That will be great!  Would definately like to see more of its guestimations and how they play out with the pressure signs you see from shooting.
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.

I priced pressure barrels the other day.  The barrel itself wasn't that bad at about $350.  You would still need an action to put it in, and to instrument it up.  I bet you could build one for about $700.  That would be great to pair up with quickload and observations like case head expansion.  Then we could get out own idea about what factory loads are doing, as well as develop more consistent handloads.

Thanks, Using that system would be better than those which use the strain gauge wrapped around the out side of a barrel.  The SAAMI test uses a strain gauge inside in contact with the casing from what I read.  The straing gauge maybe a pistol type?
 ???

I did come up with this company that makes the pressure transducers said to be what SAAMI uses.

That would be awesome! 8)

I added a copy of a chart of ammo performance levels to the intro sheet.  As we review these some of the numbers have been safely exceeded on the upper end!   ;D

My real Winchester Subsonic 180gr JHP FBI load says 950-980 on the box. It is really FBI Lite. This was the LE only ammo. No retail sales.

No charge weight for the 170's to match it up. Do you know if anything exists?
