Faxon Q&A #3: Twist rates, stress, break-in, gas ports & more!
InRangeTV


Published on Apr 20, 2017
You asked for it, so here it is. Part 3 of our barrel discussions with Faxon. In this one we jump into twist rates, stress relief, lead lapping, break-in, gas ports and more.

00:41:11 Deep dive on twist rates. How are they determined? How are twist rates made? What is ideal for my caliber / bullet? What is twist rate? 55 grain bullets in a 1/7? How is twist rate cut into a barrel?

20:46:00 Stress relieving
What is “Stress”
What to look for in properly stress relieved barrels.
Methods of Stress Relief (Thermal vs. Cryo)
Discussion on Cryo treatment in general
How do you know stress relieving worked?

28:35:00 How good were the best barrels from “old times” when compared to the modern era?

31:16:00 What is lead lapping?

32:52:00 Discussion about barrel “break-in”
What is it & what does it do when they break-in a barrel?
What about treated barrels like Nitride and Chrome?
Barrel break-in for average shooters compared to niche need shooters like bench rest competitors?

43:45:00 Gas port sizes and barrel location? Rifle length, mid length, carbine length? Gas port cutting location, between or on lands and grooves?

Russian .50 Cal Sabot Slug - Like a Tiny Tank Round
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Apr 19, 2017
This is a very complex 12ga. shotgun slug design. They MIGHT be called Polev-7, though that isn't certain. With a three-piece sabot, and a very small and relatively light projectile, these are fast-moving rounds. We show a few problems, which I believe is due to the snug fit between the gas piston and the projectile, that caused ballistic issues. Luckily this didn't occur on all the shots.

Massive 572 gr. Shotgun Slug vs RUNNING Weed Wacker
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Apr 21, 2017
Gregg was tired of trying to keep his old weed wacker running. It was worn out and it was going to cost more to fix it again than to buy a new one. He barely managed to get it running- the pull cord actually broke while he started it. We shot it with a really heavy and hotly-loaded slug called a Grizzly that is from Russia. We were testing a powder load to make sure we have that correct for the main video.

We decided to share this with you!

IT'S LEGAL! Draco Pistol With Arm Brace
MattV2099: Guns & Food


Published on Apr 30, 2017
This is the Draco AK pistol. Via YouTube Channel Twangnbang: "The ATF released a letter sent to SB Tactical, inventors of the Stabilizing Brace, appearing to reverse their previous opinion that shouldering a Stabilizing Brace "redesigns" it as a stock. In this video, Mattv2099 skillfully operates the AK-47 hand gun with SB47 arm brace. Watch this masterful tutorial and embrace the tactics you find within it. In Memory Of Mikhail Kalashnikov Filmed with the Sony HD AVCHD Camcorder; HDR-CX190. Edited in Final Cut Pro X. "It's Legal! Draco Pistol With Arm Brace"

In honor of Mikhail Kalashnikov we pour vodka on our Draco AK Pistol and burn through a bunch of ammo. An appropriate memorial service for a great man, inventor and operating engineer.

From Wikipedia
Kalashnikov was, according to himself, a self-taught tinkerer who combined innate mechanical skills with the study of weaponry to design arms that achieved battlefield ubiquity. Even though Kalashnikov felt sorrow at the weapons' uncontrolled distribution, he took pride in his inventions and in their reputation for reliability, emphasizing that his rifle is "a weapon of defense" and "not a weapon for offense".

The AK-47 is a legendary Machine. Capable of operating in environments that would destroy other firearms. Mattv2099 has subjected his AK to a variety of harsh experiments in the last two years. From food torture tests and product reviews to weird scientific experiments and life hacks. I cover everything AK related included how to clean your AK quickly (in the car wash), how many twinkies you can stuff inside an AK and even shooting AK's without necessary components. I also publish AK47 videos on my second channel named "MatthewjamesBeast." Thank you for watching!

Автомат Калашникова Заполненный пончик . Будет ли это работать ? это в конечном итоге надежность работы. и один в длинном ряду таких испытаний, проведенных на этом канале. Спасибо за просмотр.

