Default Question for Oehler 35 P chronograph users.

I have a quick question for Oehler 35 P chronograph users. Can you please tell me what the highest velocity's youíve been able to consistently read with it? Could you also tell me what caliber bullets you were getting those readings on and if you were reading naked, coated or blackened bullets?

I thank you very much for any information you can share on the high speed readings.

Wish you the best of luck on your upcoming shoot,

Carl C.

I have been able to consistently read approx 4150fps on mine shooting both 32 and 40 grain 20cal bullets that are danzac (tungsten disulphide) coated. Only done this a couple times as the loads were a bit hotter than I wanted to load for PD trips.

Default I have gotten...

4403 FPS while I was working on a ladder test.This was with the old 33 grain VMax in 20 caliber.I have also recorded 4100-4200 FPS regularly with my 20 Dasher.All naked bullets,but I have used a sharpie on some 17s in very bright sun.Currently Iím using the Magneto V3 so I donít have to go down range amongst the M4 shooters

It has been a while but I tried some 36gr barnes varmint grenades (.224") at around 4300. You can check the manual, but if you're actually maxxing it out you could just set the screens further apart and do some math. I think the standard is 4 foot spacing, so for example you could set them at 6 feet and adjust the reported speeds. The manual also describes this iirc, and there are some little switches you could fiddle with too.
