    I am pushing a 140 ELD with a CCI # 200 and 41.5 gr of H4350 in twice fired Hornady brass. This is my 2nd barrel on the gun. Sadly, I didn’t do this with the first barrel. I expected it to take longer for the velocity to stabilizing. It seemed to hit a stable average velocity quickly but give less erroneous shots as I got more rounds down the tube

    Seeing this graphically is pretty educational

    Yes yes yes! I just got my shilen 6.5cm barrel in the mail yesterday. How did you enjoy taking it out of the tube? I cut my hand pretty good with a flat head screw driver trying to open it

    So much for a 50 shot break in being necessary.

    Well done. I’d be curious how you like the heavy palma vs the medium. I’m going to order a 28″ 7.5 tw from NSS when I can.

    I wish you would publish this separately with just the data points and deleting the line. It’s fascinating.
