With business, family, and the substantial amount of time required to maintain this blog, I have very little time for forums.  There is, however, one forum that I try to reserve some time to peruse on a daily basis and that is 10mm Firearms.  Hunter Elliot recently posted a link to a very thorough article on .45 ballistics with some nice historical perspective.

Here are some other links to .45 auto test results (velocity and gel tests, not water jugs).
