What SMGs are actually good? Most modern models seem like simple plastic shit that's good only for getting money from mall ninjas. Post your favorite models, discuss mechanisms and features you like in them, etc. What calibers would you wants them in?

a138e2  No.628554

Also, how viable do you think bullpup SMG would be? It seems like bullpups go well with longer barrels, while is a compact package of an SMG they'd only add weight and make them bulkier, while collapsible/folding stock could work just as well.

Does SITES Spectre double action trigger offer anything to the design? What's its use and why don't any rifles have this?

I would like 10mm auto for a subgun with a foldable stock and a total overall length without stock of 12 inches, with a direct impingement or short piston system and reinforced bolt so that you can load the cartridge to it's proper norma magnum level now and forever, and an adjustable gas system for anything less. Barrel should be ballard cut, featuring a stair-step front sight with an adjustable rear mounted as far back on the upper as it can go (sighted at 75m), and the barrel should be ported 90 degrees from the sight. Ashwood fore-end should be hard-mounted to the upper, and the barrel allowed to float. Grip and trigger should be mounted in the first 3 inches of lower, or mounted in the last six inches if bullpup config, set at 3.5lbs, and the gun should be able to use glock mags. Finally, it should be easily field stripped. The idea for this gun is as a woodsman's gun. It's mostly out of the way, can do a lot of fighting, and put meat in the pot.

You could get a bit of barrel length from that but you'd probably gain more bulkiness and weight from that. There feels like diminishing returns from using bullpup the shorter barrel you go. The closest thing you can do is locate mag in the grip(think UZI) instead of the back of the receiver like an MP5, though all it does is move the grip forward so you have less space for your left hand without extending receiver/handguard, still requiring a stock but having receiver closer to your face and limit your grip/mag choice to fit both(not a problem with 9mm but once we go to 10mm or even double feed things change).

So basically go with magazine in the grip for super compact options that take place of a pistol/sidearm(that uses pistol length barrel) and use a proper grip behind the magazine for longer barrel, proper double(or quad) stack double feed magazine and serve as the main gun.

Good, though something more suitable for a paired handgun like 357sig(or improvement of it like 9dillon or similar) would be better in most cases.

>foldable stock

Sure, why not

>total overall length without stock of 12 inches

Will you cut the barrel to reach that?

>direct impingement or short piston system

Why? You could have virtually any system and you choose a gas one. Various blowbacks shine in SMGs, there's so much that can be done and you pick a gas operates system. Really?

>you can load the cartridge to it's proper norma magnum level now and forever

It's an SMG, man. A small rifle that shoots pistol rounds. How weak should you make a rifle to make it not able to withstand pressures that a handgun can?

>ballard cut

Why not polygonal?

>stair-step front sight

Front? Not rear? maybe i'm misunderstanding but how does this thing look? DDG shows me stairs.

>as far back on the upper as it can go

No reason not to.

Is that really necessary? Why not get an appropriate muzzle device instead?

>Ashwood fore-end

That's kinda imo.

>hard-mounted to the upper

Ok

>barrel allowed to float

It won't with a gas system but most SMGs do have these, sure.

>Grip and trigger should be mounted in the first 3 inches of lower

Yeah, why wouldn't you do that?

>or mounted in the last six inches if bullpup config

Ok, though maybe you should leave a bit more space for a forward grip.

>set at 3.5lbs

Make the mechanism simple and modifiable enough to either make it adjustable or have options.

>the gun should be able to use glock mags

Hell no. Double stack single feed mags are cancer. Either use single stacks or use double feed, it's possible and the only reason it's not used is stupidity and laziness. If we care about actual characteristics instead of brand names and fanboyism then double feed mags are: easier to reload, cheaper to manufacture, more reliable, simpler, have more parts compatibility and easier to interchange. Do not support the magazine jew that inflates magazine prices.

>it should be easily field stripped

Ar-style push pins would be good enough. No need to turn it into fancy puzzle box with bells and whistles.

Submachine gun was invented by general Thompson to market his automatic weapon. Machine pistol would make a lot more sense, after all most languages use that term for this category of weapons. It's similar to how German and English uses Sturmgewehr (and its translation), which was a propaganda term. Maschinenkarabiner (machine carbine) would be a much better name.

A pistol action given automatic fire capability isn't a submachine gun. A shortened rifle is also not a submachine gun. If those things were true, then that would necessarily imply that the Glock 18, the AKS-74U, and the Colt Commando are all submachine guns. Since all of those are closed bolt designs, two are rifle caliber, and one has a magazine that feeds into the grip, then we must assume these are all features which are acceptable on SMGs by definition and not belonging to other types of designs. By logical extension we can determine that submachine guns are exactly the same thing as rifles, and pistols, despite a full century of historical and engineering knowledge lending towards the contrary, and all the world's pioneers of SMGs disagreeing with this implication.

>SMGs are only good for police duty where you do want to limit your firepower

Only in case of most modern ones using 9mm. If we take a better round things change a lot and reveal how close to SMGs our modern rifles are in terms of power. For example, 10mm from 13" barrel matches 5.56 from 16" and .357 magnum in 16" barrel(i'm not using SIG because it falls behind in longer barrels, let's imply that we have it improved to magnum levels or at least take .357 magnum rimless and use a revolver with a moon clip to call it "pistol") matches many 5.56 loads from 20" barrel and all but(maybe) the hottest loads from 18"-. Sure, there's still BC to consider but this still shows something.

>>628581

Paul Harrell has video on PCC where he shows that even 9mm ones can penetrate 3A body armor. Other than that, against level 4 your usual rifle rounds won't do either so unless you use a battle rifle with .308 AP(or does it stop even this?) you're out of luck and have to shoot someplace else, good thing the armor only protects his chest.

What is your definition of a submachine gun, machine pistol, pistol, rifle, etc?

>>628581

The point of a submachine gun is that it fires pistol ammunition. The point of a pistol is that you can use it effectively with one hand if you have to, and that greatly limits the cartridge. With all of that your only option would be 6.5mm CKJ, a Swedish cartridge based on 9mm Parabellum. But that has to use a tungsten core, which makes it way too expensive for a mere pistol cartridge.


a138e2  No.628585

>>628582

MP5K - 2kg

Sig MPX(gas operated) - 2.7kg

Beretta Cx4 Storm(16" barrel) - 2.5kg

Agram 2000 - 1.8kg

Jatmatic - 1.65kg

And these are not "machine pistols" that can easily weigh even less.

Type 79 also seems to use plastic receiver, compared to full metal ones in your examples. Its light weight might also cause durability problems(knowing chinks, especially) and paired with its EXTREME rate of fire at 1000rpm would be almost uncontrollable, limiting its use. Remember, most firearms are overbuilt and reducing fire rate is often done by increasing bolt weight.

> designed to fire from a closed bolt in semi and open bolt in full-auto

That's some high-level autism. If you can fire it from closed bolt in semiauto, go with it in full auto as well, it'll improve your accuracy and remove the need for this autism while the only disadvantage compared to open bolt would be a bit more heat but it's not a MG so who cares.

Pistol cartridges are useless even at 200m, so they shouldn't be the main weapon of an infantry squad even if you adhere to the 300m doctrine that dominates current thinking. And if they aren't the main weapon, then you are just adding an other weapon to the mix for no good reason.

Most of these guns are straight blowback that is the most straightforward and heaviest of blowbacks, to achieve ROF to matche type 79 we could have a polymer receiver thinned up open bolt gun with a lightened bolt and it'd prob weight almost the same if not less, using even lever-delayed would significantly decrease the weight required and gas-delayed blowback is the absolute lightest system you can get, though i'd better use it in pistols because of heat.

Heavier spitzer bullets. You can still use them in your pistol, albeit with more recoil, flash and drop and vice versa.

Wholeheartedly agree.

>And if they aren't the main weapon, then you are just adding an other weapon to the mix for no good reason.

It's still better than the successful m1 carbine as you use the same ammo as your issued pistols while removing the need to fiddle with the main rifle to please those in need of PDW so that you have to balance between GPMGs, snipers and service rifles only which can be done a lot easier because of longer barrels they all use with 6-6.5mm cartridge.

>That's a problem with the modern idea of the assault rifle, it's just a glorified submachine gun.

Well, not quite but i do agree.

These guns are a bit too old and dated for modern use though and 9x25ME would have a hard time fitting in the grip of a modern handgun when even 10mm does. I've thought on it and even did picrelated autism and posted it one one of the previous threads but nobody r8ednotice me senpai.

It's literally as long as 7.62 Tokarev, and that cartridge is longer than 10mm Auto. It obviously won't fit into a weapon designed for 9mm Parabellum, but you could redesign nearly any of them for it without changing the external dimensions. Like that relatively new chink pistol for 7.62 Tokarev that is otherwise a straight copy of an older Sig Sauer pistol.

>posted it one one of the previous threads but nobody r8ed

The problem is that you'd have to make this cartridge, load it into a pistol, and do some tests to figure out what it can really do. You could actually do it if you had 10mm Auto brass and reloading tools for .357 SIG. Making the barrel would be a bit trickier, but you'd just have to push the .357 SIG's tool down a bit deeper to cut the chamber.

There is the 7.5x28 round developed by BRNO that gets you to within ~10% of .30 carbine power out of a 6" barrel. It's also just a slightly lengthened and necked down 10mm.

If you really want to pierce armour you'll have to go the sabot route. Take a .475 Wildey magnum and load it up with m80A1 in a sabot and blast it at ~2400 fps out of a pistol and ~2650fps out of a smg.

And also

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Br%C3%BCgger_%26_Thomet_MP9 - 1.3-1.4kg

It seems most modern SMGs have given up on controllability and just reduce weight with increase of ROF. Kind of feels like the symbol of the decay of the weapon class.

>>628595

Yeah, that thread was the thing that pushed me to make this one, i wanted a bit more attention towards SMGs specifically but there's an overlap in the roles of the weapons, obviously.

>It's literally as long as 7.62 Tokarev

5.7 is even longer but it can pull this out because it's so thin. That's why there have been complaints about the size of 10mm double stack even though it's shorter. it's not as much about the design but about comfort and size - 10mm as a "full power" pistol cartridge in double stacks is fine(with proper design) but really stretching it, especially with double feed.

>The problem is that you'd have to make this cartridge, load it into a pistol, and do some tests to figure out what it can really do

Yeah, but i assumed that it'd be something inbetween 9x25 dillon and 357sig as it's almost perfectly in the middle in dimensions.

>You could actually do it if you had 10mm Auto brass and reloading tools for .357 SIG

Well, because of my flag you can see that i cannot, but there'd be issues with that - there's 9x25mm dillon that does exactly that - necks 10mm with a 357 sig die, while my cartridge requires to go beyond that as you lower the shoulder and prolong the neck and i'm unsure if you can even do this with 357 sig die. Can you push the die beyond that point?

Something between a pistol cartridge and a full rifle cartridge? Something like 5.56x45 or 5.45x39 or maybe 7.62x39? We can only hope that some enterprising genius gunsmith will stumble upon this answer and revolutionize the industry with small, light, low-recoil rifles effective at ranges out to 600 meters.

I'm inclined to agree with you, at least partially, although there are other things to consider such as many Slavic languages who have no original term for submachine guns and simply have a generic category for 'automatic weapons that aren't machine guns' (avtomat, samopal, etc.) which includes both subguns and carbines - in some rare cases even full length rifles. American society in general lends itself more towards a familiarity with guns, which is why we have several terms other nations and languages don't use; 'battle rifle' is a common example. Other peoples simply call it a rifle or use their 'assault rifle' analogue despite a full-power rifle cartridge overpowered and cumbersome for assault tactics.

This subject is always interesting to me because no language is as analytical about it as English, but ultimately there are so many things that blur definable lines (such as the ZK-383 which is either an SMG or an LMG, or the Villar-Perosa which is a pistol caliber aircraft machine gun) that it becomes a bit subjective and comes down to discussions of linguistics at times. It's a fun thing to autism about.

For example, the M1 Carbine is a rifle, but .30 Carbine is shaped like a pistol cartridge and performs similar to .357 Magnum… but its pressure curve was designed for the 18" barrel specifically, making it a definite rifle round.

>>628584

>pistol - a gun designed for use with one hand and no need for a stock, can have the magazine located in the grip or externally (or have a cylinder, etc)

>I was thinking .30 Carbine

.357 magnum can shoot 158gr bullet at the same velocities as 110gr 30 carbine does, resulting in more energy. 144gr 30carbine does have 2" less drop at 200yds than 158gr 357, though 170+gr magnum can probably match that, i dunno. .357 magnum is really a great cartridge, my favorite as well, even if only in theory.

>It feels like innovation in SMGs ended with the P90

In Russia they make AP pistol rounds with a steel penetrator that is separated from the jacket by polyethylene layer so that it stays in one piece when entering soft tissue and probably even expanding and when it hits a hard barrier the core separates from the jacket and punches through. They are very velocity dependent and not very aerodynamic, though, but it's a lot better than creating a whole new cartridge and weapons for that purpose.

I should have added, the Skorpion blends the machine pistol/SMG distinction, but I place it as an MP in my book specifically because of its design - the Czechs tuned its shape and weight balance for one-handed automatic fire because they wanted it to serve as both a rear echelon PDW style of weapon and a sidearm to a rifle, and included the recoil/rate of fire regulator feature to make that easy. Their choice of .32 ACP was clear for that too, since they had a large amount of 9mm Parabellum in their inventory and deliberately went with a weaker, more controllable round. But, they also included the stock for ranged shooting, which helped make it a less situational gun. Really, the Vz. 61 is a very unique weapon on its own, and I can't think of another thing that compares directly to it except for - maybe the HK MP7?

Pic related is a holster for carrying a Skorpion on the hip, to enable one-handed draws.

It feels like overly complicating things. Call anything that fires pistol cartridges and is longer than a handgun and/or capable of automatic fire an SMG and have subclasses like machine pistol for a pistol-sized or maybe with magazine inside the grip SMG and call a PCC any semiautomatic SMG. Other than that, just compare actual models and their traits to fit a special purpose. That'd simplify things a lot. I don't know where and how to push the term PDW in here, though.

I know that .30 Carbine isn't a particularly well designed cartridge but it and the gun it accompanied did introduce some interesting and fresh ideas into firearms design. Interesting nonetheless, has anybody ever put a .357 in a SMG? It's been put in autoloading pistols before with the Deagle brand Deagle and that Coonan pistol.

5.7 essentially feels like a more modern take on the same ideas and it essentially perfected balancing recoil, velocity, energy and AP potential for something roughly .30 Carbine sized, and at the same time it can also function as a pistol round.

>In Russia they make AP pistol rounds with a steel penetrator that is separated from the jacket by polyethylene layer so that it stays in one piece… They are very velocity dependent and not very aerodynamic, though

I've heard of them, sounds like a good solution to the problem. The velocity dependence doesn't sound like a big issue in the sub-100m distances you expect SMGs and pistols to be used, it sounds like it does the job 'good enough' to get it done. The primary issue I could see from being velocity dependent is that it would limit its potential when you'd want to go subsonic & suppressed with it, as it wouldn't carry too much energy and hence wouldn't do too much damage.

There was some Venezuelan abomination called "Tor" but that's it. Many attempts to copy it in rimless package have been made, with .357 sig being the most successful. There's also 357 magnum rimless and 357 maximum rimless that are made from 5.56 brass before it's formed and they fit into an AR and even sometimes called that way(.357 AR). Pistol caliber carbine manufacturers also slowly adopting 357 sig and i've heard that even some country wanted to issue it as their main cartridge, iirc.

>5.7 essentially feels like a more modern take on the same ideas and it essentially perfected balancing recoil, velocity, energy and AP potential

It's thinner and takes a lot less space in handguns that 30 carbine, has lower energy than 9mm, significant muzzle blast and either insufficient or overpenetration. It's main pros is weight, capacity and armor piercing ability, that's it, though i'd add the use of double stack and lever delayed as a personal preference because i really dig these engineering principles, despite their application. Paul Harrell has a great video on it and explains it a lot better and in more detail than me so if you're interested go watch it.

>it can also function as a pistol round

There's been pistols chambered in 30 carbine.

>The velocity dependence doesn't sound like a big issue in the sub-100m distances

Think of 30-50m instead, sub 100m are usually effective distances for 9mm and this one is basically an overpressured 9mm in one of the variants. There're also 9x21mm rounds that are more powerful and they boast penetration of 4mm of steel at 100m but there's not much data, lots of propaganda and even less info on how it'd translate into effectiveness so go figure, especially from an smg that turned out to be shitty. Overall, it's specialized ammo, not general purpose one and i'm still unsure if it's even capable of anything other than punching holes of at least its caliber and not icepick. It's a way to defeat body armor but i wouldn't put much faith into it beyond that point.

>>628668

Ah, i found the info the very best 9x21mm AP bullet penetrates IIIA body armor at 50m. Barrel length - 4.9". If you're using smg add 25m, i guess. If you're using 9x19 then it's less than that. Again, this is AP ammo, first and foremost, it'll do some damage where other would do none but it will perform slightly better than flat nosed FMJ at best if i understand anything.


a138e2  No.628672

>>628671

Also, the bullets are really light and seem to be pretty big and are seated deep in the casing because even the fancy 9x21mm has similar muzzle energy to your average 9mm load(no +p levels anywhere besides pressure).

I see the point in your distinctions, but they are too autstic for my taste.

The difference between MP and SMG is purely arbritary, and I don't see the point in adding more confusion with the "subcarbine" category.

Guns should best be described by role first, like LMG, GPMG and HMG.

You metioned the Skorpion as an example for MP, yet it is not a pistol at all, and was never designed as one. Neither was it intended to be.

All this pointless semantics is leading nowhere.

The MP18 was the first SMG by all definitions but was literally named "Machine Pistol 18".

I would tend to agree with >>628682, if there weren't some particularly autism with the MP5, like factory-zeroed sights only and the mags not being designed to be dropped.

All in all, it seems as though there just is no real need for more advancement in SMG tech anymore. If anything, the whole class is being swallowed up by the burgers pushing for "muh pistol calibre carbines", because apparently everything needs to be an AR-platform.

Plus, the latest "advancements" in that field, the MP7 and the Vektor, were just hot garbage. The first one because the round couldn't kill a late-stage cancer patient, and the latter is just so bad, I am convinced they designed it as a troll.

So a short MPX type weapon in 10mm?

Also, SMGs, at least ones like the regular MP5 are kind of obsolete in a world of good AR SBRs, especially for the average American, where the same tax stamps and hassle is required regardless of caliber.

However, if you're seriously worried about overpenetearion, and can ignore gun laws, modern SMG's like the P90 and MP7 have a place. The totally unsourced, third hand accounts I've heard from friends closer to the action say things to the effect of, "with a P90 or MP7 you can magdump a motherfucker really fast, and the odds are decent you'll need to"

Interesting thoughts, my borscht eating friend.

> something more suitable for a paired handgun like 357sig(or improvement of it like 9dillon or similar) would be better in most cases.

You missed the part where I had this in mind as a woods-gun. You do NOT go up against a big boi with a 9x19. Alaskans already use the mighty ten against polar bear.

>foldable stock

>Will you cut the barrel to reach that (length)?

Including chamber you can have a barrel length of 6-8 inches given that 10mm only requires 1.3 inches in order to reliably clear the action. Using a short, high compression strength spring with a telescoping bolt or underslinging the spring means that the action can be very small indeed, especially since….

>Why? You could have virtually any system and you choose a gas one. Various blowbacks shine in SMGs, there's so much that can be done and you pick a gas operates system. Really?

>It's an SMG, man. A small rifle that shoots pistol rounds. How weak should you make a rifle to make it not able to withstand pressures that a handgun can?

….it is much easier to make a smaller and lighter and stronger action by using a gas system. In order to deal with the amount of bolt-force from a properly loaded 10mm all day erryday, you would require a lot of tool-steel behind the chamber to not blow the gun the fuck apart, which also contributes to recoil and drastically slows fire rate and contributes to overall wear and tear on the gun. A gas system mounted an inch in front of the chamber can be adjusted to your ammo to give the correct amount of bolt travel instead of ramming it into your palm all the time.

>Why not polygonal?

Because cast bullets don't like polygonal.

>Front? Not rear? maybe i'm misunderstanding but how does this thing look? DDG shows me stairs.

Revolvers like the ruger bisley use a windage adjustable sight and a front sight that looks exactly like stairs from the front to give you absolute control over where your shot lands. I have no idea what the actual name for them is.

>Is that really necessary? Why not get an appropriate muzzle device instead?

With a gun this short, you need all the sight radius you can get. Adding a muzzle-brake means you're adding more length to a gun designed to be small, and slip on suppressors exist for being vewy qwiet.

>It won't with a gas system but most SMGs do have these, sure.

It will if you mount it only a very short distance after the chamber.

>Ok, though maybe you should leave a bit more space for a forward grip.

Combine trigger-grip with forward grip for this.

>Mags

It is easier to sell a gun that uses existing parts than to add your proprietary magazines into place.


a138e2  No.629112

>>629078

>I had this in mind as a woods-gun

Not really a good idea to limit yourself by that. A more versatile weapon would fit this but other roles as well nicely.

>Alaskans already use the mighty ten against polar bear

They also use the mighty 357magnum, especially since heavier bullets would offer better penetration and longer barrel more energy than any 10mm handgun.

>Using a short, high compression strength spring

It'd work but it's easier to increase the size of the weapon a bit and use a normal spring that's cheaper and would work just fine but whatever you want, it's not like we can't have different designs in the same class.

>a telescoping bolt

I don't like this, it'd shift center of gravity too much reducing handling characteristics of the gun and making the blot more complex both to machine, maintain and repair.

>it is much easier to make a smaller and lighter and stronger action by using a gas system

It's not, read the thread.

>In order to deal with the amount of bolt-force from a properly loaded 10mm all day erryday, you would require a lot of tool-steel behind the chamber to not blow the gun the fuck apart

And a gas system on a short barrel would fuck everything good that was left in the gun.

>Because cast bullets don't like polygonal.

Ok, your choice.

> a windage adjustable sight and a front sight

Could you post a picture, please? i found the thing but i still don't get how it helps or even whether i found the right thing. I'd also prefer easily swappable(like they do on handguns, why the fuck that's not standard) fixed front sights and adjustable rear peer sights.

>With a gun this short, you need all the sight radius you can get

You'll still probably not mount the sights on the muzzle. You could probably mount it on the handguard, even.

>Adding a muzzle-brake means you're adding more length to a gun designed to be small, and slip on suppressors exist for being vewy qwiet.

You could just cut your barrel down and have the same OAL if you need to, or go even shorter and have it integrally suppressed under the handguard.

>It will if you mount it only a very short distance after the chamber.

It won't, it'll also ruin the barrel harmonics in lengths this short. That's all if you somehow even manage this ugly abomination cycle.

>Combine trigger-grip with forward grip for this.

You still need to get your support hand somewhere - it's a bad idea to use your main hand for that. Unless you want to hold it to the rear with your left hand or are left-handed you want 3 common points to hold the gun with - shoulder, cheek and support hand. If you need to get space that much just get a forward grip like P90.

