What many don't understand about comps (physics rather) is that hotter/higher pressure is going to yield more to the comp's design. Mo comp is not mo better w/ weak range ammo. Where it pays dividends is trying to get a carry rig (smaller gun/shorter grip) to run better and more like a long slide...if the shooter is able to exploit such benefits.
Though I will say, it's a clue that a lot of these mid/upper-mid tier instructors who were super into "Roland special" stuff a few years ago are seen shooting a lot more 17/34 size guns on the flat range with no comps. I wouldn't be shocked if comp popularity once again nosedives in a few years due to some of the misunderstandings and poor designs out there.
