DESTRUCTIVE LOAD PRESSURE DATA!!!

THESE LOADS EXCEED SAAMI SPECS. THEY ARE INTENDED TO RESULT IN
CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE FIREARM AND/OR THE RELOADED COMPONENTS AS
A MEANS TOWARD COMPILING LOAD PRESSURE DATA. [/B]

Power Pistol book load 4.8 gr 90 gr XTP .960" 1105 fps 21.5k psi
I did 6.8 gr 90 gr JHP Gold Dot 1473 fps 39.4k psi
[at 5 gr .0015" bulge, at 6.8 gr .003" of case bulge]

Problems?
The H110 and AA#9 would not compress and bent the bullet and fattened
the bullet from .355" to .360" this wastes allot of 147 gr XTP bullets.
The LIL GUN got wimpy at high compression
The Berretta bit me me on the web of my right hand.
The little 1934 is much more accurate than the P11.
Power Pistol is easily the loudest.
