It sure would be nice if we could get an up-dated version of the study. One thing to remember is, the bullet choices are all better for all of the rounds, so the ranking of the rounds shown will likely be similar.It would be nice if they updated the loads. 3" 12-gauge slug, .35 Whelen 250 or 280 grain, .44 mag. 300 grain. .300 Win mag. with a better bullet selection. I see that the .358 Win. was ranked higher than the .350 Rem. with higher velocity. I wonder if the results would be different with better bullet selection.
The 7600 in .35 Whelen came out in 1988 in .35 Whelen and I snatched the first one I could find. It was my selection as it points the same as my 870 and I am left-handed. It is the fastest pointing rifle I have.
Nice article though. Lots to analyze in there.
Its the newer rounds, that are not shown at all, that's what we just don't know much about. I assume, they fall in where they are expected too. Because the principles of bullet performance have not changed, I'm not sure there are going to be any upsets.
