Great. Now again.... I'm in no way knocking your tests or methods, on the contrary I applaud them highly.

I see a lot of non-members (guests) show up on both sites quite often. Many of those may totally misunderstand the testing data, even with the chart included.

Its when they see a velocity of 1,600fps in the test, then a chart showing 1,900fps that can confuse them.
If an explanation indicated that the chart was meant to parallel a 100gr volume charge, which is why the 1,900fps velocity was used in the chart, it might very well help some understand.
