    Thank you very much. When I did my testing, MANY years ago, the internet was not yet available to 'spread the word'.
    Keep up the good work.:cool:

    Thanks for looking. When I got my 10mm a couple years ago, the interwebz existed but there was virtually no terminal data available for the cartridge. I'd like to publish as much as I can for the cartridges that regular folks might use for hunting or defense but aren't issued by police departments so there isn't a lot of data available.
