Get another Oehler 35P, they turn up occaisionally used for a very good price. Don't get the radar type chrono; only reads to 3900 fps and our little cartridges sometimes get above that ya know.

I have one that I bought to video PD shooting. Your thoughts about bolt clearance are valid but you just have to try it to see. What surprised me was how much eye relief I lost. Not a great concern...
