Just to make sure, you do understand that velocity is proportional to average pressure in the bore and not the peak pressure. So it can't tell you if the pressure is safe. Moreover, even if it could, its not that hard of circumstances to make a chronograph read off by 50 fps. Fine for comparing SD's and duplicating your own test load, but not accurate enough to be sure your peak pressure matches some other gun's peak pressure with the same velocity even using the same powder.
