Kurzzeit is probably the best chrongraph made for about $200 more than the Ohler. Better mounting system, better screens, faster electronics making it more accurate.

    Competition Electronics ProChrono Digital Chronograph


    the link above is fro the pro chrono. check out all the reviews. Midway USA. I bought one and it has worked flawlesslly. If i spelt that right. But I used it to set up my gun with a turret and it seem to be dead on. I would recommend this one to anyone. No frills but works great. Also I tested my turret out to 800 yrds and it was plus my volicity reading was less than 10fps apart on the chrono. Savage 6.5x284 140 berger H100V 49.5grns seated so they still fit in the mag. My 2 cents.

    Loving the magnetospeed as well. Seems to be really accurate. Made shots out to 1324 yards last weekend using the data straight from that rig. Messed with wind calls a little but elevation was spot on. It had to have been giving me some good measurements. It does shift my groups a bit with it on but only maybe a 1/2 MOA. Must better than going down range and setting up screens and then cursing when a cloud rolls in and suddenly your readings are off. It doesn't care what the weather is.

    My vote is for the Magneto Speed. I think my blood pressure has gone down since going to it. The others I own will be for sale.

    Yes, I've been looking ,too.

    I was going to get the CED2 from the LRH store.

    Then I seen the acoustic one, Supercrono I believe, and thought I liked it.It seemed like it did away with most of the problems with screens and error readings and such.Provided it was set up right.

    Now I'm kinda leaning towards the Magnetospeed.It does seem like a nobrainer that it would effect impact point.As I work up a load, I'm looking at group size as well as pressure indications.That would make the decision for this one difficult.

    Now if I went with the Oehler, wouldn't I have the same problems with error readings and no reads as any with skyscreens.

    All I know is I have been so very frustrated through the years with the four different brands I have used in the past hat this Magnetospeed is like the best present I have bought in a long time. It is super fast to attach, very compact and has not missed a beat yet. I mainly use it for getting the best ES on loads and if it changes the impact at all it really does not matter for me.
