Inconsistent, flimsy and inaccurateUsed this to measure consistency of my .308 and .338 LM custom reloads. Followed the instructions to the letter and had 2 other experienced shooters with me to double-check the setup.
The materials and build quality were cheap and flimsy. The stability of the device (both on the tripod and standalone) is unsteady providing inconsistent and error readings when it shifted from wind, ground vibration or barrel gas dispersal (caused by a muzzle brake). Optical sensors too sensitive to sunlight, dust obstructions and bullet trajectory. Maybe a good product for lower calibers, at a range or for a bow, but not suitable for serious shooters to accurately measure custom reload consistency and performance.

Works great!This Cronograph was a huge upgrade from the old Shooting Crony I had. I use the LED lights all the time, and set it up on my porch plugged into 110 volt. The app has also worked well, and I don't think I've missed a shot yet in any light, even later in the evening. I even think the tripod, while on the light side, is functional and sturdy enough for my use. I highly recommend for the price.

lots of error codesI've been using this system for about 2 years now. The app worked on my LG G2 but not my Samsung Galaxy 7. After 1 year, the app still won't work. I consistently get error codes when turning on and using the chronograph. Due to this, I'm afraid my numbers are way off. I'm constantly getting spreads of 100+fps even though I'm using precision scales and confirming with balances. The tripod is sad at best and a slight breeze when using will knock it over. Save your money and go with MagnetoSpeed.

GoodWas easy to use, tripod works good haven't had any issues with it. It never has worked with my I phone 6, tried everything but won't work with the phone. I wouldn't recommend spending the extra money for the kit. I mainly use it for checking my reloads.

Works as advertised.After looking at several chronographs in my price range, I settled on the Caldwell ballistic precision kit. A connected phone is not required to use this chronograph but it sure comes in handy for recording muzzle velocity and calculating extreme spread and standard deviation. Without a phone, simply record each muzzle velocity on a note pad. The large display is easy to read in all light conditions. This chronograph recorded all my shots on cloudy and full sun days. Be sure to use the diffuses on bright/sunny days and follow the simple instructions to achieve best performance. The tripod works okay but I have my doubts about its long term durability. This is the only reason I didn't give this chronograph kit an excellent rating. The downloaded android app (free) works great on my older Samsung phone. The zippered case is handy to kept everything together. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
It will but it is a fine line between being two close that you don't get a realistic reading and two far where you risk the shot spreading and hitting a component of the chrono.

Is the iPhone/iPad the only compatible devices to run a chronograph program on? If so is there a certain model that is compatible and ones that are not?