>It is easier to sell a gun that uses existing parts than to add your proprietary magazines into place.

And it'll be a lot easier when they jam, need to be reload in stressful conditions and spend less money. Don't support cancer because it's convenient, if you do the industry will forever be stuck with stupid shit that's only good for making the jews money.

MP5 and nothing else. SMGs are kinda obsolete for most purposes these days, as such what you chose isn't going to matter much but since it's not going to matter you may well just go for the objective best.

If you're looking for something to just have fun with MACs are there, Uzis are also objectively decent. The Beretta M12 is also good but most importantly it looks nice.

In the end, if you're going to go for an SMG go for something from WW2 because they're cool and that's about when they reached peak relevance.

In any case:

>most modern shit looks like it's simple plastic

If they're SMGs for civs they are for mall ninjas because serious shooters don't buy SMGs. Why would you? They're objectively useless.

SMGs exist for 3rd world police departments and sheer fun factor. Even the spec-ops niggers aren't using SMGs anymore. The AR-15 is The One Rifle to Rule Them All.

>Alaskans already use the mighty ten against polar bear

>It'd work but it's easier to increase the size of the weapon a bit

The first thing you do when you design anything is to ask what and why. A properly loaded 10mm subgun easily matches .357 mag in energy, with the added advantages of three point mounting and a higher ammo capacity for a similar form factor as a hunter's 8 inch barreled .357, and a similar draw time in hairy, close-in situations. This is why I am unwilling to compromise on size- any larger and you'd legitimately need it on a sling all the time, which makes it in the way if you need to do anything with two hands-such as if you were fishing and suddenly a hungry animal(s) likes the salmon you just hooked. A handgun might do it, a revolver definitely will, and a subgun exactly the same size, same or better power, better weapon retention and aiming plus far more ammo available means it's a superior weapon for this situation.

>I don't like this, it'd shift center of gravity too much reducing handling characteristics of the gun and making the blot more complex both to machine, maintain and repair.

It could be done with a conventional bolting system, as after 7" of barrel you still have five inches of action left- well and truely enough for a short springer action. The real advantage that a telescoping bolt system would have is that you could mount the action even further into the rear if you wanted to bullpup the gun and let it have even more barrel. Really, I'm open to either. Classic bolt as you say for easier machining where CNC machines are not available and easier field stripping, or a telescoping bolt where a bullpup is demanded.

>It's not, read the thread.

I did mate. The simplest answer is that high pressure cartridges DO NOT use blowback because it would send the bolt clean through the chassis.

>And a gas system on a short barrel would fuck everything good that was left in the gun.

How? AR/AK pistols don't seem to have issues here. If you can get 2-3MOA for this gun, you're golden here, as 10mm cuts a rainbow past 125 and requires careful aim- you're not going past 175 under any stretch.

>Could you post a picture, please?

Can do, though I admit it's a kinda shitty pic for purpose. Basically pic related. The front sight has a series of steps leading up to the top of the sight that you can clearly align with the rear, making any gun fitted with these sights able to drop compensate real damned quick.

>You'll still probably not mount the sights on the muzzle. You could probably mount it on the handguard, even.

You want less radius so that you can pick off targets from a distance with the given sight setup. A stair-step mounted up close would look like a block in front of your target.

>You could just cut your barrel down and have the same OAL if you need to, or go even shorter and have it integrally suppressed under the handguard.

Doable considering barrel lengths are just a matter of where you put the parting off tool after rifling, though you'd be turning it into a short and quiet kebab removal tool also fine by me than a survivalist's short gun.

>It won't, it'll also ruin the barrel harmonics in lengths this short. That's all if you somehow even manage this ugly abomination cycle.

Provided you can mount the section of barrel that has the gas system to the chassis the rest of the barrel is not affected. Direct impingement varmint rifles exist, and the gun cycling is just a matter of adjusting the flow until it gives you the result you want.

>You still need to get your support hand somewhere

>And it'll be a lot easier when they jam,

These two I am willing to simply fold on because furniture design can be played with. We could have a proprietary double feed mag mounted forward of the trigger-grip for ease of manufacture, or go balls to the wall and have the same mag mounted inside the grip with a telescoping bolt for up to nine inches of barrel length for the same form.

I'm appreciating every single criticism you can come up with, as it means I have to really refine and defend the design choices I want and redo where you've pointed out it might not work.

Keep slapping my shit.

Unless Attacker has body armor(that'd only limit the effectiveness but would still fail unless its hard so it wouldn't matter) it limits overpenetration and longer barrel offers quite a step up in lethality and stock, greater sights radius and all these benefits of a long weapon grant a huge step up in firepower, precision, controllability and ease of usage, especially in stressful situations. You can also throw a red dot/holo sights in there as a great addition.

>Keep slapping my shit

I'd be right happy to

>A properly loaded 10mm subgun easily matches .357 mag in energy

Somewhat true. Based on the data i have 10mm is more limited from longer barrels than 357. 10mm reaches its max at 13" barrel at nearly 1kft-lbs(buffalo bore 180gr, the most powerful one i have data on), while 357 magnum reaches the same energy from 9" for 125gr and same 13" for heavier loads(140-158gr) while continuing to grow at least 100ft-lbs from longer barrels for heavy loads and 250ft-lbs more for lighter ones.

>advantages of three point mounting

What is this?

>higher ammo capacity for a similar form factor as a hunter's 8 inch barreled .357

Yeah, though i was thinking more along the lines of "357 in a semi auto form factor", otherwise it's out of competition despite all its goodiness. I've already mentioned this itt, be it 357magnum rimless, improved 357sig or something else. In both examples we have either a bit larger or similar capacity.

>any larger and you'd legitimately need it on a sling all the time, which makes it in the way if you need to do anything with two hands-such as if you were fishing and suddenly a hungry animal(s) likes the salmon you just hooked

Well, i like versatility more - you surely can cut down the gun for your required size but is this the only gun or its use you'll ever need? I'd sacrifice the bit of effectiveness for being able to use it in more ways and situations and it'd probably be at least good enough. In any case, we might just have different uses for the gun and so have different requirements, nothing wrong with it, just go with what you want and be objective about it. Nothing wrong with specialization as well it it is what you want.

>if you wanted to bullpup the gun

Yeah, that's true but i don't see much use for bullpup guns with barrel length of less than 16"(and even then it's about the point where they start being equally good options). Just compare P90 that has 10" barrel and MP5 that has 9" and then look at P90 but with 16" barrel and pretend MP5 with it and you'll understand what i mean.

>The simplest answer is that high pressure cartridges DO NOT use blowback because it would send the bolt clean through the chassis

And pistol caliber cartridges are not high pressure, unlike rifle ones that both operate at higher pressures(357sig is prob the highest at 40kpsi and 5.56 goes 55-62k) but extend the high pressure over time with slow burning powders. Just look up 10mm Hipont carbine if you want to see yourself.

>AR/AK pistols don't seem to have issues here

They have their gas port pretty far down the barrel, are overgassed, probably gas drainage impact performance, short action can cause problems(especially in ARs) and works less smoothly and most of all - they are FUCKING HUGE. Really, AK pistols are heavy AF as are AKs, while AR ones do have this stupid gas tube sticking out of the back. Interestingly, many AR platform pistol caliber conversions do put blowback action in there.

>Can do, though I admit it's a kinda shitty pic for purpose. Basically pic related.

Ok, i guess it's one of the things that are better to see once than told about 10 times. I'd prefer peep sights on the rear with that, though. Or just some red dot/holo/low powered scope with lots of drop adjustment for shooting at longer ranges. With that, 200m range would be pretty doable without such extreme measures.

>You want less radius so that you can pick off targets from a distance with the given sight setup

Putting on a heat shroud on a full fun gun would be a good idea anyway due to heat obstructing sights picture, especially on open sights. Also, easily replaceable sights are a thing i'd like to see on any gun and i don't like that only pistols and tacticool ARs usually have it. It just adds so much options" fiber optics, tritium, peep, open, backup, foldable, whatever you want sights all without any custom gunsmithing.

>survivalist's short gun

Hearing safe and comfortable to shoot as well as not alerting everyone at good 700m around you of your presence is never a bad thing, especially in survival situation.

>Provided you can mount the section of barrel that has the gas system to the chassis the rest of the barrel is not affected

Again, your gas system would either bulky, heavy, unwieldy, throw off the balance and mount on the barrel(adding all the messing required like drilling it, needing special tools for gas block, gas tube, all fouling and heat in the receiver) or all of these at once it's not a good option. They would probably be a lot more ammo sensitive than blowback as well, and more expensive and less versatile too. It'd be a lot easier to get a new barrel for a blowback SMG when SHTF then if you're using gas system. you could also just make it open bolt if something breaks as well.

>These two I am willing to simply fold on because furniture design can be played with

I'll go with it, as i'm not really interested in bullpup SMGs that much.

>>630057

Also this. It's really something worth looking at. Make it out of better parts, give it a nice finish and mag release and you have a great and reliable weapon that's still cheaper than most equally nice options while still capable of getting shit done without much trouble and annoyance.

357 SIG vs 10MM submachine gun? How about 45 auto?


ec9e62  No.630100

>>630095

10mm Auto wins with a proper Norma spec or higher load, .357 Sig can win with expanding ammo if against an FBI Lite load. .45 ACP loses against both, but if you load it to .45 Super spec then it will easily beat both .357 SIG and Limpwrist rounds, while providing a tradeoff against full house 10mm.

357SIG does not go that great out of longer barrels but i'd still give out 850ft-lbs out of 14" barrel, while 10mm maxes out at 13" and nearly 1000ft-lbs. 10mm does have substantially more recoil and power(from shorter barrel as well) but both are pretty good options so i'd go with the one you have handgun in - if you can handle 10mm go for it, if you CC or want a specific pistol then SIG would be a better option. 45 is only interesting for going subsonic, otherwise it's just an outdated alternative to 9mm.

And as I have said, it's as long as a 7.62 Tokarev cartridge. Actually, it's nominally shorter with 0.2mm. And as I've also said, it fits into a semi-auto pistol grip. Don't tell me that I found a Russian who never heard of the TT pistol. I'm a proponent of this cartridge exactly because this is as long as its possible, and the only other way to increase case capacity is to increase the diameter. And that decreases the number of cartridges in the magazine, which is not a positive according to current trends.

> Its performance was also a bit lower than 357 magnum from longer barrels based on one of the posts from your link.

At this point you should start considering dedicated carbine cartridges. You can make a superior one if you aren't held back by the inherent limitations of pistol cartridges.

>I wonder, would the trigger pull be consistent and comfortable in semi-auto?

Yeah, i too mentioned that nicer finish, better mag release and parts would make it an amazing budget option that would rival ones costing several times as much.

>Would small sections of picatinny rail work for that on pistols?

They could but there's not much reason to. They are big, heavy, catch on things and any sights you'll be able to put on them would look autistic and have the same problems. Pistols already have that dovetail notch thing where the sights go. Revolvers should get this one too and it's a shame it's not standard yet.

>it's as long as a 7.62 Tokarev cartridge

And TT is by no means a small handgun and it uses single stack. There was double stack TT developed but i don't remember it seeing any use so eh. Double stack tokarev may be possible, but only because the cartridge is so thin.

There's actually Five seveN pistol that has even longer cartridges and even though it has quite a big grip it's fine for most for the same reason - it's thin so dimensions remain bearable. You probably could have double stack in your cartridge but i doubt that'd go well as 10mm double stack has had complaints about its size and i'd consider it the upper limit. You could improve the grip construction and bottlenecked cartridges might allow mags that are thinner in the front so you'd end up with a handgun that even though is not concealable would be comfortable to use and serve well. With an even longer cartridge - not so much. Unlike revolvers, we don't have much space for longer cartridges but can easily increase their capacity at the cost of slightly reducing magazine size which is not big of a problem because of easier reloads than a revolver and having advantages of bottlenecked cartridges.

>And that decreases the number of cartridges in the magazine, which is not a positive according to current trends.

Current trends use any excuse to stay with 9mm so i don't see how that'd help.

>You can make a superior one if you aren't held back by the inherent limitations of pistol cartridges.

If i wanted to have a separate cartridge i'd go with an intermediate rifle one in 6-6.5mm caliber. The whole point of "full power pistol cartridge" is versatility that it brings, along with actual handgun performance. Especially when we already have the perfection to strive for in handguns.

That complain is absolutely stupid. It is only an issue for women and manlets, not a very relevant part of the market. The main issue was handling the round on a pistol with slightly-bigger-than-usual grips, the root cause of the problem was poor grip of the firearm. If you ever get the chance, compare Glock 17 grips to bigger grip glocks (the .45 or 10mm), the difference is not significant.

The chinks made double stack 7.62x25 clones of a SIG 226. Perfectly doable.

Well, i'll believe your work on it and hope it's true. Still, i'd limit the length of the cartridge to 10mm as a standard "full size pistol cartridge", 9mm and lik as "medium length pistol cartridge" and stuff like .380 and smaller CC ones as "short length pistol cartridges". That'd aid universality of designs and conversions.

>>630138

I've also just found out that Hues designed this Uru SMG with a single stack magazine. I'm slightly mad about this. So to add to the list of complaints: finish, quality of the parts, mag release, mag construction, maybe fire rate and weight. All probably fixable without serious alterations in the basic design to get sweet sweet makarov of SMGs in return. Hopefully.

>Somewhat true. Based on the data..

>And pistol caliber cartridges are not high pressure

I want to make the 10mm a 50kpsi cartridge before 25% proofing i.e make the dang thing unkillable and able to stuff +P+ loads down it's pipe all day, hence the wish for a gas system. 10mm as according to quickload is a fucking monster once you get pressures that high.

>What is this?

I meant just your average rifleman's stance of cheek shoulder and foregrip. Apologies for confusing you.

>Well, i like versatility more - you surely can cut down the gun for your required size but is this the only gun or its use you'll ever need?

A subgun's advantage is that it can be more powerful than a pistol despite being around the same size and using the same cartridge. The idea here is to give a leg-wearable weapon that's out of the way most of the time, with the agility of a pistol and short range rifleman's accuracy, allowing for one man to go innawoods with one gun that is always with him, and not behind him when he's at his weakest. Traditionally, this has been held by the handgun and powerful large revolver. I want to see if we can improve on that. A small subgun in a powerful, short cartridge fills this role nicely.

>They have their gas port pretty far down the barrel

True, but you can adjust for that with a gas screw.

>Interestingly, many AR platform pistol caliber conversions do put blowback action in there.

But we're trying to develop here a SMG with balls, not one gimped by SAAMI regulations that barely put 10mm 4kpsi above 40 shit and weak.

>Ok, i guess it's one of the things that are better to see once than told about 10 times

>Hearing safe and comfortable to shoot as well as not alerting everyone at good 700m around you of your presence is never a bad thing, especially in survival situation.

Threaded barrel it is, then.

>Again, your gas system would either bulky, heavy, unwieldy

None of this is a problem in a CNC lathe for manufacturing, even in a manual machine only setting you can get away with simply mounting the barrel in an indexing head and making an extra thicc bushing for both the barrel and gas tube ala the 1911 that can be cross-pinned to the upper chassis for strength.

I think we're slowly closing on a formal design recommendation, I'd say interchangeable barrels might be in order. Maybe have the /k/ube woodsman (long) and the /k/ube kebab remover (short), both with threaded barrels. I might try and draw it up depending on how the next few days go.

Would be pretty interesting, do you have any data on some specific loads? Not many pistols to be able to withstand that pressures though. You could carry different loads for the pistol though.

>I meant just your average rifleman's stance of cheek shoulder and foregrip

Ok, thanks. I didn't get your comparison of a subgun vs revolver and don't know many "official" names of things in the firearm world.

>a leg-wearable weapon

I don't think we can get anything smaller than M3 without getting into autopistol category, with mags in grips, forward grips, short barrels and short thin foldable stocks. It's not a good place for hot 10mm, tbh, with its recoil in full auto removing their only advantage over handguns - fire rate and controllability.

>Traditionally, this has been held by the handgun and powerful large revolver

Wasn't it a revolver and a hefty matching carbine?

>True, but you can adjust for that with a gas screw.

Adjustable gas block are great but it'd add even more moving parts that would increase costs and need for maintenance. They are also almost a requirement as such sort gas system would be a lot more ammo-sensitive than blowback mechanism.

>SAAMI regulations

I'm not much into 10mm world that much so excuse my lack of knowledge on the topic.

>Managed to get a better pic for you.

I see, thanks for the effort. Pretty cool and useful but it'd be hard to use in low light. Is it possible to use tritium paint or something on every other "step" of the sights for better visibility? Something could also be done to match it with a peep sight better, like making it thinner and surrounding it with shielding aka MP5 sights, for example.

>None of this is really a problem with a muzzle mounted sight

Yeah, though you'd want to raise the sights a bit and i'd be more difficult to do with a barrel mount, while handguard pic rail would allow all the options the latest AR has, especially since we're probably adding such rail for optics anyway.

>None of this is a problem in a CNC lathe for manufacturing

I was talking more about handling characteristics - a gas tube/rod thick enough to withstand the pressures would add more weight to already not so light barrel and no full stock to couterbalance that. Gas system also makes the gun thicker and bigger, even if just a bit, possibly limiting options for handguards/requiring one where it wouldn't be needed. Also, complicated bolt with locking lugs would be more expensive to make and harder to replace, as well as complicating the whole design.

>I think we're slowly closing on a formal design recommendation, I'd say interchangeable barrels might be in order

Why not pick MP5 shape as a basic setup? It's got options for multiple barrels, has space for action, plenty of stock options, etc. Just the general shape, not necessary any other features.

We've got to decide operation system of the weapon and i still recommend blowback. I do have an an extreme case of hatred towards "average" solutions like gas systems in rifles, moving barrels in pistols, 9mm and 5.56 in cartridges so i'm against gas system even if it can be made to work. I don't think straight blowback is a good option for anything but a prototype as it's just not that effective and light. I don't think gas delayed blowback is a good option as despite its benefits it'd add parts that require more maintenance and is too hot for full auto. I'm unsure about roller-delayed blowback due to it's engineering complexity as despite it being great option it's the hardest to pull through. So we're left with lever delayed blowback that is easy to manufacture(prototypes as well), can handle the hottest 10mm and can reduce the weight of the gun without increasing fire rate or recoil significantly.

One thing to consider would also be the fire rate - how much is enough? I think around 500-600rpm would be good, though if we're going 10mm i'd lower it a bit more, maybe to 250-350, if possible without too much weight.

I still think that 10mm isn't "optimal" for being a universal general-purpose "large pistol cartridge" and something more manageable like 9x25dillon(or my aforementioned 357 auto) would be of better use but they are still the same length so it doesn't matter that much, i suppose.

The problem here is that you want a cartridge that seems to be too big and strong for a pistol to handle, not to mention that you'd need a good locking system to handle it. You would most likely have to carry lighter loads for the pistol, and so you'd just complicate your supply of ammunition with the added hazard of mixing them up. A way out of this problem is to go with a carbine and a revolver. And with a revolver you don't have to worry about the size and the power of the cartridge. Now take a look at pic related: it's basically a rimless supermagnum version of .357 Magnum, it fits into standard STANAG magazines, and in theory you could rechamber any 5.56 NATO weapon to fire this. Then you are free to chop off most of the barrel without significant loss of performance. All you need is a companion revolver that is also chambered for this cartridge.

Kind of a way backwards. It was done but it can and should be done in semi-auto platform.

I know about that but i talked about rimless magnum, not supermagnum. It's still too long to fit in a handgun but if we mate it with 357SIG that already copies the original in at least one load we're good to go. 9x25mm Dillon is already more powerful than 357mag, we just need to trickle it down so it won't blow up your eardrums when shooting from a handgun.

I also thought a bit about the design/specifications/requirements of the gun and i think that looking at MP5/10 and observing its cons would be a better way to go, as we already have a good working platform that way.

Not quite, this is meant as a short range fighting weapon. It's able to be drawn from a (leg) holster and fought as a pistol very effectively within spitting distance, whilst also folding out a stock and able to hunt all manner of non african game including kebab with a powerful pistol cartridge that reaches the top end of .357 magnum in power, and with more capacity than .45 super. The subgun holds advantages over a bullpupped rifle cartridge with similar overall dimensions, say, a 14 inch overall weapon.

Given that a bullpup in 5.56 is going to consume at least 4.5 inches of the overall length just to cycle the action plus another 2.2 inches for the chamber, you are now left with a 7.3 inch barrel. Factory ammo may as well be a flamethrower at this barrel length, because most of the powder is just going to explode outside of the barrel, and would need to be loaded with magnum pistol powders in order to be worth a damn.

>Handloading

10mm and others at it's level can be used out of the box without adjustment for this size. 10mm is much better for handloading with at this level, since it can use any of the fast burning powders without fuss. Rifle cartridges require fillers like tissue paper or kapok to do the same, and it'll likely still have issues. Cost per round for a handloaded 10mm is lower overall since it uses much less powder than a 5.56.

>Weight and portability

You can design a subgun to be as strong as you need for the same or less weight than a rifle chambered bullpup.

>>630289

The central point of my design here is that it's meant to be carried as a large pistol, not as a rifle. You don't carry two loads of ammo unless you need to be sneeki-breeki.

Now, for russbro.

>>630270

>Would be pretty interesting, do you have any data on some specific loads? Not many pistols to be able to withstand that pressures though. You could carry different loads for the pistol though.

As said above to magyar-bro, this is meant as a large pistol able to fight at longer ranges in seconds. I'll need to reinstall quickload to bring up some loads that aren't in my head.

>I don't think we can get anything smaller than M3 without getting into autopistol category

The average adult male's femur is 18 inches in length. A design of 12 inches overall leaves a lot of room for error even for manlets and still stops it from influencing knee movement at an outside estimate of 14.

>Wasn't it a revolver and a hefty matching carbine?

I'm talking about the weapons on your side, not what combinations of weapons would be carried. Sorry for not clearing that up.

> tritium paint or something on every other "step" of the sights for better visibility?

You'd need to subdue the paint, or create a similar effect with tritium slits. Even so, you'd have to take steps to reduce the light bleeding into each other, like less steps on the sight- less precision. If night fighting is an order, a low profile red dot sight would be a better fit. A peep sight would have to be made to instantly level with the steps. The target sight I posted already acts like a ruler across each line.

>Yeah, though you'd want to raise the sights a bit

Certainly, many guns already include a dovetail fitted sight riser between the barrel and sight proper where a rail would affect how you see it.

>lever delayed blowback

See, now this is why I appreciate back and forth in a design conversation and having my shit slapped. I didn't think of lever delayed blowback at all- it consumes bugger-all space, strong as hell and just requires thinking out the geometry to accommodate standard and super hot ammo, with a bias towards the hotter end.

>Fire rate

360 rounds a second, or a split second with a three round burst. Weight with an action that uses leverage is not as much an issue as per straight blowback.

