Only a matter of time!
You had better NOT point a gun or a bow at it then!

I keep an extra set of diffusers and rods (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=128143) in my range bag. I shot one of the rods one time being careless. :o

I won't need that. I always hit what I'm aiming at. :neener:

I have put a few hundred rounds through mine without shooting it. If you are using it to build up loads and only shoot 30 or 40 when you go out, just make sure you pay really close attention to those 30 or 40.

Of course i only take readings 10 - 15 feet from the muzzle I guess if you are trying to take reading a 100 yards out it might be a different story.

Good Luck

Agree with drg. Had mine about a year with a couple thousand rounds over it, I only measure muzzle velocity at 10 feet or so, so If I can't see shadowing in the scope, I figure I am not going to hit it.

BUT, I agree it is probably only a matter of time.

Ahem...

It's not a Pro Chrony Digital... :cuss:
it's a Pro Chrono Digital - please respect the fact that it's in a class of it's own... :D

I will admit I hit one of the diffuser rods on my Pro Chrono once when firing my Keltec P11- that gun has a bit of a nasty kick along with a 7lb DA trigger and I flinched on one of shots in the string I was measuring. Never again...

That the problem.... you're aiming at it ... you just don't know it ... until you see the parts fly!

ALWAYS set up a target centered on the 'sweetspot' for your 'chrono' and ALWAYS use it.

Avoid using it at all when Chrono season opens.

I'm smarter... I keep in my range bag an extra chrono! :p

I do need to borrow one..... Mine was "broke" a couple years ago and not replaced. Something about it being my own fault.

I read this tip someplace:

Replace the diffuser rods w/ wooden dowels. There's a size that is almost exactly what the rods are (I have the ProChrono too), maybe a tiny bit of sanding to get them to fit (mostly mine did w/ no sanding, but a little touch helped one). Measure the rod and take your calipers when you shop for them. :)

If you shoot one, you just take out a wooden dowel, not a metal rod which can take down the entire unit.

I've got a couple extra wooden dowels with mine just in case...: )

I don't get it, you guys are still making it sound like I'm gonna shoot my unit. I've told ya's, there's no way that's gonna happen. :uhoh:

Kind of reminds me of "Don't worry, the gun isn't loa..."

Our collective experience with 'chrony shooting' certainly reinforces the "don't point a gun at anything that you are not prepared to see detroyed".

No other way to use these useful devices though, so then, there are those who have and those who will.

To put it another way, everyday is 'chrony season'.

This thread has been fun! :evil:

Really, I hope you never do shoot it, but you got shoot at it to use it, else it just a hunk stuff just setting there gathering dust.

There is a reason nobody that I know of that sells "Life Insurance" for chronographs, don't think that would be a good business to get into.

But, I would guess that there a bookie somewere that would take odds on it that you do, maybe in Vegas.

Didn't shoot mine today.

The AK, .223 AR, 9MM AR, 25-5, EMP, TZ 75, & Trooper Mk III all missed. :D

Now I just have to log all the data.
