Re: TKO HEAVY for CALIBER

Thanks Malamute! I agree with you about the narrow usefulness of TKO. It is definitive within certain contexts, two bullets of the same design and same alloy, comparing "expected" forensic performance at various ranges, etc. It seems useful to me comparing a 405gr hard cast 44 load to a 180gr hard c...

Re: TKO HEAVY for CALIBER

Here is another example, this time I compared my round ball 12ga slug load, adjusting the velocity to produce the same muzzle energy of 2000fp, and getting a TKO of 60. The most obvious caveat to me is comparing unlike loads, like the round ball, which is not hard cast, to the hard cast BTB loads. B...

Re: TKO HEAVY for CALIBER

Thanks for pointing this out Harry. My Bad, I didn't do the TKO calculations, I only posted the energy calculations, which aren't affected by the ballistic coefficient, as you can in this actual TKO calculation of my 45/70 load.

TKO HEAVY for CALIBER

found these images lurking in a file folder. this may be of interest to someone, IDK. three of them compare my 44 revolver load, 950 is my actual velocity, 1000 is my goal, and 1100 has been achieved by a couple of people. In all cases I'm aware of this is in Redhawks. This load is too long for most...

Re: 45-70 lever ammo feeding advice needed

I had a problem with the 460 grain cast performance in a couple of rifles. I credit the curved ogive with changing the approach angle just enough to impede feeding. In comparison, the truncated cone design of my standard ammo feeds easily and smoothly. Bullet designs have different effects in variou...
