    I was using SoftChrono and with the mic at 3′ and the target at 6′, I got 15 shots that were almost all 1000fps with the furthest away being 997fps. The power was at 10-10.

    I turned it down to the lowest power setting, and I still got about 7 shots going at 1000fps. All of the rest were erratic and went anywhere between 960fps and 1000fps.

    So why is it showing 1000fps when the power is turned down?
    I know there are more efficient and proper ways to show you guys the stats.

    So does this 1000fps at 10-10 sound right? What would you say a stock Talon SS would shoot at 1000fps with a 16 grain, .033 BC, .22 pellet?

    Assuming your SS is stock, and in .22, I’m wondering how you get those numbers on ANY power level!

    Nope,

    With a pellet like that you are going to be looking at 800fps + or –

    You need to tweek something in the program

    So what settings in the program should I be changing to get the best fps estimation accuracy? If I’m trying to plug some numbers into an equation that requires the fps, could I use the number 850?

    Oops sorry jooleyen I thought you meant your gun was actually shooting those numbers when you really meant the crono is not accurate. Wish I could help but I never had a crony of any kind so I don’t know much about how to calibrate/tweak them ect. Good luck tho.

    Saugus18,

    I think I see what you’re saying… SoftChrono isn’t an actual chronograph, It’s a software program for computers that has something to do with measuring the decibels your gun puts out, with a microphone.

    Yes, Ive heard of that program… may try to give it a spin someday myself with our laptop, sounds interesting. Let me (us) know how it works out. I’d like to learn more about that at some point.
