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.

Officially, I like big guns and old guns...but if I keep seeing those new little ones kickin' butt...I guess I'm going to have to get one

(after I run a match with the big 101 year old revolver...of course )

I guess now I have to use my P365 carry gun next time or I’m just going to feel bad. Hmm. Might need a different holster for that! And a couple more mags dammit. This place is trouble.

No kidding. I just ordered a case of 9mm and the wife caught me perusing GunBroker...
