Ballistics by the inch

8 million hits in the naked city.

Hey everyone –

Long time, no posts. Sorry about that. The summer and fall were filled with a lot of different high-intensity projects. But I have several things to share this morning…

One, we broke 8 million hits to the BBTI website about a week ago. That’s in just under 3 years time. Congrats to one an all, and thanks.

Two, barring unforeseen complications and general catastrophe, *tomorrow* we’ll launch the completely revamped BBTI. It will contain all the data that you know and love, but there will be a lot more. Like:

  • Data on our .22 chop tests this summer – 10 different ammos, and also 20 ‘real world’ .22 guns.
  • Data on our .460 Rowland chop tests last spring – an impressive cartridge!
  • Data on our .223 chop tests this last spring – Yup, it is definitely a rifle cartridge.
  • Data on our HUGE ‘Cylinder Gap’ tests this last spring, involving over 6,000 rounds fired. Some very interesting results.
  • Revised means of navigating the site, to reflect the way people have been using it, in order to make it faster and easier.
  • A comprehensive list of the 99 different ‘real world’ guns we’ve tested so far.
  • A bunch of new graphs and charts and data sets for your inner ballistic geek.
  • Some new links and other goodies.

So, get the champagne on ice, find your party hats – there’s gonna be a celebration tomorrow as we launch this new ship!
