HAHA!

Excellent!

The friction drag of the rifled barrel and the soft nature of the lead projectile does get in the way of penetration.

Can't wait to see what those saboted rounds do :D

I still can't get over how seemingly quiet it is. Quite a few shots from my lesser hybrids have literally left my ears ringing.

By the way, have you tried any "shotgun" type rounds? Great fun from a powerful hybrid :)

Here's a way you can make your own sabots: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtop ... tml#267219

The concept is basically this: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/sabots- ... 23677.html

Nice videos, Petitlu. The lack of noise is strange but it did sound a lot better in that video you did in your garden. Have many people on the French forum made hybrids? I tried looking through the site with Google Translate but it's quite difficult :wink:

I made a shot this after noon, with a shoe Mix30 Jack (thank you to him!)
the target is a profile "I" steel.
The nail was a ripple, I heard a noise "psiiii" typical.
my electrodes have been twisted during firing, I have not been able to do another shot ...

mix30 :o Nice!
Now I really need to find a good ignition so I can go higher mix as well!
These nails looks so small :lol: I´d prefer a .50 lead ball.
