Was wondering what the approximate price would be to have ballistic testing done on shotgun shells?

I have used Tom Armbrust on several occasions to test non-tox & so have other members here @ SGW. Not sure what his rates are now on per shotshell tested, but a few years ago it was $5 per round which is a steal.
FYI, my testing was 12g loads of steel shot, 3 to 5 different recipes x's 5$ shells each.
Post receipt & testing complete, He will send you the results via snail mail, not email, and will follow-up with a call so be sure to include your tel # so he may contact you.
Tom can be contacted via email to:"[email protected]".
If you elect to use his service you'll find that he is a really sharp guy & hell of a nice person.

Precision Reloading and Tom Armbrust are both the same price.

$5.00 per shell.

I believe that they also have a minimum size of each batch, likely to be 5 shots.

Stuck-N-Kali,

You need to call Precision Reloading.

That statement has been up on their website for a bit. I called about 10 days ago and inquired. I was told to send in the loads and they shot them last Friday.

I posted the results on SGW on Saturday, April 3rd.
