There are devices out there, called Chronographs, that can be used to measure the speed of the projectile as they leave the muzzle of the rifle. Setting up the chronograph properly and what the different results mean are a little less known to the average shooter. So this post will explore what a chronograph is, how to set it up, and how to interpret the information the chronograph gives us when using one!
