Re: Very Low Drag Bullet design / turned solids
Good luck getting the perfect shape such as sear-haack, Von Karman to load and shoot as expected. That long boat tail displaces powder and is harder to seal in the barrel. When it leaves the muzzle the blast around the bullet tends to destabilize the bullet.
Check out the corbon web site. Rebated boat tails may be the best of both worlds. Banded bullets seem to seal better in the bore. Again, talk to Noel Carlson, he is well educated in this area and likes to push known boundaries. Where you are headed may need new propellants, new barrels with different metals, coatings and twist profiles. Ballistics and terminal performance are fascinating!
