I decided to take on the reloading hobby almost a year ago due to the expansive ammo shortage and have had great success (thanks to multiple forum members on advice and even sparring supplies during the darkest days). The knowledge found here is what keeps me coming back and is the case now!
The chronograph I ordered just arrived at the doorstep and is begging me to zing some rounds though it. But before I race off to Birchwood and look like a fool with the thing, I figured I would receive some sound advice here.
-I did some background research and it looks like the apparatus needs sun to operate correctly. Tomorrow is supposed to be partly sunny, but is that good enough on a winter day?
-Should I wait to shoot when the sun is at its highest point?
-Does anyone recommend putting something under the chrono to prevent glare? If so, what?
-Sounds like 10 foot may be the best distance to start with?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
