what makes chronographs give funny readings is light conditions , having the muzzle to close to the front screen and weak batteries. out of a 22-250 I have got reliable readings up to 4,000 fps so light and shiny bullets in my opinion have nothing to do with bad readings. I have an Oehler 33 that I paid $300 for but that was the only game in town 25 years ago. I don't know much about the new ones since I don't have a reason to look at them. one thing to keep in mind is that the worst I can do with mine is shoot a screen. on most of the new ones today a mistake will blow up the brains and all which means a new chronograph.
