I thought I'd post this here among the friendlies (let's see how quickly the non gapers show up). A lunch, I went to a gun shop and picked up the free 2010 Federal Premium Ammo catalog. Always interesting browsing. On page 37 they had some GAP stats (right next to that old ancient round that will not be named ). I had always seen higher velocity and muzzle energy out of the GAP (even when the GAP is measured with a 4" barrel vs a 5" barrel of the hmmmmmm). What I hadn't seen before is the bullet drop numbers. GAP also stays flatter out to 100 yrds. Pat yourself on the back for picking a great round.
