I researched the Kurzzeit online. That's a pricy unit. It should be good if cost is any indication.

I was most interested in the acoustical chronograph due to the large detection area above the unit for recording down range velocity. I'm not reading much about that model, so I don't know if it's working well or not. I'm going to wait until I hear some positive reviews before purchasing.

Here's a pic of the FEENIX model chronograph. It's compact, not susceptible to lighting variations - I mean it flat out works in the daylight or complete darkness, doesn't require electrical power, and most importantly, it's about the cheapest unit available. It's been reported that operators with quicker reaction times record faster bullet velocity. This one was made in Switzerland. I've not used it yet, but it's officially endorsed by Marshal FEENIX. And he claims that anybody that spends money on a more expensive unit is simply a elitist snob. Here the pic. Seems fool-proof.

Re: Which shooting chronograph do you use?

What I liked about the Kurzziet (hope I spelled it right) is the way it sets up, and the fact that it uses four cells facing each other. What I don't like is the rather small hole you shoot thru. The system seems to be made very rigid, and should move very little under a hard muzzel blast. Plus the setup time should be fairly quick if shooting on a public range. You are right about the price being stiff, but if you opt for the Square Peg mount on the Ohler you've spent that $200 (it does make a difference). I'd have to say these are the class of the field right now. Yet there is one more looming out there that many think might be even better (can't remember who makes it).

I just got my ancient Pact up and going again last week after managing to screw up the camera tripod. Now I have no less than three tripods that will work (found them at Goodwill believe it or not!)

I don't use any of the ones listed. I use the Magneto Speed chrono and it works great. Quick to setup and take down when useing multiple rifles at the range. One doesn't have to worry about light conditions and muzzle blast.

Been using a Magneto Speed too. It runs a few FPS faster than my Oehler 35 but is consistent with several rifles tested with both. The magneto speed is definitely growing on me. I just subtract 10 fps and load up the ballistic app and I am on.

Re: Which shooting chronograph do you use?

I am thinking of picking up a magnetospeed, the V2 model, after seeing the great results at Townsend. Jeff, will you have the magnetospeed and/or your oehler at the August shoot? If you do i got a new load for my 284 win that i want to shoot over and see what kinda numbers i get and compare to my prochrono.

Riley, I should have my new V2 by then. I will bring it along if I have it.
