Exclamation CHRONYS

It is not exact, does not tell me pressure, it only tells me the load is approaching max or may be too high...
Well I was always happy things worked and hit what they were supposed to. These days, with more time, maybe too muchon my hands I have started being concerned more with velocity than much else. I am thinking if five rounds are loaded, and all treated the same, the velocity of said rounds should be pretty much the same-- even with any given box??? Need I rethink all this??
