muncie21 Posted January 15, 2017 Share Posted January 15, 2017 I started reloading recently and found myself wanting to collect objective data on my reloads, beyond 'ok they function' and 'feels kinda soft, snappy, etc.'. So I started looking around at entry level (ready cheap) chronographs. I found the Caldwell Premium Kit on Amazon for less than $100 (it has since gone up to $125'ish in 2 days since I ordered mine...sheesh) and promptly ordered it. The premium kit comes with: Chrono Carry bag/case Tripod (pretty cheap/flimsy, but wasn't expecting much) Serial cable LED light kit Sun shades AC cable & battery case for the light kit Directions and setup was super easy. Mounted it on the tripod and was collecting data in less than 5 minutes. Best part about this gizmo is being able to connect the chrono to a smart phone or tablet (I used an Apple 5S phone) to store your data. The app tracks the velocity of each shot, min/max, average and std. deviation for each string of shots. It also can collect temp/barometric pressure using GPS to store in the data file. Once you're done shooting, just email the file to yourself and you've got all the info at your finger tips! Can't believe I didn't think to get one of these earlier!
