Pact Professional Chronograph XP

Pact Professional Chronograph XP

Uneven natural lighting conditions or artificial lights like you find on indoor ranges can cause erroneous velocity readings.

PACT has developed a solution to these problems with its new Professional Chronograph XP. This unit will work with natural light just like a traditional chronograph or with infrared in dim light--or even in the dark. Beyond the usual velocity and standard deviation calculations, it will also produce bullet drop, IPSC power factor, kinetic energy, momentum figures and more.

It has the ballistic coefficient for more than 800 bullets stored in memory, or you can compute your own ballistic coefficient for any bullet. Additional data inputs include temperature, altitude and bore-to-sight height. Data can be downloaded directly to your computer.


This is a versatile unit and proved to be just as accurate under artificial lights or in the dark as it was outdoors. It didn't matter whether I was testing high velocity .223 Remington or .45 ACP that lumbered across the sky screens at 900 fps--the chronograph worked perfectly. $270. www.pact.com, 800-722-8462

KelTec CMR30 22WMR Review - Compact, Versatile & Fun to Shoot

Designed for lightweight, low recoil accuracy, the CMR30 .22 WMR features a nice, single-action trigger, ambidextrous dual non-reciprocating operating handles, ambidextrous safety and heel catch magazine release. The KelTec CMR30 is a .22 Magnum carbine that holds 30 rounds in each of its two flush-fit magazines. That's a lot of firepower for a 3.8-pound, semi-auto, collapsible truck gun. It comes out of the box as you see it, including Magpul sights and ambidextrous, non-reciprocating dual operating handles. She's a straight blow-back tack driver that delivers a ton of fun.
