How to set up a chrono

I bought a chronograph but have no idea how to set it up. There’s a memory option where I put the info for the gel balls but I don’t know if I’m doing it right any help please???

You n es two key inputs

Gel size: I average this out over a bunch, say 20 or so
Gel weight: same deal, I average out over a bunch but you need rather sensitive scales

Bringing this back up as I got my own chronograph, testing with my vector and it’s either chronograph is set up wrong or something is wrong with my vector,

I asked the guy who was serving me what settings do you roughly recommend and I’m pretty sure this is what he said,

I haven’t got good enough scales to measure what I was shooting.

I set mine to 7.3mm and 0.20gram

Oh. 0.20 grams, the guy said 8 grams, why I figured I would put 8 grams

Is it necessary to input the correct weight and size? What bearing would it have versus just using the standard setting?

I don’t know never tried inputting the incorrect settings :thinking:

Weight only affects the joules calculation.

Size: shouldn’t but I’m not certain. Curious

Just ran a test, 6mm vs 7.2mm. No notable difference in the numbers.

You can get an app for some that have Bluetooth.

Wt is the weight input, so would the Cal be the gel size