>doesn't matter that much, i suppose.

Correct, you could easily stick a different reamer down the same barrel and have a different bullet spitter.

>this is meant as a large pistol able to fight at longer ranges in seconds

Ok, i'll address it later.

>A design of 12 inches overall leaves a lot of room for error

That's roughly the length of MP5K, and they have pistol length barrels(4.5"). As i have talked about it all - if going compact autopistol is the way to go if that's your intention. As i've said, i'd consider M3 bare minimum for MP5 form factor and even that is a bit stretching it due to compact size of grease gun.

>I'm talking about the weapons on your side

Ok, still, such a revolver is, even though good for hunting as a "main sidearm", doesn't fit our criteria very well due to inability to suppress it, rimmed cartridges and other flaws of revolvers, despite its great OAL that allows it such an application while retaining a longer barrel.

>You'd need to subdue the paint, or create a similar effect with tritium slits

Stair-step fiber optic sights? This seems like a pretty deep rabbit hole so i'm unsure about the use of any of these things, especially since our weapon would probably feature some kind of reflex sights and so irons would be backup anyway, so it makes sense to make them durable, unobtrusive and good enough to use. So this stair step design is pretty good, we only might increase the size of each "step", paint every 3rd or so white, combine with a peep sight below and we're good to go, though i'm unsure about adjusting rear sight for drop and windage beyond what front is capable of helping as i've had little experience with these.

>A peep sight would have to be made to instantly level with the steps

Probably white dots on each side of the ring would suffice.

>many guns already include a dovetail fitted sight riser between the barrel and sight proper where a rail would affect how you see it

Sure why not then. It'd still be additional parts compared to just handguard but that's not that important.

>I didn't think of lever delayed blowback at all

Happy to help bro.

>thinking out the geometry to accommodate standard and super hot ammo

I've had an idea of having an adjustable blowback mechanism. Basically, you have a screw that connects to the floorplate that compresses recoil spring and so turning it would either make it stronger or weaker, allowing the action to accommodate larger variety of ammo. That'd be more important for rifles but it wouldn't hurt this one too, as these actions seem to be pretty violent and so can manhandle the casings if you use brass. I've also just got an idea of push-buttons on the receiver that push weights in the bolt to achieve the same result, though i'd be difficult to fix them in place, i'll go try to paint it.

>360 rounds a second

Could be okay, though lower fire rate always means more weight and might limit CQB potential, potentially. M3 has 450 and it's got a pretty bad stock so 10mm at 400 would probably be fine. I'm okay with setting 300 as the lower limit if it's adjustable, as it'd be very helpful with a suppressor.

So I want to know if this is too memetastic for words, or if its the next Uzi level awesome.

As a competitor to the 10mm, is the .400 corbon. You can get completed 1911 slides for it; maybe halfway between 10mm auto, and 10mm magnum, I think? So, lets say one were to build a cetme pistol in a pistol caliber? Granted it would be lacking something without a giggle switch, but imagine for a moment, an MP400, burning through ammo, liquefying the shooter's shoulder, and doing a decent number on the target's cover, too!


a138e2  No.631052

>>631022

IIRC .400 corbon is pretty close in power to most lighter 10mm loads and was designed to mimic them. 45 super operates at higher pressures(than both 45 and corbon that is ~+P) and offers additional 100ft-lbs of power, getting close to full power 10mm. Both corbon and super have an advantage of fitting in a smaller form factor - the one most modern handguns use, though you get reduced capacity and most of the designs are unable to withstand the increased pressures. You could get to and maybe even beyond full 10mm levels if you combined 45 super and .400 corbon into .400Corbon-Super but it might have the same long barrel problems as 357SIG and you'd have to design new guns for it, as it'd require thicker chamber walls than even better material .45 ones, which in turn would require slide redesign and it might require pistol redesign in turn. If you do all that or find a model that won't blow up after some use and my doubts about long barrel effectiveness aren't true then good job, you've found a 10mm replacement that allows you to trade capacity for shorter grip.

No, assault weapon is the idiotic journalist nomenclature.

In late 18th century the entire concept of battle was broken into "phases". Approach phase, scout phase, supply phase, transport phase, but the final phase was called the assault phase. In WWI, the generals at the time ran into a problem, where it was basically impossible to "dig" an entrenched enemy out and kill him, which meant that fortification basically destroyed the assault phase of military doctrine. This was known as the assault phase problem and was popular in military circles in the interwar period. As a tangent, there existed the German (1932), the French (1910) and about the Russian (1915) school of how to go around that - in order the solution was to ignore the entrenched enemies, to pound him flat with explosives and force a crossing, and to poke holes in his lines and go through them to cut his logistics. America and UK later took the French doctrine and applied it to bombers, and America even invented the ultimate explosive, which painted in broad strokes the next 70 years.

But the POINT is that during and after WWI there were designed a fucktonne of weapons purely for this phase of combat. Assault guns were cannons mounted to armored vehicles that could come close enough (under fire) to be pinpoint accurate and hit the weakest part of fortifications. The Lewis assault phase rifle, the federov avtomat and other such rifles were designed to provide covering fire and make the enemy duck while the troops approached. 20 or 30 guys all firing assault rifles produced an unending stream of bullets, since only half of them would be reloading at any given time.

The assault rifle of today is an evolution of these early concepts.

Assault WEAPON is a retarded term, because it means nothing. A spoon, used in the assault phase of combat, was an "assault weapon". In typical journo fashion, it is a complete misunderstanding of history. And it's actually technically wrong, because the weapons they apply it to are semi automatic which actually completely excludes them from assault phase combat! It's like calling a SUV with a glass window on the roof a "combat vehicle" because some humvees have holes in their roof for .50 cal mounts, not only is it technically wrong because the glass prevents this mounting, but its also figuratively wrong.

Couldn't agree with you more there, 9mm a shit and people need to get on the .357 SIG/10mm/9mm Dillon train. But are you sure those keep SMGs from being obsolete? I feel like .300 memeout and similar have largely replaced SMGs, except in those niche cases you're planning to dump your whole mag on a target at once and need the recoil control. You can get SBRs pretty compact these days; just with commercial parts you can get an AR with a 7.5" barrel down to ~19 inches OAL, I'm sure if you designed a memeout gun from the ground up to be compact, you could go even smaller.

Ok, admitting this is at least honest, so i'll explain. Beretta 93R is not a concealable weapon in any meaningful way and certainly doesn't fit its purpose - it's heavy, bulky, catches on things with its sharp corners and is just plain too big. The entire class of the weapons' purpose is to be easily wearable as a sidearm/PDW, not a concealable weapon in any way and probably never will be and arguing for such use of one is astonishingly stupid.

>And you don't find unusual things interesting?!!?!

As i've said. this ammo has little to do with the gun itself. It seems your memory is just as lacking as your reading comprehension. Seek help or find a gun and kill yourself.

>>631272

>But are you sure those keep SMGs from being obsolete?

Partially. It's not just pistol calibers that have been reduced to over glorified pea shooters, but rifle calibers as well, as their efficiency is very close to those of full power pistol cartridges. 10mm, for example, has as much energy from 13" barrel as 5.56 has from 16" and its most advantage is better BC. If rifles are going to use these cartridges then SMGs will probably never return as these rifles are just a minor step up from them by removing handgun compatibility, while if we change to some ACTUAL general purpose intermediate cartridge(for example 6.5mmGrendel that almost copies the trajectory of the .308, not perfect but a good example) then SMGs could find their role as a PDW/CQB weapon once again. If you're interested in reading about 6-6.5mm GPC check this out http://abesguncave.com/category/general-purpose-combat-rifle/ or google "6mm optimum". As for .300 memeout, it's less powerful than 7.62x39 that nearly matches 30-30. Some .357 magnum loads can match the performance of the weaker 30-30 loads, aside from fatter bullets being slightly less aerodynamic. Given that 300blk is even weaker, you're better off using either .357 magnum rimless(that you could probably even get a revolver with moon clips) or even .357 maximum rimless that'll easily leave 300blk behind at ANY barrel length and also fits in an AR nicely. I've just looked at it, and in up to 12" barrels i think 10mm beats 300blk, though i'm unsure about that due to lack of info on blk and using only one 10mm load that might not be optimal for longer barrels.

>just with commercial parts you can get an AR with a 7.5" barrel down to ~19 inches OAL

It's still an AR, with its own problems. It has longer action, it has buffer spring and it doesn't fold, not even the stock. Now take a look at Kel-tec sub-2000 carbine and you'll see what can be done if you specialize a bit instead of stretching your rifle design all over for any purposes.

Famas isn't a very good example as it's french design that they fucked up, quite frankly. It has extreme fire rate, can't use brass cases due to problems with extraction and is really a letdown, but at least it's working. I much prefer citing TKB-517 as an example of the system, as it was lighter, more accurate, cheaper to manufacture, better ergonomics and milder recoil than AK. If only Soviets didn't fuck it up due to political games, PR and "established industry".


f54f34  No.631309

>>631272

I've repeated in this thread before that most commercial cartridges will not work in short barrels without lighting everything in front of you on fire unless loaded with a magnum pistol powder like H110 or W296. If you can do that, you've got a better performing weapon size for size.

That's the kicker though- you can make a much BETTER smaller weapon with an SMG because the cartridge OAL is smaller- a little over half the size of 5.56 in 10mm's case, and less for 9x19. For any given length dimension required for a 5.56 part, you can cut it in half to make a smaller gun with a competitive power to 5.56 or.300BO that isn't gimped by powder choice at the same length.

>>631012

>That's roughly the length of MP5K, and they have pistol length barrels(4.5")

I'm sure we can get it smaller so that we can squeeze a bit more barrel length out of it.

As for your idea:

>>631015

Bretty gud. The interesting thing about the base-plate and screw assembly is that if the screw strips they always do your gun defaults to the lowest spring pressure. My solution to having a problem with screws would be to require disassembly to adjust fire rate instead of on the fly- change the spring. If you need it done on the fly, you could also change the amount of resistance in the lever delay mechanism itself by applying a small friction wheel somewhere in the mechanism, which also means that you can change the gun to adopt mouse fart loads.


a138e2  No.631313

>>631309

>I'm sure we can get it smaller so that we can squeeze a bit more barrel length out of it.

I still think that we should either go with a full sized main gun or a compact wearable autopistol, not a mix of these 2 as each one would hinder others purpose. I'd also not go with an autopistol for the reason of complexity of engineering and different materials, as well as doubts about 10mm fitting this role well.

>The interesting thing about the base-plate and screw assembly is that if the screw strips

You could add pins that go through the rod and stop the plate. It doesn't have to be operated from assembled state, as you mentioned.

>My solution to having a problem with screws would be to require disassembly to adjust fire rate instead of on the fly- change the spring

You'd have to have a set of different springs unless you repurpose them somewhere for the time being - that's bad. I want the gun to be able to be as self-contained as possible. Ideally, disassembly and cleaning should be possible using either bare hands or parts included in the gun(think M3 stock functionality) and only thing for the gun to be functional to be the ammo.

>your gun defaults to the lowest spring pressure

I'm unsure if this could be dangerous in lever-delayed blowback gun - could the case be extracted too early and explode due to lack of resistance of the sporing? I've a bit hard time understanding variables in such a complex operating mechanism with my lack of engineering knowledge.

>mouse fart loads

Just remove the lever, man. That could probably be done and also used for (possible) conversions in lesser calibers.

Fair enough, but I get the impression that you're comparing really hot pistol loads to regular intermediate loads. If you took .300 memeout/7.62x39 and tricked it out to the same degree you're tricking out these high-caliber pistol cartridges, wouldn't you get superior performance? Granted I'm not basing that assumption on anything scientific–but I'd assume the cartridge with better case capacity and more aerodynamic bullets would have higher potential performance than a pistol cartridge if done correctly.

>It's still an AR, with its own problems

Granted, slavfriend, I think I implied as much in my original post. My point was that, even with off-the-shelf parts for a gun that was very much not designed to be a compact weapon, you can get it pretty damn short; if you designed a gun from the ground up to be a foldable SBR in some intermediate caliber you could get it even smaller. And sure, an SMG would have the potential to be even smaller than that due to the shorter magwell and action, but if the SBR is already small enough to meet all your requirements (granted, you guys have gone pretty extreme in this thread so a compact SBR might be too fat for you), wouldn't it make sense to stick with the higher-power caliber?

>I get the impression that you're comparing really hot pistol loads to regular intermediate loads

I'm using buffalo bore 180gr data from BBTI as an example of full power 10mm load, there's a more powerful one on wikipedia but there's only 1 data point and it may be false. I'm also using data from wikipedia on 300blk and it has ~1200ft-lbs from 16,5" barrel - quite a bit lower than 7.62x39. The 10mm load maxes out at 13"(which isn't great and could be improved in specialized loads from looking at 357mag that can get to 1240ft-lbs at 16") at ~1050ft-lbs so i assumed the performance of more long barrel-oriented cartridge would be in more steep decline from shorter barrel. I suppose my approximations can be wrong or you can find hotter 300blk loads but still, their capabilities are pretty similar. I could use 357mag instead as they match better at 1.2kftlbs from 16" instead but i chose 10mm because it has more potential to be powerful.

>I'd assume the cartridge with better case capacity and more aerodynamic bullets would have higher potential performance than a pistol cartridge if done correctly

Of course, when you're not hindered by fitting your cartridge in a pistol you can get something substantailly more powerful - like 458SOCOM. The problem is - do you want yet another cartridge to do what can be efficiently done by the one you already have? You end up getting slightly more specialized effective SMG still - not a proper rifle as can be seen with modern intermediate cartridges, where 5.56 needs 20" barrel to reach 300m effectiveness.

>if the SBR is already small enough to meet all your requirements (granted, you guys have gone pretty extreme in this thread so a compact SBR might be too fat for you), wouldn't it make sense to stick with the higher-power caliber?

It would, but only because our current militarizes use 2 cartridges when there could be only 1 that'd outperform both(i could explain how it can be done but you'd better check out the link in my previous post as it explains it much better than i could). For now, i'll just say that such general purpose cartridge would have 1 major hindrance - it'd require a full-length 20" barrel to be effective for multiple roles and optimized for that as well, so SBRing it would mean great power loss, ineffective powder burn, inaccuracy and overall things similar to SBR 5.56 AR. That's where SMGs come into play, offering effective (re)use of already-used(they should) in the military full power pistol cartridges that offer lower recoil, less flash, more energy and less size than using a dedicated 20" barrel cartridge for that could - all while you have 1 LESS cartridge to issue and supply to the troops than you do now. Ain't that beautiful?

>>631379

Wait, want to correct myself - 300blk is around 1350ft-lbs for hotter loads(while 7.62x30 is at least 1500) so it is more powerful than 357mag and probably even long-barrel specialized(though i've not found one but 10mm is not that common to begin with) 10mm loads. It still would lose more from shorter barrel than a pistol cartridge, so my claims are still mostly correct.

<spring pressure effecting ejection speed

Read Hatcher's Notebook, he goes over pretty in depth over how spring pressure has little to no effect on ejection speed because the force of the burn/explosion is orders of magnitude more powerful than a spring. This is why delayed blowback became mandatory was because they had to delay the blowback long enough to save the brass from splitting.

Essentially, spring pressure ONLY effects cycle rate, not ejection speed. It governs the rate at which the bolt returns to the chamber from the rearward position. In other words, the lowest setting spring position would be the lowest fire rate, as a high tension spring would result in a higher fire rate.

Some good reading on bolt weights for straight-blowback.

https://www.orions-hammer.com/blowback/

I'm new to the thread, but I love the idea. Lever delayed blowback in 10mm (or similar). The idea of a friction adjustable lever (conical ring is good) is also great. I think the purpose of

>mix of these 2

is to have a short range spit-rifle that you have the capability to suppress longer ranges if needed. The problem with autopistols that I have is they are difficult to control, so I think the middle SMG route is good for controlability as well as a nice added benefit of a few hundred yards more range.

Frankly, the idea of a cheap producable bullpup pistol SMG gets me hard. if only we could solve the brass2face issue. The big advantage of pistol calibers is you reduce the throw of the bolt and the length of the chamber by 2+inches.

>>631398

Again, though, my biggest issue about reducing an SMG to an autopistol is controlability, that's why I shill for the SMG/PDW style weapons. If you want to throw a lot of lead downrange in city or close quarters you want the leverage on the gun that a longer weapon affords.


a138e2  No.631404

>>631400

Thanks, i'll look into it shortly.

>The problem with autopistols that I have is they are difficult to control

Indeed, though it's more of an issue when you have a moving slide instead of a bolt no stock and just a folding grip, so something like vbr-b or beretta with a stock would probably be fine. The stocks are usually pretty flimsy but i like the one on the vbr.

>Again, though, my biggest issue about reducing an SMG to an autopistol is controlability, that's why I shill for the SMG/PDW style weapons

There's a line where a gun can be carried as a sidearm on your hip or starts to require a sling and gets in the way. After that it doesn't make much difference how long your gun is - less weight is good but unless you go to extreme examples like 20" barrel it's not really that different. Kind of like issuing M4 vs MP5A4 - weight is the same and AR only gets in the way a bit more.

I've also got another idea of adjusting the delaying - why not have multiple positions for the lever so it can have different closed positions that adjust amount of leverage on the 2nd part of the bolt? It'd probably require a bit bigger bolt to be able to accommodate lever in multiple positions but it needs to be able to be disassembled anyway so why not have a few more holes for the pin?

>Slide vs bolt being the issue

True. Actually I was talking to a US Army weapons developer and he was saying that the harshest 'jump', the biggest single factor in recoil was the bolt slamming home in the chamber, that if there was a way to reduce that you'd get a much lighter recoil, though a light bolt helps substantially with that.

>carriability.

That's a good point. I was thinking of the ultimate in usability for home defense and close quarters. To carry it properly requires it to be shorter than, say, 15" collapsed?

We might be able collab on a crossover at that length, what OAL were you thinking of?

Incidentally, I wonder how hard it would be to turn .pdfrelated into a 10mm lever-delayed, it already seems primed for the adjustable spring. Just make it dual-stack double feed and we'd be gtg.

I'm thinking that MP5K would probably be the upper limit overall and that's already a stretch. You can add a bit of length but make it thinner or only extend the barrel so overall dimensions stay mostly the same.

I do have doubts about going into compact wearable autopistol/PDW design, as it'd probably require use of polymers(to keep it light), more complex, detailed and sophisticated engineering and less room for error and safety. it's basically akin to designing a pistol - complex trigger groups with many functions, cramped space and need to contain and withstand pressure on the main parts, not to mention manufacture and prototyping costs even without the use of polymers that are almost unreachable for a common strelok.

>And yeah Hatcher's Notebook should be required reading on 8/k/, it's a great read

I'm not so sure myself, it was Australia's idea first, i just kinda supported it.

Nah, adjustability is only required to accommodate wider variety of ammo in the ammo-sensitive action. If it can run it good without all this stuff, there's not much to gain from if the base FR is sensible.

>light

Ok, but not necessary. Manageable fire rate is more important.

>ease of manufacture [Stamped?]

I'd say it's more important in prototyping, unless we can get such a magnificent weapon that it beats commercialor smuggled options available to a strelok. Otherwise, at least you US guys could probably manufacture a good design.

>barrel shroud

No reason not to, really.

>concealable or nah?

Nah, definitely. Wearable, on the other hand is a lot better question, but unless you're a serious arms manufacturer with plenty of spare resources and are/have a good engineer i'd pick an easier option.

>Could be a slightly scaled down/altered pdfrelated, too.

I don't think bullpups in a gun with a barrel under 16" add anything to its value that'd compensate for all disadvantages it brings. This model is indeed interesting but i think it'd better fit a service rifle project.

Agreed.

As for manufacture, if somebody in the thread has a mill, lathe, and press (not too much to ask) then prototyping the general idea might happen, would be cool. Not that you'd actually be able to mass produce them or anything this is just speculative.

But I like the idea of the bullpup SMG just because the added barrel does effect ballistics. Disadvantages of course include brass2face effect, shit triggers, and sometimes awkward loading.

I feel like it's the most useful solution. You could use wood handguard for aesthetics but it'd add more weight and won't help with barrel heat, as well as burn your hand with a wrong grip. They are better for a slow-shooting long gun, really.

>As for manufacture, if somebody in the thread has a mill, lathe, and press (not too much to ask) then prototyping the general idea might happen, would be cool

Yeah, though if end result is not the main goal then designing and projecting these unusual engineering solutions might be more viable. Longer gun would still be simpler to work with and we've had a few interesting ideas that can be tested but in this case you could think of something within autopistol type too, if you want to.

>But I like the idea of the bullpup SMG just because the added barrel does effect ballistics

I have an older version of QuickLoad. It recommends Alliant POWER PISTOL, but technically there are slightly better choices if you use powders you've never heard of.

Here's a reasonable estimate: (remember, this is a piece of software, not a range test)

165gr Speer TMJ bullet, seated normal OAL, on top of 9.7 grains of PwrPst out of an 11" barrel, will burn 97+% of the powder (no setting your cover on fire), have a muzzle velocity of 1550fps for 883 ft-lbs, and have a lock time of 0.85ms (for accuracy's sake, from the time you smack the primer until the bullet isn't touching anything anymore, is less that 1/10000th of one second)

Or, out of a 16" carbine barrel, and allowing a guestimated 33,000PSI max pressure, you can consider Rottweil's P806, 13.8gr charge, same bullet, to just-kiss 1700fps, less that 1.1ms lock time and muzzle energy of 1075 ft-lbs.

Or Accurate #7, 12.65 grains to just kiss the SAAMI pressure specs, same bullet/OAL, 16" barrel for 1650fps/995 ft-lbs, 92.7% powder burned (not much flash after 16" of barrel) and still under 1.1ms lock time.

That last load, from a 10.5" barrel, has burned 86% of the charge, reach 1540fps/875ft-lbs and .8ms locktime.

For %-burned comparison, seems to burn 99.7+% of its powder. For example, IMR 4198, 20.7gr charge, pushing a 70gr SSP also from Speer, reaches 2460fps/944 ft-lbs in .624ms

Does any of this conjecture facilitate more accurate considerations here?

a138e2  No.631744

>>631698

This is all pretty interesting but the options you presented seem rather underpowered. Could it be that these loads are optimized for all powder burn within the barrel and not most of to keep the pressures high throughout the entire thing? The only load that is remotely powerful is 1075ft-lbs one, though its from 16" barrel and buffalo bore 180gr does 1k out of 13". Also wikipedia has 135 gr (9 g) Controlled Expansion Doubletap Ammunition that has 768ft-lbs from 4.6" barrel, that's close to what buffalo bore has at the same length. Either they're using more powerful powders to get plain better results or the loads aren't optimized for their purpose.


9589dd  No.631749

>>631744

Those loads are the result of asking for a list of suggested powders.

Input is: the caliber, of course, the bullet, the barrel, and some variables like "fastest powder you'd consider" and likewise the slowest. Not sure what the consequence of that is – mostly if you consider all the powders, it takes longer because it has to systematically say "nope that exceeds pressure limits" or it puts BMG-50 at the bottom of the list because it would limp out the bullet at 415fps.

