    Today I had a very good day with the DDEPP bullets, found a better load and the 5 shots of 6 went in a 7 x 5.5cm group at 200m. Not bad, better than before.

    @Chill Wills, regarding the transonic region, we know that the critical speed for bullets and aircrafts is CLOSE to the speed of sound. So following your measurements we see that the most critical value is at 1300 fps, at 200 yds the speed is still...

    In the attached photo you can see a modern rifle bullet slowing down to transonic speeds, you can see how the shock waves behave, moving the centre of pressure to the rear of the bullet. This has a really negative effect in accuracy because the...

    Almost all the civilian aircrafts operate in the subsonic region, some others can operate in the supersonic region. A supersonic aircraft cannot avoid the transonic region when accelerates to supersonic speeds, but the subsonic jet aircrafts stay...

    Thank you for your reply, I stopped to use the citric acid because I didn't see any difference in the cases before and after the treatment with hot water and 10/15% of citric acid. So I decided to use a hot vinegar 6% solution, and this is giving me...

    Richard I'm not set at all because I have a lot of new things to learn, wind included. In the attached photo you can see another target at 200m similar to the previous one with a lot of flyers and a very good central grouping. I used the GG Lyman...

    I'm an "instinctive" shooter, I don't use any scope, just the sights you can see in the photo of my rifles. And I'm shooting at 200m only because your loads maybe perfect at 100m, but at 200m and above things change sometimes. In your other post...

    Hi Richard thank you for your advices, these are my 45/70 Pedersoli Sharps, they are identical except the stock. Everything should be tight there, but sometimes I have problems with the Pedersoli sights because they are not so well made. I'm...

    Today I tried to shoot at the distance of 200 meters the PP bullets sent me by Rob (rfd), they were conceived for his rifle, but they fitted well in my second newer Pedersoli Sharps. .444" slick, Seth Cole "canary" paper, 529gn and 16:1 alloy, 81gn...

    Thanks again Arnoldo. Just another question about wads: I'm using the tetrapak wads (diameter 12mm), and I found that 2 wads of 0.4mm each are better than one. The next time I'll use 3 tetrapak wads, total thickness 1.2mm. Another alternative are...

    This is my first decent 9 shots grouping @200 meters with my Pedersoli Sharps "Q" 45/70, double diameter bullets (Arnie Seitz project), Lyman #2 alloy, 80gn swiss nr 4. wind 7/10 kts. It seems that these DDEPP bullets are starting to work good.
