Well, this ammo may not have been a good deal. The guy I gave them to has a convertible .45 Super Blackhawk that we tried a few rounds in. I don't think his 1911 would have fared as well. they were smokin' hot loads. We guessed about how he built them up and measured th epowder charge on a bunch of the loads and it seems that he had gone a grain or two heavy on them.

Oh, man. Now MM's going to try that and crash his truck, hit a pedestrian or have some other serious calamity fall upon him.

When our family was "road-schooling" in the RV we had this conversation and did the experiments in the RV on the highway. That is why I said to hit the brakes because under acceleration the change of speed is not that fast compared to throwing the anchor on the brake pedal. Also, I said to swerve to the right, not to the left and into oncoming traffic. Also, if the driver swerves right they hit themselves with the ball!

OK, Mobilemarine, DO NOT TRY THIS!!! Someone with your luck (Hey, bad luck is still luck!) will not fare too well doing this experiment.

Once that question is answered we can move on to the Bonus Question;
If you jump in the air in the aisle of a jetliner...Why doesn't the plane smack you in the azz??
Because you are moving at the same speed, Newton's three laws.
You are you because cellular adaptation takes place on a continuing basis, snd therefore you adapt consistently as well. You are not the same you as when you were born though
