actually i always liked brown sugar in my cream of wheat...but this is an interesting little read....from sugar to cream of wheat and corn bread mix....
if the only constant is the bullet wt./gr.(mass), then the energy and velocity have to vary according to each other per that equation posted earlier in the muzzle energy thread ENERGY=0.5*(MASS)*(VELOCITY)^2
i could see where someone might be firing two different loads, a regular and a sweet, and if they're both blowing thru 1/2" plywood at 100yds....the assumption maybe that both rounds have the same energy behind them, when in fact it may be the plywood only requires 200ft lbs to penetrate and one round is hitting at 600 and the other at 400 and more quietly out the muzzle....that would be my explanation for the original assumption.
I always wondered what purpose dripping wax on hollow points served as done by Roy Schieder in Jaws.....
