For anyone that handloads, having a chronograph to check for consistent velocity is an important step in the process.

Compact and portable, the AmmoMaster chronograph from RCBS makes recording projectile velocities simple.

The AmmoMaster Chronograph from RCBS is a handy, portable option for accomplishing these tasks. With a detachable electronic keypad on a 20-foot cable and twin plastic diffusers, it is capable of precise measurements from 50 to 7,000 fps. Operating on a single 9-volt battery and attaching to a standard camera tripod, the AmmoMaster can be set up in minutes and stores up to 100 records. All pieces store inside the central housing (with its distinctive shape) and the unit comes with a one-year warranty.

Being able to accurately measure velocities is important for many applications we may face. If using a sound suppressor, greater noise reduction is possible with subsonic ammunition, and a chronograph can assist in tuning a lower-powered handload for that end. For precision work, achieving as flat a trajectory as possible assists in accurate shooting, and being able to precisely record velocity measurements keeps handloads consistent.

MSRP: $163.95.
