    Dang! That was easier than I thot. Im angry about the flier. The group was shot at 25 yds from a bench with the pistol rested on a rolled up soft case. If not for the flier the group would have been a 5 shot single ragged hole:mad:

    Well here you go...;) The only differences between the two are the length of the case, powder used, and case integrity, and obviously working pressure, the .45ACP operates at 18000-20000psi and the rowland operates between 35000-40000 psi. Everything else is equal...:D

    And as promised here are the expansion tests for Golden sabers at 1350 fps. They expand beyond thier capability at less than 25 yds...