You also can specify any of a few radio boxes for critical limits, I've always used "limit by pressure and capacity" with a maximum of 103% of available (very slightly compressed) and I usually don't know about the PSI limit, but figure SAAMI are probably pretty conservative. For the 10mm, it's listed at 32,400PSI I think? For 5.56 NATO I'm sure 63,000PSI is within expectation of the components of the gun.

I doubt you could pressure the 10mm brass up to 55,000, but out of an AR-platform it would be less unreasonable. Out of a glock, no that will break something.

It IS possible there are some powders my software doesn't know about, but honestly I don't expect that to be the limiting factor. It's always possible the ammo vendors are overstating their claims, of course. But at the very least, you should be able to compare loads from the same software against each other, since the limitations would be spread & repeated evenly.

He's using fast burning pistol powders in order to minimize muzzle flash, and getting similar results to high powered pistol rounds by handloading instead of using factory ammo. It's a pragmatic approach- if you don't want to develop a new platform and are willing to use a piston 10" AR-10 with a side-folding stock you would be able to achieve decent results for a subgun substitute *provided* the powder fill is high enough to consistently ignite. In fact, there's a good article here http://guns.connect.fi/gow/arcane1.html

Which deals explicitly in using fast burning powders with .30, 8 and 7mm cartridges to produce subsonic rounds in order to be quiet. It's a very good approach for mild rounds.

Precisely why we're talking about this- no blowback pistol has the ability to repeatedly wear 50kpsi without a delay.

Also, on thinking about it- in order to maintain a high barrel length for 12-14" size, the subgun discussed would pretty much have to be a bullpup fed through the trigger grip. Everything else would stay the same.

>buffalo bore 180gr does 1k

Looking up Buffalo Bore, I see a mention in Shooting Illustrated, Not sure if its factory hyperbole or tested fact, but their +p+ 9mm reaches 1350fps. Going back to my software, I find Alliant Bullsye (isn't that a shotgun powder?) out of, again it remembered from before, a 10.5" barrel, would need 4gr, which for the 115gr Barnes X-Tac bullet I didn't spend too much time finding, will reach 1350fps muzzle velocity, passing 39220PSI to get there – about 10% above SAAMI spec of 35,000PSI limit for the round.

Using that 10% figure, and going back to the 10mm Auto round, again Power Pistol, a 10.62gr charge behind the same Speer 165gr bullet as before, now reaches 1650fps out of a half-inch shorter barrel, peak pressure of 39000PSI which can be dealt with if the parts are selected for it (probably) and yes, 995ft-lbs of energy.

>>631755

>in order to minimize muzzle flash,

No, it sorts by muzzle velocity, and pistol brass needs pistol powder. I've looked into it – you can't drastically change the burn rate just because "I'm using a longer barrel" – there's a range of powders that are good choices based on the ratio of volume of powder to bore of bullet. Rifles shoot faster because they have necked brass, thus huge (proportionately) volumes of powder; pistol powder will break something so you need slower "rifle'' powder.

Nuh un, you don't. Magazine inside a pistol grip only makes sense in a compact autopistol - if you go full size you're better off just having the grip on the back of the receiver, like MP5 does. You don't gain much by moving the grip because you still need space for bolt to move and end up with something like UZI that would only hinder the gun's handling characteristics and complicate engineering for the gain of a bit shorter overall profile. You still need a stock, place for support hand and a barrel shroud so it's really not a great decision, especially with how problematic can using double feed mag be in this configuration.

You have longer barrel so you can have slower burn rate. Whether it makes the powder "pistol" or not, this is the way to go to maximize performance.

You have to sacrifice something else for that. I remember watching a video where a guy experimented with fast powders in 44mag rifle - they'd burn completely before the bullet left the barrel so he basically had subsonic ammo without a suppressor. Safe to say, performance of such ammo would be pretty low even for subsonic loads.

Nope, sorry. False. Believe me I'd love for it to be true, but by and large it's not. This is a common question that gets repeatedly smacked down in serious forums by engineers and experienced handloaders. The viable burn rate is decided by the brass, before it's put into a chamber.

I'd love for it to otherwise, for the same kinds of reasons you're looking for "more performance" but if you want to take the most advantage from a longer barrel, you're going to need more, not slower or faster powder.

That's what that word means, yes. And despite what your "common sense" meter tells you, the range of burn rates suitable for a cartridge are decided by the brass, not the length of the barrel.

Here's some screen shots of what we're talking about: 10mm load trying to shove IMR4918 into it. Then choosing 556 instead, and then switching to H335, always relying on the pressure peaks to be the limiting factor. Also, the same H335 load fired out a 24" barrel instead.

Couldn't this be solved by bigger clips and longer magazines? Humor provided.

>the range of burn rates suitable for a cartridge are decided by the brass, not the length of the barrel

I didn't intend to say that barrel "decides" how powder will burn, only what powder will be usable for a barrel. Fast-burning powder works great in short barrels because it burns through their length quickly enough, with burn rate itself independent from the medium in which it burns(not really but you get the idea). The same way loading slow burning powder in 5.56 and shooting it from short barrel leaves us with plenty of unburnt powder that leaves the barrel.

I'm not a handloader so it's a bit hard for me to grasp what all this data means, could you explain what happens if we load some standard .223 ball powder in 10mm? Or using blank powder in 5.56 cases?

Correct me if I'm wrong (and I often am), but a powder has to have a slow enough burn to push the bullet down the barrel rather than just exploding in the chamber and blowing up the gun. There has to be a balance between what the barrel/chamber can take and what your goal is.

Really a shame we can't get the parts to make 5.45 at home. This graph shows what happens with just a hair too much Accurate 1680 is put behind a Sirocco 75gr (resized to .221 so the software will stop complaining) and a 20" barrel. Before 21" the powder is burned completely, so while this shows a muzzle velocity of 2600fps (and implied energy of 1125ft-lbs) a nice "sniper" layout of 26", same load, comes out at over 1,200 ft-lbs (2720fps). Smokin'!

>>631786

>I'm not a handloader

Yeah, I can tell. So, in my previous post, that first graph showing a 10mm sort of flopping out at transonic velocity with a compressed load? (IE there's more powder in the brass than using that bullet, at that depth allows for, so you're shoving the powder down, spiking pressure in somewhat unpredictable, shot to shot, amounts).

That load is using IMR4198, which is suitable for the 556 and related intermediate rounds. It's a bit too fast for a good .308 Winchester round though – again, brass chooses what burn rates the powder should have.

Here's the 1680 in a hypothetical .308 – huge pressure spike, and less than ideal muzzle performance, even with a 28" hunting rifle.

Okay I feel the need to point out I was pretty wrong. For that 150gr bullet, in a run of the mill .308 shell, the best powder my copy knows about is … 1680.

But to be fair, Hogdon 4198 was right behind it, and that's what I bought all those years ago when I first started handloading (literally, with my hands and a hammer. Good ol' Lee one-caliber reloading kits.)

Indeed, blank powder(that's often used in nailguns too) is a very-very fast burning one so the pressure spike makes it unusable for propelling bullets in most cases.

>>631794

This is rather interesting but i'd prefer if you answered my question. 5.45 is pretty cool and it's mostly underpowered because its data usually comes with 16" barrel compared to 5.56 20" but eh.

>again, brass chooses what burn rates the powder should have

Then why not use any powder in there? Why is the powder not great for .308? I see that necked cartridge allows to concentrate pressure and increase burn rate of a given powder. Still, there're different powders that have different characteristics that do influence the burn rate and so i assume they can allow more prolonged application of pressure that'd make a more long barrel friendly load, despite cartridge's basic limitations.

You keep mentioning different powders but i know nothing about any of them and googling each one is pretty tedious and overall is just making your point more confusing to understand.

I know I'm not explaining it well; I don't know the full technical explanation but I've read it more than once. The burn rate that is "ideal" is ideal because of the ratio of powder volume to barrel bore. So again, the powder is chosen before barrel length is considered.

Oh, there's a little leeway, mostly because of the absolute glut of powder choices on the market.

Here's a few pages that touch on the subject, since I can't find the reloading thread that finally set me straight.

As we've started talking about ballistics and cartridge designs, i've tried to look why does .357 magnum perform so well out of long barrels, i've found out that .357mag has quite a bit more case capacity than 10mm(1.70vs1.56cm3), while being weaker in pistols, which leads me to the conclusion that .357 magnum case might be more optimized for slower burning powders and less for shorter barrels with which it's usually used. I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject of case construction so i'll just leave this as it is.

>>631806

>So again, the powder is chosen before barrel length is considered.

Again, i'd like you to answer my question. I see that cartridges more often than not perform well with a specific powder while others severely change the burning rate like in your pic here >>631802 , but it doesn't mean that ALL powders that aren't the standard will have such a weird pressure curve. I believe there are powders that can allow more gradual powder burn without being in the same burn rate range that is acceptable for the cartridge. Therefore, i think that you =can= have a 5.56 load that uses a fast-burning powder while allowing proper burn and pressure distribution that would make the use of the cartridge with shorter barrels more bearble.


a138e2  No.631818

>>631806

Also in your articles nobody explains shit

First one says that loads don't change depending on the barrel lengths - unlike velocities, without any argument for it. I'd counter it in that you still have some powder selection that does work in the cartridge and can still pick the slowest burning one from them and it'll likely yield slightly better long barrel performance. It might be small but adding 1-2" of barrel that can accelerate the bullet instead of slowing it down are possible, pretty sure and it'd prove my point.

Second article only talks about weakness of 9mm that never goes away even from longer barrels, which is pretty obvious to anyone interested in this stuff anyway.

And third article is a little shitty cunt from TFB talking shit about PCCs by cherrypicking both cartridges(only shitty pistol ones of today), guns(ar platform) and applications, like excluding SMGs and discarding advantages of an option based entirely on his personal needs and preferences. If you're posting this scummy worthless degenerate after you're read through this here you're a piece of shit, anon, quite frankly.


a138e2  No.631822

Okay, i'm basically stuck with casing engineering. It seems very complicated, has many variables and little info on the topic. From what i got i suspect that a cartridge is basically designed around 1 type of powder and is limited to it, the only thing adjustable being the hotness of the load. That'd mostly make handloading look useless and handloaders as people whose time costs less than a few cents but putting that aside, it seems my understanding of versatility of reloading in general and .357 magnum in particular was but a fantasy. Then, we need a cartridge that allows similar long barrel performance as 357 without sacrificing size, recoil and overall versatility that'd allow its use in both handguns and rifles efficiently. So i've got a question - can you reduce the pressure of a cartridge to gain more prolonged powder burn rate? I'm (re)thinking something like 357SIG but longer and with less operating pressure, but if that's not true a complete redesign might be necessary, up to the point of increasing maximum dimensions to .45ACP size, though i have no idea what to do with all these bottlenecks, angles, pressures and powder burn rates all mixed together.


a138e2  No.631823

>>631822

though now that i think about it, it's not that bad. It seems like it comes more to case capacity then construction, at least in longer barrels. .45super has similar capacity to .357mag and performs slightly worse, comparable to difference in pressure. it doesn't explain how 10mm beats 357 though, might be larger caliber, 3kpsi more and hotter maximal loads observed. .357mag vs .357SIG could also be explained this way - less capacity is partially compensated by 5kpsi(or even 9, in case of CIP). Looks like more space results in better long barrel performance than hotter load, probably due to space setting the pressure distribution and hotness just increase it proportionally over the whole process. Still, these comparisons are kinda weird, as 9x25mm dillon, for example, is 1.48cm3 at 36kpsi is very close to 357mag that has more capacity(1.7) for the same pressure.

https://www.forgottenweapons.com/submachine-guns/japanese-model-ii-type-a/

>A unique feature of this and other early Japanese SMG designs is the use of an adjustable buffer assembly. As the bolt flies backwards after firing, it is caught by a piston connected to a compressed-air buffer in the rear of the receiver. As the bolt pushes backwards, air in the buffer can only escape through a small valve, which has multiple different sized holes which the shooter can select from. This allows the bolt velocity to be controlled, thus giving the shooter control over the gun’s rate of fire. Our reference book says the rate can be 500 or 600 rpm, but the original report says the buffer has five different holes to select from.

I've done some more search and found out a few things:

There's a cartridge called .40 Super, which is basically a .45 super necked to .40 cal or .400corbon on steroids. The same thing we talked about earlier. It's considerably more powerful than 10mm(and 9x25corbon still falls ~100ft-lbs short) and wikipedia writes about plenty of flexibility with both bullet weights and powder selection, though no actual data is present. it's case capacity is presumable somewhat equal .45 and .357mag so the only clearly visible downside of it for now is reduced sectional density that would further limit the effective range, though it can be overcome. It also has reported problems with feeding due to its bottleneck akin to what 357sig had before glock redesigned its followers, so be wary if you're getting it.

I've also revisited the 7.62x25 tokarev cartridge - it's hotter loads offer ~500 ft-lbs, which is not very much compared to other monsters here but is still more than functional. The only serious problem that has been detected with it by multiple reviews both by soviets that dropped it and Paul Harrell's review is it's insufficient expansion that limits its performance compared to less powerful options, though it does retain great penetration capability. I think that lack of expansion can be overcome if ammo actually used modern soft point technologies that were unreachable for soviets and aren't used by those remaining manufacturers that still offer it due to unprofitability of development of good performing bullets in this caliber. It's also notable for continuous use in SMGs and so probably performs well from then by design. It's not perfect and falls behind a bit with range but its low caliber and proven design do make it something to consider. It also has base diameter 0.1mm smaller than that of 9x19, offering similar capacity. I'll be looking into additional data on it in the future, as it might be more promising than i thought of it.

Then there's .38 casull - it's a mysterious one, being something like .45 necked to 38 cal, all while performing really well, on levels similar to .40 super or so(~950ft-lbs, at least for that one load some guy posted being 977 and .40 being 971 on wikipedia). It was also noted to be loud, which could mean better performance from longer barrels, as well as being very accurate and heavy-recoiling(but not terrible). Was working fine with guns that used it too. There's also .38/.45 Clerke or .38/.45 Auto Pistol that is weaker, probably due to lower pressures and it certainly uses .45ACP cases, but at least their concepts are identical and its 445ft-lbs are not much but aren't complete failure.

There also were .38 super/9x23mm winchester/9x25mauser that are good performers with decent energy that does fall behind. .357mag but not by much. There's no info on their performance from longer barrels, only few requests, as well as info that Thompson SMG was chambered in it but again, no info on performance. If we accept that it's performance falls behind .357mag to a similar margin as it does from pistol(even though the case capacity is very different) then we've got a pretty good option that is still common enough today, as well as the one with a small case base diameter, aiding in both capacity and width of the grip, which are both good and latter even more important, especially for a double stack double feed magazine concealability which we'd need if we're ever going to get stuff done instead of wasting moneys on locally-made copies of the same shit over and over, they also are straight-walled so that might be a plus for reloading. Is it possible to CC a .45 double stack? Not the best choice of course, but we're picking the most extreme example in case we'll have to go to .45acp case base diameter. Overall these rounds might be an alright choice and certainly aren't terrible for this purpose.

Lastly, there is a weird one that's not really practical - .224BOZ which is 10mm necked down to .224 that takes 5.56 bullets. It's pretty interesting in that it fires 50gr bullet at 2500fps from 5" barrel, resulting in 650+ft-lbs, so it might be not a bad performer, even though it was designed to defeat body armor. It has 5.56 sectional density and from longer barrels can actually outperform its bigger brother, unless we go 15"+, i suppose. If anything, you can use it to troll 5.56 fanboys.

There's been 9×25mm Super Auto G but there's absolutely no info on it aside from dimensions on wikipedia, saying that 9x25dillon is the closest we have today but it might actually the thing we're looking for.


a138e2  No.635913

>>635911 (pt2)

There's a problem with 9x25 dillon and it's its loudness - it's hard to bear even with hearing protection. It was designed for slower powders and light bullets to generate lots of gasses and it does this quite well and these gasses might give a considerable boost in performance from long barrels. The problem is - it's mainly a pistol cartridge, still, so it should be optimized for faster burning powders, but not as fast ones as in 10mm - it does fall behind at longer barrels and stops gaining anything at 13". I don't know if .357mag powders are different or it's just its case capacity but if they are then it's pretty much the optimal thing. How can you change the effective burn rate of a cartridge? What things affect it's long barrel performance beyond case capacity? Are steep sharp shoulders more desirable to a narrow taper? Dillon does seem to have pretty steep shoulder angle and round edges so that might have something to do with its performance.

There doesn't seem to be any info on anyone using 9x25 dillon from longer barrels, which is frustrating, as it really seems like an obvious thing with all its gasses and loudness and compensators and power, but there are only few mentions of some problems and some people that were going to try it either in AR, along with some pics, but absolutely no data, which is really unfortunate.

Does anyone know how does a shoulder angle affect the burn rate? Or data on performance of any of aforementioned cartridges from longer barrels?

So i've looked into 7.62x25 data and found out that it roughly equals .38 super, falling behind 9x23 winchester that allows greater pressures and so is more powerful. The winchester does still have questionable long barrel performance but if it disproves the assumption then it might still be a viable option due to its reloadability, being the same all-purpose cartridge as .357mag in revolvers, while tokarev might be more specialized with its penetration, weight and recoil.

It also seems like the issue with expanding ammo has been somewhat solved and there are good expanding options that don't overpenetrate, so that's great. I never expected to get hard from seeing this sweet looking tokarev ammo, it's beautiful

I've crunched the numbers and found out that sectional density of 7.62x25 85gr bullet is similar to that of 115gr 9mm, so tokarev does have a substantially flatter trajectory while losing energy almost as slowly as 125gr .38 super loads, therefore outclassing the latter in recoil, size, weight, trajectory, velocity, penetration and losing only in reloadability and practical disadvantages like marker presence and cost. They mostly match in energy but tokarev does have a slight advantage. Only the hottest loads of the better 9x23winchester might give some advantage over tok but it wouldn't remove other drawbacks of the thing, though it is a viable choice, especially for reloaders. Max operating pressures of the tokarev seem to be around 38lpsi, though it's unclear if these apply to the more modern hotter ammo that goes from 380 to 500+ft-lbs, as there are some sources stating pressures up to 48kpsi, though it's probably somewhere inbetween. The cartridge case has also been reported to be pretty strong, so it can probably be "modernized" to withstand higher pressured and give the cartridge a bit more power. Overall 7.62x25 tokarev is an excellent powerful and fast cartridge. It can be a good choice for our project, offering at least 150(hopefully 200)m range with proper sights from 10" barrel, as well as being a readily available working solution that can grow and improve further. The only thing that is unclear is its performance from longer barrels, especially with hotter loads but we can safely assume that it's probably at least satisfactory. Effective range of soviet guns using it would also be only improved with hotter ammo and better sighting gadgets.

While 38 super does fall behind tokarev, 9x25dillon still stands strong, being almost a direct improvement over 7.62x25 in all categories, throwing bullets with similar SD at speeds equal to the hottest stuff, therefore resulting in a similar trajectory while delivering more than 50% greater energy with each shot, all at the cost of increasing the case base diameter by 1mm. This thing truly is a beast.

I added a pic of a nice Russian SMG chambered in this round.


a138e2  No.636065

>>636046

Finally. i've found the final info on tokarev performance. It gains ~300fps from +6" barrel if using weaker Russian ammo and around 200fps when using hotter Czech stuff from about the same length. The latter is probably a specific load and so we can expect around additional 300fps from using a 10" barrel. Also the soviets might have chosen a weaker load to prevent Mauser pistols that were commonly used from blowing up immediately.

There's also been some guy that tested loads using a TT and a modified rifle with 20" barrel, gaining around 450fps with better loads, so the potential of the cartridge might not stop at 10".

And the cartridge's pressures are around 36kpsi with some loads reaching 39k so there's even more room for improvements.

That's the definition of an SMG

>The AR-15 is only a rifle if you don't call it an SMG

Being honest the Russian nomenclature system is retarded since it puts an MP 18 in the same category as a G3. That right there, that doesn't work.

Don't worry though, we're actually worse since we lack words for half the things that go into guns which is why we call magazines "frames" and triggers "sparkers"(because lighters have those and they're kind of like lighters except nothing like lighters). Also we don't have a word for "bolt"…no I'm not shitting you, the Macedonian language has no word for the primary component of a firearm.

I don't know how this is a thing, it is.

>you could have so much more than 9mm Parabelum

You couldn't because there's no point. You gain nothing for that extra recoil that isn't made redundant by the existence of intermediate rifle cartridges(especially 5.56 NATO and 5.45 Soviet).

The reason 9mm Parabelum is the only cartridge worth considering in an SMG(or service sidearm) is because you get great ballistics in a very controllable cartridge and you don't need anything else.

Apply that to whatever's roughly equivalent in Russian ammo.

>that's not how objective works

It is if you're aware of the purpose of a comma in a sentence.

Since I mentioned the G3 as an SMG, I know a guy that cut one down on both ends. It was essentially a stockless SBR in .308…I'll be honest with you, I wasn't one bit surprised when I he ended up in the hospital with a broken wrist and some missing teeth.

He was lucky, the stupid nigger was shooting an actual G3 on full auto.

>SMGs are great for home defense

Theoretically? Yes, not better than a semi-auto intermediate rifle, but very good.

In practice? Most people are pretty shit at controlling full-auto weapons, even people that have handled full auto weapons are pretty shit at it unless they've put in lots of practice(and I mean shit loads). So what's more likely to happen than you dealing with a home invasion efficiently is you making your house look like the Reichstag circa May 2, 1945. Woe betide your pets, furniture and any low flying aircraft in the area.

I'd also advise against select-fire rifles for the purpose of home defense for the same reason, too easy to accidentally switch to full-auto(or be stupid enough to let the stress get to you and do it on purpose) and send bullets flying into your neighbor's house through the living room wall.

The Kiraly was pretty good actually. The Swiss abomination on the other hand…well…I'll put it to you this way, it can be considered unnecessarily complicated by toggle lock standards. Also it's a toggle lock SMG…a sideways toggle-lock SMG…which I just realized is using a reused Mosin stock.

Out of longer barrels this is true enough, but when we're talking SBR lengths, it seems to me that some of the more powerful pistol cartridges have 5.56 beat in terms of muzzle energy and sectional density, with the added advantage of not breathing fire.

Thanks strelok, there's plenty of information in this thread so if you wanted to help up you might want to read some of it. You can also ask questions if you need as they are pretty on-topic of SMG discussion. Or just post some good pictures or design elements. Whatever you feel like.

>>636083

>That's the definition of an SMG

No, i was talking specifically about soyboy class of pistol rounds.

>we lack words for half the things that go into guns

Yeah, there are plenty of overly long, complicated terms that are often conflated and work poorly. We have a word with the literal translation of a "trigger" used as a hammer or striker, while calling the actual trigger a "triggering hook" or something, which is why they are often conflated.

