  1. Yup, they worked great. One time a local shop had some and I asked for them. Then the manager asked what I was going to load. So I answered 40sw...he stared at me and then said, I'm not selling these to you, you're going to hurt yourself. You can't use a magnum primer in a 40....oh wells so far for that plan haaha Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  2. I bet match and magnum primers are still around. Those two words seem to scare off the panic buyers. During the Obama years magnums were still around when everything dried up. They worked great and were easier to get. Also factory 40sw was the only ammo on the shelves haaha.
  3. I remember seeing a thread about the frame cut here a coupla years ago. Search for it. It had pictures of the cut. The mod consists of two very small chamfers inside the frame. I did it to one of mine and it worked out great.
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. ...so you caved and got one? Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
  13. Becareful looks like your ammo bag is a gateway to the Bronieville. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Tapatalk
