re: A rule of thumb on changing point of impact on fixed sighted guns
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 9/17 at 9:14 pm
HFP, [quote]I think there has to be a correct ratio for the muzzle flip to affect point of impact. Weight of gun (absorb recoil), shooters grip (absorb recoil), barrel length (time bullet has to escape), velocity of bullet (time bullet has to escape). I believe there is a ratio that once passed, wi...

HMM, [quote]A nonconcentric bore was thought to provide more accuracy and batter harmonics. [/quote] I'm not familiar w/ the concept of a non-concentric bore. I need to read up on that. Having said that, there a large number of things that contribute to gun accuracy. May just be internet lore, but ...

[quote]The OP did not mention a pistol and it sure as hell did not mention a revolver.[/quote] ICS, you are correct. I stand corrected. From my personal experiences of shooting 44 Mags and 44 Specials in the same handgun, that's what I immediately thought of w/o even thinking about it. All my discu...

[quote]In the OP you said that slower rounds shoot higher. Well that is definitely not true especially if the bullet was the same weight. There would be less recoil with the slower bullets.

[quote]Energy is mass x speed.

[quote]Slower rounds shoot higher. Faster rounds shoot lower. ETA: For identical projectiles.[/quote] This statement is true. Like weagle99, I've always heard it said that this occurs because recoil of the slower moving load has caused the barrel to move slightly upwards in recoil before ...

It may be my imagination, but did it appear to anyone else that as Les Miles walked up to her for the halftime interview she was taller than him. But during the interview she was same height or maybe a little shorter than him. I think she squatted just a little at the beginning of the interview so a...

[quote]Hot loads need to be in Ruger Blackhawks (full size), Freedom Arms, or TC Contenders.[/quote] Excellent point. You can also add the Ruger Redhawk and Super Redhawk to that list, as well.
