I was also ready to buy the superchrono. Makes me hesitate a little. Please let us know what you think Grey Fox when you do your comparison with the magnetospeed. Thanks Bruce

Re: Review - SuperCHRONO Accoustic Chronograph

Thanks for the review. I am also sick of using a chrono that is tempermental requiring perfect lighting conditions.

Only glitch with this product seems to be availability.

It WAS on e-bay and the UK outfit Shooting Shed are the only two mentioned.

Shooting shed:

Shooting SHED

Anyone know if any US distributors are selling it?

Shooting Shed - an 'old school's couple who value their shooting and their customers. Excellent service and he does machine some lovely bespoke shooting kit.

We tested all 3 at one of the Townsend Shoots, the 3rd being my Oehler 35. All 3 measuring the same bullets from 4 different rifles and calibers. I ordered a magneto speed after the test. The super has some benefits like the ability to be shot over at longer distances. But in the end I liked the Magneto speed better for my needs.

Re: Review - SuperCHRONO Accoustic Chronograph

Thanks for your review Jeff.

I finally found a source in the US called Rifles Only. I ordered one. I will be very interested in it if it performs as advertized. I'll put my CED inline with it to see how they compare.

I located this source for the SuperChrono Acoustic chronograph in Texas (Rifles Only) while researching a month or so ago. They're selling the unit for $350. I'd like to own one of these, but I'm waiting for further user reviews before doing so.

Folks seem to be falling in love with the Magnetospeed, which straps to the end of the barrel. See this Thread:

AZ,
You must have posted while I was typing my post... beat me to it.

Please report your experiences with your SuperChrono and the service from Rifles Only? I'd like to use this unit to obtain downrange velocity, however the 'user' reporting on this unit was quite sparse - based on the web-based research I conducted a month ago. Hoping yours performs well compared to your CED.

My research indicated the unit should be set up a minimum of 15 feet from the muzzle. I hope to use one from 300 to 1000 yds off the muzzle.
