    Have you ever considered making a graph from your patterning program showing the relationships between pattern, energy and ballastic curve for different shot sizes, chokes, and velocities?

    A graph with these variables would require three dimensions on each axis. That would slow down even Neil.

    Brian, I think that fact that a target is hit by but a small part of the total energy in the load makes a project like this pretty meaningless.

    Graphs are often the best way to convey numbers but when the numbers don't mean much, neither do the graphs. See USA Today for many examples every week. But that multidimensional stock market one they run every now and then is fascinating though I've never been able to make heads or tails of it.

    Neil,

    The market goes up and the market goes down. That is all anyone can be sure of. It is best to follow the advice given by the Baron de Rothchild in 1929, that the surest way to wealth is through real estate. HMB
