chronograph suggestions??

I'm pretty new to the long range shooting and just started reloading and now I'm interested in a chronograph. Any suggestions ?? An affordable one would be preferred. And howcan I use it to develope better loads. I've also read some threads wher people were sceptical about chronys and they used other tests other than chronys to develope accurate loads. I'd like to hear some of those ideas as well. Thanks for any input!!

Re: chronograph suggestions??

Chrony's are getting up there in price, depending on what model you get, but in all reality, you'll be saving money if you just get THIS ONE

Re: chronograph suggestions??

Chrony's are a great tool and I always use one when shooting if possible. That being said, most chrony's on the market are not precision instruments. One will vary from another. I haven't used a CED M2 yet, but it's next on my list.

In another thread, I said I wouldn't use ES's generated by a chrony to select or reject a load and that's the way I feel for the most part. I prefer a good sampling of data on a particular load combined with actual groups sizes at ranges of 300 yds and more to make a load choice.

A chrony can give me good ball park info and take a lot of guess work out but actuall shooting tells me the overall performance and decides what velocity and BC to use for drops.

Welcome to LRH and good shooting,

Mark

Re: chronograph suggestions??

+1 on the CED Chrono. I have both the first and second models of the CED. when set up in tamdem and fired through they agree within 5fps. I really like the RSI shooting lab program that comes with the Chroongraph. The exterior ballistics agree with the PM ballistics program by Bryan Litz, JBM, and the Iphone program Ballistics FTE. The RSI program has other applications built into it that are very useful, Ext. ballistics, interior ballistics, firearm logs, load records, targets,and cartridge info.

I've done quite a bit of research and I'll be getting the CED M2 for Christmas.

If I didn't have one (CED M2), I would also be getting me the same thing!
