    Try to get one with a printer if possible.

    When shooting I write the load number on the
    printout for later evaluation and keep them
    in my reloading book.

    I have used them for years to evaluate new lot
    number powders aganst original powder charges.

    Ohler has stoped making the 35p or I would recomend
    it.

    Dont skimp buy a good one and you wont be sorry.

    I came across a ProChrono-anyone use these much? Doesn't have a printer, but can get the remote/printer seperate.

    Elkstalker300,

    You might want to hang on just a bit before you buy as the rumour is that a chrono mfg. that is existing is fixing to come out twith a chrono that is the equivalent to the no longer mfged Oehler 35 .
    Look around at the different shooting /loading sites and you may discover more , but for now thats all I know , sorry

    Does anyone have any further information on this new chronograph? I had a Pact Pro but it was stolen out of my truck in Dallas. It served me well but I thought I may try something different. Thanks, KP
