on monday i took my .45 T/C Omega to the range to try out a new load. i was using knight 150gr HP sabots and 150 gr of Goex FFG clear shot. does anyone know how i can get the calculations on the muzzle velocity and muzzle engergy of that load (and maybe the trajectory)? in case anyone has the software at home the Omega has a 28" barrel. thanks!

You can't calculate the velocity. You need to shoot over a chronograph. After you have the velocity, the rest can be calculated.
