True. Note that AGC also has a minimum ammunition velocity standard of 750 fps for shooting steel. There are a number of cartridges in certain loadings that won't meet that spec.

The specs on certain ammunition, especially with regard to a number of the older cartridges, need to be looked at. Hornady's Cowboy loading in 45 Colt at 725fps is one such example of a factory loading that doesn't meet that spec . There are other examples that likely rate a close look if by chance one was shooting one of these older cartridges, to be sure the specific loading is north of 750.
