Kewl - thanks for all the work. More information can never hurt.

The only measurement which would be useful to have is drop at distance and joules energy on impact. FPS is not the only important measure of the virtue or vice of a particular weight. The higher .28 and .30 product has more weight and therefore more kinetic energy so theoretically, its less likely to suffer changes in trajectory based on wind resistance. Also, it has better bush penetration through light foliage.

I have noticed a run on the .25 product, but I think once people start into the green ops this summer, the .28 product will get more airplay.

I think you have judge it gun by gun. I do know that I run tightbores almost exclusively and I see .28 works very well in those. I've also tried the .28 in a stock TM M16A2 and was very surprised to see only about a 10 to 15 foot loss of distance - which to me is worth it for the definite on-target presence that is created by the .28 impact - people feel it even through gear.

And the shooter can hear the hits as well. Makes it easier to hear a guy get plowed, then call him out if he doesn't call hit.

"Sorry, I didn't feel it!"

"You fucking well heard it though, I hear three BBs hit you all the way over here you bastard! Two on your gear and one on your BDU!"

"DOH! Hit!"
