No issues.
Tips: take the time to properly fit it to your barrel and it won't slide around on you. I have the V2.

I have one, and this reminds be my buddy still has it, I think it is great cause you don't have to go down range to set everything up. Once I got used to setting it up on the rifle it is a dream to use.

It either comes with a rod or use a pencil in the bore to make sure it is lined up right below the bore and there is not too much gap or to little.

You will enjoy it, the weather always also shooting sometimes you just get better "field Practice".

Wish I had some time to go hit the range, good luck.

I borrowed my buddy's and we ran it while shooting thru the Oehler simultaneously and they matched up very close. I also wanted to see how much POI and groups were effected... that day we saw no difference.
we shot my .308(front gun) and his 7mm Magnum ( has Chrono on it)and 300 Ultra Mag.


I later got the newer model and have been very happy with mine.
