    I love range testing! Do you record weather conditions when testing? Things such as temperature, humidity, ect.?

    Wishing you have a better endeavor this time. Your info is nice.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    Thanks, Hi-Speed for reconsidering posting your findings. I have used that same Unique load in a snub, I will have to dig up those numbers and compare to your longer barrel. If my memory serves, I think I was getting just over 900. Thanks again.

    I should…it is approx 4,700 ft above sea level here, yes closer to heaven! Temp in morning…typically about 60-65, Humidity LOW here in the high desert. Thanks again

    Thank you, looks like something I'd like to replicate for my Ruger BH's
    “You should tell someone what you know. There should be a history, so that men can learn from it.

    He smiled. “Men do not learn from history. Each generation believes itself brighter than the last, each believes it can survive the mistakes of the older ones. Each discovers each old thing and they throw up their hands and say ‘See! Look what I have found! Look upon what I know!’ And each believes it is something new.
