OK, now I am confused:

I know what the SAAMI actual test specs are for

The 5.56:
52,000 CUP (page 14)
55,000 psi (page 19)

The 308Win:
52,000 CUP (page 16)
62,000 psi (page 21)

Has ANYone done SAAMI-geometry* pressure (psi) tests on NATO-spec ammunition?
Until then, we're comparing apples and oranges when we quote presure specs.

*(Not C.I.P. geometry. See Post#9 above)
