I had to laugh at that one.

Get an Oehler 35P and you will use that bullet to guard it with.

I had givin it a good review on someones post boy I need to retract that post !(I can't remeber the thread) The issue with my beta chrony was exactly what I posted it LIES!!!! Why spend $ on kestrel $ on a PC $ on NF balli. and have a chrony tell you lies ?? Then have all of the other equipment fail ? braggin rights is all the chrony is good for in my opinion. or highdollar target practice

JE laughter is good medicine

Do you know what the comp shooters are using ?
can you make first round hits with MV measured by the Oehler 35P if so I may decide to stop using chronies for target practice (It was an accident) but it sure felt good

Most of the competition shooters use an Oehler of one model or the other because of
there dependability and accuracy. To me the main difference is the proof channel(3 Ski
screens) .The proof channel compares the velocity between two sets of screens and
if if there is to much difference between the two it tells you with an error message
and you have the choice to delete or keep that shot. (Its like having two chronographs).

There are lab models that have strain gauges that measure chamber pressure in
addition to velocities,SDs,ESs,Highest velocity, Lowest velocity and average.

I have the Oehler 35 P (Printer) and It has never lied or let me down.

I may be miss quoting this but I was told that it samples 4 million times a second
and a bullet that travels 3000ft/sec gets measured every .016 thousandths of an inch
of bullet flight. If I am wrong someone please feel free to correct me.

Plus it does all of the math when you sum and prints it out for later study. I rite the cartrige
and the load number on this printout and years I can look at actual velocities of that load
to compare with a new batch of the same powder and the same load.

The chronagraph is not a toy or just a gadget It will save lots of money and time and
if it is a good one it will be invaluable if you use it for all of its uses and information.

I would not be without one (In fact I have two in case one starts acting up And starts giving
me lots of errors I can use the other one while it is being fixed ) At no charge by Oehler.

Just my opinion.

Re: Which electronics do you use

Thanks JE,
I guess I am stuck for a while anyway. Already opened the box.
I'll see how things pan out for a bit.
I have been a shooter for a long time but now I am trying to be something more.
Not competitive, just better!
I am a hunter first so making a good humane shot is my primary reason for spending more time at the range plus my son goes with me and he will hopefully come away with life lessons...you just never know though.
I have been shooting the Nikon BDC scopes on most of my and my sons big game rifles so knowing our load better will make us more accurate shooters. Now that we have discovered the Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology using the circles on our scopes will be a snap.
Again, Thanks for all the info on Chrono., I guess they are like anything, you can alawys find someone who likes one brand over another, Maybe I should have inquired a tad more,lesson learned for me.
