    I may well be at the point where a good Chrono is needed for the house.

    So, whats the best option? Need something that is available, reliable and consistant.

    Simon make sure gun is legal then blow your chrono up, the next time you need to chrono it is at a comp before you start. Please ensure you bang your head very hard on a wall every time you chrono your gun between previous mentioned.After banging your head very hard a couple of times your chronoitus will go away with no re-occuring syimptums.

    Skan

    Simon,

    I use a Skan Pro, I set the rifles up in a gun vice and use that. It seems to be the best thing Ive set guns up with???

    Quote - I may well be at the point where a good Chrono is needed for the house.

    House must be on one hell of steep hill if its slipping so quickly that you need a chono to check its speed!

    bought an F1 chrony from Nigel in Litts, seems ok, its best to set up a lighting box as you get consistent results that way!

    Do Combro still mark the back of each chrono with a number? They did when I bought mine.
    You can look it up on their website and use it to tweak your unit to make it even more accurate.

    Sceptical or not, over power on a comp course and it's more than likely you'll get disqualified (if tested) - alot of club insurance is for sub fac

    I'd like to see every comp have a working chrono lane

    Same here and when I find my serial lead I can record the shot strings as well.

    Club also has a PM1 chrono as well.

    Chrono lane

    Dave,

    I agree with yourself fella. Sadly people will run close to the limit as usual. Personally I run my rifles at 30 fps below the limit. I know it is safe that way..................

    Not sure whether these are still manufactured, if he's still around try Joe Young @Target Tronics. Tel.No. 01423 885574. Based in Harrogate,at least he was when I last sent my P.M. 100 for service.
