Chrony

Does anybody have a chronograph they would be willing to let me borrow for a week or so? I would be willing to pay all the shipping cost, plus a small fee if needed!

Thanks,
Adam

Re: Chrony

you know they only cost about 100$ on brownells right? even cheeper used on ebay. Seams to me you not going to find some one to let you barrow their unit as its not worth the cost to ship it or the hassle.

Re: Chrony

Yes I am aware of the price. I fugure shipping both ways should only cost 30-40 bucks. So why not try to save up to 70 dollars if I can? Guess im just cheap!

Re: Chrony

Using a chrony once will only give you what happened on that day. If you just want velocity for factory ammo, it should be cheaper to find someone locally that would set theirs' up for you and show you how to use it. If you are handloading, one time will not really do you any good, as you will have it available for only that one day. If you are just going to make up one load and be satisfied with whatever it gives you, one of the locals is still your best bet.
I am trying to envision a scenario where a one-time use would be beneficial enough to justify $30-40 expense, but it's not coming to me. It can be very enlightening to use a chrony for working up a load, but that doesn't sound like that is what you are doing.

Re: Chrony

Thanks for all of your input Jeff. I have already found a good load as far as grouping goes, now i just need to find out my velocity, es and sd. Seems that I wont have much luck trying to borrow one. I guess ill take everyones advice and scrounge up some money and invest it one.

Thanks,
Adam

Re: Chrony

Check with your local gun club. Odds are someone has one. I saw a member using one a couple of days ago, and I know others own them too.
