Keep working on it, you'll find it.

This has me puzzled however.


Nosler doesn't make a FMJ bullet in .224.

So to compare the "ballistics" we use full power 40 and watered down 10MM to make them equal? When comparing recoil, we compare full power 10mm and full power 40?

Interesting concept.

I think he is using Alliant's load data for ARComp. If that's the case, then reducing Alliant's data by 10% is the correct staring point as they only list a Max.