>You gain nothing for that extra recoil that isn't made redundant by the existence of intermediate rifle cartridges

Only because soyboy rifle cartridges are used as a substitute of proper pistol ones. Actual intermediate rifle cartridges in 6-7mm caliber would be a lot more useful and even fix some of the logistical mess they've created.

>The reason 9mm Parabelum is the only cartridge worth considering in an SMG(or service sidearm) is because you get great ballistics in a very controllable cartridge and you don't need anything else.

Wew lad

>great ballistics

Even 9mm +p is barely tolerable in terms of muzzle energy and doesn't fly well past 100m, usually limited to 50-75 at best. And that's with all the power of modern technologies trying their best to keep a severely outdated cartridge afloat because some guys can't afford to spend much in one go.

>very controllable cartridge

Compared to what? 9x18makarov is even more controllable, it can actually be implemented in autopistols. It doesn't make it a first pick or even a good choice.

The only argument for muh 9mm is its price but the only thing responsible for it is that it was widespread and it seemed cheaper for someone to keep it around than improve stuff. Especially since keeping things around and slowly turning them into a money sink is what bureaucrats live off.

>>636090

>Theoretically? Yes, not better than a semi-auto intermediate rifle, but very good

Intermediate cartridges suffer a lot from overpenetration, even the wimpiest ones. It's also notable that PCC are THE easiest type of weapons to shoot, which might be important for someone who doesn't spend much time training and having other stuff to do. There's also length, which can be a problem if you're using a proper 556 20" AR - it could be problematic to move around the house and especially around the corners, risking being disarmed too. On the other hand, if you shorten the rifle you've got yourself an extremely loud gun that will harm your ears, blind you and will be hard to control(AK74U is notable for being harder to control than a full sized variant, with its purpose being a PDW for personnel that'd spend less time training to shoot itfacepalm) as other anon has pointed out.

>Most people are pretty shit at controlling full-auto weapons

Yeah, that's a pretty valid concern but it doesn't have much to do with our options, as both of them do have it.

In a team? Yeah. On your own? Doubtful. Same is true for assault rifles, the mags are small because it's assumed your buddy can cover you when you're reloading.

Home invasions take place over a period of minutes and you need to be fighting on a single mag the entire time, which means either a regular semi auto pistol or if it's full auto it needs to have a large magazine and a lot of bullets. Or ridiculous discipline.

That's one reason why the machine gun ban is ridiculous, it can't even be used effectively by people.


a138e2  No.636178

More information on 7.62x25. It's pressures are rated at 36kpsi CIP and no manufacturers make +p ammo, it seems. There's plenty of underloaded or weaker ammo compared to modern commercial loads and hotter surplus like the Czech ones, but it might mean that it's others that do use weaker than maximal loads. I'm positively sure that S&B has made ammo with 1600fps and it does show that in specs even now, clearly stating that it follows CIP standards and the ammo is not +p. This means that our best "normal" loads alone are capable of achieving 500ft-lbs of muzzle energy. All with pressure that's greater than normal 9mm by only 1kpsi. There have been mentions of loads that could achieve velocities over 1700fps, presumably reaching 38kpsi pressure that some mentions also suggest, which is an average 9mm+p pressure. There were also some mentions of the C.U.P. tests that determined the round's pressure limits at 42kpsi, which is substantially more but i'm unsure if they should be used or trusted.

So tokarev does indeed show great potential, especially with modern metallurgy and some modernized brass that would raise the pressure limits. Another thing that can be improved about it is the bullet selection - not only subsonic or low drag bullets can be interesting but most importantly hollow points, as they are at this point the determining factor of its efficiency and the issue with them has already killed it once. There are a few hollow point bullet choices on the market but their performance varies from limited to far from perfect, as they often have solid base and brass petals with little lead left on them, losing it in tissue. This round would probably be the one that'd benefit most from these new "bonded jacket" hollow points technology. It's still a viable choice with existing ones, as they do offer enough expansion to stop slightly beyond penetration requirement threshold so they do work and dump the energy pretty well but they could be much better.

I also wonder if it was used in any competitions - it shoots flat, produces low recoil and enough gasses to power a compensator and offers the same capacity as your 9mm and more energy than the 38 super they use. Is it ignorance or they aren't using energy as measure of power?

I've written down and compared the rounds we looked at before and i could find enough data on, so here's my conclusions:

7.62x25 tokarev - amazing for pistols, great gains in rifles but it still doesn't quite get to 556 energy levels, unlike others, whether it matters or not.

9x25dillon - problematic, loudness is compared to 7.5" AR. It does match 357mag power levels from 6" barrel almost perfectly with lighter bullets, being only few dozens fps faster. Little info on loads and no info on performance from longer barrels, mostly just usual forum trash. If fixed, could be the best option both as a powerful pistol and an SMG round.

10mm - while popular, powerful and almost adored, its performance increase from longer barrels matches only usual weaker pistol cartridges, resulting in similar % increase as 9mm or 40sw. BBTI blogs have provided some very valuable information on the topic of performance from longer barrels. Basically, there are pistol cartridges and there are magnum cartridges, with magnum ones being capable of gaining over 50% energy increase with barrel length. There are only a few such cartridges and they talk about almost none that fit in autoloaders. 10mm, while is a good choice and deserves more is not very suited for the role. Especially since it is a bit weaker than its bottlenecked counterpart.

.40 Super - amazing energy, most of the ones i've got data on and fit in common pistols(unlike 500AE). No data otherwise. Probably too powerful for being universal but it has a niche and deserves more fame along the 10mm.

45 Super - one of the rounds tested by BBTI that do perform well from long barrels. It actually gains quite a bit of energy, beaten by 357mag but still coming pretty close, offering more energy at the start. Its speed to SD ratio is not very impressive and would result in a pretty steep pressure curve and its recoil would too be limiting but it's another option, as well as something we can go to if we're unable to fix issues with dillon in 10mm case, as we can go to the greater capacity of 45acp's one.

Also, for streloks with access to guns and money out there - if you're interested in getting yourself a handgun paired with a PCC or just a powerful PCC you've actually got plenty of good options out there, that are if you choose to go with 45 Super cartridge. Not only does it offer a bit more power than 10mm, it also fits in many 45acp handguns that can withstand it and is one of the few cartridges that actually perform well out of long barrels so you won't be wasting your effort by using it. BBTI guy did shoot Beretta Px4 storm in this cartridge and it functioned well without need for any readjustments and signs of increased wear.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9%C3%9725mm_Mauser#C96

>In 1940, Mauser officials proposed using the C-96 as the vehicle for an upgrade to the 9×25mm cartridge to match the ballistics of the .357 Magnum. The upgrade would entail increasing the velocity to 450 m/s and introducing a crimp around the mouth of the case.

Of course the source is a book that most likely doesn't have much more to say. And based on the date they most likely wanted to use the longer 140mm barrel, instead of the Bolo's 99mm.

The mention seems like an overly generous estimate with no real data to back it up. Based on the information i have, cartridge dimensions of 9x25 and 38super are very similar, with mauser case being longer but OAL being the same and differing only in 1kpsi of max pressure. You won't get to magnum levels with this and 9x23mm winchester beats it hands down, while still lacking case capacity and power of the magnum.

>So, how many Joules does .45 Super deliver?

The vertical axis of the graph shows energy in ft-lbs, horizontal is barrel length. You can use that as a reference along other calibers for your desired barrel length. It's around 820ft-lbs from 6" barrel, slightly beating 10mm at this point.

Is the bolt face only there to centre the cartridge during feeding, or is it also supporting the rim of the cartridge so that it doesn't deform? I suspect it would be a bad idea to use the same bolt face for 9mm Parabellum and 10mm Auto, but I want to be sure.


fc8ced  No.640004

Not totally sure, but extraction is a part of the bolt face. So, center, hold tight into the chamber, and yank it back out with precisely linear force.

You can fudge bolt faces a little, but not a lot … but given the pressures involved I bet pistols (& PCCs) are less sensitive than rifles with 3-5x the internal pressures.

Actually, i've got an update - i added 327 magnum, which performance is quite promising if we ignore the pressure difference between it and 357mag. 45Kpsi is a serious upgrade over 357 with its 35K. Other than that, it seems that 327mag does copy 7.62x25 tokarev ballistics minus the additional pressure, with a bit more power. Interestingly enough, 327mag does copy the energy of 556 pretty closely from 10+" while still operating at lower pressure even if my example load here is not the very best one, as well as being very close in SD to a 55gr bullet. Surely, it won't fly just as well because it uses flat-nose bullets and its trajectory would be quite steeper but still, it is pretty funny. I wonder is 10mm could be necked down to .312 to have similar performance. I'll look for the case capacity of 327 as there's none on wikipedia to compare.

Sure, though it'll be just a point, not a line as i'll only have single barrel length.

>>640285

Thanks, i've looked it up and 357SIG has the same capacity so that's not bad.

I think i'll be using 30 carbine as a standard for now as it seems pretty viable and can have 450ft-lbs at 200m, with max range for M1 carbine written as 300m, which is overestimation but still better than 7.62x25 tokarev's 150m. 9mm case width does seem pretty limiting, with neither 38 super nor tokarev having nearly the same case capacity as any .40 rim width cartridge, aside from unusable in handguns monsters like 30 carbine itself.

Unfortunately, i only have data on 2 barrel lengths for 30 carbine so if you have any data on barrel lengths around 8-16" i'll be very grateful as i only have 18" and 6".

Picrelated is overview of common modern autoloder cartridges and it seems like 357SIG does offer only a little bit more power over 40SW that can be explained by their pressure difference so it seems like bottlenecked cartridges don't have any significant differences over just straight-walled ones using bullets of the same weight, aside from greater sectional density, of course. It might even lose a bit, though bullets this light would cause additional problems that would prevent that.

I have to say, 10mm is quite a confusing cartridge. Paradoxically, it makes one cartridge that has most long barrel performance(9x25mm dillon) and the one that has the least(357SIG, on par with 3 other pistol calibers), all while retaining the same base diameter, taper, width, neck, shoulder length and angle and being different in only capacity, while resulting in completely opposite performance.

There's a guy that formed 10mm brass into 357SIG with longer neck, without otherwise changing dimensions.

http://10mm-firearms.com/wildcats/357-sig-long-neck/

I'd really like to see what a variety of powders can each of the three cartridges use and how does it change their performance.

An interesting note about bottlenecks - they offer an ability to use cartridges with different OAL the same way revolver rounds do, for example guns chambered in 22tcm(OAL of 38super) can accept 22tcm 9R that has OAL of 9mm. It can matter or offer options in rounds with longer bullets that extend outside of the case like tokarev. Or can your straight-walled rounds do that as well? Can you seat 9mm bullet deeper and use the round in 9x18 makarov if their cases were the same length?


a138e2  No.640405

I've looked into the cartridge and it's a trimmed down 10mm magnum necked down to 7.5mm. It does deliver great amounts of energy similar to 9x25 dillon with better SD but they use their own caliber. They also make a gun with it but they are the only patent owners and manufacturers of both. They seemed to try to dampen recoil in the gun instead of picking a weaker cartridge and it'd all be pretty interesting and promising if the whole story didn't smell like concentrated shit. They lied about designing the cartridge from the ground, used vague wording to make it seem like they got a contract from military, use a long cartridge that specifically doesn't fit any other gun and bullet diameter that only they manufacture, proprietary everything so they keep it all and 7K$ for the gun. This one cartridge does pretty well at range and is more powerful than dillon, having 80ft-lbs more at the same SD, with more velocity. I wonder how would necking the latter to the same caliber would compare, probably the energy gap would grow a bit but not by much. There's also no data on longer barrels so i guess into the trash this blatant money grab goes.

I've found an interesting cartridge from the guys that made the VBR-B PDW, it's called 7.92x24 and is basically a shortened 30 carbine that fits in either 45 or 9mm platform, depending on the configuration. It's not much in terms of power, being slightly stronger than basic 9x19 with 44Kpsi pressure(in the shortest configuration) but i kinda like it for being a better alternative to the 9x19. It is faster, thinner, can utilize AP bullets, has less recoil and might allow different platforms to be developed. Specifically, its smaller bolt face might allow it to run mild loads of it in blowback pistols, thus making it a solid "base" cartridge, unlike 9x19 that only hinders progress by being incompatible with both blowback(almost) and longer rounds like 38 super and 10mm.

Overall, i really start to think that 8mm caliber is the optimal choice, despite the availability and variety of 9mm bullets. 327 magnum shows great performance with just 19g H2O capacity, being on par with 30 carbine in most cases(beating it from shorter barrels and going slightly behind from longer ones, though it might depend on the loads in question as they are used differently), with its outer dimensions being not very dissimilar to tokarev, aside from the rim.

It seems that most handgun cartridges suffer from steep trajectory more than they do from energy loss, so i guess they could get more with lighter bullets and the only limiting factor to that would be bullet technology. That seems to be the case with things like liberty civil defense ammo that carries more energy than all its competitors but performs similarly at best due to its fragmenting bullets that they have to use instead of HPs. It does shoot flatter, recoils milder and weights less than other ammo still, which is all a good plus. So, if we can solve the problem with sectional density of the lighter bullets we can have a round that performs optimally on the whole desired range. It can be done by necking a cartridge up to a certain caliber so we have the same powder behind the light bullet but the bullet still has high sectional density, thus allowing proper expanding projectiles) and carries similar energy while flying flatter. We'd probably lose a bit of power if the neck is too small compared to the body but it can actually gain in energy due to freed case capacity from the use of lighter bullets, like it happens with 10mm/9x25dillon, 45acp/38-45 Clarke and(to less extent) 40SW/357SIG. Even 7.62x25 tokarev shows how much of a difference does it make when compared to 38 super, carrying same energy with better penetration, less recoil, flatter trajectory and similar energy retention downrange(yes, it is longer but their overall dimensions are pretty similar, even with latter being tapered and having less capacity while being longer). It really makes you wonder why has this not been done before as often as it should, as i really don't see why wouldn't anyone transition to bottlenecked cartridges, aside from butthurt reloaders and slightly increased production costs that'd be driven irrelevant over time. Rifles did that long time ago, so the only reason i see is lack of interest that has tuned the cartridge category into so much of a letdown.

I've come to think that the best design would be something like a 10mm necked down to .32 caliber, optimized for similar performance as 327 magnum. That'd give us formidable performance both from pistol barrels of many ranges and long rifle ones. Basically, we've already got an almost perfect autoloading pistol round characteristics in it, compared to 357magnum that is, while powerful and magnificent, suboptimal choice from my perspective, as its heavy recoil does lend itself better in revolvers with their small capacity and bad triggers, while autoloaders' configurations do allow for more rapid shots and reduce recoil. So, you still have 640(instead of 720)ft-lbs of energy from a 5" barrel and 1060ft-lbs from 18"(10 less than 30 carbine) instead of 1240. Sure, this does sacrifice some power, but it'd allow for a more comfortable to shoot handgun(327 can have 1/2 recoil of 357) and lighter and more controllable rifle as well as fly at slightly flatter trajectory too. Maybe we could get even more power out of this as 10mm case does have plenty of capacity to spare(9x25 dillon still has 22.8 compared to 19 of 327) so we could either move the shoulder down(which we probably will have to do to improve short barrel performance) and either extend the neck for better accuracy or shorten the case to allow the use of heavier bullets without increasing the OAL. 10mm case does have room to spare so even with fiddling over cartridge design we could probably achieve at least the same performance. That is, if we ever going to do that.

Fuck me, ruskie bro, you've been busy in my absense.

If you can make the bullet diameter .308, you can make the cartridge accept a great variety of 30 caliber bullets as it is, and make the standard an aerodynamic 115 grain bullet sitting on top of a quantity of w296 powder to give .357 power from it with *much* better ballistics. The addition of a bottleneck means the feeding is going to be more reliable too given the correct neck angle- 40 degrees is sufficient. Given a .308 die set that I am going to buy soon enough and a 10mm case from somewhere, this is probably doable as a demonstration of the cartridge.

I don't really mind using .308 bullets, aside from the fact that going .312 caliber might be a little easier. Heavier bullets take up less space, necking up might require less annealing and fatter bullets can offer more capacity when using lighter ones if we're going with that one and so .312 caliber might be a better balanced spot, though i can't really see all the upsides and downsides of that. All of this is a bit too much for me to handle without any practical experience in either reloading or engineering. I'm really kinda confused as i don't really see downsides to using smaller caliber, aside from a bit more complicated production. 224BOZ does deliver almost 700ft-lbs from 5" barrel if they aren't lying, which comes with 2500fps velocity and sectional density comparable to 125gr .327. The only thing i can think of, outside of it being a lie, is that the cartridge sacrifices long barrel performance by being optimized for faster powders but i can't grasp how that works and how to fix that. I even torrented a few AGI DVDs as they seemed to have some info on topic of wildcatting but i've not found that one in there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Interestingly, tokarev uses .308 bullets, unlike other Russian 7.62 cartridges.

https://www.shootersforum.com/wildcat-cartridges/70501-10mm-necked-down-32-caliber.html

I've found a mention of a wildcat that a guy was developing. It basically was 10mm necked down to .312 and it does look pretty nice. Has a longer neck, 35 degree shoulder, 19.7 capacity, which is inbetween 327 and 30carbine(though with seated bullet(no info on grains) it's 15.1 compared to 13.8 for the 327). 10mm(37.5K) does have 1Kpsi smaller operating pressures than 30 carbine(38.5K) and substantially smaller than 327 magnum(45K). My estimations are that it wouldn't be far behind, though i'm not sure. Does anyone know case capacity of 30 carbine with at least 100gr and 327mag with 113gr(115 will do too) and 85gr(or similar, it's not that important here) bullets to compare these 2 with bullets of similar SD and compare 327's capacity with different bullets as weight was not mentioned in the wildcat.

From what i dunderstand, steeper shoulder angle allows faster powder burn, so less steep angle might allow burn rate slower than 357SIG that only has 0.1gr less space empty, so it can be loaded with slower powder and not get SIG's piss poor long barrel performance. Still, even if everything else is perfect, i'd strengthen the case to allow pressures of at least 327 magnum levels. 10mm magnum cases could probably do that, how high is its operating pressure?

On the picture shown the bullet seems to be a 100gr one, so if case capacity is with this one then it's not all bad. What weight do you think it is? Pics related are - first is 85, 2 and 3 is 100 and 4th is 115gr.

I still don't get one thing - do bottlenecks increase or decrease case capacity with seated bullets? If it depends on the bullet, at what point does this equation change?

It seems like i've searched through most of the info i could find so now i'll either have to go looking for information on wildcatting or get into reloading software. The first on seems to be pretty hard to find so i'll start looking into all this magic stuff you make predictions with. Does anyone have any suggestions on which program i should pick? Hopefully not something rare, i'll have to torrent it as i can't find any spare money on purely theoretical opportunity within a single hobby for now.

I love conversations like this because SMG's are very cool even if they're considered a bit outdated. One role I can see the SMG shining in in the modern era is their ability to dominate in a "pistol" fight. Within reason, a lot of SMG layouts are almost as concealable as pistols. I've only ever shot two SMG's and those were a stamped M-11 and a stamped Model A Uzi. The shitty wire stock and high ROF turned me off to the M-11. The Uzi was surprisingly controllable and the underfolder was a lot better than I expected. It's a fucking chunk though and you can kind of tell it was done in a hurry and meant for soldiers and not spoopy shit. Maybe a more modern, closed bolt design that incorporates a rate reducing pawl like the AK uses would be good? I don't know a ton about the various, uncommon loads but how about just some hot 9mm AP? Maybe if it had a similar design to Russian 7N1 with an air pocket near the front and a steel knocker? Again, I'm not sure how well that design would work in a pistol round since it's originally like 152gr and fired from a rifle. There's just something that turns me off about using uncommon rounds but I guess if the round was good enough, it wouldn't be uncommon for long.

SMGs aren't outdated, just misplaced, along with other weapons.

>Within reason, a lot of SMG layouts are almost as concealable as pistols

No, only very few SMGs are wearable and absolutely none are as concealable and compact as all but the largest of pistols. Concealable SMGs are a dead end. Wearable, on the other hand, have their place even if they'd not be as effective as full-sized ones or rifles. It really depends on whether you want to carry it on a sling or on a hip.

>Maybe a more modern, closed bolt design

It was done in a few years after spread of UZI and was called MP5. It became so popular it still is very common despite more interest in short barrel rifles.

>I don't know a ton about the various, uncommon loads but how about just some hot 9mm AP?

It can work but the effectiveness is questionable. Check out the thread, there's some comparisons and examples. I'd prefer lower caliber(.308-.312) high velocity monomaterial pointed spoon tip bullet to have at least some lethality instead of just hardly punching through a piece of armor.

>There's just something that turns me off about using uncommon rounds

Bad idea, almost all rounds that are currenlty in use are horribly outdated. Unfortunately, spread of these rounds makes development and production of new ones a lot less sustainable unless some government agency starts using them.

Lots of interesting discussion here. Especially interested in 7.5fk round, I'm really hoping the market picks that up and we see caliber conversions/mags and ammo become more and more available.

Anyone here mess with 960 rowland? Seems like a really interesting "barrel only" conversion. Seen load testing out there where shorter 108grn bullets are pushing high 1400/low 1500 fps. Lighter solid copper bullets could be pushed faster, clearly, and I personally am a fan of velocity.

What's with all these randomly shaped tips? They have worse drag and accuracy than dome tips, if you want more drag in the body you go with expansion tips, if you want more drag in the air you use flat or concave tip, and under no circumstances you would want lower accuracy.

It's proprietary, comes from one manufacturer that also makes the only pistol for it and it costs 7500$. So no, kill it with fire and take its developers with it.

The rowland guy is a lying faggot that makes worthless shit with an overpriced tag. His 460 round is nothing but your basic 45 super with lengthened case so that you can only get ammo from this fag.

Ok, i counted numbers and it seems like lower-pressure 7.92x24 can run in a blowback pistol, it just may have to be loaded down a bit and will have energy similar to 9x18 makarov, the hotter ~300ft-lbs one, and not all blowback pistols might be able to handle it. Makarov more likely could and PMM could probably handle a proper load if it could accept it. It requires 1.5lb bolt for full power(355ft-lbs) load, while 9x19 requires 1.8(can be higher with hotter loads or +p, i used basic federal from wikipedia) and 380 needs 1.2lb. It's a bit unclear about 9x18 because most US ammo is pretty weak and russian sources often lie and contained contradictory information, but overall, it's either 1.4 or 1.5lbs bolt weight. I start liking this round even more, as it can fit in blowback, has variable sizes, good enough in power, has mild recoil and is thinner than 9mm, which can not only allow greater capacity(especially in smaller pistols), but allow double stack pistols to be more concealable.It could even be a proper double stack at that Oh, and it uses 30 carbine brass too, so it doesn't need much changes to implement production. And, as was mentioned it even has AP bullets. The only issue i have with it is its 46K pressure, though i don't know whether it could cause any inconveniences like making +P ammo or something.

