As to the accuracy of the chrono?
Did anyone fail on Saturday or Sunday? There was no one reported as doing so.
As some have said "they do not trust the chrono" - perhaps that's good advice.
It's unfortunate that criticism is easy but decision making is not. The decision to try this chrono was built upon advice and testing from a respected source. However, I and he would know that as soon as purchase is made they'll be a queue of people to say why another model would be better.
I don't believe any of this thread can be considered to be outright criticism, although constructive criticism in my experience is a good thing. My original post was asking if anyone had an odd reading and the answer was yes from some. This has led to a decision to change batteries before each shoot, so a good lesson learnt. Another point raised was that the position of the muzzle can cause fluctuations and Simon has offered to put together a jig to overcome that problem.
All being well, that will sort the low readings that I and a few others experienced. Surely that is what this forum is for, to discuss issues and find solutions.
Keep up the good work Shaun
