You must be the forum bully by the way you post your frustrations. Bully's don't like wise asses being smarter than the dumb asses they are. They'll use bad information to make themselves look good. For example.......

The velocity of sound in 416 stainless steel is about 14,900 fps or about 2.822 mps or about 10,159 mph. That's quite a bit different that the 13,333 mph you claim. Lots of internet sites have the info to show you that.

And grade school math can calculate what a countoured finished barrel will weigh within 1/4th of an ounce.

Sorry backwoods83, you're wrong on too many issues. Too bad you don't have the wherewithall to realize that. If you ever get control of your egos, you'll probably be a nice guy and definitely be a lot smarter.

Re: 300WIN Velocity

Yeah you're going to get within a 1/4 ounce not knowing what kind of crown or its depth if recessed, how much shoulder it has, what its thread size and pitch are, and its chamber dimensions, ok, I believe you, your einstien. Then I guess you assume all 416R SS stock is identical. Then you want to argue about resonance, which has nothing to do with frequency, it is a measurement of the time "dwell" in which it takes to go dormant "settle, and with changing size and shape it becomes less predictable. Hell what do I know, every body that puts these things up to read has to be wrong, except you of course. Oh, and bully, this was posted to the op originally, then you decided to be an *****, so who's really the bully?

Re: 300WIN Velocity

Look, I didn't choose this setup but I don't mind the super heavy barrel either. I don't know anything about frequencys and harmonics what I do know is if the barrel is good you can just about always find something that the gun likes. My question was only one of FPS with the extra length In a "mag" i don't believe it will slow down until well over 40" as we tested it once by starting long and cutting back and shooting at each inch. I also know that every barrel is different I have had FAST guns and dogs too. for the record this gun shot 190 hunting VLD's @ 3190 and produced some sub 1/4" groups at 200 yards without much work. It all comes down to MATH and 1+1 doesn't always equal 2 when it comes to guns

I hate to say it, but you are confusing miles per hour(mph) with miles per second(mps) which at equal velocity will travel 1/360th of the distance. 14,900 fps is still only 1015.2 mph though. (actually is 10,152 mph- Yx60x60 conversion to mph from mps, not6x60 like i did in a brain fart)
The basic problem is you are both arguing a moot point since all rifles will behave slightly differently. A longer barrel will tend to whip more and be more harmonically unstable. With today's barrel tolerances and the quality of bullets a whippy barrel can likely be overcome though.

There's 3600 seconds in an hour, not 360. 60 seconds times 60 minutes = 3,600 seconds in an hour. I corrected my earlier post to show it. I posted those incorrect numbers to see who was good enough to see the error in technicalities. Thanks, Lefty, for noticing.

Yeah, I noticed, then I messed up myself and went 6x60 not60x60.... GGGrrrrr.
gotta love a brain fart.
