    No mention of odd grooved barrels here? Lucky y’all. That complicates things greatly.

    Sounds like you could improve on your reading skills. The post was clearly titled and could have been skipped over. Remember, it’s only simple matter after your process has brought you to the feeling that it’s simple. Maybe lots of other people...

    I want all my Lead to be in the same inventory I want for all my reloading stuff, powder, brass bullets etc. along with casting notes for each alloy. I want this in an app that saves the data. This app also needs to have load info.

    I got sick of using pins so I just don't now. Works fine just doesn't clean inside but I'm not concerned with the insides as much as some folks.

    Yes it’s a Kel-Tec. It’s super fun to shoot. For sure the softest shooting 308 made. But similar burn rates aren’t the whole story. This powder is wierd bulky tubes, has a strange density compared to a lot of powders. I’ve read up as much...

    If you dont know, the RFB is a revolutionary design. Its a bull pup 308 rifle with gas piston cycling and a very interesting method of operation. Due to the various design elements they can be tricky to load for and a bit finicky. I finally...

    I know my hot tub temp goes up when the ambient temp goes down. With my body completely under water it shouldn’t make a difference what ambient temp is, yet, it does. 102 summer, 104 spring and fall, 106 winter. Seems to be a similar...

    Drew P replied to a thread Chrono help in Cast Boolits
    Also, I’ll add that the reason I chose this model was it was the cheapest chronograph available. I was able to shake 90$ free for the tool. Much more than that and I’d probably be ******** about not having a chrono instead of how crappy the cheap...

    THere are several ways to use leds and in their basic function they are all DC and smooth light that I’d guess is ideal for anything like these chronos. However, the implementation of them in our homes means they need to be able to use AC power and...

    Ah ha okay. Must be the lighting then. I had heard about the fluorescent issues but not leds yet. Let me do some experimenting and get back with y’all. Thanks.

    Tried the ole pumpmaster on it and no luck. 3 bbs and one pellet but nothing registered on it. Maybe I’ll put a halogen work lamp on it and see if that helps.

    they run paintball guns at 300now?! Back when I was a kid, when paintballs were new, I thought we were running them a lot closer to 200 and those would still raise a nasty welt on a young boys back!

    So I have had one of these Caldwell chrono for a while and it would always give bunk readings and I had pretty much given up on it because I was never confident in its performance. Sun, cloud, indoor outdoor never could make a correlation. Did a...
