    I would like to test some ammo out of short barrels. I found Clear Ballistics. Are you familiar with the quality of their products. If not can you recommend another company?

    Should I get 10 or 20%? I don't understand why they offer more than one formula

    There is strong sentiment in the professional community that the product is less relevant that the formula FBI uses.

    What are my options for estimating performance of particular ammo in a short barrel?

    Speer Gold Dot in 124 grain +P and 124 grain +P Short Barrel, and 147 grain HST have earned a reputation for expanding well with good penetration from sub-four-inch barrels.

    I am looking to see if various 300blk rounds will provide sufficient penetration and expansion from a 5.5" barrel. if not gel, suggestions?

    Do a Google search for the recommendations of Dr. Gary K. Roberts.