Apparently, there's also 380acp length variant, not just 45/9mm ones. Also, my data is for the 9mm version, 45 length might be quite a bit more powerful.

Also, there seems to be very little info about this all VBR stuff(both PDW, round and glock conversion), and i've found a mention that it's because Belgian feds censored them really hard. Their information was quite a bit more informative before, with several sites, youtube videos and such, but almost all has been removed.

File: 227bf004dcfb471⋯.png (58.44 KB, 1127x634, 1127:634, pistol rounds comparison.png)

I've looked at common pistol calibers long ago and they seemed to divide in a few separate groups, so i took my time and summarized my data and that's what i've found out:

Modern pistol calibers can mostly be divided into three categories:

"From poor to barely enough", including anything from 380 to 9mm+P and up to around 450ft-lbs. I thought that that cited FBI research that found out that 9mm equals 40 and 45 has at least some merit but if it wasn't an outright lie, it was heavily rigged, as even the hottest 9mm+p doesn't reach the energy of 45(not even +P) or 40SW

"Alright" - here's your common defensive ammo, mostly 40SW, 45acp+P and 357SIG, being around 550-600ft-lbs. They are alright.

"Breddy good" - yes, here's your 10mm(though if you're not using hot loads look at 40SW instead) and 45 super, they are a serious step up over those above.

There's place for one more category - Holy smokes, Batman! - including 9x25dillon, 38 casull and 40 super but we're not talking about these

Also, in regards to the use of rounds in straight blowback issue, i've found that most 380 loads need 1.2lb bolt, not including +P(that runs up to 1.38lb), while heavy 9x18+P requires 1.51lb bolt(compared to 1.25 for standard load). It does run fine in makarov, though its life might be more limited. I suppose PMM that has a bit heavier slide and (unnecessary for me) spiral grooves in the chamber that increase friction would fix the problem and allow to run hotter ammo(Such as Russian PMM FMJ that runs 370ft-lbs and requires 1.52lb bolt, though very sharp heavy recoil does cause problems with the round). Our round, as mentioned, requires 1.54lb bolt in its basic configuration(with 360ft-lbs) and can either be downloaded to 330ft-lbs to match the 1.51lb of the not-extremely-terrible +P buffalo bore load, so it certainly can be used in blowback in at least some way. Standard or hotter loads, on the other hand, might require a heavier bolt, though adding 100grams to makarov slide(assuming we're not required to change bolt travel and grip size to accept longer cartridge) is not very hard to do, so this cartridge also has potential to have cheap pistols made for not just from Hi-point. Oh, and by the way, the bolt required to run basic 9mm is 1.9lb - 20% more than our cartridge.

I also really like the idea of backwards compatibility of variants of the cartridge - you can chamber the shorter variants in the guns with longer ones, simplifying logistics. That way, you can have you main pistol in 9mm length, smg in 45 length and staff have 380 length, and SMGs that use most ammo will be able to use all the stuff others use. Imagine if 380 used 9x19 case and pressures, differing only in the depth of seated bullet - you could have same cases, bullets and have compatible rounds, all while having a 380 that's superior to the one we have today.

It could actually be a non-shitty FAMAS, or not over-engineered Belgian meme magic? They had a handgun that was designed to look as a fucking revolver.

Care to quickly summarize what your changes were and why? Looks like you took .357 SIG and lengthened the neck a bit–I assume to make more room for powder and/or longer bullets, so that you can replicate .357 mag ballistics in heavier loadings than 125 gr? There's also some changes to casehead dimensions, but I'm too small brain to understand the implications right away. Is it to withstand the higher pressures? How long is the new cartridge compared to original .357 SIG? Will it still fit in "small" pistol frames that are designed for 9mm and .40?


a138e2  No.644221

>>644120

I basically moved the shoulder forward by the length of it, without changing other dimensions like the base or the rim. I also extended case length to match that of 10mm, so now it has longer neck. It's OAL is now that of 10mm as well, so it won't fit in 9mm frame. It was designed to give the case more capacity to actually match 357mag ballistics, at least from shorter barrels, as 357SIG uses hotter loads to match milder ones in its predecessor. The difference is not a lot but it's there.

Case head is unchanged, though it could be changed to accept other type of primers if that seems useful. The pressures are the same as that of 10mm, though it's possible to use tougher brass for higher pressures at the cost of some capacity. Given its generous amount, it could be an improvement. I didn't really look into 10mm magnum a lot, there's not much info.

>How long is the new cartridge compared to original .357 SIG?

It's larger and a bit more powerful due to greater capacity and ability to higher seat bullet. It could also possibly offer better than poor 357SIG's long barrel performance. I wanted it to be a middle ground between 357SUG and 9x25mm dillon, which is more powerful but generates too uncomfortable muzzle blast to use in a pistol(as if it was a rifle cartridge). Dillon does have similar dimensions but it's basically 357SIG lengthened in the body - its neck and bottleneck are the same length and dimensions.

>>640386

There's been a guy that formed 357SIG DIRECTLY out of 10mm, so it only had longer neck and his performance was already pretty good, but i designed this one before i found that, and i still think that mine would perform greater from longer barrels while being probably slightly more powerful that 357mag from short barrel. You can check my graphs here, they describe velocity gain from different barrels for different calibers.


a138e2  No.644252

>>644221

Wanted to correct myself: the cartridge would probably me close or better than 10mm, not on the level of 357SIG.

The purpose of the cartridge was to copy 357 magnum performance in an autoloader without it being too big and having at least some long-barrel performance. Now i've kinda changed the scope and picked another caliber but this one is also alright, along with other ones mentioned.

There's one more thing about 357SIG i've found out - it's either misunderstanding on my side or a fucking scam. 357mag is most popular in revolvers with 4" barrels, which is what most think of when they hear 357 revolver. The problem is, the actual barrel length, if measured as in pistols, is ~6" because of retarded regulations. What follows this is 357magnum is thought of in terms of its power from 6" barrel, not 4", and that's a significant difference that puts it in a whole another category because its gains from barrel lengths are greater than almost any other pistol cartridge. Basically, 357 magnum is equal to 10mm from 6" but 40SW from 4". 357SIG replicates magnum's performance from actual 4" barrel, which equals to a 2.75" snub nose revolver, and while it almost accomplishes what it claims, it highly relies on speculation from this misunderstanding.

I've already mentioned how 357SIG doesn't seem to be much of an improvement over 40SW in theory, even if it's generally loaded hotter, so that's another point towards it being a letdown.

Perhaps I'm reading the picture wrong. Looking at the two topmost drawings, it seems you have slightly different dimensions for the casehead diameter and angle.

>>644252

>There's one more thing about 357SIG i've found out - it's either misunderstanding on my side or a fucking scam.

Wouldn't it be the other way around? Because the revolver has an extra ~2 inches of "barrel" from the chamber, if the SIG claim is that it can replicate the performance of a 4“ barrel revolver out of a 4" barrel autoloader, isn't it in effect replicating the performance of 6" of revolver out of a 4" barrel?

Also, still reading through the whole thread, but what's the cartridge of choice at the moment?


a138e2  No.644302

>>644288

The two drawings on the top are 10mm and 357SIG for reference, 2nd row is the same but without the numbers, down left comparison is them altogether and right one is a finished cartridge with a more aerodynamic bullet. The case heads might differ a bit but probably don't matter as they all are the same family and their parts are interchangeable iirc.

>the SIG claim is that it can replicate the performance of a 4“ barrel revolver out of a 4" barrel autoloader

They don't specify which way is their revolver barrel measured, so it could be that they were talking about 2.75" barrel revolver, using a correct measurement method.

>isn't it in effect replicating the performance of 6" of revolver out of a 4" barrel?

Absolutely not. It struggles to match 357mag from a 4"(measured to the breech face, like autoloaders do) barrel and, as i mentioned before, 357 magnum gains a lot more from longer barrels even when compared to other magnum cartridges. From 4" both SIG and magnum have around 600ft-lbs of energy, with the first having 20 more for the hottest loads available, while from 6" barrel SIG gains 70ft-lbs, while magnum gains 200, matching 10mm auto in terms of power. It's really got unusually high gains from longer barrel.

So, to sum up, 357SIG is a misunderstanding at best and a lie and speculation at worst. It still a pretty good defensive ammo that shoots flatter and with less recoil than 40SW, and has hotter loads in general and slightly more powerful(like 40ft-lbs) hot ones due to higher operating pressures.

>Also, still reading through the whole thread, but what's the cartridge of choice at the moment?

For now i've rejected 9mm caliber because despite the great commonality and bullet selection it would have too much recoil for desired velocities and sectional densities, albeit with more power. Something like aforementioned 357 auto could have 357-sih performance from 6" barrel and lose less from 4", while retaining more gain from longer ones than most pistol cartridges, allowing efficient use in SMGs as well but it'd have the recoil of 357 magnum which, while ok in rifles, is a bit problematic in pistols, especially autoloaders that lend themselves for more rapid shooting than revolvers. It probably could be changed by using lighter bullets but they'd lose SD and limit expanding ammo options so much that it's easier to pick a new one.

I've stopped at 327 magnum as a golden standard - it's performance is in the better half of the 530-600ft-lbs defensive ammo(read:40sw or mild 10mm, 45+p, 357SIG, 2.75" 357mag) while recoiling "slightly more than mp shield" in a revolver, which means that it'd recoil even less in an autoloader. But wait, there's more - it almost matches 30 carbine from similar barrel lengths and doing that with as little as 19gr case capacity, compared to 21.4gr for 10mm, for example. I didn't choose smaller caliber because i fear that'd require longer bullets that'd increase OAL more, though i'm uncertain on this matter due to lack of dedicated research of this topic. I've found someone actually designing a similar cartridge with dedicated software but i don't know how to use that and have no equipment so it stays still for now. >>640898

And my research was about terminal ballistics, not internal, i've mistaken again.

It was on topic of efficiency of higher velocity bullets in damaging tissue compared to heavier ones and how can they compare when using different bullet types. Basically, what if we're using a lighter bullet with the same energy and slower expansion to achieve similar penetration and performance. From what i've found, it is possible to achieve similar performance with some differences. I've tried searching for similar in energy examples like 10mm/357mag, 556/44mag, 556/30 carbine, 9mm+p/tokarev but there was almost no ballistic data and what was there was incomprehensible due to differences in ballistic gel everyone was using. The only somewhat consistent source were schematics like pics related, and there were very few of those. That was until i stumbled upon several 308 graphs. This round did have common energy with another one i had - 45/70 but i wasn't sure about that. Happily, there was 12ga slug graph that not only had a round with equal energy, but identical penetration as well. From that point, things started to make sense - the cartridges have similar energy, penetrate the same length and one of them moves at substantially slower velocity than another. So we've got to look at the graphs and determine what's the difference. Well, the difference is that slower bullet created smaller temporary cavity but greater permanent one. Both bullets seem to hold together rather well and from my observations it seems like fragmentation is the only way to "lose" energy, otherwise it'll be converted in either temporary or permanent cavity. The bullets do have different starting diameter but it seems that this correlation remains the same - you have slower bullet that transforms less energy into smaller temp cavity and faster one that loses it more quickly. So, to increase our temp cavity and limit penetration we use expanding ammo, reaching a certain distance of penetration, but if we use a bullet with expansion coefficient viable for slower bullet as a faster one it'll lose its energy more quickly and underpenetrate, so we have to use a bullet with smaller expansion coefficient. This results in less expansion but greater temporary cavity due to more rapid loss of energy that results in a sharper, taller "wave", rather than more prolonged and thin one of the slower bullet. Basically, lighter bullet "pushes" tissue away more and heavier bullet crushes and "pulls" it while losing energy.

So, it can be done and high velocity cartridges absolutely can deliver similar performance to slower and heavier ones and their underpenetration issues can be solved with proper bullet selection, resulting in greater area that can damage internal organs and weaker tissue. It's still more technologically problematic to design tougher expanding ammo that can hold together at these extreme velocities without losing expansion. Hunters, how important is temporary cavity compared to just bigger holes? Shouldn't the first one be more damaging to stuff like lung tissue?

I've also found another core problem that added to 5.56's bad reputation - not only its FMJ ammo doesn't perform well(as understood by anyone but military)but its expanding ammo does tend to break up and lose substantial part of its weight in tissue, resulting in loss of performance. My 3rd picture shows that fragmented ammo did create almost as little temporary cavity as non-fragmented one from significantly(14.5" vs 8.3") shorter barrel and almost 300ft-lbs less energy.

Interestingly, tumbling bullets tend to create slightly narrower temporary cavity(i think it's also different from different angles due to bullet flapping only 1 way, while HP expands on all sides, so there could be more inconistency) and penetrate more, acting like a very inconsistent and temporarily-expanding(and by not much too) bullet.

So the implication is that you always want your bullet to stay in one piece if possible, yes? I already knew soft points were objectively better on soft targets than fragmenting rounds, but does this suggest that it's better for an FMJ round to stay in one piece and tumble rather than fragment?

>So the implication is that you always want your bullet to stay in one piece if possible, yes?

That would be true if the bullet always stayed in target. It does not and i didn't mention the other way of losing energy - by it escaping the body.

>does this suggest that it's better for an FMJ round to stay in one piece and tumble rather than fragment?

It really depends. Both wounding mechanisms are not very good or reliable and most examples of them are only doing either of those occasionally and sometimes require both(like NATO ammo needs to tumble to fragment). I'd say that dedicated fragmenting rounds are slightly inferior to dedicated tumbling ones - they do seem to generate similar temporary cavity but fragmenting rounds generate big local permanent one while tumbling round will have better penetration, so i'd pick the latter, but that applies only to dedicated rounds like fragmenting ammo(not FMJ that occasionally can do it) and 7N6 5.45 bullet that has hollow nose that makes it tumble almost instantly. Then again, i'd probably pick 556 soft point that technically fragments over 5.45 that tumbles. Or maybe not. There's really a lot of variables and so few examples of properly performing ammo that i'd stay away from either until the situation where i don't have to choose. I can say for sure that a frangible exploding is better than an icepick, so FMJ without a dedicated tumbling mechanism is the absolutely the worst choice.

True. I know you just said there's a lot of variables, but looking at that pic, what you wrote, and my own limited knowledge, I think the following is accurate if you assume other things equal:

>dedicated expansion (SP)>dedicated tumbling (7n6 spoontip)>incidental fragment/tumble (FMJ)>icepick FMJ.

A shame that graph doesn't show M193 in comparison to all those.

I wouldn't mind to see some testing done with the ammo that tumbles like 7N6 and stays solid vs the same ammo that fragments like M855. I really don't know which one would be better. I'd bet fragmenting one would make a slightly nastier wound couldn't the military just decide to go this way for no reason, right? and tumbling one would have more penetration and a secondary "wave" like 5.45 on pic related.


a138e2  No.644470

>>644465

>dedicated expansion (SP)

I'd say "controlled expansion", as in it's optimized how much energy you dump in the tissue over penetration while having maximum weight and therefore energy retention.

>dedicated tumbling (7n6 spoontip)

Or dedicated fragmentation, as in 556 JSP because they can't make them tough enough

>incidental fragment/tumble (FMJ)

They rarely work and this tumbling is natural to any spitzer bullet, so it's mostly the same icepick FMJ. As seen on the graphs, basic ball does start to tumble over time, it's just too late most of the time to do anything.


a138e2  No.644472

>>644470

And on topic of fragmentation aftr accidental tumbling, i'm unsure it really does anything besides greater permanent cavity, especially as it depends on how did the bullet fragment and therefore how ineffective it may be. It could improve things, or it could worsen them, it probably doesn't matter at the time it works anyway, so these should be treated like a basic FMJ.


a138e2  No.644473

I think here is the question of what matters more - penetration and potential further tumbling(which is really not important) or permanent cavity that fragmenting bullet creates.

Penetration (assuming no overpen) seems like it would be more important than permanent cavity (assuming that the total surface area of temp+perm cavitation is about the same), as penetration has a wider variety of application–going through cover, getting through thick clothes, etc.

Also, since we've drifted away from SMGs to pistol cartridges and the firearms that use them, what would the pistol companion to this sub gun be? I started making a list of things I'd want to see–(gas?) delayed blowback, a fixed barrel for accuracy and easier feeding, dual-feed magazines, both for SMG compatibility and general usefulness…when I realized there's a pistol that comes close to meeting all of those criteria already, the Steyr GB. It has a fixed barrel, and the magazines are already dual-feeding to take advantage of that. It has a reputation of being an accurate gun with its fixed barrel, and the gas piston applying force opposite the direction of recoil made it a softer shooter than comparable pistols. According to reports by LE and military users, it was a very reliable gun, and fed a wide variety of ammunition without issue. The fixed barrel also lends itself better to suppressor mounting, if one is so inclined. Why not give the GB a polymer frame to save on weight, add a picatinny rail for tacticool flashlights, and scale it up just a bit to fit .357 Auto/.327 Auto/9mm Dillon/whatever? It seems like the ideal sidearm to me.

I do think tumbling ammo has more use too. It could be used as either a low-expanding ammo(temporary-expanding, technically) so it might have some application in hunting and these spoon tip bullets definitely have application in AP ammo as it's an easy way to straight up improve their performance at little loss. Tumbling ammo does almost icepicking permanet cavity though, so its potential for bleeding out might be less than the bigger and more gaping hole of the fragmenting one. Or maybe the surface of the bullet turned sideways is enough, who knows.

>>644548

>what would the pistol companion to this sub gun be?

Doesn't really matter that much. Our potential cartridge won't go beyond 10mm/45 length and so will fit in modern pistols just fine. The model in question is somewhat out of scope of SMG thread. I've too got some ideas, though.

>(gas?) delayed blowback

Yeah, i like the gas delayed blowback in pistols too as they are already oriented on semi-auto shooting anyway. I really dislike gas ports and such, though, just don't trust them, so for a more durable "military" pistol rather than general purpose sidearm i'd probably prefer either lever or roller delayed blowback, if properly designed. Here are pictures of Korriphila and Benelli B76, they use these systems.

>a fixed barrel for accuracy and easier feeding

And simpler manufacturing due to less moving parts. I really dislike the moving barrel short recoil systems.

>dual-feed magazines

Yeah, i've always told that's the way to go and the only real reason it's not done is because of stagnant industry that cannot innovate one bit and is built on faggotry around brand names.

>SMG compatibility

I'd prefer using dedicated mags, longer curved ones have more reliability and offer more flexibility in design. They could also be designed quad stack for a lot greater capacity, like that Sites SPECTRE in the OP.

>Steyr GB

I dunno, i've heard that it runs very dirty and requires a unique barrel which i dislike so it's not really perfect. Other than that, there's little info on it too.

For the gas delayed system, i very much like HK P7 gas system, it seems like a better design for me. It also uses slightly modified barrel as a spring guide rod, which is nice. There's already been Vektor CP1 and Valther CCP that use that system and it seems to be working pretty well.

>Why not give the GB a polymer frame

Maybe, generally not much of an issue. Walther CCP does that.

>a picatinny rail

It's just an accessory.

I'd like to reuse makarov FCG for its simplicity, just mate it with P7 gas system and larger frame with double stack mag.

I've been looking at performance of the tumbling 308 on the 4th pic and the 12ga slug and they do seem quite similar in terms of temp cavity, except slug has it closer to enter and has a lot bigger permanent cavity, so i wonder where does the energy of the 308 go? Could it be that my premise that you only lose energy by fragmentation is incorrect? The 308 does have almost twice the penetration and could have had lost energy before it started tumbling. Still, on my last pic there are the 3rd and 5th rounds that have same energy, almost the same penetration and still the latter deals significantly more damage and i'm unsure why could that be. Could it be that the lighter bullet has lost more energy before tumbling than heavy before expanding? Or that their data wasn't correctly showing and tumbling bullet has dealt greater damage if we look at it from the top? There seems to be some kind of inefficiency hidden within tumbling bullets, are there any anons who knows physics that might help me out with that?

SMGs have very specific uses: mostly as something that's very cheap to shit out and can be mildly effective at point blank ranges in the hands of retards and conscripts.

Well, aside from disadvantages of gas systems with their tubes, gas ports and such, i don't the intertwined nature of such systems, they all have to be too fitted together and have all these spaces, grooves and cavities inside that i don't really trust. That's why i like blowback systems - they don't require you to modify the barrel, keep pieces isolated, separate and simple, so that you can approach the weapon part by part and fit or overview any of the elements separately. Maybe it's irrational but i just don't find gas systems as trustworthy.

That's understandable to a point, I guess. I do agree that blowback and delayed-blowback are criminally underrated systems and need to be looked at more, but we shouldn't overlook the fact that gas operation and gas-delay have their place. In longarms, the gas piston–or more correctly, the many-lugged rotating bolt that gas systems operate–lends itself very well to accuracy, because the lock-up is just so damned consistent. Since blowback bolts just rest against the breach with no real locking mechanism holding them in place, they have a less consistent lock-up, which lends itself to worse accuracy. Obviously, this is partially offset by the weight of the gas tube interfering with barrel harmonics, but this can be mitigated by supporting most of the piston weight from the receiver, or indeed moving the piston inside the receiver completely. This is what the Stoner gas system, with its piston integral to the BCG, does. The gas tube and block weigh almost nothing, so they contribute almost nothing to barrel harmonics. And you can see this reflected in the precision of ARs–you can get sub-MOA performance out of the box from a $600 rifle. Don't get me wrong, delayed blowback is definitely better for an SMG than gas. Just don't discount it entirely, the system has its place, as overrated as it is.

As for gas-delayed blowback, I think it can be especially useful in pistols, because the piston directs its force in a direction opposite the movement of the slide, which reduces recoil. Seeing as the pistol rounds this project is using are on the hotter side (not unmanageable but definitely snappier recoil), I think there's some merit to using gas-delay in the pistol, especially if the frame is lightweight polymer.

>Since blowback bolts just rest against the breach with no real locking mechanism holding them in place, they have a less consistent lock-up, which lends itself to worse accuracy

Incorrect. Roller delayed blowback is the most accurate automatic system there is. Aslo, any blowback operation can have one thing a gas system never will - free floating barrel.

>this reflected in the precision of ARs

AR is nothing special. It tries to mitigate recoil impulse but that's all there is to it, and does a shitty job overall due to it shitting in the receiver. And don't get me started on straight magwell or buffer tube inside the stock. AR18 is a lot better design.

>you can get sub-MOA performance out of the box from a $600 rifle

That depends on the market condition, not the design. There's just a lot more AR barrels so the prices are low. Even a shitty AK would do the same if you out a quality barrel on it.

>As for gas-delayed blowback, I think it can be especially useful in pistols

Yes, if i strangle my deep irrational hatred fro gas systems then gas delayed blwoback is the perfect system - low recoil, few parts, simple operation, good reliability, versatility in ammo, accuracy, even ease of manufacture, probably.

