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
This is a wonderful tool and will save you lots of time,money,barrels and bad hunting
If you are /want to get into long range shooting/hunting it is almost a must.
