of money but you get what you pay for when you buy electronics.

    There are cheaper ones and they work well most of the time but they don't seem to
    last very long.

    Most will run $250.oo+ and you can expect 3 to 5 years of use from most and then
    you will have to replace it.

    I have an old 35p Oehler that is 20+ years old and it is still accurate (Same load, Same
    velocity) and back when I bought it it seamed like a lot of money ($230.oo) but some
    of my friends have gone through 3 or 4 of the cheaper models and are allways asking
    to verify there velocities on my chronograph.

    It is a lot like the scopes , the cheaper scopes have to be replaced several times in the
    life of most rifles but the better ones don't and end up being the cheepest in the long
    run.

    This is a wonderful tool and will save you lots of time,money,barrels and bad hunting
    experances.

    If you are /want to get into long range shooting/hunting it is almost a must.

    Shoot a 22LR through it. Those are pretty consistent.......

    I've found, with the less expensive units, that actual velocity may be off a bit but shot to shot variations are fairly decent.

    Ha, have not seen it IF it is there for less money and I have had several.

    Buy the 35P and you will never regret it. No second guessing.
