Thanks Drew. I just picked up a collection of DG Journals Vol's 3 to 17. I will get you page #'s as I read the articles.
Volume 10 Issue 4 Finding Out for Myself. part 2 page 21.
Incredible reading, insane testing before she blew.

Sherman recommends reading part 1 in Volume 10 issue 2 before reading part 2 page 9.

What are the odds of Sherman Bell or the Double Gun Journal producing a book of all the Bell testing articles?

It is worth pointing out that Tom Armbrust had a hand in that endeavor as well. I believe retired now, but he used to do ballistic testing. I sent him a bunch of loads a few years back for pressure testing in an effort to find a bargain alternative to RST and the like.

It was eye-openning to see the variance within loads in the SAME BOX by some manufacturers.

Very slim, I'd think.

Larry Potterfield provided most of the guns for the testing. Great articles by Sherman Bell

DGJ has their third Index & Reader coming out. Maybe a distillation of Bell’s findings would make a dandy reference piece

Tom has not retired. He is in the shotshell pressure testing business just as much as ever.
