GGDT calculation check please

Unread postAuthor: evilvet » Tue Jan 29, 2013 2:20 pm

Hi all

Could someone please check me on GGDT with the following configuration:

This valve with a 1/4" slide valve as pilot
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XQ170600-2-Position-3-Ways-Air-Pneumatic-Quick-Exhaust-Valve-/380530040707?ssPageName=ADME:L:OU:AU:3160
Which I am plugging in as 6.25mm seat/piston and 1cm3 as the pilot volume for the slide valve.

Dead volume is guessed at 2cm3 since the barrel/breech is pretty much hard up against the valve output
300mm of chamber length @ 20mm I/D
1000mm barrel @ 10mm I/D
10mm plastic BB weighing 1 gram
100psi @ 20 degrees C

I get 135m/s or about 440fps, which I am very happy with.

Do those numbers sound right ?

Thanks

Sounds about right, this is some real world data with my eBay QEV:

I hooked up a 12 inch 6mm barrel and did some chrony testing at 120 psi. The firing chamber volume is around 3.5 cubic inches, a little wasteful but that's what I had ;)

Using 0.25g airsoft BBs, I got an average velocity of 590 fps, more than enough to punch through a soup tin. With some adapted 1 gram 0.22" pellets I got an average of 355 feet per second, fairly decent.

Thanks Jack, appreciate the quick fact-check

The power is interesting, at least to me who does not dabble in HPA or hybrids.

1.
Wadded a 2" bullet head nail with tissue to fit the barrel.
From three metres it went through both sides of a metal tomato can

2.
Plastic BB at 3 metres went through 4mm of cement fibre board then smashed into the whiteboard on the wall behind and made a bloody great crater in the surface about 5mm deep. Bugger it !

3.
At fifteen metres across the back yard a 10mm plastic BB punched a hole through both sides of a laundry bucket, doesn't sound like much but these little BB's are so brittle you can crush them under your boot and that bucket was thick hard plastic. One stuffed bucket and one pissed wife.

There is NO trace of the BB after impact, it just shatters into dust but boy it does some damage. More to follow.

Lucky kids :)

I'm guessing it was MrC, for the sake of the forum and the hobby at large I have no such powers ;)
