i know what you are talking about. But at least in my mind, it works like this: get very strong brass, get a strong action, get a strong barrel and just try it. If it not work, make changes until it will work.No thanks way to over bore and cant use the capacity brass wont handle the pressure. Produced by useable capacity if you down load to to handle the pressure it will have ignition problems
Hey Dan! Like I said, “I wish I still had the Lahti that I rebuilt to play with it and shoot it. It is/was pretty cool!”The 375 Warner was the first iteration of our cartridge. The design was taken from the 14.9, with permission from the owner. JH is indeed correct; 3550 was easily done but at the expense of barrel life. At that point, we had no idea barrel like would be that short, specially since we enlisted the help of a company specializing in internal ballistics. So we made the obvious move to increase cross sectional bore density and necked it up to 416. It has about 20gr more capacity than the Barrett and will thake a 550gr projectile to 3100fps on the top end.
The fact that others on this post continue to make false statements about a variety of facts is discouraging. I'd actually venture to say that components for these larger than 50cal cartridges are easier to get than the smaller stuff. Probably because there are fewer people trying to use them.
Frank Green... we need to have a convo on this stuff. I had no ide you were into the bug cartridges to the extent you posted.
would love to hear how duplex load works. Is it something like loading fast powder first and then slower powder on top of it? So that the large amount of powder is ignited better?So do I think it is possible for them to hit a velocity around 3700ish? I’ll say yes. There are more powder options out there then 20 years ago. Depending on bullet weight and also possible if using a duplex load….I’ll say yes it’s possible.
Yes you have it correct. Even the 20x138b solothurn round from the factory is a duplex type load. Main charge in a sack sat on top of a smaller charge in a sack against the primer.would love to hear how duplex load works.
