not looking for a battle of wits, but may I suggest you reread your reloading manuals dealing with over pressures. nowhere in any of mine is "published" that shooting setback rounds is safe.So, some people believe that the ballisticians and scientists at CCI/Speer are wrong and they are right.
But, everyone's free to go with their beliefs instead of scientific evidence, that's what makes horse races.
I just don't want to shoot next to anyone who goes with feelings over scientific data.
Nope, but the graph clearly shows it is safe and my personal experience echoes that.not looking for a battle of wits, but may I suggest you reread your reloading manuals dealing with over pressures. nowhere in any of mine is "published" that shooting setback rounds is safe.
so if you feel safe using that "scientific data" please shoot your "malfunctioning ammo" in your own private area"
I'm glad to see what I posted had the desired effect, and that was to get people thinking instead of just accepting what "common knowledge" says about something.Thanks Flash for that info.
From what I've read the average 9mm factory ammo is somewhere between 32,000 psi and 35,000 psi. I've also read that +P ammo is somewhere between 36,000 psi and 40,000 psi.
It's hard for me to comprehend that a few thousands of inset will cause the pressure to increase above a +P round (not to even mention the +P+ round).
Also, it's inconceivable for me, to think that reputable manufacturers are producing a product so close to its upper limit that a few thousand additional psi will cause a catastrophic event. Seems to me that in this day and age of litigation that manufacturers would make sure their products can more than handle the +P round. (I think Walther cautions against shooting them but I don't recall others doing so.)
Oh well, I'm just surmising, and found your reference article very interesting.
