We demonstrate an improvement in short-term stability by a factor of 10 over a previous generation miniature buffer gas cooled trapped ion clock. We describe the enhancement to detection SNR that has enabled this improvement, the method of clock operation, and the measurement of clock short-term stability. Additionally, we numerically investigate the magnitude of the Dick effect in our pulsed ion clock.
