Hey guys,
Considering purchasing a chrono. Just curious, what make/model is a good one for a fair amount of money? It won't need to be dead nuts accurate, but would like it to be the ballpark. The chrono will just be used for hunting load purposes.

Shooting chrony is okay. A bit of a pain to set up

Magneto,speed is next. It's nice but can affect barrel harmonics since you are adding a weight to the end

Another advantage the Magneto-Speed has is you do not have to buy a tripod as with all the other cheaper ones.

Pro-Chrono if on a budget. I have had great luck with mine, haven't even shot it yet !!!Lots of room through the sun screens, other brands are kinda small. I have the remote display, all works well. It does like 9V batteries!!

If ya got an extra $400 get the magneto , cool rig
