I'll probably pursue similar testing once I get myself comfortable with this setup. Still needs tweaking.
I think we should make this less about the personalities, and more about the data, science, and procedure. Also, it looks like Bryce was involved in this one if you watch the video.
Like I said, good data is *very* hard to find on this. Nobody does proper testing.
If all his equipment and handling is faulty, then the results should reflect that. His errant results will just be a tiny blip in a sea of results...
Ö if we had more results to compare against. Which we donít. Because their test(s) is(/are) constructed so that practically nobody is willing or able to perform it. Thatís really my biggest beef with those guys -- their inability to construct testing with the intention of it being reproduced and validated by others.
So right now, I have only my own results to compare against, and they seem to be in the same ballpark, despite being completely independently performed.
We simply need more independent testing.
Another curiosity to note:
I donít know who these guys are, but looking over their numbers (which sadly do not include an Automag), it does look like they went to some pains to get roughly accurate numbers. Assuming that, I think that the old rule of thumb of 10 shots per ci for 3k, and 15 shots per ci for 4500, is based on old blowback style efficiency, which is understandable, but on the conservative side.
