bb, how'd you scrounge that up? I can't find anything more than 2 days old. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
The above referenced link + a thing that Kirby was doing, got me going on the "flash tube" idea. Which by the way is about to start up again. Initial trials show there there are noticeable differences w/the Frontal Ignition but I gotta get a decent method of measuring barrel temp over the length of the barrel.
RE: the above link and elliptical shoulder design
I wonder how much of the primer flash makes it through how much of the powder in the case?
From my experience I think that I can see in that web site a whole bunch of initial excitement (been there and done that) with some possible trials that probably gave results that were no worse than conventional designs and possible some a bit better (but compare against this Link
and what do you get?)
It seems like the shooting world just needs more superior craftsmen to bring the current cartidge designs up to their potential in shooting platforms, then someone can do something innovative to take things to the next level.
Or it may all be in the marketing as with the Weatherby shoulder design???
