Now I am a relative unknown on the GP circuit, I don't travel outside the region, so if I arrived and my gun measures hot I am dismissed. But somebody as well known and high profile as you for example, you turn up and your gun is hot, let's say for example Rob's gun measures hot, so does Berty's for example, not suggesting they would but it's to illustrate the point, when three or more big names are sent off then someone is going to say, hey, that is odd, maybe the chrono is a bit dicky today, let them shoot after all. Too late in my case, I've started the 200 mile trek home.

No no no, if there is to be a chrono there at all it HAS to be accurate and it HAS to have a valid calibration certificate. If the organisers can't provide that then don't play at testing.
I see where you are coming from rich . but this is a delicate instrument . yes it has a certificat at the beginning of the year . but once dragged around the country who is to say what is what . plus it is being used outdoors , where to be fair it is not supposed to be . thus that is why i say i ballistic meter would be fairer overall . i would use a 10.6 bisley mag pellet as standard testing pellet . now that would upset a few people i can tell you ???
