Yeah, and a lot of those 3500 to 4000 FPS rounds were also
tearing up barrels at an almost unbelievable rate. Shredding
your barrel for a bullet which is only going to shed the velocity
or has no viable terminal ballistics is just a waste of time, anyway.
One of the issues we all seem to overlook is our reloading manuals would
have more useful information about popular calibers like 308, 30.06,
