Sturgeon's Random Ammo-Related Bullshit Thread

Recommended Posts

Hmmm ... So that .375 cartridge kinda bridges the gap between 7.62x51 and .50 BMG with terminal performance leaning towards the HEI .50 and cartridge weight closer to the 7.62. I think ideas like this should be government funded and further explored in laboratories where you can discover things that are non-obvious in theory.

Model test for a new super-light bullet design. The 6.35x43mm SCHV, firing a 70gr projectile at 3,300 ft/s from a 14.5" barrel:

Based on the 6.8 SPC case. Weight in brass is 14 grams, much lighter than most other proposals of this caliber. Still, ballistics for this bullet look good so far.
