Ron, those who have been following your testing might understand.

However others that haven't been following right along, only understand that you shot a bullet at 25yds, with a muzzle velocity of approximately 1600fps using 80grs volume of BH209. Thus showing what the bullet does using that charge at that range.

At the same time, I would suggest most of those reading might be wondering why the test was only done with 80grs, when the majority of hunters use charges of 100+grs.

If you're intent is ONLY to identify what a bullet does at 25yds with an 80gr volume charge, then the test is what it is.

However, if there's an attempt to show how a bullet might perform at any other or longer ranges using any other charge and velocity, an explanation should accompany any chart or the reasoning.
