What I'd be interested in learning, would be the percentages of *successful *damage, inflicted on the enemy, using AP vs Premium.

Let's say you drive a Type 59, in a tier 8 battle where you fire and hit 10 shots (for simplicity's sake) of AP and end up with 2 bounces.

Out of a potential 2800 in damages, the two bounces cost you -560 so you end up with total damages of 2240 (I know that's never exact in real life, but I'm generalizing for simplicity)

Now lets look at just using Premium, same 10 hits, but with *zero bounces*, gives you 10 x 240 = 2400 in damages

If you only bounced one shot, the differences would favor using AP 2520 vs 2400 using Premium, with zero bounces, but once you bounce more than one shot, AP can no longer catch up to the damage inflicted by Premium ammo. AP with two bounces = 2240 vs 2400 with Premium and no bounces.

So basically, if you're bouncing 20% or more of your shots, it's more effective to just fire Premium all the time. Obviously, this doesn't apply to magicals, who always correctly switch between ammo types on the fly and never bounce any shots ever, but for dumb hacks like me, just firing Premium all the time, allows me to do more damage, than to continue attempting to switch back and forth between ammo types.
