Default why chronos can be fooled...

this is why muzzle brakes, silcencers, moving the muzzle back from the sensor and putting bits of paper over the muzzle can all increase muzzle energy readings...

and on a .44 rifle putting out around 600 ft-lb we're recording chrono readings at the club 6ft back from the chrono because of this effect... that and using IR so any light change isn't affecting the chrono...
