This has probably been asked before, but I thought I would ask again. Which Chronograph have you had good luck with?
Anyone using a Magnetospeed?


I have a Shooting Chrony F-1 and I have messed with it a number of times and I do not trust it. I get errors, and when I get readings, they are so erratic and variable that I don't trust them.

I've used the Oehler 35P for several years now. No complaints and gives me a TON of info.

Saving up for a LabRadar. Have used a friends and it was very accurate and is not affected by the elements as much as a standard Chrono with sunscreens etc. Have also heard good things about the Magnetospeed V3 but not such good things about the sporter model.

My 2 Cents

I too have an Oehler 35P, but I want to get something that is more compact and easy to transport and set up.

Have the CHRONY and it works nearly perfect and tells me what i want to know.....the speed.

How far away you shoot over it? Needs to be about 15? from the muzzle to get good readings.

Been using an Oehler 35P for over 30 years. Replaced old screens with newer/improved version. Works like a charm even if it does take a bit to set-up.

My chrony is handy as a pocket on a shirt and fairly easy to setup But that lab radar is appealing if you want to check what is going on down range. Also it is handy and quick. My children bought me my chrony as a gift and so no complaints.
