    QuickLoad

    Hi guys,

    For you guys who use it how do you find it. i have only just got it and juts playing about really but cant seem to get accurate figures.

    For example, for my .204 load it is predicting 3891ftps with the load data that I have inputed, when actaully im only getting 3707ftps??



    Also for my .22 Hornet it is predicting 3239ftps when in real life im only getting 3019ftps.


    Any idears anyone, it seemt to be over predicting?

    Steve.

    Works very well for me!
    You have to tune it to the brass and rifle then check velocities. There are a few variables that can/need to be changed.
    Best thing is read the manual, no I'm not joking, if you don't you will not get anywhere!

    Such is the problem with "Quick Load". It is not infallibly accurate, in fact, far from it. I don't use it any more unless, it would be for using a powder/cartridge/bullet combo for which there is no established data; and then only as a rough guide.~Muir

    I find it fairly accurate, but as Joe_bloggs says, you need to fine tune it, including barrel length and brass etc

    So it is with in 5-6%. How accurate do you want?

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Well one is led to believe that all chronos, insert any name (....), are made "accurately", they all have a manufacturing tolerance and this is also affected by environmental variables.
    The reality is - for accuracy read expense i.e. temperature controlled oven for the crystal oscillators, highest quality components, cable etc etc, now this just is not available to the (couple) hundred quid chrono.

    Best you can achieve is some per session consistency in readings rather than absolute values, the BR guys go all gooey over the SD ES etc. without remembering the limitation of the equipment.

    +1 it's a guidance thing rather than an 'absolute'. Not all your ammunition or indeed you for that matter will perform the same under all conditions and circumstances. All this stuff gives a general sort of clue about where you're at. ATB