44 Magnum vs 500 S&W Magnum (Ballistics Gel)
Kentucky Ballistics


Published on Apr 17, 2017
Today on Kentucky Ballistics we shoot some ballistics gel with our Smith and Wesson 500 Magnum Revolver and our Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum Revolver! I thought it would be interesting to compare the 44 Magnum to the 500 Magnum. The 44 Magnum was the world’s most powerful handgun at one time. I thought it would be fun to see the differences between the old champ and the 500 Magnum which is now the title holder of most powerful handgun. In this video we have 48 inches of 10% ballistics gel for our test and some high quality Underwood Ammunition. Check out the video and watch these two powerful handguns rip through some ballistics gel!

The guns used in this video are a Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum Performance Center Revolver with a 10 ½ inch barrel and a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum Revolver with a 9 ½ inch barrel. The ammo used in this video is Underwood 500 S&W Magnum 350 Grain XTP Jacketed Hollow Points and Underwood 44 Magnum 300 Grain XTP Jacketed Hollow Points.

Subsonic 7.62x39 rounds that cycle in a silenced AK!
Military Arms Channel


Published on May 1, 2017
If you really want to maximize the effectiveness of your silenced firearm, you need to use subsonic ammo. The downside is that many times the rounds don't have enough gas pressure to properly operate the firearm. Engel Ballistic Research makes subsonic 7.62x39 ammo that when paired with a silencer like the DeadAir Wolverine actually cycle the rifles action. We take a look at two different flavors of the Engel Ballistic Research subsonic 7.62x39 ammo and fire them over the sound meter.

2G-ACM X95 Tavor & WWSD 2017 Beta DMR - Stage 1
InRangeTV


Published on May 2, 2017
We had a chance to put a X95 Tavor through a 2G-ACM match. It was an opportunity to get some practical shooting time under the clock with this bullpup, so let's find out how it does on the clock!

Ian shot a not yet completed beta version of his WWSD AR15 DMR build to start testing things out. Ian's rifle has a Primary Arms 2.5x ACSS optic:
http://www.primaryarms.com/primary-ar...

Karl & the X95 used a Vortex Strikefire red dot:
http://www.vortexoptics.com/category/...

Stage 1 started on the mid range bay - multiple target engagements beginning at 175 yards and moving up to 150 yards through conduits, thus constricting our engagement and visibility.

The X95 isn't supremely accurate nor does it have a great trigger, being a bullpup, but how will it fare in this environment?

Stage 2 is a straight up CQB stage with close range paper and a transition to pistol. Does the shorter OAL of the X95 Tavor really help in this role?

RN-50 in 50 SPOTTER/TRACER!
markserbu


Published on May 4, 2017
The classic M40 106mm recoilless rifle used the M8C spotter/tracer rifle to let the crew know the gun was on target. Once they saw the flash from the spotter/tracer hitting the tank, they touched off the big 106mm round. These little spotter/tracer rounds have less recoil than the standard .50 BMG and yet they still have great downrange effects. Great fun!

Can I build an all metal AR15 less than 5.5 pounds? {Project Light weight AR15}
mixflip


Published on May 7, 2017
This is just a parts list video. Range video coming soon...

Links to how I build AR15 rifles...
upper https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBTc9...
lower https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIM9_...

A lot of my favorite youtubers have done a light weight AR15 build...so it is about time I took on the challenge myself.

I also think every wife should have an AR15 for self defense of the family so I though since my wife does not have a lot of upper body strength, she would greatly benefit from a light weight AR15 rifle.

My goal was to build an AR15 out of all metal parts (not including the grip & buttstock) so no carbon fiber barrel and no polymer receivers.

I also wanted to try and use parts commonly found in most gun stores. I bought the Mag Tactical Systems magnesium lower receiver at a gun store here in Las Vegas and many of the other parts as well.

Range Drill: 'Ring Around the Rosy'
John Lovell


Published on May 7, 2017
Here's a fun drill called 'Ring Around the Rosy' which measures trigger reset, recoil management, trigger control, and follow through for pistol shooting. The drill is timed from 9ft away and requires 9 rounds through 9 separate circles. Misses add 2 seconds to raw time.

Get the target and shoot this yourself for free from Telluric Group's website: https://telluricgroup.com/blogs/drill...
