Well, let's take a look at Oehler's web site and find out.

It sits on the bench.

You couldn't tell from the pic?

The chronograph is that calculator looking device sitting on the bench. The sky screens (in front of the rifle in the picture) must always be close to where the bullet is going to travel. So it is possible to shoot them if you're not careful.

Let the chronograph do all the math for you. It'll do it about 50,000 times faster and more accurately.

To answer your question though, the standard deviation is the square root of the summation of the squares of the difference of each sample in a set to the average of the set divided by the number of samples. See why you should leave the calc to the chrono?

the calculator looking device could have been the printer.and the brain could have been up there with the sky screens where they could catch a bullet.does the unit come with everything but the bipod,thanks,keith

That I'm not sure. That would be a good question for the dealer you bought it from. Sometimes even the sky screen bar is an accessory. I believe the 35P comes with everything you need, but I'm fairly certain the tripod isn't included. But you should check to be sure.

FYI, if you get the "Master" line Chrony, the brains are in the unit that goes on the bench. The part you shoot through is only a $35 replacement. As me how I know.

My 35p kit came with everything but a tripod. It was all enclusive.

Great unit, very reliable and easy to set up. Now, if only the tripod was that easy.....

I've had an Oehler 35 for several years - - -

and I am a big believer in their products. I chose Oehler because two different forensic firearms examiners told me that (1) They use Oehler in their labs, and (2) The goevernment firearms labs--hardly constrained by economy-- use Oehlers.

I have been entirely satisfied with the 35. My ONLY dissatisfaction is that I was too cheap to order it with the printer. I still think that someday I'll send it back to the factory for refurbishing and get the printer at the same time. No, you don't have to send it in for the printer--I just like the idea of preventive maintenance.

Best,
Johnny Guest

Oehler

Colt: The tripods are professional and used a lot in setting up lights for photo. A Good deal.
