I'm no QuickLOAD expert but would happily help any way I can. What about modifying the "Friction-proofed" setting to account for the reduced friction down the barrel. It seems to me it would be similar to Moly/HBN. Or possible bearing length? I know some of the bullets act different than others in the program. In the program the ELD-M seems to have less friction than the Nosler ABLR especially and even RDF and Bergers. I need to dive into the bullet files and see how they are different.I'm seeing 50, maybe 60 fps advantage for the AH after optimizing for powder charge to the same peak pressure. Are there other reasons besides engraving pressure that would cause this bullet to achieve higher velocities? I don't see any setting for the amount of friction of the bullet after it's moving down the barrel. Would this even be a contributing factor, and if so, do any QL experts know if this setting is user adjustable? It doesn't appear to be. Any other thoughts?
