Re: Slugging Procedure

Interesting procedure - not sure I agree yet, but will mull on it.

Personally, I feel that people who obsess (not you Tom) about odd-numbered grooves unnecessarily complicate the .45-70 situation, where the lands and grooves are equal in width.

I'm sure we've all played with a compass, marking out the radius around the circumference to create six-sided doodles. Do it with two concentric circles (R1 = 2", R2 = 2.25"). Darken alternate arcs on both circles. Connect and darken the short radial lines between the arcs. Congratulations, you've just made a schematic drawing of an SA bore! NOW, note that "high points" ARE diametrically opposed, and should be directly readable by an ordinary mike!

This is a "special" case, and ABSOLUTELY NOT applicable to, say, 5-groove Enfield rifling, where an anvil mike definitely IS needed.

After mulling, I think you're getting the same result by a different method. B + 2P - 2P = B. :-)

I would REALLY appreciate input from the shooters (and engineers) here.