>Seeing as the pistol rounds this project is using are on the hotter side

If you read the last parts of the thread you'll find that i've gone away from 9mm caliber and 9x25 dillon clones, and chose 312 caliber and 327mag as a standard to strive for, and this cartridge is noted for being pretty light, i'm almost sure it'll shoot as softly as 9x19 in semi auto, definitely nothing too snappy. I've also mentioned another cartridge as an alternative to 9x19 - 7.92x24, which does everything the former but better - capacity, recoil, velocity, energy, penetration, you name it. And it works in straight blowback pistols, requiring the slide 25% less heavy than a 9mm.


a138e2  No.644902

>>644899

To clarify the info on 327mag(the best load) - it recoils at 5.58ft-lbs from a 1.97lb revolver, while 9mm(standard 115gr load, nothing +p) recoils 5.2 from 1.5lb gun, that's without counting "felt recoil", just bare calculated numbers. Because our cartridge is bottlenecked it'd create greater blowback energy but i doubt that matters for the recoil, given a properly designed handgun. Low-recoil loads can have as low as 3ft-lbs recoil, which is lower than standard 9mm load from a 2lb gun(3.8ft-lbs).

Right, I mentioned as much in previous post, gas tube/piston will fuck with barrel harmonics.

>Roller delayed blowback is the most accurate automatic system there is

But isn't the lock-up less consistent? I don't doubt your claim, I'm just curious as to the mechanical aspects backing it up. I always thought a multi-lugged rotating bolt gave the most consistent lockup. What makes roller-delay more accurate than the other delayed-blowbacks, e.g. lever-delayed?

>>644902

That sounds pretty good. What would the approximate dimensions be of an auto cartridge with similar performance to .327? Looking at pics of .327 the case is both shorter and narrower than .37 mag, so I'd imagine a necked-down rimless equivalent would be pretty damn compact. Quick search gives a case capacity of 19gr of water, or 13.889 gr of water with a bullet seated in the case. 9mm has about 13gr H2O case capacity, so perhaps a slightly lengthened 9mm case necked down to .327? That's pretty damn compact, you'd get capacity for days.


a138e2  No.644912

>>644908

>But isn't the lock-up less consistent?

I dunno, probably not. I could see that as an issue with open bolt guns that were blowback, i could see that as an issue with less attention to accuracy in design, i could see some other delayed blowbacks moving a bit more but roller-delayed blowback is pretty solid, it almost "locks" the bolt from moving while the bolt slides these rollers out, while lever and especially straight blowback bolts move constantly, even if delayed. Of the semi auto rifles, i think SVD and PSG1 are the most accurate for each operating system and the latter is definitely a winner here.

>What would the approximate dimensions be of an auto cartridge with similar performance to .327?

Around this much >>640898

>the case is both shorter and narrower than .37 mag

Yes, its length is that of 38spl but it's thinner, which allows it additional capacity in revolvers, like 6 instead of 5 in small frames.

>a slightly lengthened 9mm

38 super doesn't have enough case capacity to offer desirable results. 10mm auto case was chosen for more capacity and flexibility. Check out the thread slightly before the linked post, there's some info of case capacity and similar stuff.

> the MP5 is objectively better

The Beretta M12 is easily in the top 3 of SMGs ever made when the MP5 isn't anywhere near.

An SMG shtick is controllable full auto fire, which the MP5 isn't anything great compared to many others including much older designs.

The MP5 had a much better success in western police forces (though a lot used the M12) because it's first round is as accurate as you're likely to get a 9mm round out of a 9in barrel which police forces liked as it allow to make precision shots (which is very useful in a police stand off) and have a somewhat decent full auto gun if you need the firepower.

Back when those were only issued to "anti-commando" (anti organized crime/terrorists) units the PM12 was the go to choice, because if you prepare for a firefight against guys with AK or WWII SMGs, that's the gun you want (then they all switched to 5.56 guns).

ROF of 550 vs 800, duh. If HK reduced that, and they absolutely can, it'd be a marvelous design. And Beretta can't fire 10mm, because the virgin straight blowback vs the Chad Kraut/Hungarian magic and an SMG in 9mm is pretty pathetic for anything other than saving moneys.

Alright, i've finally found some data on 9x25 dillon. It seems like the cartridge is getting more attention.

I was using info on 125gr underwood load, so it's actual an not theoretical one, that could show greater results. Also, 9x25 performs better with lighter bullets so expect greater results for 90gr loads.(they could get as much as 80ft-lbs from the same barrel)

At first, it confused me that most data on 9x25 dillon was for 6" barrel so i assumed it as being a step up in power over 10mm and such, which it's actually not. Now that i've got info for at least approximate graph i can tell that for sure. It's still something very unusual for autopistol cartridges.

For the data i have, 9x25 dillon is almost identical to 357 magnum for most barrel lengths(that's less difference than between 327mag and 30 carbine). It has very similar velocity gains for same barrel lengths, similar energy, with very slight advantage at shorter lengths and slower gains from longer ones, but all these differences are very small(10-20ft-lbs at 4", ~50ft-lbs at 9" and probably around 100 at 16, though i'm unsure about the last one). It beats 45 super at 11" when it clearly was a step up in power at 4", and its parent cartridge, 10mm, only beats it to 6" barrels, significantly falling behind afterwards. The downside is, like 357mag, that the round has less energy from 4" barrel, being only slightly more powerful than 357SIG. That's a pretty big issue because, even if we disregard the problems with blast and flash(i've heard that they can be mitigated by using a faster powder here, i'll look into that later), handguns, unlike revolvers, don't really go that well with longer barrels, significantly growing in size so the great boosts in performance are somewhat limited. Not much of an issue if used primarily in a long gun though.

The effective range of the gun would probably be around 200m for the rifle. I've got no calculators on hand and didn't really look into external ballistics but i know that even with 90gr from a 6" pistol it retains half of its energy(400ft-lbs) at 100m, so even a handgun can shoot and kill up to around 120m and with heavier bullets from a rifle, as well as better sights it might even be extended over to 200m, which is a very good mark, even somewhat competitive to intermediate cartridge rifles. Pointed bullets could probably help retain some energy over 357mag or at least compensate for that long barrel disadvantage.

I expect the recoil to be similar to 357 magnum minus the pistol dampening it, and certainly less than 10mm, though it might require heavier recoil spring.

Also, for reloaders out there, i suggest trying soft point bullets, they would probably be more efficient than fragmenting/exploding HPs at this point. Too bad the bullets for this are .355, not .357 diameter, this round could really use those.

Alright, so with the data on hands i can say that the decision to pick a smaller than 9mm caliber was a correct one - the bullets don't really have enough sectional density to make it to longer ranges. Don't get me wrong, 357mag or dillon are still very solid choices for a carbine but they still are somewhat suboptimal and can be improved with modern technology.

I've picked 1m(around 40") drop as the maximum allowed for maximum range, while energy is still undecided and less important i think, as getting hit by a 22 is still worse than missed by a 44 and suppressive fire can also be sent downrange with less calculation and precision. I think 300ft-lbs might be an ok mark. Sure, it won't kill immediately but a lung shot with expanding ammo would hinder one's ability to fight significantly, likely resulting in death anyways over time if he doesn't get help. Immediate stop is also less important because of the range between you, while if it's closer you've got a lot more of it. 30 carbine fits pretty well in this standard, with its average load(1990fps110gr/967ft-lbs, i'm using buffalo bore with additional 100fps in my graphs) has 600ft-lbs at 100m and, when zeroes at this distance, has 13.5" drop and 1236fps/370ft-lbs at 200 and 28" at 250. The energy might be somewhere around 150ft-lbs and it becomes subsonic somewhere around there so it's the maximum range, and 250m is really pretty good for a wide array of purposes, given that 223(1280ft-lbs, hot load) has 27" drop and 420ft-lbs energy at 400m and 52" drop and 311ft-lbs at 500, having 450m effective range as per my standard. 7.62x39(1500ft-lbs) has even less having 40" drop and the same 420ft-lbs energy at 400m, resulting in something like 350m range. Given those numbers, it does seem like an improvement to go with high-velocity ammo, though the heavier weight and larger caliber of the latter greatly impact terminal ballistics so the general conclusion may differ.

Back on topic of pistol cartridges, our 357 magnum, which i'll be using because there's more data on it, we have a 158gr load with 1830fps/1175ft-lbs(though energy can be better for 125gr loads) that reduces to 1138fps/454ft-lbs, along with 21" drop at 200m, going subsonic immediately after that and the drop being 39"at 250, which is almost below the maximum too, so we're basically losing almost 50m of range here. I'll look at that 140gr bullet though, it would probably fit better for the test.

So, this whole comparison was to show that despite 357 magnum being significantly(200ft-lbs) more powerful than 30 carbine, yet the former's effective range is same if not worse than the latter.


a138e2  No.646955

>>646953

Ok, so i got a decent ballistic calculator(thanks Hornady, you're great) and, using 140gr corbon data from BBTI with theoretical Hornady's 140gr Leverevolution bullets that they were kind enough to tell BC for i've got 1248ft-lbs/2004fps at the muzzle and 1133fps/400ft-lbs and 27" drop at 250m, so our favorite round has slightly more range than 30 carbine standard load, provided we're using something relative to spitzer bullets like leverevolution soft tip and using the hot load that Corbon uses, not Hornady in their ammo. So my conclusion was correct, as even if we'd not consider the speed of sound the drop at 300m would be more than 40".

I've also just calculated the same data for best 125gr loads and they seem to have similar maximum range, which is interesting, as they have basically the same(~2" less actually) drop and velocity, losing only 50ft-lbs(350 here) in energy, which is not really much, so the bullet selection might better be based on terminal ballistics, rather than external ones.


a138e2  No.646962

Alright, the last bit of info before i go to sleep. The information about loudness of the Dillon seems over exaggerated and probably comes from comparison to other pistol cartridges by people unfamiliar with revolvers, as well as the earlier loads being intentionally developed with slower powders to power compensators, now it's less of an issue. I've found a clear statement that the flash and noise for the cartridge are an almost exact copy of 357 magnum, which makes sense.

Still, there seems to be another general problem with high-power ammo that i didn't notice before - the noise. it may not seem like much, but cartridges like 357 magnum and Dillon, as well as 10mm and 357SIG are a step up in terms of flash and noise over weaker ammo like 9mm and, especially the first two, can very easily cause hearing damage when fired without protection(even when outdoors), which is what happens in a defensive situation. That's not to say that other rounds are hearing safe but these are more likely to cause that. I ignored noise as mostly irrelevant and it is for rifles, but for defensive pistols that's another story. Of course, saving one's life is always better than becoming deaf but it's something that should be avoided if possible. In this regard, our "universal" cartridges have a disadvantage, though people have been using 357mag for a while so it's certainly possible and works.

Looking up 9x25 dillon loads, i've stumbled upon the extreme defender solid copper bullets that Underwood uses. While generally regarded as gimmicks, i found mentions of their very light 9mm bullet that allowed 357sig to reach dillon velocities(2kfps) from a shorter barrel, which i found interesting, as its performance overlapped with the topic of my previous research on terminal ballistics, specifically the performance of lighter bullets with similar energy in tissue and optimization of bullet construction for them.

Monomaterial bullets like this one are interesting not only because, like its creators mentioned, it works more reliably compared to HPs sometimes clogging, but also offering the advantages of non-expanding projectiles like 100% weight retention, greater barrier penetration and lack of limitations of hollow point technology like ability to hold together at higher velocities, manufacturing costs, predictable expansion, etc.

While looking at extreme defender i found another variable that presumably impacts the effectiveness of the bullet the concentration of the bullet channel in a small area, as more small wound channels would close up faster. The bullets shows pretty impressive performance in ballistic gel, especially for a non-expanding projectile and, while isn't a complete joke like RIP, it does create these wound channels in gel due to cavities in it. These channels , while reaching wider than hollow point and creating a picture of greater damage, do that by making the wound channel less uniform, as you have a cross instead of impulse and expansion in all sides. That could explain the problems with tumbling rounds - they also create more narrow, vertical wound channels, rather than circular ones of expanding ammo. Still better than nothing we have today, especially for ammo that has to hold together like AP.

While looking at this ammo i've recalled another similr type of ammo that i didn't really look at - French THV and similar construction ammo. It's interesting in that it uses hollow base weirdly shaped bullets propelled at really high velocities(again, 2kfps but now for standard pressure 9mm), resulting in a round with a lighter recoil, armor-piercing capabilities and flat trajectory. it also produces a larger muzzle flash which makes me think that heavier bullets use poweder slightly more efficiently because of their slower speed that they spend more time in the barrel, making the powder burn longer as well. It's not a great difference but it becomes notable when you cut projectile weight more than in half(47gr?). Interestingly, ballistically it functions like an opposite of a hollow point - these inward curves result in a high drag coefficient of the bullet that, along with low SD and high velocity of the bullet makes it transfer its energy quite quickly, resulting in very little penetration, maybe even too little for good performance. The graph i've found also shows the bullet dumping its energy very rapidly, with little left to generate temp cavity later, albeit it compares it with 5.7 after they went through IIIa armor, but that's the best i've got. Still, i think it has potential as you could easily decrease the drag coefficient of the bullet, as opposed to increasing it, so could the bullet have more penetration and slower energy transfer for a less sharp temp cavity "wave"?

These bullets are actually used by several countries' police and such where HPs are not in use or prohibited, though there's little info on that.FED's work? And South Africa actually produces and develops these kinds of bullets, with even rifle ammo examples, though i don't think there's much use for those.

Does anyone have any info on those rounds? I've only got some velocity/energy and pictures, as well as descriptions of the performance that are pretty similar to varmint loads - i.e. pretty much explosive, high impulse and very rapid energy transfer. What could be downsides of such ammo, aside from terrible external ballistics, assuming we've got the software that automatically designs bullets with low enough drag coefficient to achieve desired penetration for a certain load? Could that be the same as with light high-vel hollow points, i.e. rapid expansion and greater temp cavity at the front compared to less steep and more prolonged cavity of a heavier one, as it spreads its energy into the cavity more evenly?

Lehigh defense makes a solid copper .32acp bullet thay they also load into .30 carbine. It's not a fully rounded/turned profile like the THV bullets, but the gel testing that has been posted on youtube seems to support your supposition that a less rounded profile provides more penetration and a deeper overall wound profile.

Seems that they now offer a .311 diameter extreme defense bullet now.

>not its own parent case

Correct. It's a 9x23 case loaded with a 9x19 bullet to keep 9x19's OAL. Whole point is the same as .460's case. The extra brass length isnt needed, it just prevents you chambering and firing a .460/.960 in the lower pressure chamber of a .45acp/9mm luger weapon.

The load development I have seen seems to be erring on the very conservative, with carefully taking into account the OAL of different "9x19" bullets to maximize powder volume while managing the case pressures.

Shell shock cases are currently only offered in 9x19, but they are being touted as capable of withstanding much higher chamber pressures. Thinner walls allow for higher case capacity as well, which I think makes a 9x23 case (or if they offered a 5.56x45 case next) would be an excellent 960rowland case.

Even higher chamber pressures could help to push a light solid copper bullet into .357sig velocity territory, while still being able to shoot normal 9x19.

And most importantly, allows that guy to earn some really great money for selling rare brass and his own loads for what essentially can be done with a common standard one. The same thing with 45 super and 460 rowland - same shit but 460 is only available from this happy merchant, both brass, loads and barrels, if we're talking ready solutions.

>Even higher chamber pressures could help to push a light solid copper bullet into .357sig velocity territory

Velocity alone doesn't really matter - its impact on energy is where it's at. 9mm +p+ goes up to around 500ft-lbs and that's the most it's capable of and is certainly above optimal pressures for the guns that were designed for it.

Ok, so non-expanding high-drag bullets seem to work pretty well. Compared to hollow points in terms of terminal ballistics, these seem to have more flexibility as they cannot break up or tear themselves apart in tissue, nor can they clog up. HPs have a theoretical advantage of being able to expand slower as they go through tissue, resulting in a more gradual energy distribution but generally they do not and expand pretty fast and it'd be very expensive and hard to design them otherwise. High-drag bullets also have another limitation - they depend on velocity more than HPs, with fast energy transfer bullets requiring to be light ones, while HPs are less weight dependent.

Overall i think they could have their place in pistol rounds and could even possibly improve their effectiveness or at least their versatility in terms of barrier and armor penetration. Other than that, i can't say much more due to lack of knowledge in physics in general and terminal ballistics in particular. If HPs main purpose is to increase their drag coefficient and dump energy in the target then high-drag bullets could do that out of the box, creating greater temp cavity in the process as they don't expand and spend less on permanent one. If HPs do something else, then i don't really know. For external ballistics that come in play at SMG levels already, these bullets aren't really great due to their high drag, so here expanding ammo will still be best, though we can expect technological improvements over current basic soft points in the future, be it more controllably expanding HPs, more weight retention or something else, as modern soft points do tend to lose some weight while expanding and are given less attention and are more crude and simple only because rifles have a lot more energy and so greater loss of it is less noticeable than in handguns.

And here's some battle footage.

I found one more type of high-drag ammo - the Devel bullet. It was developed by Charles Kelsey right before he was murdered and during his company's downfall and bankruptcy, which is kinda strange and sad story in itself. I haven't looked into much info on that but it seems he made plenty of interesting investments, even having some of them stolen/copied later. If someone knows more on his creations, feel free to post them for us to appreciate the works of this great man.

As for the bullet, it seems like a THV but has 5 rigidity ribs that make the bullet's profile closer to conventional one. That was done to improve feeding, which was one of the problems in designing THV as well as greater rigidity and barrier penetration. The bullet was also made from compressed copper and nickel(?) and not machined, like THV. It was also less extreme in its weight, being only slightly lighter than normal bullets(12gr .45 instead of 160-200gr, compared to what, 60gr THV?). Only muzzleloader bullet was sold and only .45 one was developed before his death. These bullets' profile would indeed improve feeding without changing the THV profile, aside from these ribs and it seems like the bullet would perform similarly to THV, except that it would be more conventional in terms of weight, wouldn't penetrate ballistic vests(due to larger surface area too) and would probably be less effective than THV in terms of drag due to ribs obstructing the wave path. On the downside, the bullet was prone to tumbling when it entered the tissue, which may be either result of lack of stabilization or just a construction flaw, as i think that tumbling is less desirable than straight movement with high-drag side forward, though it could be pretty good at the start and behave slightly better than FMJ after it has started tumbling. It looks similar to lehigh bullets but this one has straight ridges, while the latter was designed to concentrate the energy outwards in a more concentrated manner, which would create greater visible trail in gel but less severe and quicker closing wounds(its "cuts" were thinner and longer and so clog up faster, presumably), while Devel retains the overall profile of the THV and therefore the angle is more wide and is straight outwards, creating more uniform wounds. This one also has an advantage of being cheap, unlike the machined THVs or even more complex and advanced shaped lehigh.

I like the design, though i'd prefer some other ways to improve feeding, like monad plastic caps(though without the tip changes) or even gluing/inserting plastic ribs akin to Devel on top of the bullet to improve feeding, while allowing the optimal shape without wider tip that can get compressed or obstructions that would interfere with stability of the bullet. It's not optimal for mass production, though, and Devel is more fit for this purpose.

Here's some more pictures of the Devel bullets.

I've found reports of muzzleloader shooters that said that this bullet was very accurate but they were somewhat conflicting. Some said its performance was great, though not in much detail, while i've seen one mention of it being poor performer, though it was next to claim that it didn't expand(which it shouldn't, duh), so it might be misinformed. I've also heard that bullets' creator reported that their manufacturer fucked up the dimensions, which can very well be true, as its inward curve is very important in increasing drag, which is why some bullets could perform like lighter flat nose FMJs.

http://www.namlhunt.com/all-things-ml.html#

Another interesting observation - lehigh bullet seems to have similar penetration both in 9mm P and +P configuration, with the same bullet weight and construction, differing only in wound channel. An interesting property of the bullets, i wonder is it applies to other high-drag designs as well, as HPs can work very differently at different velocities.

Also, there is no such thing as a cartridge that can raise the internal pressure limit. These cases might have some real value, I'm not going to argue they are bad or just a fad or meme, they might be the real deal if they can prove themselves. But, only the CHAMBER and ACTION determine pressure limit, brass can handle any pressure. In fact, case choice has NOTHING to do with pressure limits. This is a misnomer, what they are actually pointing out in advertisements is that these cases should be tougher and handle more reloads at higher pressures, an advantage this type of case might have in certain applications, not so much in others (these cases might be able to be reloaded dozens of times at high 9mm +p+ ranges where brass might fail after a dozen, but in low pressure loads they offer nothing because brass can handle dozens of reloads at 20K or less PSI). In truth, steel, aluminum, thick and thin brass cases all come to the same Maximum Average Pressure, so do these cases.

Dunno about pistol rounds but this demonstration showed greater potential for overpenetration than shotgun. I think it depends on the ammo - if yours is made well than it'll hold together better so you can even beat FMJ/hardcast pistol rounds, probably.

>bullet that isn't as high drag as older, superior, simpler designs

It's not though, not only THV bullets are similar in construction to hollow-base wadcutters(except they have the weird point, the base is still trying to be flat) but because of their concave shaped point they concentrate pressure at one point(or circular are, to be more precise), resulting in higher drag. Wadcutters and SWCs also generally were just lead and so expanded more when entering tissue, unlike these bullets that do not.

Here's the test of such bullet, it lacks the drag of a HP or THV https://invidio.us/watch?v=vpM6LICK4hs , even though the penetration is pretty good. He might be also using a weak load in the weak caliber but it mostly doesn't expand and performs similarly to a hardcast flat point that we find in some loads today, though these are more focused on penetration. Lead also holds worse at higher speeds so hollow base wadcutters are kinda limited in that regard.

I've mostly been looking info on this topic in case of these rounds, reading their descriptions in the process and figuring things out. For others, i've also mostly looked into the info on them and got the general things in the process of figuring all the mess that was created. I've found BBTI to be extremely useful in case of comparison and evaluation of specific rounds. I have a table with the info structured in one place and try to fill it in when i'm looking at a new caliber. That is a lot more precise and useful than comparing just velocity or even energy from manufacturers' or load data, as both can be and often vary greatly depending on the barrel length.

External ballistics is pretty easy with modern calculators, the hardest part is to find BC of a bullet, after than you just fill few positions and voila - you have the data. It's just a bit time consuming at times, so i haven't looked much into that for rifle calibers(nor do i have the filled data on them like previously described).

Terminal ballistics is very tricky, there's much more variables, as well as controversy, often with field doctors instead of physical scientists being the most reputable source. A while agolike a year and a half i've started with reading page on wikipedia about ballistics after reading a discussion about the calibers. I didn't give it much thought but later i've found more interest in this topic and after reading several discussions and even downloadingthough i'm still too lazy to read them, prefer shorter articles, maybe one day a few books i've started getting attracted to the topic. After some more threads, even one that i created as a general ballistics thread, i've found Paul Harrell's channel and learned from that quite a lot(i sometimes watch some of his videos when i'm bored now, even though they wouldn't really tell me much new or useful info) and got a general glimpse of what was going on. I've also found this site a while ago and it has some pretty logical info that i had an easier time to grasp, even if it was biased and shilled one-sided position quite often. I still suggest to check it out, just filter nitpicking and shilling for shot placement by limiting recoilprotip, recoil has things to do with consecutive shots and sights acquisition, not "accuracy", which Paul also demonstrates well in one of his videos it's pretty good and i still agree with him on topic of general purpose rifle cartridges. Here http://abesguncave.com/stopping-power-the-simple-truth-of-terminal-ballistics/ , there are some alright, if a bit dated guides for AR building as well.

