Bullet setback isn’t something I’ve thought much about. But after our man Tyler sent me the link to this video, I took a look at the rounds in my two primary carry guns, a P3AT and a CW9.
Maybe there was a slight amount of setback on the first round in my CW9. Or maybe that was just the standard deviation you’ll find in any two factory rounds. If there was a difference, it was no more than a millimeter. Then again, I rarely unload and reload my guns.
But for those of you who unload and reload regularly, do you check for setback? And if you find it, does it make sense to ‘burn’ those high pressure rounds at the range as he does?
