These articles are getting to be a bit of a tradition during the Christmas Holiday season so get ready for Holiday Gift Ideas for Precision Shooters 2016! We try to throw a mix of different items in here. Anything from a stock to a rangefinder to reloading equipment. The goal is to provide some gift ideas for the precision rifle shooter in your family. We try to spread the ideas across a wide range of items and especially price ranges. Not everybody has thousands of dollars to drop on a scope so we try to provide multiple suggestions across the spending spectrum. This is all stuff I think just about any precision shooter would welcome to take up some space under the tree. So with all that in mind, let’s get started!
The importance of the proper use of a chronograph is not one that I would ever understate. One of the biggest influences on the performance of a given cartridge of any caliber is the speed of the projectile as it leaves the muzzle. 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!
