Understanding the Summary Data

High: This represents the highest velocity in the recorded string of shots.

Low: This represents the lowest velocity in the recorded string of shots.

E.S.: Extreme Spread - this is the difference in velocity between the highest velocity shot and the lowest velocity shot.

Ave: Average - this is the average velocity of the string of shots.  This is the number to look at to compare whether velocity is increased overall, or decreased overall by a change in a variable.

S.D.: Standard Deviation - S.D. Is a mathematicall way of expressing how close most of the shots are to the average.  The lower the Standard Deviation is, the more consistent the velocity is.

95%: This is an easier to understand way of expressing consistency.  Statistically, there is a 95% chance than a given shot will vary this amount or less from the average. 
 
 

Sound level readings taken with stock barrel, hand fired on test stand.  Readings taken 10 feet from muzzle, approximately 45 degrees off-axis from the direction of fire (45 degrees to the right of the aim-point.)
