    Picked up a Chronograph this past weekend. Decided that since I plan on reloading and thought this might be a nice addition to the range bag for testing new loads.

    Good Job!!! You can read all the books, but that little item will tell you what your loads are really doing. Just don't shoot it.

    Yeah I didn't think you were supposed to aim at the rods, kind of tells you that in the instructions.

    Yes, shooting it would be bad, they don't work so much after doing that. A friend of mine had one and who knows what happened to his after he passed away, so I bought one and figured when I start reloading this Chronograph will get tons of use.

    Looks like Mine! I love the one I have. It surprised me how much "factory" ammo differed round to round in fps. If you start getting crazy readings, ( like way low or high) put a piece of cardboard over the top bows. It seems the photo eyes don't like the bright Texas sunlight. MG

    I was firing airsoft pellets through it the other day for fun cause I can fire it in the yard and not have to go to the range, but it seemed pretty accurate.

    Thanks for the cardboard tip, probably would never have thought of doing that.

    We were shooting out in the driveway and it was 100+ out that day. Not sure if the reflection off the ground was causing a problem but we started having .357 rounds coming up at 600fps... same recoil as the others that were much higher. We didn't have any place in the shade to put the chrony, so we put a piece of cardboard over the top of both bows. Worked perfect after that. MG
