Your question is very simple and can be almost fully answered with two words:
If you have an extremely fast-burning powder (like Bullseye or WST), the bullet will reach it's max velocity much quicker.
If you're using a slower burning powder (li...

My 870 purchased 3 years ago has been a good shotgun. The finish was garbage but I expected that for $350. Besides that, it's good to go. Nothing a little spray paint can't fix.
But I agree the QC has gone to shite since freedom group got them. I hope their new plant opening in Bama turns the tide...

If a gun store decides to sell this pistol, they are basically signing their own death certificate. I refuse to shop anywhere that sells bull shite like this and I'm sure other gun owners share the same sentiment.

FWIW LA already has both of these laws. We may have slightly more expensive CC fees and some other BS, but for the most part, LA has great gun laws.
