does a low brass pattern expand faster than a high brass? ie whould a low brass shell be better on close shots like quail?
Lex Talio said:On the question of Velocity vs Patterns......We found at the factories that a velocity near, or slightly below, the speed of sound gave the most even patterns, no matter what the shot size.
FYI THE APPROX SPEED OF SOUND CAN BE CALCULATED AS 1090FT/SEC PLUS 2T, T BEING THE TEMPATURE IN DEGREES F. THEREFORE IF THE OUTSIDE TEMP IS 80 DEGREES THE SPEED OF SOUND COULD BE ESTIMATED TO BE 160 PLUS 1090 OR EQUAL to 1250 FT PER SECOND AND LA DE DA DA!!!!!
Hope this helps
