  1. I made the move to the G2 and its proving to be the best chrono I've had yet. The phone app is awesome. Bluetooth works reliably. The whole unit is easy to setup and use. Its awesome. Let us know how it goes for you. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  2. I mounted mine in back per Karl's suggestion and it's nice, I just can't see it and I have to give the reach-around to access the control. But I'm having a problem with it dropping like 3-5 bullets at a time. Karl recommended rigging up a return spring. Anyone run into this issue?
  3. Im looking at them on my phone so its not clear, but are all those primers pierced? Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  4. Interesting, I am not finding that to be an issue. But sounds like you found what works for you and that's awesome. Took me many chronos to figure out what works for me and all the different things I do. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  5. Oh there's a few things. I had to use a different chrono for my speedier (4000+ fps) rifle loads as the Labradar has a velocity cap of 3900fps. My 223 varmint rounds are coming in at around 3850fps but I have faster stuff. For archery I'd have to buy another Labradar product which is a microphone attachment and then be tethered to the chrono...that's not appealing at all. I also shoot clays a lot and I reload 12ga and 410. Unfortunately Labradar can only track slugs and not shot. I needed to use a different chrono for indoors because no matter how much I played with it, it was always unpredictable indoors. At first I thought it was excessive blast that would make it freak out as a 9mm open gun would make it error prone and spontaneously shut off...but then it would track my 50ae loads flawlessly. Trouble with 170pf but awesome with the concussion and fire of 435pf haha. I tried and tried for a few years to like it and make it work for me. Many calls to them and try this and try that. Mine was an early one from Feb 2016, but was told that made no difference. I updated the firmware whenever there was a release. But after having to use other chronos so much I accepted that it had to go.
  6. Check out the G2. It's optical but isn't dependent on ambient lighting. Use it indoors, out doors, in darkness, doesn't matter. No need to buy the indoor lighting kit or IR set ups. Here's how it runs. Think of a normal diffuser run chrono and rotate it upside down. Now the diffusers are on the bottom right? The diffusers have a row of led lights so the unit runs off its own supplied light source. No cables to deal with all self contained. Even comes with a bag that includes a tripod, it's a little wonky but once its set its doesn't move. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  7. I like the Ramshot Competition. I have great success with it for 38spl and 38 short colt. It also charges my production loads, 40 major & minor, 45acp, 12ga for clay shootin and more. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  8. I sold my Labradar, got the Caldwell G2, pocketed $300 and gained the versatility of only needing one chrono. The G2 is awesome. The Labradar still had me needing a second or third chrono. G2 measures everything I need. Its optical but has no cables, no indoor lighting extra purchase, no microphone to be hooked up to, no speed limitation, no indoor limitation, no limitation on what it can track or the types of object to be attached to. I had a labbradar and magnetospeed and that was a real crappy combo for me to have. I experienced all those cons and was still searching for a third chrono. Found the G2, does it all and now can forget all those cons and own a single chrono. My vote goes for G2. Oh and the Bluetooth is reliable and stable and the app is a million times better than the labradar app. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  9. ...so you caved and got one? Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  10. Becareful looks like your ammo bag is a gateway to the Bronieville. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  11. I just use a 50cal ammo can. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  12. Actually STI did try making a SAA clone and it was a huge fail. It was gorgeous though, 45 Colt case hardened by Turnbull. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  13. They're fantastic, the bee's knees
  14. Blue Bullets work really well for me. I really like them and am on my second case of them for 40cal. I have decided to switch for all my blaster cartridges and picked up cases of 9mm and 45cal. I like them that much...as if that means anything haaha. But they perform very well and the price is fantastic. The discounts help too. I've noticed that they fly a bit faster than the BBI and Xtremes that I was using before and can drop my powder charge by a tenth. My data is very similar to yours. I run 4.1gr Competition loaded to 1.2" out of a 5.4" barrel and it clocks in 169pf.
  15. I heard the same shipping rationale with the additional explanation that when the regulation came out that primers had to be individually isolated the idea of the sideways orientation is safer as the tops and bottoms are protected. Got to admit it is pretty dang solid packaging. I do have old primers where the pack of 100 is about the size of a match box and they're all just packed in there. It is wasteful, I say change it and lower the prices of the primers...like that's ever going to happen haaha. They'll use the whole material pricing increase is forcing sales price increase line heh.
