S1, I\'m curious...

I have no doubt you're involved in something...I just haven't figured it out yet. Powdered tungsten core bullets? Would you be so kind as to clue us in a bit. Are you producing rifles/ammo/components? Are they available to the public? Maybe the rest of the members know, but I'm thinking "Who is that masked man?" [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Can you describe the bullets referenced above? BC/SD/caliber/weight?
BTW, I understood before the fact the difference sniping and suppression. I seldom used the mini-gun for supression though. They were an even match for the 12.7mm, and I consider that a point target. Supression was what the Cobras did to support me.
Thanks for your reference to the books in the other post. There is a LOT of confusion and superstition on the subject of external ballistics. Know any others?

max,

Sorry to step into this, but the powder tungston core bullets were available to civilians. They were very expensive though. We called 'em Oak Ridge bullets, as they were made in Oak Ridge, TN. I think it was Powell River Labratories making them, and I don't belive they are still on the market.

Wow,

a lot of editting in this thread [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

S1,
I "assume" you know John Chubb. You ever send rounds down range with him?

I shoot at Oak Ridge a few times a year. If you come out for the State or Regional LR championship let me know,, I'll buy ya a beer and a pizza at Big Ed's.
