Product Information

The Ballistic Precision Chronograph provides accurate velocity measurements across a wide range of shooting conditions. Higher accuracy was achieved by using a high speed 48 MHz processor and by designing a circuit with an advanced data interface that allows each unit to be computer calibrated at the factory after assembly. The end result is the ability to provide much better accuracy than other chronographs on the market (+/- .25%). Although technologically advanced, the unit is designed to be simple to operate, displaying velocity in Feet per second or Meters per second on the large built in LCD screen. The Chrono can also deliver the shot string velocity data through the 15' foot audio jack cable (included) to an iPhone or iPad (not included). A free App is available for download that displays the velocity of each shot on the phone screen and records it with other data identifying the load and environmental conditions. The App also automatically calculates Average Velocity, Standard Deviation, Min, Max and Velocity Spread for the shot string. The data is stored and can be exported via Email or simply recalled for reference at a later date. The sunshades are extra wide for better reliability on sunny days and are constructed of a durable synthetic material. Measures from 5 to 9,999 FPS. There is a ¼-20 threaded insert on bottom of housing for tripod mounting, operates on a 9 Volt battery (not included). Each unit factory calibrated to within +/- 0.25% accuracy Ideal for Firearms, Archery, Airgun and Paintball Simple operation, large LCD screen Meters Per Second (MPS) or Feet Per Second (FPS) readings Extra wide sun screens for added shading in full sun operation Option to interface with Smartphone via included 15’ audio jack cable App displays velocity, logs data, notes, weather conditions, easily exports via SMS or Email Carry bag included

Note: Smart Phone pictured is not included.

Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph

By Patrick D. on Mar 29, 2023
Reasonably priced basic chronograph. This item provides all the information I require for developing my rifle handloads. It provides the extra margin of safety I'm looking for when approaching MAX loads. Its very easy to set up. I bought a $15 dollar standard thread pattern camera tripod which works great.

Nice Chronograph!

By ROBERT W. on Mar 23, 2023
This is a very nice chronograph at a very reasonable price! It gives all the info I need such as velocity, high, low, average, extreme spread, and standard deviation. Only drawback I had is that the software for newer android phones is outdated so the site would not allow me to download it. It said the software was only for OLDER versions of android. That is why I gave it only 4 stars. Other than that, it is a great unit!

Easy to use Chronograph

Very easy to use chronograph. I use the supplied cable to hook into my iPad and store all of my results. Just download the Caldwell app onto your phone or tablet and you are all set.

Great chronograph

Worked great , added an iphone pigtail adapter and used the Caldwell ap perfectly. This is a great product.

This works great for developing subsonic loads. I wish I had gotten one years ago.

This chronograph has worked well for me so far. I have only been able to test my (2) compound bows and pellet rifle so far. Seems very accurate in its readings and only a few "errors" recorded. This is normal from what I have read. For the money, I think this is a good deal. I will be shooting some custom buckshot loads soon to check for velocity. I have been shooting over mine in the afternoons when the sun is low and I don't use the sunscreens. Supposedly they are only needed when the sun is directly overhead? Happy with it so far!

The chronograph is easy to set up, had a nice large window to shoot through. The display is easy to read and it is really useful having all the data on your handheld device in real time.

Yes, it does miss a couple of readings in a day BUT for the money, I feel it is an excellent buy and would recommend it to my friends.
