2000lbs from 2.75" bbl?
it's just that the barrel pressure data we've been working on at work seems to reflect a need for about 4 inches to get most of your charge out. if it's 2600 at 7 in, i would think 2000 would happen around 5.Ben said:I'd love to try out a 500 mag sometime, from the reviews I've read it seems like 454 has a worse reputation for being a painful shooter. With the hogue grips on my Ruger it doesn't bother me at all so I figure 500 should be ok.
Should be close, the full house 500 mag rounds in a longer barrel will be 2600 lbs energy or more. I know the tests with my 2.25" Ruger 454 showed about .25% energy loss from the 7.5" barrels.einzelherz said:2000lbs from 2.75" bbl?
