Re: CED M2 Chronograph Review By Bryan Chatwell

One item on the CED M2 with IR option & battery. Make sure the battery for the IR screens is fully charged before going to the range. As the battery gets tired one screen will get tired first and go off line. I had over 5500 groups of 100 rounds (max of memory) because the the computer went into run away. Once I charged for 8 hours (max charge) all was wonderful again. Their Tech support is fast and very helpful.

Re: CED M2 Chronograph Review By Bryan Chatwell

Very good info here on the CED. I have the older model CED and I had some problems today at the range. My unit would not register my 223 shots. I am thinking the screens where too close about 7 feet away. I the let a guy next to me fire his 243 pistol through it and it registered fine. I think my problem is muzzle blast for the most part so I will try again next week. I had not used my CED for at least six years.but I found my old records with 223 shot readings. Just can not remember my setup.

No such problems with the old Oehler Model 33. I'm still using one and its very reliable and consistent.

Yes, back it off to the limit of the cables.

Thanks Len for your reply. One other question do you think the inferred kit will work with the first generation CED M1?

Re: CED M2 Chronograph Review By Bryan Chatwell

I took my M2 to the range today. I have the IR kit and I believe the battery was fully charged. The first few shots I had it too close and noticed some shaking in the screens and no readings. I moved it out and we got good readings with a 30/06 and a 270 WSM, no brakes on either rifle. I then switched to a 300 RUM with a brake and started getting error 1 or 0 all the time. I reseated all the connections and no luck I then went back to the rifles with no brake and it still would not read. I ended up driving an hour each way to get 10 shots through and wasted another 20 trying to get it to read. I can't get one screen to consistantly fail and it didn't seem to be a cable problem.

Very frustrated, this thing worked on a few outings but certainly not enough use for it to break down!

Went to the range today with my CED M1 and a new IR screen set with the battery pack. All problems solved. Every shot was read and it was very cloudy. Read the .223 40gr. bt very well.
