Re: CED M2 Chronograph Review By Bryan Chatwell

I don't use a tripod. I ordered the flat metal stand just to make sure it is as steady as possible. I've also ordered the infared kit.

    A. The CED M2 Chronograph is designed to prevent error readings due to muzzle blast reaching
    the front sensor before the bullet does. When this occurs, the display will not present a reading!
    Therefore, it say “0000” only. In the case of large caliber rifles, you must position the end of the
    barrel a minimum of 7 to 10 feet behind the first sensor. This will prevent the muzzle blast from
    creating any problems. In the case of large caliber rifles, you can position yourself even further
    away or design a blast shield. REMEMBER, to always mount the first sensor onto the arm, which
    contains the tripod screw hole. This will eliminate any possibility of the “mounting bracket”
    shifting upward from heavy muzzle blasts

    Went to the range today and took my Millennium II w/ the infrared. Worked flawlessly...even in intermittent rain. I move it to within approx. 7 feet and thought the blast would ruint to the reading, but it kept going with only a few error messages. I moved it that close to get it out of the rain,,,So far so good....one of those days when everything actually works....except me. I was very rusty and need to get out more to keep skills sharp.....I am becoming a fan of the CED
    30-338........Oh yeah. I like that idea of a flat plate rather than tripod...they are kinda flimsy. Watched mine sway in the wind today, but even when the wind mis-aligned the unit I still got good readings

    It should work exactly the same, one thing I noticed was when I put the IR on, I set the machine up backwards, so the start and stop was backwards and of course it won't work if you do that. Other than that, it worked like a champ.

    I put a piece of black electrical tape around one of the reciviers and its wire to remind me that it is the START reciver.

    I bought the battery pack, and use the infared all the time now.
