Sport45, the biggest variable in the way most folks use chronographs is themselves. Us humans don't hold a rifle to our shoulder with exactly the same force from shot to shot. Nor is our body positioned behind the rifle exactly the same for each shot.

Clamping a rifle in a free recoiling return-to-battery machine rest is best for rifles. Barreled actions clamped in a solid mount is what SAAMI uses. Arsenals use a barreled action in a Mann rest; a long V block holding the barrel's fitment rings. Such devices have the same resistance to recoil during barrel time for every shot. Velocities are very accurately measured.
