Great post. I've seen tests where a particular ammo does really well out of a 3" barrel, and fairly poorly out of a 4.5" barrel. Which makes sense when I read this, because more velocity isn't necessarily better. If the round was designed

bottled water is nothing special, it is mostly 'purified' tap water and bottles add to our problems. I drink from the tap and use my own Zojirushi/Thermos to carry it in.

Publix isn't high on everything and Walmart isn't cheap on everything. You have to be a savvy shopper or you'll pay more no matter what. WM didn't make all those people billionaires because they gave everything away.

I bought 3 bottles. One to use in the car (as per the directions) and one to split across the Auto trans and P/S. I still have one bottle. I saw no change positive or negative on the car and a negative impact on my wallet.
