Chrono

I have two, the F-1 and the Pro-Chrono. The PC is by far a much better chrono. The F-1 gives errors a good bit and gives off the charts readings at times.

The PCs can be had cheap on ebay from time to time.

Good Luck

If you want an accurate chrono without buying an Oehler 35, I would look at the CED M2. It's a great chrono and will do all you ask of it.

Another vote for the CED Millinium, it is the best available today, since the Oehler's aren't in production anymore..

Another one for CED. I have heard of one guy using it with an Ohler and the readings were consistent between the two.

Just to Pile on...After using a handful of different Chronos and owning two (PACT and CED) the CED is the hands down winner. The readings are consistent through a wide range of light conditions.

I bought the IR kit for mine at the same time that I bought the Chrono and have only used it to make sure it works. This unit is less light sensitive than any of the others I have tried.

The next thing on tap for mine is to fashion some plexiglass shields for the sensors so I don't kill them with sabots from a muzzelloader or Gas Checks from lead bullets.
