Do chronographs still work if you shoot the metal arms?
« on: August 22, 2017, 03:52:24 PM »
The only downer in an otherwise great day of shooting was that I shot the metal arm of my chronograph with my .308 Texan.  ??? Scared the doodoo out of me. I straightened out the arm in a vice but it's not perfect. I never used it again after I blew it over so I'm not sure if it works. I think it was just a bent arm. Other than that and stepping on a yellow jacket nest (amazing how fast a 48 year old man can run when motivated by being stung) it was a great day! And now I'm off to go deer hunting this evening (with the powder burner...no deer with air rifles in CA)

Should be fine. If in doubt, shoot a few over it and see if it picks them up.

It'll work fine I busted my screen arms the first day I had mine.

Thank you for confirming that. I just got back from skinning out a buck!!!! I filled my tag with a nice little 3x2 blacktail. Welcome to the cold room, Son!!
