    Shot my chrony today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yep I went to the range and was trying out my brand new F1 Master chrony-----------and shot that SOB dead center in the front and took out everything inside----------And that was the first shot---------I didn't know I was that good!!!!!!!!Man that 9mm LRN does a good job. Now I know if I am attacked by a chrony that I can kill it.

    I guess I should have aimed at it, then I would not have hit it.

    Very expensive shot.

    Bob,

    Last summer I was getting set up to chrony some loads. Had all my stuff set-up and had (10) shots each of about 2 dozen loads to shoot. A guy shooting his new 17HMR wanted to shoot across the chrony. I told him no-problem...with the caveat that if he hits it he buys it. I showed him where to shoot. At the shot my remote reads 9999-fps. Hmmmmmm. I walk up and sure enough, he nailed it dead center. He wrote me a check on the spot. Give Chrony a call and they will replace just what is needed for less than the entire unit.

    Are you gonna have it mounted? A shoulder mount would look cool.

    I bought one with most of the electronics in the readout box that sits at the bench. I know sooner or later I will shoot it. I had a gas check take a bite out of one of the screen covers so far.

    Well, I admire you for your shooting skills. I hate to see a wound shot and the game run off to die.

    9mm is a little overkill for game that size, don't ya think?
    Looking for an RCBS A2 with the removable bushing. I need it to complete my A series collection. Please let me know if you have one you want to get rid of. Thanks!

    Wonder if anyone will ever build a balistic shield around thier crony. Ive never played with one, dont know if it would mess with your readings or not. Seems to be a common problem.

    That's gonna' make some tough gravy!! It'd go well with my tag stew.

    When I got my chrony, I could see that happening......... I used some small wood dowels and put the covers waaaaay up so I could shoot higher and be safe.....so far so good.

    Nah, no one will build a shield, 'cause no one is going to shoot THEIR chrony!!
    AR 15's with scopes are outstanding for this type of hunting, with their line of sight several inches above the bore. Many chrony hunters prefer the AR.

    Bob T, If you haven't already done so, telephone Shooting Chrony and explain the circumstances. They may offer a repair or replacement of yours. Don't ask how I know this. And yes, they laughed at me when I told them my tale of woe.

    I already called. $49.95 for the unit complete less the remote screen.
