Messed with it quite a bit today.  Not going to work.  Needs rear sensor.  I will save it for parts.  I have be informed that for fathers day I can get a new one along with a new Tumbler.  ;D  My 30 year old Thumbler is about dead. So with that said.  Which one to get?  Another Chrony? F1 master?  Would like the remote screen this time.

What make is the tumbler?  My old Dillon (CV-2000) burned out the motor, they said send it back with a check for $70 and They actually sent me a brand new CV-2001 to replace it...

So check for warranty if any.

Thanks for the tip.  It is actually more Scott Murray than Thumbler.  It is a hodgepodge of old parts from both.  I am ready for a new one. The Dillon and Lyman are on my list.   Guessing they are both Chinese.

..I understand there are so many dead Chronys, they put out a cook book....kinda like the Road Kill Cafe Cookbook for electronics.   :o


One thing I learned a long time ago was if someone wants their loads chronoed, I shoot the loads across MY chrono not them. I had a friend nick the rear screen on an Ohler 33 many years ago and never let anyone shoot their own gun again.

Another thing that helps is to put up a target to sight on.

Hey I know this is an old thread, but I shot mine yesterday with the Glock 20, only took out one of the shade rods, I found it and was able to bend it back enough so atleast its still works, so thats shot #2, earlier this year it took an xtp from my G19 to one of the front corners, no vitals hit, so its been pretty lucky. I have a Caldwell and so far its been pretty good.

Bamboo skewers work well as replacements in a pinch, if they get hit nothing lost...

Yeah...In fact I suggest to people to just replace the metal shade rods with wood right away.  If you accidentally catch a wood rod, it just shatters.  Hit a metal one and it takes your chrono for a ride.

I shot my light diffuser last week. I have been shooting over the chronograph for 30 years, and never hit one.

I've left mine home alone several times and it never runs out and kills anyone.

Tell your wife this is why you need to buy a LabRadar chrony. Can't do that with a LabRadar.  ;D

In some instances, you still need to be careful. Shooting suppressed, the muzzle of the can needs to be several inches behind mine for the sensor to record the shot.

I was lucky with my Shooting Chrony, only took out a wire for the front screen.

I shot my chrony with 308 and did my (extra) part to keep em in business.
