Well since you ask…This has already been discussed, ad nauseum, but why would you think reloaders need a chronograph? If your loads function properly in your gun and they're very accurate, isn't that sufficient? Knowing your velocity is nice, but hardly necessary, simply because you loaded the components yourself. Consider that people have been loading and reloading for decades (centuries, if you count muzzle-loaders) without having any idea what velocity they were getting, and yet, their guns were safe and effective. Many hunters go afield each year with factory and handloaded ammo, completely oblivious to their exact velocity, and harvest game with surprising efficiency.
It's just a thought...
Once we know the real velocity our loads we produce, we can build real drop charts… Which is very useful in my book, and you can also see how stable your velocity is.
I just believe there is no downside to know how your loads are performing velocity wise.
I do understand… Opinions vary
