With the trend towards pistol builds and SBRs, any tests on barrels shorter than 14.5 inches?

While this is nothing to scoff at it bums me out a bit in comparison to the TSX. I wonder which soft point was used and whether it was bonded or not. I was going to warmly load up a few hundred of my pulled 62 grain federal fusions for my 10.5 inch braced pistol I keep handy in my truck, but if these are something great like a nosler partition vs a cheapo cup and core I'm afraid the performance out of my barrel length might be mediocre if that's as deep as a 14.5 inch could drive it.

Dat TSX though. Jesusth. I wish I could get a good source for them. I was able to get a couple thousand piece commercial bags of the 145 grain LRX's for my .280 AI for like 20 cents per boolit Hopefully some .224 diameter shows up on the market as such.

Cool pictures are one thing, interpreting the data is another.

DocGKR will even admit, not every round performed the same way. M855 for example is notorious for inconsistency with fragmentation.

Also be sure to assess your own requirements and needs based on what you think you'll need.
IE: "NONE of the fragmenting 5.56 mm OTM bullets, even the heavy 75 - 100 gr loads, offer acceptable performance through automobile windshield glass. Contrary to what many believe, M193 & M855 FMJ are not very good against glass; the best military 5.56 mm load against glass is 52 gr M995 AP, followed by the 62 gr Mk318 Mod0 OTM and 70 gr Optimal "brown tip" OTM."

Most are tested down to 10.4" at a minimum, sometimes shorter like 8.9".
