Dusty Devil Dale Posted March 29, 2020 Share Posted March 29, 2020 This grew out of another thread concerning knock down power. Questions came up about the difference in power (gas expansion and ignition capability) between small pistol magnum v. small pistol regular primers. Specifically, I was asking if magnum primers might have increased capability to clear a squib, in the absence of powder, such as a failed powder drop. That obviously depends on a number of factors, like barrel length, bullet material density, bullet weight, barrel dimensions, etc. But given equal conditions, are the magnums really more powerful, and how much so. Does anyone have any data or personal experimentation comparing the performance of the two types? ---And while we're at it, how about differences between regular and match grade products. Skip brand differences for now. Let's just talk Federal products, since I think most of use them. Your thoughts and experience, please. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
