I am pretty sure I am going to get this Chrony. I like the iphone/Android App option too :-)

www.cabelas.ca/product/73296/caldwell-b ... hronograph

I am grateful to the member who pointed this out a few weeks back. Curious if anyone has experience with it yet.

Nice option vs the more expensive Shooting Chrony.

Yes that is the sale price of the link I provided above :wink:

I am ordering one on payday. Oh - that is tomorrow :P 8)

However, here are various Calwell offering from amazon.ca and they appear to have various grades like the Shooting Chrony brand

Yes I saw that earlier. More bells & whistles = more dough :)

Just ordered mine ~

Choose coupon code : GIFT for free shipping :wink:

I have now read reviews and the free app can have android issues...

Also, this chrony prefers you shoot at least 10 ft away for best accuracy of readings... better be a good shot :wink:

Priced sure have come down - my first chronograph was $165.00 landed in Smithers- that was 1977, I think. An Oehler model 12. It was the first chronograph with "sky screens" and not the printed foil screens you had to shoot through.

Got one love it had most chronos f1 alpha skan ect for my needs the Caldwell is the best just plug in iPhone / iPad / tablet ect and shot away I don't use it 10 foot away the bore s in front and works perfect only grip is it seems to use power when turned off easy fix just take battery out

The apps are great and free takes away the pain of recoding shots and counts endless shots I run out of air first the app works everything out too and easy to print off you get them a fair bit cheaper too

Was going to PM one or two of you but thought public may help others.

I have spent a total of over 2 hrs trying to get a fps reading "indoors" and the best I have got a few times in an error reading :lol:

Have tried with the sun shade on and off, under ceiling lights, with an extra light source on a tripod... not one reading of a pellet's fps yet...

What am I missing? If you have the basic Caldwell - what type of light and setup is giving you readings?

I don't even care about the android app at this point :wink: I just want it to work lol

I don't have the Caldwell, but many Chrony's don't like Florescent lights. . . . I use 2x Dollar store night lights with 15watt chandelier bulbs installed 1each above each sky screen. Error codes non existent. . .

Good Luck!

Thanks for chiming in - did you tape them to the sun shades?
I assume you mean the night lights you plug into an outlet

At least I now know it works outside (shot an airsoft springer pistol through it - shooting about 70 fps slower than rated :lol:
accurate but cheap...)

Nice machine - however, it is not a Chrony - "Chrony" is a copyrighted name for a specific company's Chronograph.

The Chronograph in the picture is the Ballistic Precision Chronograph.
- perhaps B P C for short - it is not a Chrony.

That is like calling all cars or trucks Chevy's or all motorcycles Harleys. If you want, I guess. :roll:

I'm quite aware, as I used the proper name in the thread title, Caldwell. I wrote Chrony as a short form everyone knows as a chronograph...

It is Sunday, perhaps you were bored and needed to nitpick... :?

As long as we're nitpicking , yup is not correct , yep is the proper spelling . LOL
I myself place my chrony alpha in a cardboard box and have two cut outs over the sensors that I place LED lights on . Works great and never get any errors .

Thanks for the tip but wish to understand further - so the chrony is enclosed in a box but the sensors have cutouts - but you have led lights on them. How does this not block the sensors from the reading?
