You are right! I'm no engineer, I just fix things they $hit-up!

CatShooter, I'm surely glad that God doesn't take your attitude towards us because if he did we'd be toast. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Opinions are best left to things that deserve them... like which are better, blonds or brunettes, pancakes or French toast?

Things like science are best studied - it is a creation of God, and to insult it like some do, is to insult God's work!

Re: 5mm smc

So is there any science in the theory that short and fat provides better accuracy or is that BS too ? Is it just the small rifle primer ?
Guess the .222 wasn't short and fat and that was the king of benchrest for a long time.

Speaking for my self, I know where I'm standing, but I don't know if you would understand since it has nothing to do with sience. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

"For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Re: 5mm smc


I submit you know more about internal ballistics then I do so please explain something to me. IF all powder in a case burns instantly, why do we have different burn rate powders?

Also, why is it that I can see unburnt powder on the shooting platform when I shoot my some extremely high capacity, smallbore rounds with shorter barrel lengths?

I am sure you have seen this as well, just curious why that happens if the powder all burns in the case instantly??

Not flaming, just looking to learn and find out why this happens?

Also, if you have ever shot one of those worthless short barreled 50 BMG rifles, ya know the ones with 16" barrels, they blow unburnt powder all over hell. Why??

Re: 5mm smc


For any given cartridge the heavier the bullet the more recoil. Can you argue that? What I meant to come across is that in similar capacity cases the shorter fatter one will accelerate a smaller lighter powder plug for less time which will generate less recoil. I do not subscribe to your theory that all the powder ignites at once. Maybe in small capacity cases but when we are talking big magnum cartridges you can see powder exit the barrel. What are hang fires? Please explain.

Re: 5mm smc

Rather than get involved again in this debate, I decided to spend the morning inventing a nearly free Podloc for the Harris bipod. The total cost will be under a penny. Plus I am feeling so much better after venting my spleen on Silvertip for posting in the wrong section. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
