    Meaningless post with no facts.

    Why in the great wide world of guns and grumbles are you apologizing.

    Harry the Science Nerd here.

    I am just a Science Nerd. Knowledge is power. How can I argue with success? Laws of Physics do work. Two things can not occupy the same space at the same time. If there is an attempt, it is called an accident. On another post I tried to explain where the lead goes when the shooter uses an oversize bullet to groove size. The lead has got to go somewhere. Shooters who advocate the Foreign compression bullet like in an Lorenz warn would-be users not to use too much lube. Too much lube keeps the compression bullet from compressing and engaging the rifling in a consist manner.


    Currently, I am working on a geometry problem to help determine long and short rounds in Mortar. The Military have computers that calculate distance and angles for Artillery. I am going old school with my Iphone with sin and cosine, adjacent and opposite and hypotenuse. This kind of thinking is supposed to keep the brain sharp. Maybe?????

    My goal from College was to put the STUD in STUDy.

    True Blue and Diamond Hard,
    Harry

    Interesting comments

    My comments were meant for those that are struggling. I wish when I was new to the game that someone would have told me the number of things that can effect your shooting.

    Yeah Bruce your post opened a whole plethora of discussion topics. Seemed to be some confusion as to which specific topic to address. I know sin wasn't one of them.

    Darn auto correct. It is sine not sin. It is a geometry thing. Thanks for commenting.

    Putting the STUD in STUDy, not sin,
