Until such times as the pellet manufacturers can consistantly get the pellets the same weight then I feel having a slightly lower maximum limit:-
  1. Allows for pellet variation. Do not think that anyone would go through tins of pellets to get them all the same to be used for a checking rifles over the chrono.
  2. Variations in the different chronos
  3. Light and temperature has been know to affect the chrono's

My original question was really to if the UKAHFT do anything similar to the BFTA with regards maximum velocity and this was answered in the 2nd post. I think next time I need answers like this I will contact a UKAHFT representative via PM.
No mate it is pretty simple as it stands . you turn up and set you rifle to the legal limit on the pellets of choice to the chrono that is being used . now how is that complicated ? same for all . just don't run your gun to close to the limit and it is sorted ??? HOLLY
