    You could probably do an excel spread sheet if you had the time and patience to do it lol. I just use note books for all my data, that way if my computer crashes I still have all my stats

    A spreadsheet should be backed up. Also doesn't hurt to print out the spreadsheet and put the printed copy in with your notes.

    I have a couple of spreadsheets that I use but none for chrono data (don't have one). Each time I ad, delete or make a cjhange to the spreadsheet I print it out and put it in my binder of load data after taking the old version of the spreadsheet out.

    Works for me but my not work for everyone. For me, it's easier to read printed data than my sometimes sloppy handwritting.

    Load information, place, date, temperature, humidity (if you can get it), firearm, shooter, range, group size (assuming you are shooting the target through the chronograph), notes to self

    There are probably a dozen other factors that I have overlooked.
