My patents are all in applied thermodynamics, and I got so numbed with the lengthy units after awhile that I got Mathcad just to let it handle all the conversions automatically. Trying to get an absolute pressure from measuring brass is like trying to get copper crusher readings with uncalibrated copper slugs; it starts with a method that is already known to be inconsistent from one test setup and technician to the next, then makes it worse with uncalibrated gauge materials and chambers that aren’t pressure barrel specification compliant.

I still use a copyright loading manual for some of the same reasons. The time now is The only constraint is that the weight units used in the VMD factory have to be the same as you are weighing the charge in.

If I hadn’t read it, I would have a lot more money in my jeans. I have tried many of Ken’s loads over the years.

warers I have one of the first signed copies that came out. Typically, peak pressure goes up very roughly as the cube of the change in velocity. Trying to read and absorb all the knowledge here and in these books.
