Ballistics by the inch

Breaking 500,000

Hey everyone!  It’s been a while since I posted anything – mostly, there wasn’t a lot to say.  Word of the site and our tests continues to spread, we’re in the process of gearing up for testing the next calibers, and life has been busy.  But I thought it appropriate to share some details.

First off, probably this weekend (probably sometime late Sunday) we’ll pass half a million hits to the site.  Yeah, 500,000 hits since we went live just after Thanksgiving.  Very impressive response, and I would like to thank all those who have helped to share our testing results with the rest of the world.

Yes, we are getting ready to do the next round of testing, in about 5 or 6 weeks.  The barrels are being made, ammo gathered, guns borrowed, schedules examined.  We figure that it will probably take a long weekend to do the three calibers (.327 Magnum, .41 Magnum, and 10mm), and perhaps do some carbine testing to supplement some of the “real world” data we have for some of the other calibers we tested earlier.  I hadn’t thought too much about this, but in the last couple of weeks there has been a lot of interest in our data from the lever-gun community, so we might as well go back and provide some of that information for comparison (since we still have the remainders of the original ammo tested).

And here’s something a bit exciting – Concealed Carry Magazine, the publication of the USCCA, will have a feature article on our project in their April issue, due out the beginning of next month!  Pretty cool, and should help to spread the word of our efforts.  Be sure to look for a copy at your local newstand, or go ahead and join the USCCA and get the magazine directly.

Cheers –

Jim D.
