Hooray for the big brown truck of happiness! Chrono goodness

Post by SoupOrMan »

A large box containing chronographical goodness appeared at my house today. I can finally check to see how close I'm getting to the loading manuals. I'm not expecting anything perfect (I read "Why Ballisticians Get Gray" after all) but I'll be able to see how close I can get. The instructions seem easy enough. I also have plenty of .22LR for getting used to the system.

I got the Chrony Gamma Master and the Printer. I was torn between it and the PACT. I also picked up the LED light fixtures for indoor shooting, since I'll be checking pistol loads for the time being. Prices seemed about the same, all told.

And for whatever reason, I could've sworn I put all that information in the first post. I must be more tired than I thought.

I didn't get a great bargain, but I did manage to get the Gamma Master and Printer together for $175. The LED light fixture was probably the most expensive accessory. With a car jumpstart pack and cigarette lighter adapter, I can run the LEDs for a while. I just have to remember to put everything into a chronograph-only bag.

I can finally see whether or not my handloads are making major power factor or not. If not, it's time to bump up the powder a little.

At some point in time, the truth must be known. It's for the children.

The children can't handle the truth; it will wrap their young fragile minds.
