Just read this write up on lucky gunner. This is the most comprehensive, detailed, and with the methodology: accurate test of the sort I have seen.
I recommend reading the article by anyone with an AR-15. I would expect the same results to hold true looking at steel cased pistol ammo. For the barrel wear etc in a pistol should mimic the results found in a rifle.
It would be interesting to see the same test completed using AK or SKS rifles to see how they fair with the still cased, alloy jacketed rounds. Since that is by far the most available ammunition for that type of rifle. I would expect the same results, but would still be interesting to confirm.Authored By Halon330 Remember, I'm not crazy, just extremely sincere!
