Ballistics by the inch

General Discussion.

OK, a catch-all for anything that doesn’t fit in the other categories.

One thing I want to mention up front is just how big a project this turned into – if you read the emails how it all got started, this was something akin to a couple of guys coming up with a crazy idea over a beer.  That we saw it through – that it took weeks of prep, long days of testing, then months of crunching data and building the website, (not to mention something like $15,000 total expenses) – amazes me.  I’m one for doing these sorts of crazy projects, but still . . . well, I hope others find it useful.  Even if we only inspire others to do more research, or for those who have proprietary data about ammo performance to release it to the public, then we’ll have accomplished something of which we can be proud.

9mm Luger (9×19)

Here is a post pertaining to the testing and results obtained for the 9mm Luger (9×19) caliber.

One note on one the “real world” guns used – the Rohrbaugh R9 is not rated for +P ammo.  This is the reason why there are no results for some of the ammo tested.
