Chronograph

Any opinions on a decent priced well functioning unit? Never used one.

Re: Chronograph

Shooting Croney or Competition Electronics ProChrono. Both will get you by and both can be had for around a 100 bucks.

Re: Chronograph

I use a Shooting chrony also. I couldn't justify spending more on a higher tech unit with the chance I might accidentally shoot it. I would rather be out 100 bucks then 3 or 4. It works fine for everything I use it for.

Re: Chronograph

If I had it to do over I'd buy a Chrony without hesitation. I got both my Oehler 35P and Pact (gift) when the inexpensive ones out there today weren't around...

the design of mine make it very easy to simultaneously shoot groups as well as check velocities ...

Re: Chronograph

Using a Chrony is as easy as unfolding it and then shooting over it.
I have a friend that has an expensive Oehler unit. He saw me using my Chrony and went right out and bought one.

Re: Chronograph

I have a Shooting Chrony too. No complaints. First time I shot a big boy rifle over it, I had it too close to the muzzle. I didn't shoot it, per se, but the muzzle blast shattered the screen and blew it off the bench. Still works fine over 10 years later.

Re: Chronograph

Reviews are better for Competition Electronics than the Shooting Chrony.Any reasons or opinions?Has anyone used both?I Guess I should say why I want one but I'm sure most know.I want accurate (as possible) bullet drop tables.I don't have the money to experiment but can afford to buy the right one, one time.All of them seem sensitive to lighting.Is CED a better unit?
