Any experience with this gentlemen, looking for solid data as to whether or not there are any issues. How much more oomph does the imp have on the standard. My build will be sporting a 28-30in barrel.
Ive explored this option too and i just dont see a great advantage in this. Most of the taper is already blown out and u will gain 150-200fps at the moost from what ive read. Fireforming the cases is more work than its worth if u ask me. Itll cut your barrel life back from an already relatively short life to begin with!
But thats only my opinion.
