    Chrony Results w/ Kimber 1911s

    Finally got a chance to try out the Chrony at the range yesterday. Before it started raining too much, I ran several strings of the Winchester ammo I had on hand to see how my two Kimbers performed with the same loads. Below are average results in Feet Per Second.

    ______________________Desert Warrior 5"____Ultra CDP II 3"
    White Box 230gr FMJ-----------------814----------------720
    Ranger SXT 230gr JHP----------------868----------------800
    Ranger SXT +P 230gr JHP------------932----------------874

    The Chrony is a pretty neat little gadget. It'll be a lot of fun to try out different loads, especially if I get back into reloading. I have the Master model which has an remote display/control.



    Cheers,

    Thumbs up Great Review

    Nice review ! I always wanted to play with a chronograph, especially back when I did a bunch of reloading...Looks like white box ammo has a slower burning powder compared to the other two...Looking forward to some more feedback on your new gadjet.

    Here is more,
    for those who consider using FMJ's for various reasons other then paper killing. FORGET ABOUT CCI BLAZER -the aluminum cased ones.

    15 rounds.

    PF: 177 <----- The surprise !!!

    I expected those factory rounds at the 850 f/s velocity range as they are advertised.
    CCI Blazer -chronos around 770 f/s and loaded less then they advertised.

    15 rounds of Blazers again:
