    experimented with this. The article is from a Nov/Dec issue of American Handgunner. The article talks about the differences in fps between having powder in the front of the case and powder in the back of the case. Pretty interesting. Let me know if any of yall have done any shooting to see the validity of the article. Good read anyway.

    be safe

    We did some experimenting with this back in the mid-90s. We decided that our weapons (9mm, .357, .45ACP, 30-06) were not effected enough to be noticable if hand held. From a locked rest (vise) the difference could be seen only if one used ammunition which was very carefully crafted. The reduction in deviation was barely noticable on the chronograph.