After than i for some time lurked and helped people in QTTDTOT and then created this thread. During its progression i've had to learn and explore some of more specific topics and gather all this data which kind of gave me an overview of the general picture of what's going on in addition to what i already had a glimpse of. During my research ITT i've visited some forums and watched some gel tests and such but they were more important for helping to get an intuitive grasp of what's going on, while the hard data was mostly from manufacturers, wikis and BBTI. Most of the research was posted here and can be tracked as i get rid of some misconceptions.

As for weird bullets like THV, these were mostly some mentions, 2 gel tests and many unbacked opinions, so in case of this weird ammo i've kinda managed to intuitively understand the mechanism after all that, mostly relying on assumtions about the intention of the type of bullet and then assuming that these certain traits would aid in that(i.e. teflon coated bullets that were designed for car doors and windshield penetration were made from hard alloy and has a shape somewhat between round nose and SWC and teflon was just a cheap coating that actually probably worsened the effect, though the latter assumption was about body armor so it could stabilize bullets against door metal, i dunno). I kinda got a grasp of these weird bullets because they were often pictures near each other by collectors and most of them are not that sophisticated in construction, be it a sabot/support for AP pistol round's core, thin part of bullet where it's designed to break apart or something similar. There's very little info on that so we have to rely on guesses here, even if somewhat informed.

For general purposes of basic internal and a bit more advanced terminal ballistics i'd go to Paul Harrell, he'll also in practical choices more, theoretical info is more of an addition. Then, if you need to compare and better understand cartridges, go to and learn to use and reference BBTI, then after you got the grasp of general purpose/behavior of cartridges/bullets/ etc, look for it more specifically. Youtube, surprisingly, has quite a lot of ballistic gel, water jugs, chronograph, caly blocks, penetration, etc. tests so be sure to check it out too. Or ask here, on /k/, i'm sure i'm not the only one who could suggest something or help and even if i am at a certain time, i'm still here. I'm also planning to install windows again soon, so i hopefully will get access to these fancy loading programs that could aid me in understanding how cartridge dimensions work, get into wildcatting(even if theoretical) and just learn to use these tools. maybe i'll also look into rifle cartridges' external ballistics, though this topic has a lot more resolved and discovered, so this will be waiting for a while.

I was thinking of somehow improving the THV bullet without significantly altering its profile or, preferably, using their old design instead of a new rounded one that had problems with compressing in tissue and failing and came up with an idea of using plastic caps similar to the ones SA ammo uses. They put a round plastic cap on top to improve feeding and decrease drag while in air but they had no means to secure the cap but let it detach when needed, so they had to alter the nose of the bullet, making it more fat and rounded again, introducing the same problem. I think i found a way to mitigate this issue. Basically, why not to cut a notch on the point of the bullet so that the cap can snap onto it? It'd require to make a hole in the cap so the point can go through but that's not an issue to make these, so the only thing to adjust would be to make the tip edges slightly rounded. I'm unsure how that'd impact the bullet's performance but i don't think it'd be by much, as we're not even sharpening the tip, only rounding its edges while leaving the top relatively flat. SA THV bullets intended to discard the cap during flight short after firing(though i may confuse it with other ammo), while my design does intend to keep the cap until the bullet reaches tissue, where it collapses and discards under the pressure and resistance of tissue, opening it to the original bullet shape. That'd require for the cap to be made pretty thin so it can compress easily and not cause problems with performance but that's easily achievable and even if it's still insufficient, you can just cut shallow grooves in the cap to aid in its collapse, as it would tear itself easier along them and separate. It could also have an effect on bullets' penetration, as they can travel slightly deeper if they have to strip the cap first, especially with the harder and thicker cap that would be less likely to deform. That can be a plus because one of the problems(and benefits) with original THV was the bullets' under penetration, as they transferred their energy too quickly and resulted in a paradoxical situation - they punched easily through body armor, yet rarely exited the body. That meant that they used all their energy in the first inches of the body, possibly resulting in less damage as they couldn't reach the vital areas. Even with 71gr ammo that ifo was posted the penetration was pretty limited, so much that i think that the bullets might require a redesign to decrease their drag and increase penetration(probably still with the hollow base, to make most out of their non-expanding property that allows them to work where HPs fail). In this situation, the cap might allow the bullet to keep its energy a bit further similar to how HPs need to expand, resulting in the same big wound channel caused by the high drag of the projectile, yet located closer to vital areas in the middle of the body instead of its edge.

Alright, my linux mint finally died so i installed windows, again, and finally got to quickload. Now i can finally research internal ballistics in more detail.

I've looked into it and while it's kinda complicated and has weird things it's not terrrible, albeit the bullet selection could be better and manufagturers could have added the length of their bullets when posting specs.

There were some cartridges unknown to me like .357 auto that i couldn't find any info about.

One of the first things i tested was the idea of using slower burning powders in rounds intended for use in longer barrels, which one anon tried to disprove. I picked basic standard pressure 9mm and 3 different powders: Aliant red dot, green dot and bullseye, with burn rate corresponding to their position. I then created a load for each of them with equal max pressure of 35kpsi, the max pressure of the round. I was using lighter 95gr bullets the program picked but they were the same for each load so it's okay, just don't mind higher muzzle energy values than usual. I also added pressure at the muzzle as it was another variable that i deemed important. Also added POWER PISTOL powder alter(it's teh only one that is compressed, to 100.7%) and its second loading that matches Green Dot powder. I got these results:

BL - Red Dot - Green Dot - Bullseye - Power Pistol - Power Pistol II

4" - 380ft-lbs(5415psi) - 397(5818) - 444() - 468(8826) - 396(7802)

6" - 447(3181) - 468(3407) - 537(4471) - 580(5603) - 496(5020)

9" - 506(1894) - 532(2023) - 620(2668) - 687(3537) - 591(3206)

16" - 581(921) - 610(980) - 724(1301) - 828(1825) - 720(1679)

If the data compiled by the QuickLOAD is correct, we've got same cartridges with the same pressure that have similar muzzle energy and differ only in muzzle blast, yet shoot them from a longer barrel and you can see a significant difference in velocity. While what that anon was talking about was true to some extent, the cartridge dimensions don't seem to be a defining feature in how fast the powder burns. I'll try this test with 5.56 next to see if this applies to more complex shapes like bottlenecks.

I've also got a question - are rifle powders more energetic? Because it seems that they have more gradual burn while requiring only so much more capacity to reach maximal chamber pressure. I mean, i was filling the case to 97 or so % with the Red Dot and to 100.7% with Power Pistol, with others in between these two.


a138e2  No.653646

I've gotta give quickload some credit though, they've really put effort in making it retard-proof in terms of safety and caution for reloaders.

Ok, here's the data for .223 Rem

BL - Red Dot - Blue Dot - Reloader - 7 - Reloader - 10x

6" - 393(15K) - 507(24K) - 511(29K) - 519(30,5K)

10" - 539(8,5K) - 735(13K) - 800(17,5K) - 823(18,5K)

16" - 663(4,9K) - 926(7,5K) - 1050() - 1095(10K)

20" - 719(3,7K) - 1010(5730) - 1170(7,7K) - 1217(8,3K)

Here the difference is more pronounced and using a slow-burning powder is kinda pointless as you get a weaker load that becomes less effective with additional barrel - the exact opposite effect. My premise about there being an "array" of powders for each cartridge that allows to optimize the load for you actually came out to be true. Even in this case, using powder like Blue Dot can be beneficial because not only it works but can make shooting something like SBR more bearable, as 65ft-lbs can be a good tradeoff for 5kpsi less, helping both with muzzle flash, your hearing and suppressor longlivety, regardless of actual practicality.

I've tried using reloader 7 powder in 9mm but it seems like very compressed powder just spikes in pressure and then doesn't completely burn even through 20" barrel. It's kinda weird and even uncompressed loads behave badly. Could it be that the powder either burns slowly and underperforms while unable to gain enough volume before it spikes in pressure when compressed? Could it be that it gets too much space to push the bullet for the powder charge because of the wide bore?

Saying that, i've only started seeing the loss of efficiency when using Blue Dot and it still behaved close to Power Pistol and better than Bullseye, so the array of possibilities is pretty wide, to the point when it's possible to use the same powder effectively in both 5.56 and 9mm.

I'm not good at physics but I guess larger amounts of powder take more time to burn in contained conditions?


a138e2  No.653649

>>653646

Oh, as a side note, the blue dot was the first powder to show not 100%(to around ~87 iirc, didn't write in) in amount of propellant burnt, so i'm almost completely sure that this parameter has things to do with efficiency and its loss with slower powders.


a138e2  No.653658

>>653646

And that POWER PISTOL powder works alright in 223, just a bit worse than Blue Dot, with similar reduction in pressure.(882ft-lbs and 7Kpsi vs 926ft-lbs and 7.5Kpsi). It's pretty well optimized for magnum powders though, lending best results in 9x19 and will probably do so in most other pistol calibers.

Okay, now things don't really make sense. I've looked further into 9mm loads and developed one that shows 436ft-lbs with a 115gr FMJ using that Aliant Power Pistol powder(7.7gr, 100,6% capacity) from a 4" barrel, which is more than 100ft-lbs more than the loads i've got my data on. Granted, it'll be louder, could probably keep pressure high for too long fucking up the casing and not cycle but it is standard 35k pressure, which is really weird. It also gains 200ft-lbs where it should have been 80(4" vs 9").

Other weird thing is how it computes .357 magnum - it's really lacking, where instead of the best result in my data(621/817ft-lbs from 4" and 6" barrels respectively) i struggle to get to 550, with the power pistol i get mere 701ft-lbs out of 6", and this is right at the maximum pressure point. Blue Dot gives 695ft-lbs, Herco gives 637, Green Dot gives petty 524. That's just unbelievable, how can these powders perform so badly? Either most .357 manufacturers use cutting edge powder technology that pushes the cartridge significantly beyond what common loads can do, all the real world data i have is unrealistic or there's something not right with this software, as its results are speaking against real world data, and by a very large margin in both ways.

Can someone experienced with the software suggest me what the fuck?


f22a3e  No.653859

Friend, are you just using a computer program, or are you testing ANY of the loads with a gun and a chronograph? Keep in mind that such programs are theoretical and often times incorrect, the times when they are correct is when people punch in real numbers for reference, the further you get from established data the further you get from the truth. Gunpowder has more attributes than mere burn rates, there are many dynamics outside of this. Some gunpowders have unique real life oddities, different loading densities, the way you pack a cartridge makes a huge difference in the way the gunpowder burns, that gunpowder burn creating heat and pressure will change the way the rest of the gunpowder burns, ect. Trying to calculate the theoretical power and pressure of a given load for a cartridge and a barrel without real data means you are fumbling in the dark, blind, no real clue if the numbers you generate are viable. Theories based on powder only have a burn rate as a variable are all but worthless. Real reloading manual creators like Lyman or others use specialized test cannon like guns that measure pressure and they shoot over a chronograph into paper to see what's what, they don't punch numbers into a compooter.

When I said that cartridge is more important than barrel length, this is based on REAL LIFE data collected in real guns. Many people have tried to maximize power of handgun cartridges by using different powders than what the big books recommend, only to fail. When it comes to barrel length, many shooters have tried what you suggest and use slower gun powders for rifle barrel loads to increase performance, only to realize that the same powders that maximized power in the handgun maximized the rifle barrel power as well. Work in this vein is old, 44 and 357 Magnum data on this subject is many decades old. Maximizing the cartridge is the ONLY way to maximize performance, the barrel only affects the burn after the cartridge dynamics take place. Your computer programs may or may not show you this fact.

>are you just using a computer program, or are you testing ANY of the loads with a gun and a chronograph?

I don't, obviously, as you can see by looking at my flag. I'm just using the tools i've got at hand.

>such programs are theoretical and often times incorrect

Indeed, i figured this much. I've seen this program recommended several times here, it does have lots of variables, huge database and many results do correspond with real life data. It's the best program i know of.

>Theories based on powder only have a burn rate as a variable are all but worthless.

Maybe, but i don't think the program only looks at burn rate.

>When I said that cartridge is more important than barrel length

But we weren't arguing on whether the barrel length determines the burn rate, it's whether powder selection can be optimized for a particular burn rate in a same cartridge that was the question.

>REAL LIFE data

Yes, yes, nothing is more objective than objective events that are only observed and documented, yet we have to work with what we're got. Unfortunately now i have no means, legal, monetary or physical, to make such experiments, so theoretical research using the tools i can find are the only things i've got at hand. At least i've already found out an issue with this software - its results do not always correctly correspond with real life data, at least the one that i've saved from others' research.

>many shooters have tried what you suggest and use slower gun powders for rifle barrel loads to increase performance

I've also noted that using rifle powders does result in failure, but using slower burning magnum powders instead of regular pistol ones can very well boost the performance from longer barrel, along with shorter one, due to more prolonged application of pressure. I've found at least one mention of using such powder in a very fast-burning cartridge(9mm) that resulted in greater muzzle blast and noise without reduction in energy of the bullet, which might mean increased pressure at the muzzle, which would, in turn, improve the performance from the longer barrel. Not by much, yet it's something.

>the same powders that maximized power in the handgun maximized the rifle barrel power as well

Yes, it actually corresponds to the results i got. It's just the slower, more powerful powders that give maximum performance did greatly increase the pressure at the muzzle and could probably interfere with cycling and cause other such problems due to more prolonged pressure curve.

>Maximizing the cartridge is the ONLY way to maximize performance

And i'm trying to change the cartridge - the powder part of it, the longer barrel is only the medium where the cartridge is expected to perform.

They make a 9" barrel for Glock 40.

One of my backburner projects is to make detachable should stock for various semi-long barrel handguns that would double as a water/dust proof container/holster.

The idea being like you said a "woodsgun" that you don't need to worry about in rough but with 9" barrel and shoulder stock it should be pretty good. The container would also of course hold extra ammo, etc, maybe even scope.

Guns on my list for this would be Glock 40 in 9", Deagle 44mag in 10", and Ruger Blackhawk in 357/9mm and 22lr/22mag in 6.5" and 9.5".

Paper mockup says a holster for 6.5" Blackhawk about right size for shoulder stock.

Yeah, I know I can't do it in CA (though maybe for Hollywood use), and need an extra $200SBR tax elsewhere.

seems like old Russian 7.62x25 is about perfect for submachine gun, and able to be normal pistol mag so could be used in that config of SMG such as Uzi.

Why did it fade away?

Good luck. i suggest looking up ways that existing stocks are attached if you haven't already done that.

>>654024

>7.62x25 is about perfect for submachine gun

Well, that's not really true. While it is a very good cartridge and can be better than more powerful and significantly more recoiling cartridges like .45ACP+p and .40S&W from longer barrels, its range is still pretty limited, especially with the mild loads that are currently most common. It's maximum range, as defined by my made up standard previously in this thread, is around 100m from a pistol for a normal load(by which i mean 1600fps) and ~130m for 10" barrel SMG. For hotter loads loaded up to 9mm+p levels(38K vs 36K vs 35K(for std 9mm))(would probably result in something like 1700fps velocity, and the case is already very strong by design, while the SMG can surely handle it) it turns into 110m for pistol and 150m for a rifle. That's more that 10mm, 45 super and probably even 44 magnum can do, in terms of range, with very flat trajectory too. Still, there are rounds like .30 carbine, 9x25 Dillon, .327 and .357 magnums that can add additional 100m of range to that(and i think it's possible to add 50 more with further optimization). So, is it good, flat and mild shooting cartridge? Yes. Is it perfect, especially for a full sized SMG? No, not really, though it's still better than most other pistol cartridges.

>Why did it fade away?

Lack of hollow point technology that lead to poor terminal performance and overpenetration, as well as gun control to make the piles of ammo that were everywhere after the war less useful by removing the guns that use them from service and production.

I recalculated the data on .327 magnum and .30 carbine and found because i found out that some shit is just not right, specifically the ballistic coefficient of .308 bullets compared to .312 ones. 100gr .312 has SD .147 and BC of .170, while a 110gr .308 has SD of .166 and BC of .15, with both bullets having same manufacturer - Hornady, which is some serious bullshit, especially since the .312 i hollow point while .308 is round nose. If using the data from Buffalo bore for their hot 30 carbine load with .154 BC it has around 250m range, while the hot AE 100gr .327 has range of ~280m out of the same 18" barrel. If we change the .308 BC to .2(like it probably should, or .185 in the very least) it immediately hits the 300m mark, and it can be reloaded with spitzer bullets that can be around .270 BC.


a138e2  No.654814

Okay, i obviously don't have enough data but it seems that relation of caliber/bullet weight(maybe?) to the remaining case capacity is what determines the performance of a cartridge from a certain barrel length, rather than the actual shape of it. Does case capacity in relation to bore size determine powder selection? Cause it seems this is the cause of the problem with using inappropriate powders, as using a slow powder in a very pistol cartridge causes the powder to either burn incorrectly because of the rapidly increasing space behind the bullet that leads to pressure drops or something, while compressing it might lead to something similar to what happens when you use compressed propellants in tight containers to make them "explode" or something. With faster burning powders, i assume, it'll either cause a huge pressure spike, if using a rifle powder load, or, if we try to keep pressures low, would lead to very significant drop of performance, for example a 5.56 would probably be reduced to slightly more than a 22lr, albeit being a lot closer to it in noise and such from shorter barrel.

I've read in one old thread here strelok saying that to reduce the pressures of a cartridge you should increase its capacity. Now that i think about it, how is that achieved? Isn't pressure the thing that drives the bullet forward? Could it be that what actually happens is that greater capacity allows the use of slower powder and/or extends the time when great pressure acts upon the bullet(resulting in more force used upon the bullet over time), so even a greater charge of the same powder can be used without going over the maximum pressure.

There's one example that is also worth mentioning - two cartridges, same but different: 5.56x45mm and 5.56x30mm MARS, which perform identically from a 10" barrel, yet the latter is significantly shorter and has less capacity. I don't know about the powder selection or max pressure of the latter but i doubt it's much higher than 556. It's kinda weird but it seems true. There are also examples of NATO stupidly altering cartridge dimensions before adopting them without significant change performance. Then there's also Ackley improved cartridges that also boost case capacity by straightening walls and pushing shoulders forward.

In QuickLOAD i've found a variable called "cartridge weighting factor" for each cartridge but i don't really know what to do with that yet.

On a side note, i've come up with a way to classify cartridges more accurately than they are now, i think. The key here is to not just sort them by power but also by their burn rate, i.e.

Rifle - intermediate - pistol cartridges

High - medium - low power

High power rifle - .300 WinMag, .338, .50BMG

Medium power rifle - 6.5 grendel, most 6-6.5mm cartridges

Low power rifle - .223

High power intermediate - .458 Socom, .50 Beowulf

Medium power intermediate - 30-30/7.62x39

Low power intermediate - 5.56x30 MARS/.357 magnum/9x25 Dillon

High power pistol - (generally = low power intermediate) 10mm Auto/.45 super

/.224BOZ

Medium power pistol - 9x18 Makarov to .357SIG

Low power pistol - .22lr to 9x18 Makarov, probably won't exist

because it's impractical, maybe only pocket pistol ones like .32NAA/.380acp

That way, it can be clearly seen that 5.56, as a low power rifle cartridge has longer range than 7.62x39 and is designed for longer barrels, while cartridges like .357mag and 9x25 Dillon perform more like intermediate rather than pistol cartridges, with large gains from additional barrel and big loud blasts from short ones. I've not yet decided on pistol rounds, as many high power pistol rounds can as well be LPI, like it case of 45 super and probably 224BOZ. 10mm is an exception as it's one of the few HPP cartridges with a very "pistol" burn rate. I'm also unsure about what low power pistol rounds should be, as i wrote above near them. I'm open to suggestions in case you think i got something wrong here.

>Now that i think about it, how is that achieved? Isn't pressure the thing that drives the bullet forward?

Isn't it simply a matter of Boyle's law?

Well, yeah, probably, but shouldn't the decreased pressure in turn decrease acceleration of the bullet?

>>654820

Though, now that i think about it, lower pressure cartridges do tend to have lower powder effectiveness and need slightly more powder to achieve same performance. i remember reading about that somewhere around that same time, during discussion of super short magnums, i think.

Ok, i've recalled some of the physics knowledge i've long forgotten so i'll rethink my question - does powder burn faster in a more contained environment compared to more open one, or is there more to it?


918f8e  No.654836

>>654824

I think it does because the reduced volume is increasing the collision rate of the molecules but I'm very unsure.

>>654820

Maybe acceleration but the end velocity should be the same provided the barrel length is appropriate. The energy needs to go somewhere after all.

>The energy needs to go somewhere after all.

Yeah, that's assuming 100% burn. There's still muzzle blast and muzzle pressure though.

I've looked into that "cartridge weighting factor" and it's basically how "overbore" a cartridge is, which is the relation of bore diameter to its capacity. I think that this variable is actually the one that determines the burn rate, mostly through the powder selection. It's also more often than not noted that the greater is the overbore variable the faster the cartridge will burn through the barrels, though barrel life is another weird topic so i'm unsure how could that be explained.

>Well, that's not really true.

yeah, but for SMG/PDW ain't it all about balance between power and recoil, with x25 sitting between 9mm(too little) and 30 carbine(too much)?

The x25 is just BARELY short enough to fit into a pistol grip mag, and using a grip mag means the whole gun can be shorter. Plus the x25 will be about the softest shooting round that is threat to Level IIIA soft body armor at close range.

357 is gonna be problematic in SMG since its designed for revolver. 9x25 Dillion sounds neat and on my list in Glock 40 with 9"barrel, but they say Dillion is fading, whereas x25 Russian has massive history behind it.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

too unoptimized

>30 carbine(too much)

Nah, just right.

>The x25 is just BARELY short enough to fit into a pistol grip ma

Yet too long for a proper comfortable double stack.

>Plus the x25 will be about the softest shooting round that is threat to Level IIIA soft body armor at close range.

incorrect, microdick calibers like 5.7 and HK whatever copy are.

>357 is gonna be problematic in SMG

Unchanged? yes.

>they say Dillion is fading

Says who? Dillon as a cartridge or as a company?

>whereas x25 Russian has massive history behind it

History ain't gonna load you ammo, and there are more manufacturers that load 9x25D(underwood, double tap in several loadings including defesive ones, while with x25 you're stuck with either dried up surplus, wolf, S&B or one American brand that all load the same 85gr FMJ with varying degree of wimpiness) than there are producing x25. Number of guns shooting it too.

>If it ain't broke don't fix it.

It's not broke, it just has half the range.
