I was most interested in the affect on recoil. My humble impression, was that it might depend on lots of other factors. I’ll look in our online community for the subject heading on recoil and ask about it there:

Every time I see this topic, I keep thinking it is going to explain the differences between barley and other grains, such as oat, wheat and rye and their use in production of quality beverages. :rofl:

The next thought is on the actual types of powder, not bullet weights.

Yeah, no, that is not what I think of in relation to cartridges. More like burn rates and physical characteristics, such as ball, flake, stick, etc.

Definitely a solid high-wheat bourbon with a little rye and barley.

On a more serious note, anybody see any ballistics on the 124-grains Federal Punch? Curious how it’s different than HST.
